Wart is a contagious skin ailment that is caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). There are several ways in which one may get infected and develop warts. Depending on the severity of the condition, Dr. Syed at the Royal Lush clinic provides a variety of wart removal treatment in Delhi. Continue reading ahead to know about the causes, symptoms, and various treatment options for warts.

Wart is a localised skin growth that is secondary to some viral skin infections known as HPV– Human Papillomavirus leading to superficial skin growth. This skin condition spreads by direct skin-to-skin contact but unlike other viral infections, the growth is slow. It is common in school children and in people who work or live-in close contact.

Causes of Wart

The single cause of warts is a virus called Human papillomavirus (HPV) as mentioned earlier. HPV enters the circulation through wounds or from skin-to-skin contact. It leads to the formation of warts by excessive production of keratin that leads to its buildup. Keratin is a protein that is located on the top layer of our skin. As a result, the wart seems hard and thick.

Warts can be caused by a variety of HPV strains. HPV is very infectious and may spread from person to person. Constant use of public restrooms, sharing footwear, clothing, or any contact with someone/something (infected inanimate objects) who already has a wart increases the likelihood of getting one. Other regions of the body might also develop warts if you already have an existing one.

Other ways for the virus to travel from one body area to another include:

  • Touching or scratching the existing wart
  • Shaving
  • Wounded skin
  • Nail-biting

The risk of wart transmission is lower in adults but higher in children and newborns. People who have a weakened or suppressed immune system are more likely to get an HPV strain that causes warts.

Symptoms of Wart

Warts are usually easier to spot and identify; however, it is crucial to determine which type of wart it is for the proper treatment plan.

Based on the appearance and the region of the body it grows on, types of warts are:

  • Common warts (verruca vulgaris)

A common wart appears:

  • Circular in shape

Wart Removal Treatment in Delhi

Warts often disappear on their own without necessitating a treatment, especially among children. However medical intervention is needed when an adult develops warts as they may take longer to heal.

When the warts are too painful and large in number, it is advised to seek a dermatologist. There are several options for wart removal treatment in Delhi through which warts can be treated. The type of treatment chosen is determined by the patient's age, medical status, and type of wart.

Considering the ugly appearance of warts, its potential impact on self-confidence, we at Royal Lush have various treatment options to help you get rid of this condition. Treatment options are either topical medications that are applied over the area or some dermatological procedures for quick removal like Cryotherapy which freezes the wart’s growth and is done in multiple sessions. Another option that is performed more frequently is Electrosurgery, which is used for prompt removal in large and resistant warts. Occasionally, our doctors recommend HPV vaccines in resistant cases of anogenital warts also.

Dr. Syed may employ one or more of the following wart removal treatments in Delhi:

  • Salicylic acid

Salicylic acid is a type of topical treatment that is known to clear away many types of warts. It is one of the several successful methods of wart removal treatment in Delhi. Depending on the severity of your wart, your doctor may prescribe you to apply it for several months. Salicylic acid exists in the form of gels and paints

  • Cantharidin

Cantharidin is a blistering solution that causes a blister under the wart. The doctor paints the wart with cantharidin to induce blistering. This process removes the wart from the skin, and the wart will fall out within a few days when the blister has dried.

  • Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy or nitrogen freezing involves applying liquid nitrogen to the wart for a few seconds to freeze and kill the damaged skin cells. Large warts may need to be frozen several times before they disappear.

  • Electrosurgery and curettage

For common warts, filiform warts, and plantar warts, electrosurgery (burning) is an effective procedure. Curettage is the removal of a wart with a sharp knife. These two methods are frequently used in combination. The dermatologist may scrape the wart off before or after electrosurgery. Both electrosurgery and curettage are other common types of wart removal treatment in Delhi.

  • Excision

The surgeon will surgically cut off your wart

  • Laser treatment

Laser treatment is prescribed to patients who have stubborn warts and have not responded to prior treatments. The dermatologist may use an anaesthetic injection to numb the wart before laser therapy (shot).

  • Immunotherapy

In this method, the patient's immune system is used. A chemical is directly applied to warts to induce an immune (allergic) response that causes warts to disappear. This treatment option is only chosen when other methods have failed.
