Wart Therapy Treatments

There are more than 3 million cases of warts in the United States yearly.

Warts are often annoying, cosmetically displeasing and depending on size or location may actually cause significant discomfort or pain. Warts also referred to as verruca vulgaris are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) and spread through contact. There are over 150 strains of the HPV virus but only a few types cause common warts.

At Mahoney Dermatology, our providers specialize and develop custom wart therapy for each individual patient. Some of our most common wart treatments include:

  • Liquid Nitrogen
  • Candida Immunotherapy
  • Prescription wart medications

Most commonly wart therapy treatments require several visits but this varies depending on factors such as wart location, size, number and patient’s age. Some tips to decrease the spread of warts include:

  • Avoid picking at warts
  • Do not use the same pumice stone, emery board or nail clippers on your warts as you use on healthy skin. Always use a disposable emery board.
  • Avoid shaving areas that have warts and if you must use an electric razor.
