Whats the best way to get rid of warts on hands? Should I be concernd about them spreadin elsewhere?

Doctor freezes them: Warts on the hands, or on most other parts of the body, can be frozen off by a primary care doctor or a dermatologist. Usually, it takes 3 visits or so. After each freezing part of the wart dies, until finally all the remaining warty skin is gone.

What can I use to get rid of these warts on hands and feet?

What can I use to get rid of these warts on hands and feet?

Wart Treatment: Warts on the feet take longer to treat because the skin is thicker. Prescription salicylic acid products can work, but take several weeks of daily application. My office uses a Pulsed Dye Laser and I have found this to be quite effective and does not create a wound and allows immediate return to all activities. It does require multiple treatments. For very stubborn warts, I use a CO2 Laser. ...Read more

What happens if I have a hand wart can I give it to my partner if we have sex?

What happens if I have a hand wart can I give it to my partner if we have sex?

Probably not: Of the 100+ HPV types, most tend to establish infections only in certain body areas. HPV 1, the main cause of hand warts, rarely infects the genital area. So probably there is no risk. Having said that, maybe you shouldn't push your luck. Until the wart has cleared up, it may be best to not use that hand for sexual stimulation of your partner. ...Read more

I treated my hand wart with oregano oil. It turned black now what do I do .Keep it covered? Is it contagious?

Just watch it: The next time you need a wart removed, get with something scientific rather than a "pop" remedy that looks like an internet prank. Any irritant can stir up a wart so that the immune system removes it. If it gets red / hot / infected, get with a scientific physician. Leave it open and see what happens. All warts are somewhat contagious. Best wishes. ...Read more

No need for fear: Well, I understand your concern and obviously don't know how badly your hands are affected by these "warts" but obviously not wanting to use your hands to eat or touch ANYTHING is a little extreme. Have you seen your doctor about treatments? There are a number of options including surgical removal if these things are that pervasive and annoying. ...Read more
