Finding a Dermatologist for Wart Removal: Discover Expert Care at Eternal Dermatology and Aesthetic Center

Warts can be both embarrassing and painful. Fortunately, our dermatologist at Eternal Dermatology and Aesthetic Center in Fulton, Maryland, is a wart specialist and helps patients with their skin care needs. If you are looking for the best dermatologist to diagnose warts and genital warts or seek future removal, Dr. Ife Rodney and her team can assist! Let’s look at the different types of warts and what can be done about them!

What are warts?

These small growths may occur anywhere on the skin but are often seen on the hands, feet, and face. While they are not cancerous, warts can be painful, especially if located on the bottom of your foot. They may also be particularly embarrassing and can spread if not properly treated. For some patients, genital warts might be a concern. These are warts that develop in and around the genital area and are a sexually transmitted disease. We understand that genital warts may be embarrassing, but we are here to provide confidential, trusted care to help you overcome them and avoid spreading them to sexual partners.

Who gets them?

Warts are commonly seen in all age groups and all skin types, but children and people with weakened immune systems are at higher risk. Although they sometimes disappear on their own, this natural process could take months or even years.

What causes warts?

Warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). There are over 100 different strains of this contagious virus. This means that it’s possible to get it by touching someone else. This risk is increased if the skin is broken or inflamed from a rash like eczema.

How does a dermatologist treat warts?

While it is possible for your body to naturally clear warts, it is best to seek treatment as you can spread them to your loved ones. During the consultation, Dr. Rodney will examine your wart to diagnose it. It is possible that some types of skin cancer can look like warts. In these cases, a biopsy may be needed to determine whether it is a wart.

Many over-the-counter wart remedies are available, but these usually give subpar results. Medical grade treatments, including freezing, shaving, or application of topical medications, are available at our practice.
