Warts are small skin growths that show up on different areas on the body. When it comes to treatment there are clinical and natural methods. In this article we’ll be going over some of the most common clinical methods for removing warts and see if it’s a good option for you.
Dermatologists are the ones that normally perform clinical procedures to remove warts. Some of the most common treatment procedures dermatologists recommend for this condition includes cryotherapy, cauterization, or excision. Sometimes they’ll also recommend laser therapy too.
The clinical procedure of removing warts by burning them off the skin is known as cauterization. This procedure is utilized in combination with an electric current. Even though this clinical treatment is normally effective, the success of the procedure will depend mainly on the dermatologist’s skills.
Excision is treament procedure that involves using scissors to cut off the warts potruding from the skin. The doctor will first give the affected individual local anesthesia to numb the area before using the scissors to remove the warts. Sometimes this procedure will cause some bleeding as the warts get cut off. This procedure will sometimes cause scars to develop on the affected. Also, there is no guarantee that the warts won’t come back once they get removed, because this procedure only removes the warts and not kill the wart causing virus.
Cryotherapy is another clinical method to remove warts. When the doctor utilizes this removal method he or she will freeze off the warts using liquid nitrogen. Once the warts are frozen over they are much easier for the dermatologist to remove. This method can cause skin burns and can sometimes lead to scarring too.
These are some of the most commonly used clinical treatments for getting rid of warts. It’s important that you consult your insurance company to make sure you will be covered when you choose to use one or more of these clinical methods. If your insurance doesn’t cover these type of treatment procedures it might be wise to look for an alternative because these removal procedures are expensive.
If you can’t afford these clinical treatments you can turn to natural wart removal methods for help. One of the best natural ways to treat this condition is to use tea tree oil. This is an essential that comes from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia tree. It contains powerful antiseptic properties and terpenoids, which is a powerful antifungal and antiviral component. Tea tree oil will get the the root cause of the problem and kill off the wart causing virus. Before you apply the tea tree oil you should dilute it with some water until it’s fifty percent tea tree oil and fifty percent water. Soak a cotton pad in the mixture and then apply it directly to the affected area overnight.
If you’ve got warts on your feet you could add some drops of tea tree oil in a tub of warm water and soak your feet in it.
