Post Facial Warts

Warts - NO - I am not talking about STDs. Rather, I am refering to 'Plantar Warts' which appear on the surface of the skin on the feet. Sometime it doesn't occur at the foot, rather, on the face - like I just discovered the other day.


What exactly causes a wart? I know it is an infection that seeps up the skin somehow, but I would like to get some more info for those who know about it.

And most importantly, what is the most commonly used way to treat FACIAL WARTS? Some kind of acid or freeze method by a dermatologist?

I am not new to warts. I have had 2 previous ones in my life and I just don't know what in the world it is that causes it. Previous times were on my toes. So the dermatologist used a 'freezing method' and it went away after a couple visits.

But I want to know what is the best method in terms of WARTS on the FACE.

[And to help u understand my lifestyle - i'll leave you by saying I am super anal and super clean. I am a neat freak & very organized. I wash my face 3 times a day and shower 2 times a day. So 'dirty' can sure be canceled out.]

Your derm can freeze them off. My daughter had this done and that took care of them for good.
