Wart Removal Melbourne

A wart is a small skin growth with a rough texture that can appear in any part of the body. Typically, its appearance depends on the body area where it grew and the thickness of the skin. In most cases, it looks like a solid blister or sometimes it resembles a small cauliflower.

Just like unwanted moles or skin lesions, warts can also be removed through cosmetic treatments. It is best to visit your trusted clinic for a consultation on how you can treat those unwanted warts.

Types of Warts

Plantar Wart

As the term implies, plantar warts are usually found on the sole of your foot. Plantar meaning “of the sole” in Latin. This type of wart is typically flat, tough, and thick, hence, it is easily confused with calluses.

The pressure from walking and standing causes the plantar wart to grow. If you see little black spots or dots on the surface of what you think are calluses, sadly these are plantar warts.

Common Wart

These type of warts are flesh-coloured growths which are most often seen on the backs of hands, the fingers, the skin around nails. Common warts can also be seen on the feet. They are small pea-sized hard bumps.

Some may confuse them with moles but common warts may have black dots that look like seeds. These black dots are really tiny blood clots. In most instances, they show up where the skin was broken, perhaps from biting your fingernails. Common warts are contagious and can be transferred from your hands to your face.

Periungual Wart

These type of warts form around the finger or toenails. The wart grows like a pinhead-sized, smooth, shiny, and translucent cluster. Then, it continues to develop into a size of a pea and have a cauliflower-like appearance over several weeks.

Periungual warts can also turn brown, grey, or black. In some cases, larger periungual warts may cause pain and discomfort in the affected area.

Filiform Wart

These fast-growing warts have a spiky appearance which sometimes looks like tiny brushes. Since they tend to grow on the face, usually around your mouth, eyes, and nose, they are also referred to as facial warts. They can be annoying since they grow on the face but they are not usually painful.

Genital Wart

This type of wart is acquired by having sex with a person who has them. They may look like small, scattered, skin-coloured bumps or like a cluster of bumps similar to tiny cauliflower on your genitals. And as much as they can spread to other parts of your body, they can also be transferred to other people through sex.

FAQ

All you need to know about Wart Removal

What causes warts to grow?

The main cause why a wart grows is the human papillomavirus. When HPV penetrates into the cut on the skin, it causes a skin infection that forms warts.

Unfortunately, warts are very contagious. The virus can spread from one part of the body to another and even from person to person.

Transmission of warts can be done through any of the following:

  • Direct contact with a wart;
  • Touching something contaminated with the virus, such as towels, doorknobs and slippers;
  • Sexual intercourse for genital warts;
  • Sucking your fingers;
  • Patients who tend to nail-bite and pick their cuticles.
  • Cause cuts during shaving.

How can you prevent the growth of warts?

To prevent the growth of warts, patients need to ensure that they do not get in contact with human papillomavirus. It may be difficult to assess what things are contaminated by the virus, or which persons are infected with HPV since the virus is prevalent.

Here are, however, some ways to avoid contracting HPV:

  • Wash the hands regularly;
  • Break the habit of biting your nails or picking at cuticles;
  • Avoid shaving over a wart;
  • Do not touch another person’s wart including the surrounding area, and items that have come into contact with them;
  • Wear protective gloves when washing the dishes;
  • Do not share towels, nail polish, washcloths, clothing, nail clippers, razors or other personal items;
  • Get the HPV vaccine and use condoms to prevent genital warts;
  • Disinfect nail clippers and similar equipment after each use;
  • Keep your feet dry to prevent the spread of plantar warts; and
  • Prevent yourself from scratching, cutting or picking at a wart.

Available Wart Treatment in Melbourne

As there is a broad variety of warts, there is also a wide array of wart removal methods that can eliminate and prevent the growth of warts. Most of these treatments are designed to irritate the skin while activating the body’s own infection-fighting cells to clear your warts.

Laser Treatment Options

Laser wart removal uses a light beam in clearing off warts. This treatment can be a good choice if your wart is around your fingernails or toenails. It is most effective for widespread warts or those that are large and have not responded to other treatment methods like liquid nitrogen freezing or chemical burns.

The laser wart removal procedure uses an ablative laser mode, which treats any infected tissue and seals up the wound to prevent bleeding. This is most ideal for periungual and plantar warts.

Podiatry Treatment

This kind of treatment focuses on skin conditions and medical issues associated with the feet. When you feel pain in your foot or lower leg, it is best to find a podiatrist in Melbourne you can trust. One of the many conditions they treat is a plantar wart and other forms of infections on the foot and lower leg.

Patients either children or adults suffering from plantar wart can visit a podiatrist to address what caused their plantar warts to develop. This can then help prevent the future development of a wart.

Cryotherapy

This wart removal treatment involves freezing off warts using liquid nitrogen. Cryotherapy is often a quicker treatment than using salicylic acid. However, a patient may require a number of sessions for warts to be treated.

Surgery

Surgical treatments are not a common procedure for wart removal. In most cases, skin clinic will recommend the application of a topical cream in treating warts. However, if all other non-surgical treatments do not work, your doctor may recommend surgery.

How to find a wart removal treatment in Melbourne?

Whether children or adults, patients may visit their trusted clinic in Melbourne to have their lesions check to ensure that they are not warts. Often, warts and lesions are confused with each other. Thus, a doctor should evaluate the condition and address what caused warts to grow.
