My wife is 46 and she has little tiny raised bumps on her legs that look like warts . They're about the size of the head of a straight pin. Idea ?
I had a very small 3mm wart on my leg, my gp froze it last week, now it is like a black scab but 1-inch skin around it is slightly dark reddish like a light bruise, is it normal? It is not painful.
Got this red lump with a tiny lump next to it on the top of left leg and near bladder scared it might be genital warts?
Probably not a wart: First, a "red lump" doesn't sound like a wart. Second, as the name implies, usually they occur on the genitals (mainly the penis in men). A wart could occur at the top of the leg, but quite unusual. Third, only one wart would be unusual. Generally several of them show up at once. See a doctor if you remain concerned about it. Also ask the doctor about getting the HPV vaccine. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I suggest you have these bumps evaluated by your a physician as they may be infectious and may require either a procedure or a prescription medication. All of the above can be exacerbated by shaving. ...Read more
I have 3 warts on my leg and 3 warts under my balls. What is this? What could it be? Please let me know.
Probably no worries: First, see a health professional. Self diagnosis of warts (or any other skin condition) often is wrong. A number of other skin anomalies can look like warts to the untrained eye. Second, even if they are warts, probably no big deal. But I suspect they aren't sexually acquired genital warts, which typically involve the genitals directly (penis, etc) and rarely appear only on the scrotum or thighs. ...Read more
Can warts spread around when they bleed? I have very little warts all over my leg and they bleed when I shave..
I have warts on my leg and they've been removed 3 times. And the dermontologist even cut them off but they came back! what should I do now?
Tough Problem: As common as warts are, they can be excessively difficult to clear. Often, as a dermatologist, we move through the different treatment options until we find the one that finally works. There are dozens of ways to treat warts, some common and some very unique. One very effective method is candida antigen therapy. See your dermatologist for a different option. ...Read more
