“After treatment, the skin will blister for a few days then go red. Wounds generally healed in under a week.”
Another effective treatment option is cryotherapy, which Dr Perry describes as “the destruction of skin tissue”.
Liquid nitrogen is used to freeze the skin cells until they die, placed on the wart with precision for up to 10 seconds followed by a two-minute break.
“The duration and number of treatment cycles depend on the skin type and the nature of the problem,” added Dr Perry.
