A 24-year-old male asked:

I have small warts on my hands and they seem to be spreading. they occasionally go red and are raised and itch. is this a cause for concern and should i have them frozen off like the larger warts i've had removed?

Probably not warts: Multiple warts on the hands are rare, and warts do not become red or inflamed and not likely to itch. This probably is something else. See a doctor; if your PCP isn't certain, see a dermatologist.
