I have a spot on the palm of my hand. At first I thought it could be a bite/wart but it looks full of yellow puss. What is it and how can I get rid?

Small infection: Maybe you got poked by something? Maybe with a little splinter underneath the skin? If have multiple on palms as well as other areas of skin, call doc for eval asap as it could mean systemic illness such as gonorrhea etc. If just only one, get a clean needle, clean area with rubbing alcohol and lancet/open it to allow draining of the puss. Then keep clean, dry should do it. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Rash: Although this may be vesicular dyshidrosis (common benign skin condition), without actually being able to see it makes it very difficult to say. If this keeps up and is disturbing you, go and show it to your family doctor. ...Read more

Why is my left ring finger strangely growing from the center palm? Cyst? In the hand? What I thought was the start of a wart is now painful. Infection?

Incomprehensible: I am sorry but this is so far out of the realm of easy to read words and the description so abnormal that I would advise that you get to your doctor urgently and to get this both identified and treated. ...Read more

Get seen?: Based on your description, I think your intuitive diagnosis is probably correct. These are likely form of Wart. Other possible diagnosis are much less likely as they occur on palmar surfaces. I suggest you see your primary doctor or a dermatologist and biopsy one of these lesions and then treat the rest with one of a variety of treatments. Then you can stop worrying about them! Get well soon. ...Read more

I just noticed a few warts on my palms. Can these transfer to other parts of my body? Would warts on hands be the same strain as genital HPV?

I just noticed a few warts on my palms. Can these transfer to other parts of my body? Would warts on hands be the same strain as genital HPV?

No: HPV is a common virus in nature and has dozens of strains that effect humans, The strains are like families & each has a preferred tissue where it lives/is found. The common genital wart strains (6, 11 & others) are different from those that show up on the skin/palms (1, 2, 4 & others). The warts on your palm may find their way to spread to other regular skin sites. ...Read more

I have a cluster of warts (some large, some) that started in my left hand, and now I have them appearing on my right, what could cause that?

I have a cluster of warts (some large, some) that started in my left hand, and now I have them appearing on my right, what could cause that?

Have to respond...: Because of your colorful description. Warts are caused by a common virus (HPV) of which there are almost 200 types. Most common in children/young adults and breakouts more common if handling meat/poultry/fish frequently. Dermatologist may provide options for treatment. As an immunologist, I would want to ensure that you have good immune cell function, but that may be a premature step at this point ...Read more

How much does it cost to remove 7 warts at a dr. Office in dallas tx.? I have been having warts grow on my rigth hand for maybe 2 years now. I have 3 full grown warts and 4 that are growing. They're pretty big too. I've tried dr. Scholls freeze away and d

Doctors: Doctors are typically under contract to provide services at a set cost so it is difficult to tell you cost. My guess it would be $200 dollars or so and might take more than one visit to treat them. I would call and ask your local dermatologist. Liquid nitrogen therapy in the office can be very helpful. Otc options aren't usually all that effective unfortunately. Perhaps consider filing each night, applying an otc salicylic acid, and then occluding with duct tape. That can help in some cases and might be worth a try. ...Read more
