The Importance of Early Detection and Treatment of Skin Warts

Do you have warts that make you self-conscious or that are causing you any discomfort? Dr. Anthony Dee and the team at the Dermatologic Center for Excellence in Clarence and Buffalo, NY can provide the best treatment for your needs.

Guide To Warts and the Importance of Early Detection

 A wart is a growth on the skin that is typically flesh-colored and doesn’t create any symptoms. However, they can be uncomfortable at times, cause itching, and are often embarrassing. They can appear on various areas of the body, including but not limited to the hands, genitals, and feet. 

Where Do Warts Come From?

 The root of these skin growths is typically the contraction of HPV or human papillomavirus, of which there are more than 200 strains. This virus is typically passed through sexual contact, but it can also spread through even small cuts or abrasions in the skin. 

Importance of Diagnosis and Treatment

 Not all warts require treatment, but many do. Visiting Dr. Dee at the Dermatologic Center for Excellence of Clarence and Buffalo, NY can help determine if any action needs to be taken.

You may be wondering why treatment is necessary at all if the wart is not bothering you and if the wart itself is harmless. The bottom line is that it comes down to the infection causing the wart. This infection is contagious, meaning that you can pass it on to your loved ones.

It’s important to understand that getting rid of the warts doesn’t rid you of HPV. However, your dermatologist can recommend any additional treatment methods that can help.

Additionally, early detection makes you aware of the issue at hand. You can work with your dermatologist on a personalized plan for preventing the spread of the virus. It also allows any wart that might create pain or discomfort to be treated long before it becomes an issue. The earlier you begin any treatment and lifestyle adjustments, the better the chances of a swift and successful outcome. 

Determine if your warts are anything to be concerned about, how to prevent spreading them, and what treatment technique might be needed with the help of Dr. Dee. Call (716) 759-7759 to schedule an appointment at the Dermatologic Center for Excellence in Clarence and Buffalo, NY.
