Do I need to consult my General Practioner?

You do not generally need to see your General Practitioner when you have a wart. But if you are in doubt as to whether that spot is a wart or not, please consult your General Practitioner.

You can try to prevent yourself and others from infections with a few simple measures:

  • No nail-biting
  • Do not scratch or pick the wart
  • Do not shares towels (this also applies to kitchen towels)
  • Wear well-ventilating socks and shoes
  • Wear sandals in the gym, at the swimming pool and in public showers
  • Wash your hands and feet often, preferably with soap; dry  well after washing, especially between the fingers and toes
