Thanks for posting your query.

I can understand your concern.

Warts are viral infections affecting the skin. The treatment of warts is aimed at destroying the virus which can be done by liquid nitrogen or radiofrequency ablation or application of chemical solutions.

Whenever we do a procedure we cannot always get rid of some virus which may already be present in the surrounding skin. As a result of which new warts can keep coming for a while.

You need to apply salactin lotion once at night to the remaining warts.
These will also resolve effectively.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if I can address any other concern.

Thanks for the reply madam.

I have the warts at finger tips.
Virus will spread by the computer keyboad or laptop keys?

Technically it can spread like that.

Hence is better to treat it.

It takes years to spread though.
