Brief Answer: stop using duofilm Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query. Duofilm is a good treatment, but probably you have over used it. This might have caused ulceration. Actually Duofilm should be used an alternate day and should be applied only on the wart and not in surrounding area. Stop using it now and apply an antibacterial cream like mupirocine. This will help in healing the lesion. Once the lesion heals and skin becomes hard, you can go for further treatment like excision of the wart using radiofrequency ablator. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
