Learning About The Most Common Ways For Wart Eradication

Warts are skin abnormalities that generally self heal from six months to two years after their appearance. However, in case the warts do not heal on their own or are uncomfortable and unsightly, a dermatologist can be consulted to remove them medically.

In most cases, the dermatologists would suggest medication in the form of liquid, gel, pad or ointment for eradicating the wars. These would generally contain a specific amount of salicylic acid that helps in softening and then dissolving the abnormal skin cells.

This medication needs to be used every day until the warts are dissolved. However, in case the medication fails to offer the desired results, the dermatologists might use one of the following methods for wart eradication.

  • Freezing the wart using liquid nitrogen
  • Burning off the wart using an electric needle or a laser
  • Destroying the warts by application of acids
  • Injecting bleomycin drug into the wart to kill the visrus
  • Injecting candida antigen into the wart to make the body’s immune system capable of fighting it off
  • Enhancing the body’s immune system by prescribing the tropical medication of imiquimod.

Here it is important to understand that people suffering from diabetes or having a immune system, should inform their dermatologists about these health conditions at the start of the treatment itself, to avoid any complications at a later stage.
