What causes warts?

The human papillomavirus causes warts. It’s a virus that affects the top layer of your skin, causing skin-colored, bumpy, hard lesions. Warts can also sometimes be flat, smooth, or dark in color.

Warts are benign, which means they don’t cause cancer, but they are contagious and spread through contact.

Is there more than one type of wart?

There are several different types of warts, which are classified by where they occur on your body and what it looks like.

  • Filiform warts — finger-like warts that occur on the face
  • Plantar warts — grow inward and occur on the soles of the feet
  • Common warts — rough bumps that appear on the hands and often spread to the face
  • Flat warts — small and smooth warts that grow in large numbers anywhere on the body

If these treatments don’t work, our dermatologists may recommend more invasive procedures such as laser treatment, chemical peels, or immunotherapy. The doctor may also recommend treatment with bleomycin, which is an anti-cancer medication.

How do you treat warts?

Wart treatment depends on the type of wart you have and your personal health. After an examination, the doctor develops a specific treatment plan to help eradicate your warts.

  • Not scratching or picking at your warts
  • Not touching someone else’s wart
  • Wearing protective footwear in public places

Once your warts are under control, the doctor can offer at-home treatments to help prevent them from getting worse, such as the use of over-the-counter wart removers with salicylic acid. This type of treatment may take several weeks to get rid of the wart, however.

Covering up the wart may also help prevent it from spreading.

If you’re looking for treatment for your warts, call Maiden Lane Medical to book an appointment with the doctor or use the online booking agent.
