How To Identify A Wart

Although they are not life-threatening, the development of warts can be an aesthetic issue. The longer they are left to linger, the harder they are to be removed. Our team at Great Neck Family Foot Care wants our patients to be able to identify the development of warts from the onslaught. For information on what you should be looking for, continue reading.

Conditions That Cause Warts

Before we dive into how to identify a wart, you must be aware of what can cause them. By avoiding scenarios where warts can thrive, you’ll be taking a big step in preventing them from affecting you in any way. These scenarios include:

  • Coming into contact with warts.
  • Biting your fingernails, which can cause cracks in the skin where warts can form.
  • Using foot care products that have come in contact with warts.

Identifying A Wart

There are many different types of warts a person can suffer from. They are mostly very contagious, meaning if you develop one and begin to pick at it, warts can spread to other parts of your body. That is why getting prompt treatment is so important. Symptoms that point to the development of warts include:

  • Fleshy, grainy bumps.
  • Bumps that are rough to the touch.
  • Growths that have black pinpoint dots on the top.

When To See Our Podiatrist  

If you have begun to develop warts, there are at-home methods of treatment that you can try to resolve the issue. However, sometimes professional intervention is needed to fully correct the problem. When any of the below takes place, consider reaching out to our team:

  • Warts become painful and begin to change color.
  • At-home remedies have not been successful.
  • You notice warts have begun to spread.
  • Warts begin to interfere with your ability to perform everyday activities.

Emblation Immunotherapy for Wart Removal

Looking down at your feet and finding that warts have developed is something that will undoubtedly come as an unpleasant surprise. Although they are not life-threatening by any means, plantar warts can be an aesthetic issue, and if left unchecked, can also cause pain and discomfort when walking. Fortunately, here at Great Neck Family Foot Care, we have the technology that will help. Through the use of our newly acquired Swift Technology, you’ll find that Dr. Hochstein, our expert podiatrist, can safely eliminate pesky warts.

What Is Swift?

If you’ve never heard of the Swift therapy for wart removal, you’re likely wondering precisely what it is. Swift is an FDA approved technology that has proven to be highly effective in treating plantar warts. As a cutting edge form of technology, it works by channeling low doses of microwave energy through a probe to stimulate an immune response from the body, which targets the HPV virus that causes warts.

How Long Will Treatment Last

Even with this advanced Swift Technology, we don’t want patients to set unrealistic expectations. It is going to take more than one session to treat your plantar warts properly. For this to be most effective, sessions with Swift will need to be aligned with your body’s natural immune periods. This means that you’ll likely need to receive 3 to 4 sessions, each spaced four weeks apart. In terms of the length of each session, expect them to last between 5 to 10 minutes. Additionally, this treatment is beneficial due to the below factors:

  • Limited debridement.
  • No breaking of the skin.
  • No bandages are needed.
  • There is no at-home treatment that needs to be administered between sessions.

When To Seek Swift Treatment?  

Like any other medical condition, it’s essential to understand when to seek treatment for plantar warts precisely. Some people will have them develop but feel no urge to receive care. Others will not be so lucky. If you find yourself dealing with any of the below, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with us:

  • It feels like there are always pebbles in your shoes as you walk.
  • Pain is experienced when the wart is compressed.
  • A yellowed crust develops around warts.
  • Warts are developing into painful lesions.
  • Low sensation in the feet has developed due to warts.
