Michelle Draper, ARNP in dermatology at The Everett Clinic discusses warts. Warts can be a very common and very frustrating problem. Warts are a viral bump which are not dangerous, but are very contagious. Medical treatment of warts may include freezing, chemicals, topic creams as well as surgical removal. If you have tried home remedies for wart removals and they are not effective, it is important to see medical treatment to ensure you actually have a wart (and not another issue that resembles a wart) as well as to get more effective medical treatment for removal.
