what are warts?

Warts

Warts
Warts are small, usually painless growths on the skin caused by a virus called human papillomavirus (HPV). Most, but not all, are generally harmless. Warts can be disfiguring and embarrassing. Sometimes they itch or hurt (particularly on the feet). Some warts spread through sex.

Warts in fingers?

Thumb
Freezing (cryotherapy, or liquid nitrogen therapy). Your doctor may use liquid nitrogen to destroy your wart by freezing it. This treatment is usually only mildly painful and is often effective, although you may need repeated treatments. Freezing works by causing a blister to form under and around your wart. Then, the dead tissue sloughs off within a week or so. You can try OTC like Salacilic Acid

Dr. Karen Han answered:

How to remove warts?

Salicylic acid

Water
If the wart is small and not on face, I generally recommend doing the following every other day for 2 wks: soaking wart with warm water, gently thin out the wart with an emory board, apply liquid 17% salicylic acid, cover with 40% salicylic acid tape, then apply duct tape (or surgical tape) over it to occlude. The wart will soften and peel off. Some require liquid nitrogen or laser treatments.

Dr. Jerome Litt answered:

how do I treat warts?

WART TREATMENTS

Warts
DEPENDS ON HOW LONG YOU HAVE HAD THEM. ALSO DEPENDS ON WHERE THE WARTS ARE. ALSO HOW MANY WARTS? FOR FINGERS, TOES? GENITALS? FOR FINGERS AND TOES, FOR INSTANCE, MANY OVER-THE-COUNTER WART MEDICATIONS LIKE COMPOUND W, WART-OFF, WARTAWAY SOMETIMES WORK. DERMATOLOGISTS OFTEN FREEZE OFF WARTS. WARTS ON THE SOLES ARE VERY DIFFICULT TO GET RID OF. SEE A DERMATOLOGISTS IF THEY ARE STUBBORN.

How can I treat warts?

Patience

Warts
Most warts will eventually go away on their own. There are over the counter topical medications that can be used. A physician can remove them by a variety of means - surgical excision, cryotherapy, cautery, topical prescription medications. If they are causing problems, more aggressive treatment is warranted.
