Wart Removal

Heidi Goodarzi MD, FAAD, specializes in diagnosing and treating a wide variety of dermatological concerns, including but not limited to the following:

A wart is a self-limiting tumor caused by human papilloma Virus (HPV). These unsightly growths can appear anywhere on the body, but are commonly found on the hands, feet, and genitals.

Several types of warts exist, including common, flat, filiform, mosaic, periungual, and plantar. Most warts do not hurt, but in some cases they can cause a lot of discomfort.

A wart will usually go away on its own, but it can take years. Because they are caused by a virus, they are contagious.
There are several treatments that can remove these fleshy, cauliflower-like growths. If over-the-counter treatments don’t work, a more aggressive method may be needed. Some of these include:

Salicylic acid
Cauterization
Freezing
Electrosurgery
Curettage

All of these procedures are fast. You will experience minimal discomfort, and there is no downtime. These treatments are appropriate for people of any age. Dr. Goodarzi specializes in pediatric dermatology, making her office an ideal choice for removing your child’s wart.
