What's the difference between a wart and a wart scar. Not sure if I have warts or scars from warts. ?

DIfficult to tell

Verruca
It can be difficult to tell the difference between an active wart and a scar from treatment. If black dots are present (which are the tips of dilated blood vessels) the wart virus is probably active.

How do i remove dark scars on penis do to burning off warts. had genital warts years ago,burned them off myself.How do i get rid of dark scars(PLEASE)!!!

Burn

Burn scars usually last a lifetime. The good news is that they lighten over time. There is a cream called mederma that you can buy over the counter that may help lighten the scar. Read the instructions prior to buying to make sure this gel can be used on the genitals. Lastly please do not perform any more home medical procedures on yourself, this can be dangerous, and leave long lasting scars. There are other treatments for genital warts that would have resulted in no scars. Good luck.
