If you’re concerned about a wart or verruca, speak to one of our expert dermatologists. They’ll complete an examination of the area and ask you about it – how long you’ve had it and how it affects you.
We have a number of ways to remove warts and veruccas. Your dermatologist will recommend the best treatment based on the type and location. The most common techniques to remove warts and veruccas include:
Your dermatologist can recommend a number of creams and gels that contain salicylic acid, which can help treat warts and verrucas.
Your dermatologist may recommend cryotherapy to remove your wart. This treatment involves freezing the wart with liquid nitrogen.
Your dermatologist may recommend a treatment called diphencyprone (DCP) immunotherapy, which can help treat stubborn warts.
Sometimes it may be appropriate to remove the mole surgically by excision.
