What is a wart?
Typically small and hard, a wart is a non-cancerous skin growth that is triggered by a virus in the superficial layer of skin. Warts usually appear flesh-colored and can feel rough. The appearance of a wart can vary on the location of its growth.
Warts can develop on numerous parts of the body, although they are usually found on the hands or feet. Warts found on the feet are referred to as plantar warts. Plantar warts are typically flat in appearance since walking can keep them level with the skin. Whether plantar or otherwise, if a wart is causing you discomfort, be sure to schedule a consultation with us so that we may assess and determine an appropriate treatment for you.
How do people develop warts?
Warts are most commonly caused by the HPV virus. Similar to that of getting a cold, some people are more prone to developing warts than others. While warts are contagious and can be spread from person to person, the risk is relatively small.
Which wart removal treatment may be right for me?
We offer several treatments that can help treat warts. Our team can best decide which of those treatments may be right for you once the wart(s) have been evaluated and your medical history has been reviewed.
