What are warts?

Warts are the skin growths that appear on various parts of the body like feet, face, genitals and hands. They are caused by a virus known as Human Papillomavirus. Warts can be transmitted through direct skin contact and can also be spread by sharing the personal items of the infected person. Though warts are harmless and go on their own, but their presence on the person’s body greatly affect the self-esteem of a aperson. Fortunately, with the development of science and technology, there are now several ways to treat wart. You just have to find the right clinic and right dermatologist to treat you. If you too are looking for the treatment of your warts, you are just at the right place. 

Types of warts-Know which type you have

There are several different types of warts and each type has a different treatment option. The common types of warts are:

  • Common Warts: These types of warts appear on hands or fingers and are characterized by a rough surface with black dots in it. They are unpleasant to sight but are often harmless.
  • Flat warts: They are small and smooth warts and are generally less than 3mm in size. They can be found on face, legs and necks. They occur in large number that is why their removal becomes necessary.
  • Plantar Warts:Plantar warts are very painful and they appear on the soles of feet. They pain alot especially when a person stands or walks. They are often mistaken as corns but they are characterized by small dots in the center.
  • Genital warts: These types of warts appear around the genitals and are transmitted sexually. They can be small or large and are often itchy and painful. These warts should be removed as they can turn into cancer if not removed timely. 

What are the causes of warts?

Viruses like the human papillomavirus (HPV) are the primary cause of warts. You can still get warts, though, if you have several factors.

  • It’s highly contagious and can be spread through direct skin-to-skin contact with an infected person.
  • Warts are more likely to develop in people with weak immune systems, such as those with HIV/AIDS, cancer, or autoimmune diseases.
  • The risk of getting warts is higher if your skin has been damaged or injured, like from biting your nails or picking at your hangnails.
  • Children and young adults have more warts because their immune systems are still developing, plus they may have more skin-to-skin contact.

Not every person who gets HPV will get warts. It’s possible that some people have natural immunity to the virus, while others may be carriers without showing any symptoms.

When to see the doctor?

Most warts go away with time and without any treatment. However, it may take a long time for them to go away in adults.  You should see the doctor when:

  • The warts are painful
  • The warts are on genitals
  • Your immune system is compromised
  • Your warts are spreading at a faster rate
  • You are either pregnant or trying to get pregnant

Treatment options we offer at AISHH

Dr Indu Kumari offers several treatment options for warts. Depending on the first consultation, she will decide the best option for you. The various treatment options available at AISHH are:

  • Topical Method: In Topical treatments, creams and solutions are applied directly to the wart. They cause the skin cells to peel away and the warts eventually fall off. This treatment is least expensive and least painful as compared to all other treatments. The results may show in several weeks. However, the success rate may vary from person to person. 
  • Cryotherapy: In this therapy, liquid nitrogen is used that freezes the wart tissue. The frozen blood vessels form a hematoma under the wart and then it eventually falls. The procedure is not painful but may cause a slight throbbing sensation. After the entire treatment, the wart is drained by the dermatologist. The healing process takes a week and the treatment is usually repeated after 3 to 4 weeks.
  • Radio Frequency: Removal of warts through radio waves is the newest way to remove warts from the skin. The procedure starts with the application of local anesthesia and radio waves are then administered over the surface of warts that makes it evaporate. The wound takes approximately 6 to 7 days to heal. This treatment option is used to treat:
    • Common warts
    • Foot warts
    • Warts on face and neck

This treatment is particularly preffered by deramatologists, as it does not leave any scar, post inflammatory pigmentation or repetition of surgery.

Laser Removal: The principle of laser removal is the same as the principle of radio wave removal-heating and evaporating the wart. Since the skin is damaged more during the procedure, healing takes longer than other methods.

Surgical Removal: Surgical removal involves cutting or scraping off the wart under local anaesthesia. It is usually reserved for larger or deeper warts that do not respond to other treatment options and cannot be treated with surgery. In the case of surgical removal, it is a quick and effective procedure, but it may leave behind a scar.

Immunotherapy: In this treatment option, the immune system of the patient is used to fight against warts. The treatment is used when all other treatments fail to respond. It involves application of DCP( Diphencyprone) to warts. In other method, shots of interferon are given. These shots boost the immunity and give strength to fight warts.

Tips to prevent warts

Here are some steps you can perform to stop the spread of the virus. 

  • Avoid sharing your towel, razors and personal items with people. 
  • Do not touch the wart of another person at all.
  • Get the HPV vaccine and always use condoms to avoid genital warts
  • Do not scratch or cut a wart
  • Contact the health care provider immediately if the wart breaks open or starts bleeding. It is necessary to avoid the spread of the warts.

What to expect during the wart removal treatment?

  • You’ll receive treatment for warts depending on their type, location, size, and your personal preferences. Here’s what you can expect during different types of wart removal:
  • If you go for a topical treatment, your doctor applies cream or solution directly to the wart. Depending on how bad the wart is, it may need to be repeated daily or weekly for several weeks or months.
  • During cryotherapy, your doctor applies liquid nitrogen to the wart, which freezes the tissue and destroys it. The treatment might feel stingy or burning, but it shouldn’t last too long.
  • The laser therapy destroys wart tissue using a high-intensity beam of light. Most people tolerate the treatment well, but it can hurt a little.
  • In surgical removal, the doctor uses a scalpel or other surgical instrument to cut or scrape off the wart after numbing the area around it. While there may be some pain and discomfort, it’s usually a quick and easy procedure.

Things to expect after the treatment

It’s possible to experience some mild pain, redness, or swelling after wart removal. If you’re in pain, your doctor will tell you how to manage it. You might also have to avoid certain activities until the area is completely healed, like swimming and hot tubs.

To ensure a successful recovery and prevent complications, follow your doctor’s instructions carefully. You should also see your doctor for follow-up appointments so you can make sure the wart doesn’t come back.
