Treatment for Wart

Updated on March 19, 2009

 

It might be necessary to seek treatment for wart unless you suffer from pain or discomfort caused by these tiny lumps on your skin. Treatment for wart can be to prevent it from spreading to other parts of your body, or so that you can improve the appearance of your skin.

 

Treatment for wart may come as home treatments such as salicylic acid based plaster, cream or paste. Topical solutions and treatment for wart are sold over-the-counter, and cannot cause any irritation as long as the package instructions are followed by the user.

 

If home treatment for wart does not help much, and you keep getting recurring warts, or if your warts become unresponsive to such treatments, then it will be best to consult your doctor. Most physicians would recommend some common treatment for warts, depending on the gravity of the symptoms and your budget or insurance coverage. For young children, doctors would normally start at the least painful and least destructive level.

 

Medical treatment for wart literally “kills” your warts. Cryotherapy is the method of freezing warts using liquid nitrogen therapy. This is often an effective treatment for wart and can make you feel a tolerable amount of pain during treatment. Cryotherapy might require repeated sessions. When freezing is done on your wart, a blister will form under it and sloughs off the wart together with the dead tissue that falls off after at least a week.

 

Cantharidin is also another substance used as treatment for wart, which is a substance from blister beetle that’s mixed with some chemicals. Application of cantharidin is not really painful, but once skin blister forms on the skin, it might be painful. The blister will separate the wart from your skin, making it easier for the doctor to remove the dead cells of the wart itself.

Other surgical procedures as treatment for wart include minor surgery and laser surgery. Minor surgery involves cutting off the wart or disintegrating it using electrodessication or sometimes called curettage. Laser surgery is usually applied to warts which are difficult to treat, and can be very expensive.
