There are two common types of warts:
1) Viral Warts:
These are small skin growths caused by a virus infecting the skin. A viral wart on the foot is called ‘verruca’. Over an extended period of months and years, viral warts will disappear on their own. We understand the need for immediate attention and therefore remove them through laser treatments, cauterising or freezing them. Please do note that after its removal, the warts may come back again. and it is often best to wait for them to disappear on their own.
2) Seborrheic Warts:
These kinds of warts are extremely common. They are brown, crusty growths which build on the back of older skin. Some people are more susceptible to contracting these warts than others. They can irritate and sometimes catch on clothing. They are simple to remove with cautery.
If one finds them as a cause of irritation, they may be removed with cautery.
