What are Warts?Warts in New York and New Jersey

Warts, also known as verruca, are caused by a virus and can be spread through touching.  Warts are often rough growths with a pattern of small back dots that are caused by clotting in the blood vessels.  The three types of warts are common, genital and plantar.  Common warts may disappear on their own without medical treatment, but some patients prefer treatment due to the unattractive appearance and risk of spreading warts.

What Causes Warts?

All warts are caused by the human papillomavirus, or HPV, but the different types of HPV generate different types of warts.  Common warts are normally harmless, but genital warts can lead to serious medical conditions, including cervical cancer.  Some people are at higher risk for developing common warts, including children and young adults and patients who have compromised immune systems.

How Do You Know If You Have Warts?

Common warts are most common on the fingers and hands and appear as small, rough bumps that are flesh-colored, white, pink or tan.  You may have a single wart or many warts in the same area.

How Are Warts Treated?

Common warts typically do not require treatment, but some patients seek treatment from Dr. Goldberg for cosmetic reasons.  Treatment options for warts include freezing, topical or injectable treatments, laser treatments and surgical removal.  You may need to repeat treatment for your warts as they commonly reappear.

How Can Warts Be Avoided?

Proper personal grooming is one of the best ways to prevent warts.  Skin that is broken from nail biting and improper nail care can cause warts or spread the warts you have now.  Always keep your hands clean and dry and never share manicure and pedicure tools with other people.
