These are common skin growths caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). They can occur on any part of the body, including the hands, feet, face, and genital area. There are several treatments available for warts, depending on their size, location, and type.

Here are some of the common treatment options for warts:

  1. Over-the-counter treatments: There are several over-the-counter wart treatments available, such as salicylic acid, which work by removing the top layer of the wart. These treatments may take several weeks to be effective and may cause skin irritation.
  2. Cryotherapy: Cryotherapy involves freezing the wart with liquid nitrogen. The freezing causes a blister to form around the wart, which eventually falls off. This treatment may need to be repeated several times to be effective.
  3. Laser therapy: Laser therapy involves using a laser to destroy the blood vessels feeding the wart, which causes it to die and fall off. This treatment is usually reserved for larger or stubborn warts.
