Applyi histofreeze directly in skin for warts, is swallow and red burning, is that normal?

Histofreeze: Warnings and precautions: depigmentation of skin is a potential side-effect and may be considered cosmetically unacceptable, particularly with more highly pigmented skin types. Undesirable effects: a stinging or painful sensation during and after freezing, which will rapidly fade away after the thawing phase. Changes in the intensity of pigmentation may occur.

3rd time cryotherapy on common wart. All skin fell off and now just deep dark red skin. Is wart gone? Should I keep applying salacidic acid??

Stop the acid: If it looks like the wart is gone, stop applying anything to the area and let it heal. If it comes back, you can resume the treatment. Let it heal before you create a larger wound from the acid.

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.

Get seen?: Based on your description, I think your intuitive diagnosis is probably correct. These are likely form of Wart. Other possible diagnosis are much less likely as they occur on palmar surfaces. I suggest you see your primary doctor or a dermatologist and biopsy one of these lesions and then treat the rest with one of a variety of treatments. Then you can stop worrying about them! Get well soon.

Red odorous bumps looks like pimples under penis head partner had cancer causing HPV but treated could she give me genital warts? Or is it yeast inf?

HPV or Yeast: The cancer causing strains of hpv differ from those causing genital warts & someone can acquire more than 1 strain and pass it. It may also be dormant for some time before the warts form.Yeast may form an irritating site on a genital surface but I've never seen it cause pimple like structures. Hpv can produce quite a foul odor.

Hi! My friend has developed some small things on his head (skull) they look like dry warts. What is the cause n how can it be treated.

See a physician: Warts are caused by the HPV virus. There are many medications and alternative treatments that work. They also can be removed by a Dermatologist if needed. But before you consider self treatment be sure to have the involved area examined by a physician to be sure you are not dealing with a precancerous actinic keratosis or squamous cell cancer.

Please tell me, could a small red bump on lip be wart?

Please tell me, could a small red bump on lip be wart?

Mucosal warts: Warts do occur on mucosal surfaces like the lip. And one of the changes that the virus induces is a change in the blood vessels, so it could be red. More often the epithelial changes predominate however and it appears a bit whiter than the surrounds. Still if it persists you should have it seen as there are other things that can cause red raised bumps too.

Perhaps.: Any lesion that concerns you as this one does, cannot be evaluated without looking at it. You really need to go to dr. For a skin evaluation so an answer can be given to you. Good luck.

Penile Bumps: It is hard to answer without examination, but if you have no symptoms you may have pearly penile papules, which are benign bumps and do not cause any problems and are quite common. Please have yourself evaluated.

Watch and wait: If it has been there a long time, it is likely to be wart. You may watch it periodically and consult a doctor if: it doubles in size, becomes irregular in shape or color, ulcerates or bleeds, or if more spots develop.
