How can I remove warts on nose?Skin, Hair & Nails
I have a wart on my nose, and it has grown in the last 3 – 4 years. There are also some wart in my underarm and on neck.
There are many possible causes of a growth on the nose and it is best to get it assessed. A skin biopsy may be necessary to confirm the diagnosis. If it is a viral wart on the nose, this can be removed by electrocautery or liquid nitrogen treatment.
For the warty growths on the neck and armpits, they may be skin tags. This can be removed by electrosurgery if it bothers you.
Thank you for your question! Skin growths should be carefully assessed before removal. If they have been growing quickly, it may be useful to biopsy them for further investigation.
If not, electrocautery or CO2 laser ablation can remove them, usually in a single session.
Hope this helps.
