Warts are caused by a virus in the top layer of the skin. These non-cancerous growths are usually skin-colored, but can be another color. Warts in children can go away on their own over time, and are not dangerous, but treatments do exist for them.
It is important that warts are identified correctly before undergoing any sort of treatment for them. If a wart treatment is applied to a more serious type of skin problem, the results can be undesirable.
Patients from Franklin Square, Valley Stream, West Hempstead, Malverne, Lynbrook, Elmont, and Garden City come to Kushner Dermatology for help with warts. If you or your children have warts, Call (516) 328-6252 to have them examined and to discuss treatment options.
