Can any other doctor besides a dermatologist burn off a wart?

Just asking. The wait time to get into the only dermatologist around here is months. Need sooner treatment!

Yeah, I know. But its a long wart story, it isn't treatable by OTC stuff. I will call my PCP tomorrow.

Our ped would have removed one if the over the counter treatment didn't work.

Our family doc removed mine when I was in middle school. She dropped the cup and it splashed and disappeared almost instantly. And it burnt holes in her nylons. It was pretty fascinating to me.

A lot of GPs will do it.

God bless!
