Warts and verrucae are a commonly round or hemispherical, pale yellow or rough surface with a dirty grey, rough, the dotted surface that does not itch, does not cause inflammation, it only hurts if it is injured (for example cracking). Warts and verrucae can persist for years without treatment, and sometimes they disappear spontaneously without a trace. Nevertheless, their removal is advantageous and needed as soon as possible. There are several ways to get rid of them, in this article we will introduce the three most popular ways.
Wart and verruca removal by cream
One of the most widespread ways to remove warts and verrucae by home remedy is using a cream or brush. This cream is available in many pharmacies and drug stores, generally with a corrosive solution because of the added salicylic acid. In case of using removal cream, the dead, upper part of the wart or verrucae should be gently removed daily. This medication should be continued for several weeks.
Nitrogen freezing, which is nowadays available not only in dermatology but also by home remedy, is also a common method for removing warts and verrucae. One of the benefits of nitrogen freezing is that it is a quick and effective method with a little pain. After freezing, a blister develops at the previous place of the wart or verruca, which, when opened sterile, heals within a few days. It may be necessary to repeat the freezing two or three times for permanent removal.
Laser wart removal (recommended)
Wart Removal by laser is maybe the most effective treatment to get avoid from warts and verrucae. The laser removal is totally painless, giving an almost perfect result, and only needing one session for a permanent result. To remove the lesion, a local anaesthetic will be injected into the infected area and the lesion will be removed using a laser. The laser beam virtually destroys warts and verrucae, and it will be removed along with its root. There is no recovery time and the treated areas will only look shabby and a little darker than the surrounding skin. The scab will fall off in a few days, and there will no stitches left.
Although warts and verruca in most cases are harmless, it is always advised to have lesions pre-checked by GP before making an appointment. If the histological diagnosis is imperative, then it is better dealt under NHS care.
