10 Common Places Warts Can Appear

Warts can appear anywhere on the face and body. They’re annoyingly persistent and can very easily spread to other areas – or be passed onto other people.  

The contagious nature of warts means that they tend to appear more where the skin is exposed and/or regularly touched or rubbed.

Common Places For Warts

Some of the more common locations for warts are:

  1. Hands
  2. Fingers and thumbs
  3. Fingernails where the virus can get in after a hangnail
  4. Nose
  5. Eyes
  6. Penis
  7. Vagina
  8. Anus
  9. Groin
  10. Feet (also known as verruca or plantar warts)

Before and After Photos

After treatment, the skin is smooth and healthy. The redness after treatment will continue to fade and become less noticeable with time.

Getting Rid of Warts

There are over the counter preparations which may be effective in some cases of warts on the hands and feet. However, these are not suitable for genital warts and will not be suitable for many facial warts due to delicate skin and proximity to eyes or mouth.

Where over the counter preparations fail or are unsuitable, there are professional treatments that can be effective, carried out in complete confidence.

Wart Removal By Experienced Doctors & Surgeons

The team at London Mole Removal Centre are highly trained and experienced in dealing with warts and other difficult skin lesions. The solutions recommended will depend on the the doctor’s assessment and diagnosis of the problem. Clinics offer:

  • Cryotherapy (freezing) – Simple warts are frozen off in a procedure known as ‘cryotherapy’ which uses intense cold. Treatment may involve 2-3 sessions to ensure complete removal of the wart.
  • Laser or skin surgery – Large and very resistant warts can be treated either using more aggressive techniques

Wart removal is surprisingly simple, painless and quick and effective with our methods and techniques.
