No need to repeat experiments already done, showing what works and what does not. See a skin expert specialist. ...Read more

The larger brown spots can be caused by bruising (if its soft underneath), or insects, fungus, lack of calcium in the soil, or poor storage. Scrubbing the skin or peeling the skin before you eat it is a simple solution, but if you do happen to eat it there's no harm. ...Read more

There are a variety of topical treatments available for visible warts. Though there is no specific cure for HPV infection, most infections resolve on their own within 2 years via your own immune system. ...Read more
