So does it mean that it's almost gone? If its flat from the side and looks like a scar? Is it close to going away? (finger wart)

No: Wart viruses are specific to the type of skin they live in. Genital warts inhabit specific types of tissue, including the male and female genitals & the anal skin. In people with weak immunity, (AIDS) they can be found on the oral lips. Skin warts are specific to thicker skin surfaces including that of feet/hands and regular skin. ...Read more

Got third blister/ wart type thing in over a year. All on fingers. Size is in mm. Can feel sensation. Not painful. Liquid filled. How to get rid?
If a woman is infected with hpv type 6 and has 2 genital warts can the infection be passed on to a man if he only used his fingers?
A number of over the counter "removers" most contain salycilic acid.
Warts are caused by the Papilloma virus thus can be spread! I would strongly advise seeing a Board Certified Dermatologist who can remove your warts safely and quickly with advanced Dermatologic laser based equipment!
Hope this helps

Aspirin duct tape: Wet Aspirin made into paste covered by duct tape changed every few days will slowly decrease the warts.

Acid and scraping: A otc acid and scraping with a pumice bar will help. If not, you can use the liquid nitrogen, liquid nitrous oxide (this is what I like to use). You can also try oral cimetadine (400 mg three times a day for 12-16 weeks). This is very safe and had the side effect of getting rid of warts for many people of adult size and weight (japma november 1, 1995 vol. 85 no. 11 717-718). ...Read more
Usually leave alone: Warts often disappear on their own. I frown on home treatment because I have seen the disasters cause by this. If one does not know what they are doing, harm can come. There are tendons and joints on the fingers and they can be harmed. See a doctor and get the warts either injected, frozen, chemically treated or even perhaps :"burned" or lasered off or other treatment. Dermatologist r the 1. ...Read more
The wart will likely grow back since it is still present. However warts are slow growing, so this won't be a rapid process. Apply over the counter compund w as directed until the entire wart falls off. Another option is visit your doctor and request the wart be burned or frozen off.
Good luck. ...Read more
