Hg Sticker Remover
Cut myself using "sticker remover". Skin healed but possible got some liquid in open wound. Could this have adverse effects (mutagenic/carcinogenic)?

Very shallow foreign objects will be "grown/pushed" out of the skin layer over time. Deeper foreign objects will get "walled off" and you may feel a hard lump under your skin. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I'm dark skinned and have darker patches on my chest after wearing stickers on there for a day. Its been two weeks now. How can I clear it up?
Contact dermatitis: You may have developed a contact dermatitis. Steroid creams can help with this.

What to do if I have used corn remover pad and liquid but it didn't help. Can yo recommend anything?
See a podiatrist: The corn/callus is your skin's way of protecting itself from where there is pressure. If you don't get rid of what is causing the pressure, the corn/callus will reoccur. This can be done with accommodative padding and orthotics. There are stronger rx medication available to remove the corn/calluses. Also, corns/calluses can mimic other lesions; go see the doc. ...Read more
