The Practice holds a wart Clinic every six weeks when we have delivery of Liquid Nitrogen, which is used to treat viral warts and some other benign skin blemishes such as skin tags.
Viral warts and verrucae (which are viral warts on the soles of the feet) may respond to one or more treatments of Liquid Nitrogen, which involves applying the liquid to the wart to freeze the cells and cause the virus inside to die. The wart may blister or crust over after the treatment and it may be a bit sore. You may need to cover the treated area with a plaster.
It should be remembered that viral warts generally go away themselves if left long enough and rarely cause any symptoms. It may be best to leave them untreated unless they are very large, persistent or unsightly. Scarring after treatment with liquid nitrogen is a rare possibility. To make a first appointment at the Wart Clinic see your Doctor initially to decide whether Liquid Nitrogen treatment is advisable.
