Warts are one of the most common skin conditions caused by a viral infection particularly by one of the many types of human papillomavirus (HPV). These growths on the skin which can turn up anywhere on the body are usually harmless but can be very unsightly and embarrassing. Some warts may appear on the face, around the fingernails or toenails, genital areas, and usually on the hands and soles of the feet.
While there are various types of treatment available including but not limited to laser, cryotherapy, electrocautery, and immunotherapy, many people still prefer topical treatments which are supposedly a lot cheaper, safer, and pain-free. If you’re looking for home treatment options, this article outlines the best wart removers in the market today including the upsides and downsides collected from various real user reviews on the web.
Rank #5 Dr. Scholl’s Clear Away One-Step Salicylic Acid Wart Remover Strips
