Wart treatments are determined by a physician based on:

  • Age, overall health and medical history
  • Extent of the growths
  • Tolerance for specific medications, procedures or therapies

  • Type
  • Severity
  • Wart treatments include:
  • Application of salicylic and lactic acid (to soften the infected area)
