Warts are caused by human papillomavirus (HPV). If you have a wart it can cause you pain, discomfort and it can be unsightly. Warts can be treated in a variety of different ways. Each method depends on the type and location of your wart. A typical solution for your wart solution may include the use of salicylic acid, which can be used at home for your treatment.

Salicylic acid works because it slowly and painlessly will absorb into your skin. This causes your skin cells that contain the wart to peel. It speeds the destruction of the your wart. Salicylic acid is a colorless crystalline organic acid that is used in organic synthesis and it functions as a plant hormone. It can also be used to treat psoriasis, dandruff, acne, ringworm and ichthyosis.

To use Salicylic acid for wart treatment you will need to file down the area to remove the dead skin. You can do this by using a file or pumice stone. Stop filing when or if you feel any pain or discomfort. You may want to soak the area with warm water before filing to soften it. Apply the salicylic acid solution or pad to the wart. Cover the area with a Band-Aid or duct tape. Repeat this process each night before bed.

It is important to always use salicylic acid and other wart removal methods under the direction of our experts at Medical Dermatology Specialists. You can be confident that Dr. Weisman will give you the most advanced, patient-centered skin care in the Atlanta area.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
