Don’t wait for them to multiply
Warts are caused by a viral infection (human papillomaviruses). They are most common in school children and their general incidence in the population is around 10 per cent. They spread by contact and this is why they are usually present on several family members. Most often, they develop on the hands and the soles of the feet, as well as on the face and genitals (genital warts).
Usually, a single wart occurs first. Later on, others develop in their vicinity or on other parts of the body. When you notice them, we recommend that you see a dermatologist as soon as possible, so that you can be sure it is a wart and not some other type of skin growth. Treatment at an early stage is the easiest, quickest and most successful.
At the SKIN centre, we use cryotherapy (treatment with liquid nitrogen) to freeze the wart. About a day later, a blister will form, which will then heal in approximately two weeks. The procedure is slightly painful. Usually, several therapies with a three-week interval are needed. Warts on the soles of the feet are the most persistent and for a few days after the treatment, it might be a little painful while walking. In addition to cryotherapy, we also use lasers to remove warts.
