Warts are not usually a health risk, but many people visit their dermatologist in Arlington Heights to have them treated for cosmetic reasons. Although all warts may look similar, there are actually several different types. Your dermatologist can determine what kind of wart you have so he or she can recommend the right treatment.
Common warts are the warts most people get on their hands that have a cauliflower-like appearance. Plantar warts usually develop on the foot, especially the sole of the foot. Flat warts often occur on the face, arms, and legs, and have flat tops. Genital warts look similar to common warts or flat warts, but occur in the genital region.
If you want to have your wart removed, make an appointment at Arlington Dermatology by calling 847-392-5440. A dermatologist can freeze your wart or use laser treatment to improve the appearance. Be sure to ask about our other services, including psoriasis treatment, acne treatment, and dermatitis care.
