You Are Dealing With Warts
While these hard skin-colored growths aren’t harmful, they can be a nuisance or even painful if they develop on more delicate areas of the body, such as the palms of your hands or soles of your feet. Our dermatologist offers a variety of treatment options to remove the wart faster.
You Notice a Suspicious Mole
