Plantar Wart Removal at the Dermatologist in Parker CO

Plantar warts become a particularly major problem during the summer months and can spread quite quickly. This is because these warts are caused by the human papilomavirus, which thrives in warm environments. You will commonly see these warts on people who frequent swimming pools or locker rooms because these environments are habitable for the virus. Luckily, making a few visits to a dermatologist in Parker CO can eliminate this problem very quickly.

Home Remedy
Before visiting the doctor, you might try to remove the wart yourself. Whatever you do, don’t try to cut it off because this could lead to scarring and infection, not to mention the fact that it’s unlikely to work. You could try using some over-the-counter liquids or gels that are available at a local drug store. This could take a few months to work, however, so it really depends on where the wart is located and if it hurts.

Doctor’s Office
Should you want to get rid of the wart immediately, make an appointment with a dermatologist in Parker CO. The doctor will start by using liquid nitrogen to freeze the wart from your body. This usually kills the wart after a few applications. If the wart is particularly deep, a minor surgery might become necessary. The doctor will use a local anesthetic and perform the procedure right in the office.

Which Doctor?
If you must have a plantar wart removed, make sure that your doctor has a number if different treatment options available. The team at Aspen Creek Family Medicine handles all kinds of dermatology-related issues and can remove your wart right in the office. Call (303) 840-3800 to make an appointment with a dermatologist today.
