Warts are small but can be annoying, and there is no need to suffer due to them. Warts are caused by the human papillomavirus, of which more than a hundred varieties are known. Wart treatment is based on either removing or reducing the wart, and activating the body’s immune response to the wart virus.
However, it may take a long time for a wart to heal. Children recover more quickly, and 70% of warts heal on their own within two years. For adults, the process may be slow, lasting up to 5–10 years.
Freezing a wart may often be performed by a nurse
The Skin Hospital treats warts with an effective liquid nitrogen treatment, or cryotherapy. The procedure may be performed by a dermatologist or nurse. We have nurses specialising in skin diseases, who can freeze your warts. Freezing is an effective and inexpensive way to deal with annoying warts. A doctor’s referral is not needed for wart freezing performed by a nurse. The total price is EUR 110.65, and more than one wart can be frozen during a single appointment.
Wart freezing by a nurse is only recommended for the removal of warts that are not located on the face, mucous membranes, the genital area or close to a nail. Genital warts must be dealt with by a dermatologist. Likewise, if you have any warts on the face, mucous membranes or close to a nail, or warts that are otherwise unclear, you should make an appointment with a dermatologist.
