Skin care is something that is often left low on the priority list. This said, there are some skin conditions that are bothersome and draw attention that you are likely to want to deal with. Warts can be a problem for some depending on where they are located and how long they have been there. Your Buffalo, NY, dermatologist, Dr. Anthony Dee from Dermatologic Center for Excellence, is the best place to start gathering information about your wart.
Warts are typically small growths that are considered to be harmless and appear often on the hands and feet of individuals of all ages. These are created due to Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and often appear where there has been a cut or scratch. They can spread from one person to another and from location to location on the body. They are noncancerous and in most cases completely painless. They can, however, be uncomfortable if they are between fingers and toes. Common warts in some cases can disappear on their own, but they may need some assistance. There are many treatment options available including laser surgery to heat up and kill off the wart, cryotherapy to freeze off the wart, electrosurgery to use electrical current to kill the tissue, non-prescription products for freezing and salicylic acid to dissolve the wart’s proteins and effectively kill it. Your Buffalo dermatologist can also provide additional options that may work better for your situation.
