Warts and Cryotherapy

Warts and Cryotherapy

Warts may be in a variety of sizes and shapes. They may show up as raised and hard or flat and soft. Common warts may be single or in groups on the hands or anywhere else of your body. Generally hard brownish and elevated in a shape of a dome. Black spot may be visible on the skin in case of warts on feet. Wart goes under the skin because of the pressure from walking. Therefore a hard and thick skin forms on wart. While this wart and tough skin grows, walking becomes painful. Warts which appear on face, arms and legs are flat and they appear in groups. They are pinkish, light brown or light yellow. Shaving is the reason for these warts to spread. A type of flat wart shows up around the mouth, nose and beards. The surface of these warts are more shiny. Warts around nails and toe nails are hard and irregular bubbles. Warts usually are not painful but if they are in an area which may be itchy or may be shaved they spread quickly.

Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy treatment is the procedure of freezing warts using liquid nitrogen. The procedure takes very short time. Local anesthesia may be required because the procedure is painful. Wart treatment may be 1-4 times. Treatment intervals may be in between 1-3 weeks. After the treatment pain may be present for 3 days. Recovery will be in 7 to 14 days with a minor scar or no scar at all.
