Need to see a: healthcare provider to properly examine and diagnose your condition. It is not normal and needs prompt attention. It sounds like either an infectious or allergic condition, but if it has been there for 2 months it is not likely going away on its own. Do not delay. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.

Repeating same questions with different words. Probably not warts. See a doctor, ideally a dermatologist. Stop asking: thanks.
