Getting Rid of Pesky Warts

In general, the treatment for a wart depends on the type of wart a person has.[sws_pullquote_right]“It’s a good idea to have a doctor look at a wart before trying to treat it, especially if it is on the bottom of your foot.”[/sws_pullquote_right]Corns, calluses, and plantar warts all can form areas of thick, hard skin on feet, and it isn’t always easy to tell them apart.

For some kinds of warts, the doctor may even suggest that you don’t need medicines to make them go away. In time, these warts will disappear on their own.

Warts can be hard to get rid of because the thick layers of skin make it hard for medicine to reach the virus that causes them. There are many ways to treat warts, but treatments can sometimes be tricky. After a wart seems to be removed, it might come right back.

Which Chemical Peel is Best for Warts?

The Salicylic 20% solution is a very effective treatment for removing warts. You will want to apply the salicylic acid to the area of the wart after showering or bathing while the skin is still damp. This will increase the depth of penetration and be more effective at removing the wart. Over time, the wart crumbles away from the healthy skin.
