Warts

Warts - Overview

Warts are tumours or growths of the skin caused by infection with Human Papillomavirus (HPV). More than 70 HPV subtypes are known. Warts are particularly common in childhood and are spread by direct contact or autoinocculation. This means if a wart is scratched, the viral particles may be spread to another area of skin. It may take as long as twelve months for the wart to first appear.

All about Warts

Although now we know that warts are caused by a virus and are therefore contagious, there is still much to learn about the nature of the condition. Why is it, for example, that some people tend to contract warts more readily than others? And why do some warts disappear overnight for no apparent reason? Whatever the answer to these questions, it is clear than many people suffer pain and embarrassment because of their warts. Modern treatment can, when properly applied, go a long way towards alleviating the problem.

Cryosurgery (The freezing treatment) - what to expect

CRYOSURGERY CLINIC

1. Liquid Nitrogen Cryosurgery is an extremely effective treatment for the destruction of unwanted tissues like verrucae, warts, certain types of skin cancers and other skin growths, with minimal scar formation. Occasionally, there may be residual discoloration in the treated area. This is usually temporary, but it can take several months for the normal skin colour to return.

2. Liquid Nitrogen is extremely cold (-1960 centigrade). Its application causes rapid freezing to produce an instant and intense frostbite, the extent of which can be accurately controlled. For larger lesions your doctor may use a topical or local anaesthetic (like a dental anaesthetic) to numb the area before treatment.
