Understanding warts and treatment options in Brooklyn, NY

Khrom Dermatology is proud to provide quality care for a variety of cosmetic and medical skin concerns, including diagnosis and treatment of warts. Although these common skin growths do not pose a serious health risk, they are contagious and can sometimes occur in large numbers causing pain, discomfort, or cosmetic concerns.

What are warts?

A wart is a noncancerous skin growth, caused by an HPV (human papillomavirus) infection. The virus is contagious and can be spread through contact. In addition to spreading between people, an individual can transfer it from one area of the body to another. This is especially common with children who often get warts on their hands and may spread the virus to facial areas.

Generally, warts are rough or grainy in texture, and they may develop in clusters. The type and exact characteristics of a wart depends on where on the body it is located.

  • Common warts usually appear on the fingers or toes. If growing adjacent to the nailbed, they can cause abnormal growth of nails
  • Flat warts, or plane warts, are smoother in appearance and tend to develop on the face
  • Plantar warts are found on the soles of feet, and they grow inward due to the external pressure of walking
  • Filiform warts are thin and threadlike, often developing on the face
  • Mucosal warts, also called oral warts, are found on and around the lips, or soft tissue on the inside of the mouth

Treatment options

Most often, warts will eventually go away without treatment. However, it may take several years for this to happen, especially in adults. Additionally, people with weakened immune systems may experience massive outbreaks of warts. For these and other reasons, waiting for warts to go away is not a practical option for many individuals.

If you have a large number of warts, or they are causing discomfort or cosmetic concerns, they can easily be removed. Depending on the location of the wart, we may use surgical excision, laser treatment, chemical peeling, or other techniques. Any of these procedures can be completed right here in our office, with minimal discomfort. Call us at 718-751-0674 to schedule a consultation.

Real Patients. Real Results.

Google Review by Greg Rock Studio
Came to Khrom Dermatology on Tuesday, March 13/2018. I have been examined by Dr. Natallia Fiadorchanka upon arrival and she determined that I do not have any major problems with my body skin. I have been advised to get to the first floor of the company and to schedule an appointment for the facial examination and procedures (if needed). To my big surprise I have been accepted immediately (without any further appointment dates) and examined by Ms. Irina. She advised that I have to do the laser procedure to remove the spider veins, appeared close on the facial skin. Ms. Irina appeared to be very professional, polite, detail oriented dermatologist and explain why and how the laser works and what is happening to the skin after the procedure. She also politely explained what to do after the procedure. I did not feel any pain or discomfort not after the procedure, nor on the next day... I have been very surprised ;-) to receive the phone call on the next day and Ms. Irina inquired in regards to my feelings and health condition and was very polite and concerned. I have nothing else to add except very big THANKS! to Ms. Khrom and her entire staff! Greatly appreciate Dr. Natallia Fiadorchanka detail information received and Ms. Irina's highly professional information, great work and concern. Thanks to you all, dear, Ladies!!! You are giving smiles back to the people. All you do greatly appreciated. Kindest regards. GB
