Warts often regrows after the skin has healed.Treatments that may be prescribed by a medical professional include Keratolysis, removal of dead surface skin cells usually using salicylic acid.
-Cryosurgery, which involves freezing the wart (generally with liquid nitrogen), creating a blister between the wart and epidermal layer, after which the wart and surrounding dead skin falls off by itself.
-Surgical curettage of the wart.
-Laser treatment. But all these three would require you to see a dermatologist.
You can try Imiquimod, a topical cream that helps the body's immune system fight the wart virus by encouraging interferon production.
Another over-the-counter product that can aid in wart removal is silver nitrate in the form of a caustic pencil, which is also available at drug stores. This method generally takes three to six daily treatments to be effective. The instructions must be followed to minimize staining of skin and clothing.
But what should I do with the remaining piece of the wart? It's getting hard but I don't know if it's just gonna stay like that or if it's gonna fall off. Should I keep applying the salicylic acid?
