Warts are small cuts like skin infection on the feet, hand, beard, and genitalia that are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). It generally affects the moist and warm places of the body and is usually painless. However, they can be painful if they are on the sole of feet or any other body part that gets touched all the time. Wart removal is important keeping mind the various health and aesthetic benefits. Various treatments available for removing wart include:
Freezing (Cryotherapy) - In this process, the warts are destroyed using liquid nitrogen. The liquid nitrogen causes the surrounding skin to form a blister that gets sloughed off and the wart is removed along with blister and dead skin. For using the freezing technique, multiple treatments may be required.
Laser Treatment- The laser is used to burn the infected tissue which makes the skin dead and as a result, the wart falls off.
Acid- Lactic acid and salicylic acid are used to remove the dead layers of the skin and treat warts. These solutions act as peeling agents and peel off the wart from the skin.
Radiofrequency ablation- In this process, heat from radiofrequency is used for killing the wart tissue. The procedure is carried under the effect of local anesthesia.
