What are all these warts i'm getting from? Lately I am getting warts all over my body. I have one on the side of my heel, on the side of my nose, under my breasts, on my thighs, and in my armpits. I am 5'2" and overweight (220 pounds) i freeze the warts o

First, : First, are you certain these things are warts and not something else? I ask, because while it's possible to get warts anywhere, they don't typically pop-up all over the body like you're describing. But, for the purpose of answering your question, we'll assume you're correct and they are, indeed, warts. Warts are a virus. The virus only affects the upper most layer of skin, the epidermis. To get a wart, you need 3 things: 1. You need to be exposed to the wart virus. You had to have touched something or someone with a wart to get it. 2. You need some kind of break in the skin for the virus to invade. Since warts only affect the outer layer of skin, you don't have to step on a needle or anything to get a wart. A simple little crack from dry skin is enough for the virus to get in. 3. (and this is the most important factor) you need to be susceptible to the virus. Not everyone is susceptible, and not all body parts are equally susceptible. And susceptibility changes over time. In general, the palms and soles are the most susceptible, but it's possible to get a wart anywhere. Also, in general, adolescents tend to be the most susceptible. It's not impossible for an adult or an infant to get a wart, it's just not as common as people between the ages of 8 and 20. There are many, many treatments for warts. Any time in medicine you see a lot of treatments for one problem, it means we really don't have one best way to treat it. Warts can be stubborn and unpredictable. Considering the odd way in which you seem to be coming down with these things, the best thing to do is stop using the freeze thing you bought, and go see a dermatologist. Good luck! ...Read more

I am told that genital warts can appear on one's thighs? What other parts of an HPV positive person's body can spread it?

Anywhere: The most common areas to spread hpv are the cervix and the penis, but the genital areas, anus, hand and possibly the mouth can too. Theoretically, any touching could, but it is thought to be primarily via sexual contact. ...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?

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

Any changes?: Hi Brandon: Skin pigmentation, or spots, are not uncommon and most are of no medical concern. With that being said, if the "spot" has changed at all (color, size, elevation, itching, etc) or if you are just concerned and worried about it, then please make an appointment with a dermatologist and get it examined. Call today. Good luck ...Read more
