What are Warts?
Warts also known as verruca vulgaris, are benign skin growths caused by strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV). Though not a health risk, you may wish to have the lesions removed because of social embarrassment. At Desert Sage Dermatology in Scottsdale, AZ Megan Ahmed, NP-C offers safe and effective treatment for warts.
How are they transmitted?
Warts are common and highly contagious. Warts are caused by HPV through a tiny cut or scratch in your skin. This virus will attack skin cells, causing rapid growth that becomes warts. Warts can easily spread via direct skin-to-skin contact, although indirect means are also common, such as touching a towel or clothing that also has touched a wart. They can also spread on your own body once a single lesion forms.

Desert Sage Dermatology Reviews
I had the absolute best experience with Megan. She is so knowledgeable & approached my skin concerns from all angles. I loved how educational the visit was & her approach for my specific needs. Get in for a consultation, you won’t regret it.
Megan was by far the best derm I've ever seen. She was informative- really helped me understand options for skincare and hair loss. She listened to my concerns patiently. Had some some good recommendations in various price ranges for skincare.
I've been treated by Megan for over one year now and she is fantastic. She takes the time to discuss treatment options with you, gives honest feedback about products, and is very skilled in both medical and cosmetic dermatology. I've also gotten Vivace and botox by her and she has done an excellent job. Highly recommend!
Megan is the best derm I have been to. She gets you in and out, you never wait more than 5-10 mins. She’s very knowledgeable and knows how to relate. Megan is super easy to talk to and you can get into to see her within the week. She’s wonderful. Would highly recommend. My skin was horrible and now it’s just about flawless.
Great people and quick- no waiting.
