What are Warts?

Warts are growths that occur on the skin as a result of infection. They are more specifically caused by a viral infection from certain strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV is extremely common, and you come into contact with it virtually every day, but some kinds can infect the skin through small scratches or cuts and cause a wart to form. Warts are generally harmless, but they should be treated by a dermatologist before they spread to other areas of the body or other people.

What Are the Symptoms of Warts?

Warts don’t usually improve on their own. People who are most likely to get warts are those with weakened immune systems (like children) or people who bite or pick at their fingers and nails. This can cause many different openings in the skin through which HPV can enter.

Warts are usually recognizable just by looking at them or feeling them. They can include:

  • Raised, rough bumps
  • Small dots or “seeds” on the skin
  • Colorless
  • Rapid growth
  • Clusters

What Are My Treatment Options?

Warts are easily treated with the help of your dermatologist. In some cases, your dermatologist can prescribe medications to use at home. In other cases, your dermatologist can remove them through a quick, in-office appointment. This might include techniques like cryotherapy, excision, or other removal methods. In some cases, warts can be the result of cancerous activity so your dermatologist will determine whether a biopsy is needed. If you’re prone to warts because you’re immunocompromised, your dermatologist can recommend ways to boost your immune system and help your body fight off new infections.
