General Summary

Warts are common benign skin growths caused by viruses. Different warts require different treatments; some require mild topical treatments, while others are more resistant to treatment and require repeated aggressive treatment or surgical removal. Orlando Dermatologist Kathleen Judge offers a wide range of wart removal treatment options including:

  • Salicylic Acid Products (e.g. drops, gels, pads and bandages)
  • Liquid Nitrogen Treatment (Cryosurgery)
  • Surgical Removal (For large or painful warts)

Please be aware that because warts are benign viral growths, they can continue to appear over time, and it is common for them to recur after any type of treatment. There is no way to prevent the recurrence of treated lesions or the growth of new lesions.
