I treated four common warts on my inner thigh by freezing them and another one pops up... Why did this happen?

Warts are tricky: Often patients need multiple treatments to get rid of warts completely. They are 'known' for hiding out in the skin layers (away from the destructive power of the immune system) and therefore can pop-up at will if you don't stay on top of it.

Good luck! ...Read more
