I have a quarter sized red sore on both wrists I woke up with this and was wondering what it is. I have no fever or any other symptom?

Can't say for sure..: ...but I can give you an idea of basic care of open wounds and when to see a doctor. Wash the areas well with soap & water, dry them well & apply a film of antibiotic ointment. Protect it with a bandage if there's a risk of injury or dirt. If it continues to spread, if you notice swollen glands or red streaks or if you get a fever, you will need an antibiotic. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I have a wart like spot on the back of my wrist, it is very red and sore. It first appeared 6 months ago. Is it a wart.

In such a case it's…: Best to have a doc examine the lesion. May be a simple wart, that can be frozen off, but might also be an early skin cancer from sun damage. So in-person inspection is very important to prevent nasty consequences if ignored. Be ready to tell doc when it appeared, if it's grown, if it hurts, if it bleeds, if it itches. Good history helps nail the diagnosis. ...Read more
