Can a Seed Wart be Pulled Out?

Should you have your Seed Wart Pulled out?

No. A seed wart is actually dried broken blood vessels giving the appearance that you have seeds in your wart. There is nothing to pull out and picking at it will likely cause major irritation. You should never pick at or pull on any wart. Over the counter remedies are available or faster removal options are available with your doctor.

Anything which involves fast removal should be done by a doctor. Freezing and laser are two options.

Since they are not in fact seeds, definitely don’t try to remove them by pulling, scratching, or picking. You will just be further aggravating the wart.
