Are you tired of trying to hide your wart? Warts can be frustrating to deal with and can drain your confidence in your appearance. There are some concerns that come with warts other than their appearance. Warts can spread across the body and are known to be contagious. Get rid of your wart and your worries with wart treatment.
What are Warts?
A wart is a raised condition on the skin that is typically caused by a viral infection. Warts can spread across your body and can be contagious to others. Warts, depending on their location, can obstruct your sight or make daily tasks more difficult. Aside from the medical effects, warts can take away from a person’s appearance as well.
When Should Someone See Our Specialist?
A person with warts should make an appointment with our specialist to have their wart removed if it’s on a sensitive area like the mouth, if it is painful, changes color, bleeds, or shows sign of infection. Getting your wart removed as soon as possible is important to make sure it does not spread or lead to further complications.
What is Wart Treatment Like?
Common warts usually go away on their own, but it can take up to two years for them to do so. Within that time, they can spread across your body and to others.
There are several different medical treatments for common warts. They are intended to encourage the immune system to fight the virus and destroy the wart. Depending on the treatment type, treatment could take some time. Your treatment time depends on your personal wart condition.
Before removal, Dr. Lamant may use a mild anesthetic to minimize discomfort. Wart treatment is done in the comfort of our office in Guelph. After treatment, you can return to your daily activities with no required downtime. You may experience some minor skin irritation after treatment, but this will dissipate on its own with time. Once your skin has healed, you no longer have to worry about your warts appearance or the possibility of it spreading.
