Hello,
Thanks for the query.
I would like to know whether you applied podowart daily.
If yes, you have done a big mistake, It should be applied once a week and that too only by an expert.

It causes severe necrosis of tissue.
you need treatment with oral steroids and antibiotics.
Please XXXXXXX a dermatologist as soon as possible, if dermatologist is not available XXXXXXX a surgeon.
They will try to retract skin and apply medication.
Leaving it as such may cause scarring.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.

Hello,
Thanks for the follow up.
Yes the burning is due to podowart only. It causes necrosis of cells so wherever it touches it will cause burning.
You need treatment with steroids and pharmacist will not give you steroids without prescription. So please XXXXXXX a doctor. Let me know if you have any other doubt.
Thank you

Hello,
yes wart is a viral infection.
It can be transmitted sexually from your partner.
You have not applied on scrotum but the fluid from penis with podowart must have touched your scrotum and hence the itch.
Apply oint fluticasone also take tab avil daily . This will give you relief but my sincere advice is that you please XXXXXXX a doctor. He can see and tell exactly whats happening. Let me know if you have any other doubt.
Thank you
