My wart is bleeding and sore. What is the proper treatment for this?

My wart is bleeding and sore. What is the proper treatment for this?

May not be wart: Warts usually do not bleed. It would be prudent to have a doctor look at it. It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history and physical examination.
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

There is wart splitting that is hurting. What do I need to? The wart is under her toe in the crease. She is five years old, and it is bleeding.

There is wart splitting that is hurting. What do I need to? The wart is under her toe in the crease. She is five years old, and it is bleeding.

Given: Given her age, I would not even attempt to deal with this on your own. Bring her to a podiatrist or dermatologist.

Don't be alarmed about the bleeding. Warts are very vascular, and they build a network of blood vessels around themselves, and bleeding is common. No one ever bleed to death from a wart. Keep it clean & dry, cover it with a band aid or some sort of dry, sterile dressing, reassure her it's not anything she did, not a cleanliness issue, and she will be ok. And set up an appointment as soon as you can. ...Read more

Hi, I have genital wart...i m using tree tea oil to cure it... it is now swollen and bleeding. Wht should I do?

Get seen: I suspect that you've become allergic to this stuff ("herbal remedies" are often not what they're labeled as). Please stop using this or other "pop" remedies, and get with your personal physician. You don't want to get a nasty secondary infection down there. ...Read more

I have genital warts but never had sex with anyone. But I did shave over a wart & it started bleeding & I shaved my vaginal area. Can that be it?

I have genital warts but never had sex with anyone. But I did shave over a wart & it started bleeding & I shaved my vaginal area. Can that be it?

How do you know?: Are you sure it is 'genital warts'? True genital warts are transmitted sexually. Have you had them tested in the past? It may just be a mole. Hard to say without an exam. See your doctor. ...Read more

Doctor, I noticed bleeding after a BM & found fleshy bumps around my anus. Are these anal warts? Can I use Imiquimod 5% cream, from my GP, on these?

Doctor, I noticed bleeding after a BM & found fleshy bumps around my anus. Are these anal warts? Can I use Imiquimod 5% cream, from my GP, on these?

Get checked!: We cannot tell what those bumps are from your description. Do not put anything on them until you have been examined. This may be hemorrhoids but there are other possibilities, inc. Warts but only an in-person exam can sort them out. Your doc can do this, as well as order any further tests that may be required and then tell you your best treatment options. ...Read more

Ocasional bleeding rectum it drips after toilet. Doctor said warts/dermatologist skin tag and surgeon did nothing. I think its internal piles what to do?

Ocasional bleeding rectum it drips after toilet. Doctor said warts/dermatologist skin tag and surgeon did nothing. I think its internal piles what to do?

See another doc: The most common causes are hemorrhoids or an anal fissure. If there is extreme pain with bowel movements (like sharp glass cutting you) it's likely a fissure. If not, it's more likely hemorrhoids.
You are young, so a rectal/colon cancer is less likely, but you need to have an exam to definitively determine this. Start with your family doctor. If no answers, ask for a referral to colorectal. ...Read more

If I am bleeding between periods, does this mean that my genital warts are healing and my body is successfully getting rid of HPV?

If I am bleeding between periods, does this mean that my genital warts are healing and my body is successfully getting rid of HPV?

Unlikely related: Bleeding between periods is unlikely to have any relationship with your HPV status. The warts are external & either clear on their own over a couple of years or you have them removed. The bleeding reflects internal issues within your womb & may require further investigation if it continues. ...Read more
