WARTS – VIRAL INFECTION OF SKIN 

 

WHAT ARE WARTS? WHY DO THEY OCCUR?
Tiny, discrete rough looking outgrowths on skin, which can occur anywhere on body, are called warts. They occur due to viral invasion in skin through some cut. Virus slowly proliferates inside skin giving rise to rough outgrowths called warts.

WHY ONE NEEDS TO REMOVE THEM?
They need to be removed to stop their further spread. If not removed, virus would spread to nearby skin giving rise to newer warts.

HOW CAN THEY BE REMOVED?
Co2 ablative laser or radiofrequency would burn off the wart leaving normal skin behind.

CAN’T A CREAM OR PILL HELP?
Cream would lead to extremely slow removal of warts. This gives virus time to spread further to the nearby skin forming of newer warts.

WOULD IT PAIN?
No, it won’t pain it’s since done after giving local anesthesia.

WILL IT LEAVE A SCAR?
No, It won’t leave a scar.

WILL IT RECUR?
In case virus has already spread to nearby skin, new warts can appear. They need to be taken out as soon as they appear thereby eliminating their chance of further spread.

IS IT SAFE?
Yes, it’s very safe provided done by an expert using higher end machines.
