Both the medications prescribed to your are not for warts.

Thank you for your response Dr. Kumar: I will send you photograph as quickly as I can figure out how to do so on this computer. Unfortunately, I am not computer savvy/knowledgeable...I will have to ask someone to help with that tomorrow as it is rather late for today.

I have one question: in the meantime: should I be applying the Clotrimazole and Betamethasone Dipropionate cream? I just started to use it today, if it makes the warts worse, I will stop. Please let me know? Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Removal by radiofrequency ablation is best

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank for the photograph,
I can see there are multiple lesions.
Cream will not be much effective.
Best is to XXXXXXX a dermatologist and get them removed by radio frequency ablation.
You have few mole also, even these can be removed in same sitting.
Following this you can apply podophyllotoxin cream.
This will give long lasting result.

Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you
