Molluscum has returned, had them scraped 4 months ago. This area is new. Her skin under the bumps is cracked and red. Can I still use wart remover?

Molluscum has returned, had them scraped 4 months ago. This area is new. Her skin under the bumps is cracked and red. Can I still use wart remover?

Pox virus: Molluscum is not from the same virus as genital warts (hpv). Molluscum is a pox virus infection. If the skin surrounding is red and cracked, I would not use wart remover. See your gyn as the underlying skin might have a skin infection. ...Read more

Can I cut off or use wart remover to remove scar tissue from a healed cut at the base of my penis I nicked myself a few times while shaving my genital area. After the small cuts healed, scar tissue grew and they look like skin tags?

This: This could be razor bumps (pseudofolliculitis), skin tags, warts, molluscum, a scar, or several other possibilities. I think you should probably see a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis and to discuss treatment options. I hope that helps. ...Read more

The skin I am treating for plantar warts with patches is peeling and a bit pink, should I wait before using more patches so it heals? Or is it safe?

The skin I am treating for plantar warts with patches is peeling and a bit pink, should I wait before using more patches so it heals? Or is it safe?

Silver duct tape: Plantar warts can be stubborn to treat, and often the surrounding skin becomes eroded and painful, with little effect on the actual wart. If the skin around the wart becomes irritated, take a week off the topical salicylic acid treatment, and use silver duct tape. Once the skin is healed, you may restart with the salicylic acid pads. You may need to have your warts treated at the doctors office. ...Read more

Hi I have this wart on the side of my finger I tried using vinegar and antibiotic ointment on it....the skin started to peel around the wart now it ju?

Treating warts: Vinegar won't help warts at all, and neither will antibiotic ointment. If you're sure it's a wart, over-the-counter wart treatments are available (e.g. Compound W and others on the same pharmacy shelves). If uncertain, see a doctor for diagnosis. Good luck! ...Read more

The skin is peeling between my toes, I have dots underneath the skin on the heel of my foot. I don't think it is plantar warts as the skin is smooth?

2 different issues: It sounds like you may have interdigital athlete's foot AND plantar warts on your heel. The skin is smooth because you are walking on it and pressing the wart inward, so it remains level with the normal skin. ...Read more

Can you tell me if wart remover can remove skin tags?

Can you tell me if wart remover can remove skin tags?

Probably: This is an acid and may work. Be careful as this is soft tissue as opposed to something that is hard and needs more liquid to work it out. Would not recommend this but you can try it. Suggest you see a dermatologist.

Is it ok to remove a wart on my arm with plantar wart remover?

Is it ok to remove a wart on my arm with plantar wart remover?

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 different topical chemical treatments. If the treatment is typically uncomfortable, your doctor can numb the area before proceeding. ...Read more
