Frequently Asked Questions About Warts

Frequently Asked Questions About Wart Removal

What are Warts?

These small growths that may occur anywhere on the skin, but are oftentimes seen on the hands, feet and face. While they are not cancerous, warts can be painful, especially if located on the bottom of your foot. They may also be particularly embarrassing, and can spread if not properly treated.

Who gets them?

Warts are commonly seen in all age groups and all skin types, but children and people with weakened immune systems are at higher risk. Although they sometimes disappear on their own, this natural process could take months or even years.


What causes Warts?

Warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). There are over 100 different strains of this contagious virus. This means that it’s possible to get it by touching someone else. This risk is increased if the skin is broken, or inflamed from a rash like eczema.

How does a dermatologist treat them?

While it is possible for your body to naturally clear warts, it is best to seek treatment as you can spread them to your loved ones. On consultation at Eternal Dermatology, Dr. Rodney will first diagnose your wart by looking at it. It is possible that some types of skin cancer can look like warts. In these cases, a biopsy may be needed to determine if it is indeed a wart.

Many over the counter wart remedies are available, but these usually give subpar results. Medical grade treatments, including freezing, shaving, or application of topical medications, are available at Eternal Dermatology.  For the best dermatologist and wart specialist in Columbia MD, book your appointment online or by phone today.
