Cryotherapy involves the application of liquid nitrogen to the wart in order to freeze it. This causes a blister to form around and under the wart thus allowing dead tissue to slough off in a week or so. This type of treatment is quite painful and it is not recommended in treating children. Cryotherapy side effects include blistering, pain, and skin discoloration around the treated area.
The pulsed-dye laser treatment is used to burn or cauterizes tiny blood vessels which in turn causes the infected tissues to die and the wart eventually falls off. It is a painful process that causes scarring.
The bothersome tissue can easily be removed through minor surgery. This may leave a scar around the treated area.
This is a prescription medication and it works through removing layers of wart bit by bit. It is more effective when it is combined with freezing.
