Warts Removal Recovery time

More of these.. They make my skin crawl. - Imgur

Visible genital warts on the penis or vagina or around the anus are removed by excision, which means cutting the warts off with a surgical knife (scalpel). Warts on the cervix may be removed by laser or loop electrosurgical excision (LEEP).

The procedure is usually done in a doctor's office or clinic or an outpatient surgery center. You receive medicine that numbs the area around the warts (local anesthetic). Stitches (sutures) usually close the incisions.

For women, abnormal cervical cell changes caused by HPV will be treated differently than genital warts caused by HPV. Your doctor may recommend certain types of surgery, such as surgical excision. For more information about surgical methods to treat abnormal cell changes, see the topic Abnormal Pap Test.

What To Expect After Surgery

Recovery time depends on the location and number of warts removed.

  • Most people will be able to return to normal activities within 1 to 3 days.
  • Healing takes 2 to 4 weeks.
  • Scarring may occur.

For men and women who have had genital warts removed, call your doctor for any of the following:

  • Bleeding that lasts longer than 1 week
  • A fever
  • Severe pain
  • Bad-smelling or yellowish discharge, which may indicate an infection

Avoid sexual intercourse until the treated area heals and soreness is gone (usually 1 to 3 weeks, depending on the size of the area treated).

Why It Is Done

Surgery is used to remove warts that return after other treatments. It also may be used when warts are widespread. A single treatment may be all that is needed.

How Well It Works

Surgery may be an effective treatment. But surgery may cause more pain than other treatments.1


Risks of surgery are:

  • Bleeding.
  • Infection. You may receive antibiotics at the time of the procedure, to reduce the risk of infection.
  • Pain. You may need medicine for several days after the procedure.

I have a wart on my face and am CONSIDERING

Using one of the over the counter, freeze off, things to get it off. I can't go see a doc as I don't have insurance. I'm concerned b/c all the wart removers say "not for use on the face" but can I really not use it on my face? Has anyone ever tried this successfully? It's just a little wart but it's all I can look at when I look in the mirror and I want it gone

Don't mess around with warts

If you have insurance, see a dermatologist. if the wart is somewhere other than on the face or another "tender" area, they will probably use a nitrogen sprayer to freeze a pinpoint area in the center of the wart. over the next couple weeks it will die away and leave no trace.
if the wart is somewhere on the face they use an electric needle to do the same thing. either way it generally takes one treatment, plus a follow-up to make sure its gone to get rid of a wart.
those over-the-counter chemical wart removers are nasty, and usually not so effective. the dermatologist that i was treated by explained to me that the wart is twice as deep under the skin as it is wide on the surface
