Generally the warts don’t require any treatment. But, if your warts are painful or spreading, or if you’re simply bothered by the way they look – then you can opt for a variety of treatment choices. The following article discusses some of the most common treatments for wart removal.
A wart is a sort of skin growth caused by human papillomavirus (HPV). Most often, this virus affects the top layer of the skin and enters the host body through cuts and bruises preset on the skin surface. HPV then causes the top layer of the skin to grow rapidly, thus forming a wart.
Common Wart Removal Treatments
Generally, the warts are harmless, but nevertheless, dermatologists do treat them. As an effective wart removal treatment, your dermatologist may use any one of the following procedures:
- Cantharidin: Treating the wart by painting it with cantharidin.
- Electro surgery and curettage: Scrapping off the wart with a sharp knife before or after electro surgery.
- Laser Treatment: Dermatologist may numb the warts before laser therapy.
- Chemical Peels: Using peeling machines every day to scrap off the warts.
For best results however, you should always prefer using laser or electro surgery treatments. But, these procedures will hurt, as parts of the skin will be removed slowly. Fortunately, you can apply Dr. Numb®, the strongest numbing cream, to numb the affected area before the treatment.
A leader in topical anesthetics, Dr. Numb® is the proven safe and 100% effective product that is widely used by dermatologists for effective wart removal.
How to Use
You just need to apply Dr. Numb® onto the affected area 1 hour prior to the procedure and carefully warp it with a saran wrap and wait till you feel the numbness. The pain associated with Laser treatment or surgery for wart removal will not bother you as you’re now all set to undertake the procedure.
