What are warts?
Millions of people each year suffer from warts (verruca vulgaris), a skin growth that is caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). The HPV causes quick growth of cells on your skin’s outer layer. This results in skin growths that are skin colored and feel rough, or can be a dark brown or gray-black color, flat, and smooth. The most common type of warts are those found on the fingers, around the fingernails, and on the back of the hands. These types of warts are characterized by little black dots that look like seeds inside the wart and a rough surface. Another common type of wart is the plantar wart. These types of warts are most often found on the bottom of the feet, they grow inward, and can have black dots in them. Because the wart grows inward this can make the plantar wart quite uncomfortable feeling as if there are tiny rocks inside your shoe. Flat warts are another type of wart that can occur anywhere. They are smaller and smoother than other types of wars, and tend to develop in large numbers.
What treatment options are available?
When it comes to winning the battle against warts there are countless ideas and at home wart remedies. At Bella Dermatology Dr. Sharpe MD, and her expert team of skin care professionals, have been diagnosing and treating skin care challenges, such as warts, for years. With all of these years of experience and success in treating warts it puts them in the best position possible to help you and your family win the battle against warts. There are a variety of professional treatment options available that Dr. Sharpe, and her team, may recommend. One potential treatment is freezing the wart, also known as cryotherapy. When this treatment is used, a blister will form around the wart and the dead tissue falls off within one to two weeks of treatment. Depending upon the type of wart, the wart may need to be removed by means of surgery. This involves cutting away the wart, and then eliminating the base of the wart. Laser surgery may also be a recommended treatment designed to burn and destroy wart tissue. This type of treatment utilizes an intense beam of light (laser). Whatever type of wart that you or your loved one is dealing with, you can rest assured that our experienced and professional medical staff are dedicated to providing you with the best treatment option or options.
