Warts Properties

Warts are common skin growths caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). They can appear on various parts of the body as hands, feet, face, and genitals. Warts are typically harmless but can be bothersome or cosmetically undesirable. There are several treatment options available for warts, depending on their size, location, and the individual’s preference:

Over-the-counter (OTC) treatments: There are various OTC wart treatments available, such as salicylic acid solutions, gels, or adhesive pads. These treatments work by gradually dissolving the wart tissue over time. It’s important to follow the instructions carefully and be consistent with the application to achieve the desired results.

Cryotherapy:involves freezing the wart with liquid nitrogen, which causes the wart tissue to blister and eventually fall off. This treatment is typically performed by a healthcare professional and may require multiple sessions for complete wart removal.
Chemosurgery: involves the application of a chemical product called Silver Nitrate to the wart for a short period of time, it makes chemical reaction with it and leads to resolve the wart. This treatment is typically performed by a healthcare professional and may require few sessions for complete wart removal.

Electrosurgery or curettage: Electrosurgery involves using an electrical current to burn or destroy the wart tissue, while curettage involves scraping off the wart with a curette. These procedures are typically performed under local anesthesia, and the wound is usually sutured afterward.
Laser therapy: Laser treatment uses a focused laser beam to destroy the wart tissue. This treatment option is generally reserved for more resistant or extensive warts.
