The doctor very lightly applied nitrogen and had me go through an inconvenient and lengthy routine of using over-the-counter salicylic acid remedies and bandages to remove my warts. Then, he kept having me come back in for check ups at $35/visit. After $105 in copays, not one wart was removed, and one actually got much bigger. I've never had to go through such hassle before. In the past, the dermatologists have zapped it really good with nitrogen, it forms a big blister, and the wart falls off. What was the point of coming to him for this if he was just going to have me use over-the-counter remedies? I ended up having to go to my primary care physician. He zapped those warts good, blisters formed, and in one visit they were gone. Just like experiences I've had in the past. I've been to this doctor regarding my rosacea in the past and returned to him for the wart removal because he seemed to have a very good bedside manner. However, he seemed at times a bit short during this series of visits. I'm not sure what changed.
Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
