I'm just wondering, if you suffocate the warts does it turn black?

Can't really....: Warts get a blood supply from your body so it's really tough to say that they can be suffocated. But they will turn black when the tissue dies. ...Read more

I have a black wart on my toe now what?

I have a black wart on my toe now what?

Lots of ways: Get it treated! You can use the liquid nitrogen, liquid nitrous oxide (this is what I like to use), topical acids, dermal scraping. 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

Use something else: Some people also apply black cohosh directly on the skin. This is because there was some thought that black cohosh would improve the skin’s appearance. Similarly, people used black cohosh for other skin conditions such as acne, wart removal, and even the removal of moles, but this is seldom done anymore. ...Read more

The wart on my finger looks black and is really white around it. Is that a sign its going away?

The wart on my finger looks black and is really white around it. Is that a sign its going away?

Probably: Warts have a velvety surface. Halo nevi are brown & smooth. Melanoma is very unlikely but very important to diagnose early. Have you used any treatment on it? Since you have warts on other areas, this is probably a wart. Best to see a dermatologist. ...Read more

Should I freeze a wart on my toe that is turning black inside if I've already done it once?

May not be a wart: If this is a subsequent result of originally freezing a the suspicious lesion, it may be the effect of the initial cryotherapy and it may be the scab formed. However, not all lesions on the foot are warts, and the ones that change in color are suspicious and should be biopsied. Go to a podiatrist to have it examined. ...Read more

I put a band aid on my inner thigh for 4 warts. Some of them have turned black. Does that mean they're dead? Also, others have reduced in size.

I have a wart on my head. I used wartner, now it's white with black spots. Is this dying?

Not necessarily: The black spots are blood capillaries in the wart. The wart could be alive still. You may need more aggressive treatment but also warts will disappear on their own as your immune system eventually kills them. If you want rid of it now then see your doctor and maybe he/she will use liquid nitrogen to freeze it. ...Read more

Should I re-treat (3rd time) a plantar wart, that has black spots, with Compound W Freeze Off? Child, 10 yrs.

Should I re-treat (3rd time) a plantar wart, that has black spots, with Compound W Freeze Off? Child, 10 yrs.

OTC wart treatments: Yes, you can continue to treat the wart, but follow the directions carefully. If the area becomes red and swollen, go see the podiatrist. Those little black dots are the small blood vessels that "feed" the wart. The acid/freeze compound is designed to destroy the small blood vessels which will in-turn make the wart die and fall off. Warts are viruses. ...Read more

My nine year old son has a wart looking thing on his knee but I can not see any black dots, he peels it off but it's still there?

Common: Part of the mass and all of the warts root system extends blow the skin surface. Effective wart removal will always create a divot in the skin (wound) to get all these elements or it will regrow. If you have tried all the OTC methods and the kid is still complaining, see a doc with the proper tools to remove it for good. ...Read more
