Warts are non-cancerous skin growths caused by a viral infection (HPV) which makes them difficult to treat. Approximately 2 out of 3 skin warts will resolve on their own within 2 years in children. However, the sooner a wart is treated, the easier it is to manage.
Treatment depends upon:
Type of wart
Number of warts within an area
How long the patient has had the wart
Location of the wart
Warts are very common in individuals of all ages. Alberta Health Care only covers warts if they occur on the feet or genitals. As such, we provide treatment options for those people wishing to eliminate warts on other parts of their body.
