Hi,

Thanks for your query.

The pores could be due to blocked sebaceous gland ducts.I do not think the lesions you mentioning as warts could really be warts, Probably they are minute papillomas which are usually wart like and occur on face.

Apply ADAPALENE ointment over the face to treat the pores and any sort of the acne.For the Papilloma you may have to consult the dermatologist who after examining would confirm the diagnosis and plan the management which includes special ointments with Imiquomod .

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.

fine and thanks for your valuable suggestion sir.. you've mentioned ADAPALENE ointment, what is it actually ? whether it'll be available in all medical stores .
And about warts, will it disappear on its own after three months?

Hi,

Adapalene is an Vit A derivative and is available as an Over the counter medications in most of the pharmacies and stores.

I suggest you to get the wart like lesions examined , the treatment depends on the exact diagnosis which can be made after an hand on examination by a dermatologist.They disappearing on their own is less likely.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you speedy recovery.

Hi ,

Do not try any lotions when applying adapalene.Most of the lotions block the pores to prevent oily skin.

You can use a Medicated soap named ERYTOP .Also Santoor with Glycerine and Vit E is another alternative.

Wish you good health.
