Lots of things: Sometimes the skin just turns velvety, with a thicker epidermis. It's a common spot for papillomas and common warts, as well as acanthosis nigricans. Cancers almost never pop up here. Best wishes. ...Read more

I burned off a wart on my arm, and I'm wondering if this could lead to it spreading more? I've had it for years and remains localized to my elbow. It is a common wart.

I burned off a wart on my arm, and I'm wondering if this could lead to it spreading more? I've had it for years and remains localized to my elbow. It is a common wart.

Probably not a wart: It is not feasible to know for sure without having examined the "wart", but if it was there for years, it is unlikely to have been a wart. For now, you may watch and wait, if the lesion comes back or spreads, be sure to see a doctor.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Probably normal: Every male has "small white bumps" on the penile skin, normal sebaceous glands and hair follicles. If you are sure this is new and/or abnormal, see your doctor or a dermatologist. In the meantime, this description doesn't sound at all like genital warts. And common skin warts don't get transmitted to the genital area, so that's really not something to be concerned about. Best wishes. ...Read more

My daughter has been getting tiny wart looking bumps first on her foot that went away then on her thigh now on her elbow, what could they possibly be?

Molluscum...: Molluscum contagiosum is a viral infection that causes little pearly bumps on the skin. They are harmless and painless and usually go away on their own (could take a few years). Another possibility is that they are truly warts. It doesn't sound urgent, but it'd be good to have her doc take a look at them just to be sure. ...Read more

What is the best way to get rid of arm and leg warts, fast and without pain?

Home remedy: Each night before going to bed soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar, apply it to the wart and then hold it in place with a band-aid. Leave it on all night, or if you like, 24 hours a day but change the soaked cotton and band-aid each evening for a week. The wart will swell and may throb as it reacts with the vinegar and then start to turn black within the first two days and in two weeks gone. ...Read more

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