Kindly upload images

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to ask a doctor service. I have gone through your query and noted your concern.

I would like to know whether they are raised or flat?
Do you have any associated symptoms?

Also I request you to kindly upload a few clear images of the affected area in "Reports Section " so that I am able to have a look and guide you accordingly.

Take care. Hope to assist you further once I get the images

Brief Answer:
Dermatosis papulosa Nigra

Detailed Answer:
Thank you. I have viewed the Images.
These are NOT warts. They are Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra (DPN)- benign epidermal growths that occur most commonly on face. Most patients also have an affected family member, so there is an genetic predisposition. They can grow in number over a period of time but mostly remain small in size. Nevertheless, they can be easily removed, with an excellent cosmetic result, either with a laser or with radiofrequency cautery machine.
Take care. Let me know if you need any more assistance.

Brief Answer:
Dermatosis papulosa nigra

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Chances of some post inflammatory hyperpigmentation if you don't use a sunscreen after procedure (pigmentation is reversible, though) but otherwise no scarring and no other complication if done by an experienced dermatologist. Unfortunately I don't have any specific reference of a dermatologist in XXXXXXX You can do a Google search and take it from there.
