Warts are caused by a viral infection (human papilloma virus) in the epidermis or outer layer of the skin. Warts are mostly transmitted by direct skin-to-skin contact and are common on the knees, hands, face, and feet.  Although easy to recognize and diagnose, they can be very hard to treat, especially on the hands and feet, where the epidermis is thickest. The key to successfully treating warts is to cause enough skin irritation to stimulate the patient's immune system to recognize and fight the wart virus.  From liquid nitrogen freezing and lasers, to various topical and injectable medicines or surgical removal, many treatments are available to treat warts. Since each case is unique, it is important to use the correct combination of office procedures and home treatments to manage each wart.  Multiple treatments at 3 week intervals are often needed.  Unfortunately, treated warts can recur and new warts can develop in regions of the body that have been infected in the past.
