Warts in Devon, PA

Warts are a common skin condition, most often found on the hands, feet, and near the nails. Warts tend to look like little, scaly bumps, but they may differ in size. It is also normal for warts to develop in clusters, especially on the knees and elbows. Warts are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). Although some warts can be harmless in some cases, they still may be annoying and unattractive. Over-the-counter wart removal products are usually not enough. If you have a wart or other skin growth you want to be removed, schedule a consultation at Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Pennsylvania.

After at-home treatments, warts can often reoccur, so it is crucial to find the proper treatment to reduce these outbreaks. Freezing of a wart is a common medical therapy and is often performed with great success. With this method, liquid nitrogen will be expertly and cautiously applied to the wart and surrounding area. A blister or scab can develop around the wart, which can heal within a few days to a week or two. Other medical options are available and may be used, including various prescription topical therapies and surgical treatments that can be applied to the skin around the wart to destroy the lesion and virus.

Warts are most commonly found on the face, feet, knees, and hands. Symptoms of warts can vary, depending on the type of wart and where it is located. Common signs of warts typically include:

  • A single bump or cluster of bumps
  • A rough or smooth surface
  • Can cause itching and inflammation
  • Grainy and tender to the touch
  • Can have a soft feeling
  • May appear light tan or skin-colored with tiny, black spots within
  • Flat warts can be smaller and smoother

I met with Dr. Wang for the first time earlier this week. He and his assistant Nelly were extremely kind, thorough, and understanding. They both made sure that I was comfortable with the procedure and that all of my questions were answered.
