Warts are benign growths caused by the HPV (Human Papillomavirus). They are spread through skin to skin contact or by an object that was touched by a wart. They are most commonly found on the hands, feet, and face. The kind of wart is determined by its location and what it looks like.

Treatment Options

  • Immunotherapy – a chemical to stimulate an immune reaction

  • Cryotherapy – liquid nitrogen to destroy the lesion

  • Electrosurgery and curettage – electro cautery to burn the lesion then scraping with a curette (circular scalpel)

  • Cantharidin – blistering agent to destroy the wart

  • Pulsed Dye Laser – targets the blood vessels that feed the wart virus

Warts can resolve without treatment. Please call and schedule an appointment to discuss the best treatment for you 208-522-SKIN (7546).
