Start off with a consult with your pediatrician or family doctor. ...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.
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 this is new and/or abnormal, see your doctor or a dermatologist.

I think my wife has a wart on her arm but it looks different. How do we tell and we tried to freeze it.
I have a wart on my arm. It's fairly small. I've tried freezing it off, didn't work. I bought bandaids. I'm afraid it will begin to hurt. Will it?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
