What would doctors do to take care of a wart on my ankle without seeing a doctor?

*IF* it's a wart.: 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 different topical chemical treatments. If the treatment is typically uncomfortable, your doctor can numb the area before proceeding. ...Read more

Bump: The only way to know what that is would be to see your doctor or dermatologist and have it biopsied. That would not only give your the answer you need but it would remove the bump as well. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Can a plantars wart (on the bottom, outside part of the foot) cause foot, ankle and calf swelling and pain? Or is it likely 2 separate issues?

Can a plantars wart (on the bottom, outside part of the foot) cause foot, ankle and calf swelling and pain? Or is it likely 2 separate issues?

Not directly related: These are likely separate issues. A plantar wart can create pain, resulting in a change in your gait (how you walk) and thus put more pressure on other areas of your leg. Thus, it's theoretically possible these two issues are INDIRECTLY related. However, foot/ankle/calf swelling and pain without an injury make me think about a potential blood clot. Please seek help from a physician if persistent. ...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..

Yes: You are likely spreading them when you shave. Warts are caused by a virus that is easily spread when there is trauma to the wart. Throw away your razor, stop shaving for now. Go and see your doctor for treatment. ...Read more

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
