Wart Treatment

Warts are a com­mon skin con­di­tion that may or may not go away with­out treat­ment. Your der­ma­tol­o­gist may pre­scribe a vari­ety of treat­ment options, includ­ing can­tharidin to cause the for­ma­tion of a blis­ter under the wart, cryother­a­py to freeze the wart, elec­tro­surgery and curet­tage to scrape and burn the wart off, or exci­sion to cut out the wart. Oth­er pro­ce­dures for hard-to-treat warts may include laser ther­a­py, chem­i­cal peels, bleomycin shots, or immunotherapy.
