I have a black wart on my toe now what?

I have a black wart on my toe now what?

Lots of ways: Get it treated! You can use the liquid nitrogen, liquid nitrous oxide (this is what I like to use), topical acids, dermal scraping. You can also try oral cimetadine (400 mg three times a day for 12-16 weeks). This is very safe and had the side effect of getting rid of warts for many people of adult size and weight (japma november 1, 1995, vol. 85 no. 11 717-718). ...Read more

Should I freeze a wart on my toe that is turning black inside if I've already done it once?

Should I freeze a wart on my toe that is turning black inside if I've already done it once?

May not be a wart: If this is a subsequent result of originally freezing a suspicious lesion, it may be the effect of the initial cryotherapy and it may be the scab formed. However, not all lesions on the foot are warts, and the ones that change in color are suspicious and should be biopsied. Go to a podiatrist to have it examined. ...Read more

2 warts on the bottom+side of big toe. I have been going at it with a scalpel trying to get the roots out but they keep getting bigger. They hurt?

Do not scrape...: In your attempt to get to the root of the problem by scraping the virus away, you are actually spreading the virus. Warts thrive on the foot, in part, because of the increased moisture. You must dry or dehydrate the surrounding skin before debridement can work. There are various solutions that will do the job. Consult with a foot specialist for the various options. ...Read more

Can a plantars wart in the bottom of my footget on the nerve of a toe and make it excruciating to walk?

Several treatments.: You can try over the counter wart removers, but be careful: I've seen them do more harm than good. Other options your doctor might offer include cryotherapy (freezing the wart), electrocautery (burning the wart), laser treatment, or several topical chemical treatments. If the treatment is typically uncomfortable, your doctor can numb the area before proceeding. ...Read more

How do you get rid of a wart using duck tape? I have one on my toe and starting to really hurt and bother me.

How do you get rid of a wart using duck tape? I have one on my toe and starting to really hurt and bother me.

Occlusive therapy: Duct tape or the sticky part of a band aid (not the white part) can be used to 'smother' the wart and thereby get the immune system to recognize there is a problem there...an infection! Warts get away with their dirty work because the immune system 'doesn't know' there's a problem. The tape therapy makes the body wake up and go kill the viruses. Usually it has to be done for a week or more. ...Read more

There is wart splitting that is hurting. What do I need to? The wart is under her toe in the crease. She is five years old, and it is bleeding.

There is wart splitting that is hurting. What do I need to? The wart is under her toe in the crease. She is five years old, and it is bleeding.

Given : Given her age, I would not even attempt to deal with this on your own. Bring her to a podiatrist or dermatologist.

Don't be alarmed about the bleeding. Warts are very vascular, and they build a network of blood vessels around themselves, and bleeding is common. No one ever bleed to death from a wart. Keep it clean & dry, cover it with a band aid or some sort of dry, sterile dressing, reassure her it's not anything she did, not a cleanliness issue, and she will be ok. And set up an appointment as soon as you can. ...Read more

I've had this "corn" or "wart" by my little toe for almost a year now. I never had it before. It's a little bump, but it hurts. What is it?

I've had this "corn" or "wart" by my little toe for almost a year now. I never had it before. It's a little bump, but it hurts. What is it?

You Choose.: One can never be sure without actually seeing the toe, but my money is on "corn". Your age is not right for a wart, and in a year's time it would have grown large. The corn is the result of skin being trapped between the shoe and the underlying bone. Time and pressure cause the skin to thicken for protection. All the various treatments boil down to changing shoes or changing the bone's structure. ...Read more
