I have tiny warts under my breasts. Is it wise to use 5% Fuxex on them? If I do use Fudex do I need to cover the warts? How often should I apply?

No not indicated

You mean Efudex is ointment of 5 Fluorouracil a cancer drug, specifically indicated for superficial basal cancer, some times actinic or solar keratosis. First you should see your doctor or dermatologist to make sure it is a wart , and let him ( or her ) treat. if you want to treat by yourself use some available, over the counter ointment.

I have genital warts which I just had treated.My question is can you get genital warts on your breasts and other parts of your body?

Genital Warts

Warts
Warts are due to an infection with human papilloma virus. There are over 75 related viruses in the HPV family. Some of the subtypes are carcinogenic, and other subtypes have a predilection to develop in certain areas. They are transmited by skin to skin contact and minor trauma with breaks in the stratum corneum facilitates epidermal infection. The answer to a "can " question is always yes.

What are all these warts I'm getting from? Lately I am getting warts all over my body. I have one on the side of my heel, on the side of my nose, under my breasts, on my thighs, and in my armpits. I am 5'2" and overweight (220 pounds) I freeze the warts o

First,

First, are you certain these things are warts and not something else? I ask, because while it's possible to get warts anywhere, they don't typically pop-up all over the body like you're describing. But, for the purpose of answering your question, we'll assume you're correct and they are, indeed, warts. Warts are a virus. The virus only affects the upper most layer of skin, the epidermis. To get a wart, you need 3 things: 1. You need to be exposed to the wart virus. You had to have touched something or someone with a wart to get it. 2. You need some kind of break in the skin for the virus to invade. Since warts only affect the outer layer of skin, you don't have to step on a needle or anything to get a wart. A simple little crack from dry skin is enough for the virus to get in. 3. (and this is the most important factor) You need to be susceptible to the virus. Not everyone is susceptible, and not all body parts are equally susceptible. And susceptibility changes over time. In general, the palms and soles are the most susceptible, but it's possible to get a wart anywhere. Also, in general, adolescents tend to be the most susceptible. It's not impossible for an adult or an infant to get a wart, it's just not as common as people between the ages of 8 and 20. There are many, many treatments for warts. Any time in medicine you see a lot of treatments for one problem, it means we really don't have one best way to treat it. Warts can be stubborn and unpredictable. Considering the odd way in which you seem to be coming down with these things, the best thing to do is stop using the freeze thing you bought, and go see a dermatologist. Good luck!

What causes warts in breast area?

Wart virus

Plantar_warts
Warts are viruses and are contagious. Someone else with warts on their skin or you with warts somewhere else on your own skin can transfer the virus to a new place. It's best to get them removed/treated so you don't spread them further.

what are warts?

Warts

Warts
Warts are small, usually painless growths on the skin caused by a virus called human papillomavirus (HPV). Most, but not all, are generally harmless. Warts can be disfiguring and embarrassing. Sometimes they itch or hurt (particularly on the feet). Some warts spread through sex.

Freezing (cryotherapy, or liquid nitrogen therapy). Your doctor may use liquid nitrogen to destroy your wart by freezing it. This treatment is usually only mildly painful and is often effective, although you may need repeated treatments. Freezing works by causing a blister to form under and around your wart. Then, the dead tissue sloughs off within a week or so. You can try OTC like Salacilic Acid
