Warts

What are Warts?


Warts are small, non-cancerous, contagious growths caused by a strain of the human papilloma virus (HPV).

Cause


When the HPV virus invades the outer layer of skin, usually through a tiny scratch, It can cause rapid growth of cells on the outer layer of skin creating the wart.

The treatment will initiate drying, crusting, scabbing and shrinking of the tissue until eventual removal will take place. Permanent removal of warts can be tricky, and sometimes they can return.

How many treatments?


Treatment of warts needs to be quite aggressive to be successful, and so multiple treatments will be required.

Please be aware GP approval will be needed prior to treatment.
