Warts are a common viral infection of the skin caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). There are over 100 types of HPV and more individuals will develop some type of wart during their lifetime. Spread of the virus occurs through direct skin contact with the wart virus. The most common areas to develop a wart are the hands and feet, though they can occur on any skin or mucosal surface.
At the Central Wyoming Skin Clinic we offer a number of treatments options for warts of all types including treatment with liquid nitrogen, cantherone (a.k.a “beetle juice”), injections of candida antigen, and various topical prescription medication such as Aldara.
