Warts Q & A

What are warts?

Warts are a skin infection that causes rough, bumpy growths to appear on your skin. They may develop anywhere on the body but most often affect the hands, feet, face, and knees.

Warts occur when you come in contact with the human papillomavirus (HPV), which is a highly contagious virus. You can get warts when you touch a wart or touch something that came in contact with a wart, such as a door handle or shared towel. The virus then enters your body through a cut or break in your skin.

Warts affect people of all ages but are more common in children. 

What are the types of warts?

There are many types of warts. Each type of wart may vary in shape, size, and location. Knowing the type of wart you have helps ensure you get the right treatment.

Wart types include:

Common warts

Common warts are hard, raised bumps with a rough surface. These types of warts may affect any area of your body but are most often on the hands and knees.

Flat warts

Flat warts appear as smooth, flat lumps. They most often affect the face and forehead.

Filiform warts

Filiform warts cause thin, threadlike growths. These types of warts may appear near the eyelids or lips.

Plantar warts

Plantar warts are on the bottom of the feet. They appear as hard, rough patches of skin that resemble a callus. 

Genital warts

Genital warts affect the genital area and appear as gray or white rough bumps.

How are warts treated?

Your warts may disappear on their own without treatment. However, for stubborn warts or warts that affect your appearance, the team at Thomas Dermatology offers many treatment options, including:

  • Cryotherapy 
  • Electrosurgery 
  • Cantharidin
  • Excision

The team may recommend multiple treatment sessions spaced out over several months to get the best results. Your provider works closely with you to develop a treatment plan that best fits your needs. 

Warts come in different shapes and sizes. Before trying over-the-counter medications to get rid of your warts, schedule an appointment at Thomas Dermatology by calling the office nearest you or booking online today.
