Warts are annoying and difficult to treat, because they do not have any particular cure.
If you are embarrassed by wart on your face, foot, hand or different body part, we hope that we can help you by telling you how to get rid of them.
What are warts?
Warts are caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) and they can take some time to go completely away. Sometimes they can disappear in a period of a few weeks and in some cases that period may even be measured in years! Note that no matter which technique you use, you should be patient and give it time to work.
The quickest way to remove warts completely is if you use 100% TCA. This technique usually requires less than ten days to work.
You can use 100% trichloroacetic acid (TCA) or salicylic acid
The majority of wart removers like Occlusal and Compound W, include salicylic acid in their products.
Use duct tape
There are number of researches that study the effectiveness of duct tape in eliminating warts. DTOT (duct tape occlusion remedy) localizes the medication in the wart area and essentially chokes the wart. It was discovered that if you use imiquimod 5% cream in a combination with duct tape, it can be used to cure commonplace warts. It is important to note that this method takes a long time to work (in some cases even up to 6 months) and people don’t see much success with this method.
Liquid nitrogen is another method that can be used for wart treatment. This method freezes the wart, and it may take a few treatment sessions, but it is very effective. The drawback to this method is that if by any chance it doesn’t work, there is a risk of the wart appearing bigger than before, and it will take much more time to be completely removed.
Burn the wart
This is quite a painful process, and the burning can cause scarring, so we recommend that you let your doctor perform this procedure.
Have your physician cut it out
Leave this option as your last resort. You will need to consult with your doctor and then have him surgically removing the wart. It is a delicate and complicated procedure that should only be performed by a professional and qualified physician.
