My visit with this office was amazing. They were very competent, very nice and very knowledgeable. I will definitely be back...
Warts are benign (not cancerous) skin growths that appear when a virus infects the top layer of the skin. Warts can grow on any part of your body and are often skin-colored and feel rough, but they can be dark (brown or gray-black), flat, and smooth. Most warts are raised with a rough surface.
Wart Treatments or to prevent warts from spreading, our Dermatologists recommend the following:
Warts can go away without treatment. This is especially true when children get warts. Although most warts are harmless, dermatologists treat them because they can be symptomatic, embarrassing, or spread. Sometimes we biopsy a wart to make sure it is a wart and not a skin cancer like squamous cell carcinoma.
Call for a consultation if you cannot get rid of your warts with over the counter medications, the warts hurt, you have many warts, or the “wart” is rapidly growing (this may not be a wart). At Dermatology San Antonio we have many wart treatments, most of which can be administered during your office visit.
