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. ...Read more

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! ...Read more

Wart virus: 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. ...Read more

Genital 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. ...Read more

Gone is gone: Once the HPV warts have been treated and have been documented to have departed, unless there is a visible recurrence then they are now GONE and there is no risk to the delivery of your baby nor can it be transmitted by the breast. Tell your OB MD so she/he can check the genital area prior to the delivery to be certain. ...Read more
