Warts are growths on the skin caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). They are very common, particularly in school-age children. Warts can spread by direct contact to other parts of the body, or to other people. They are painless unless they appear on the soles of your feet.

After examining your skin, our dermatologists will suggest the treatment best suited for your case. These treatments may include occlusion (covering the affected area with a bandage or strip of tape), over-the-counter medications, cryotherapy (freezing), electrosurgery or prescription medications.
