Most patients find they seek medical attention after suffering in silence with warts for months and even years. The commonest reason people delay seeking expert advice is because they are told:
- They will just go in time – sadly not the case
- Chemist treatments are the only options – incorrect
- NHS does not treat warts – unfortunately correct
What is the best wart treatment?
The best treatments for warts depend on the wart and its position on the body.
- Topical creams – takes months, only useful for small thin warts
- Freezing – more effective than creams but takes multiple treatments.
- Laser surgery – the most effective, removes wart in single session in most cases.

For plantar warts (verruca), acid creams from the chemist are a first step.
If this does not work then our doctors can offer to freeze or laser them off.
These more commonly occur in men around the chin and mouth area as the warts flare up due to shaving.
The best treatment is laser surgery.
Finger/Hand Warts Removal
For finger and hand warts which are common in adults as well as children, treatments include acid remedies from the chemist alongside paring down and covering in duct tape.
A quicker option is freezing and/or laser surgery.
At home wart removal is a daily regime that needs to be done for 4-6 weeks:
- Pare down the wart daily with emery board or sandpaper until all the dead skin has been removed
- Apply OCCULSAL cream ( can get from chemist) as this is the strongest
- Apply DUCT tape or a plaster over the area this helps to keep the wart moist so the cream can penetrate
If this is ineffective, then cryotherapy (freezing) or laser surgery may offer a faster alternative.
Many of our patients have already tried home removal techniques before finding our services.

I cannot believe the difference in my laser hair removal treatment under my chin caused by PCOS. I’m only on my fourth treatment out of six and I feel so much better, it’s as if there is no hair at all. My confidence is coming back! Thank you so much to Lydia for contributing so much to this! The reception team have always been lovely and accommodating. Thanks Cosmedics Skin Clinics UK.

Had a shave excision done with Dr Vardy twice so far - both were effortless and I’m so pleased with the result. She takes the time to explain everything and made me feel at ease. Won’t see anyone else for this procedure in the future!
