Brief Answer:
I suggest electrocautery or radiofrequency cautery treatment

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you for writing to us.

I am Dr. Kakkar (Dermatologist). I have gone through your query and I have noted your concern.
The best way that would be painless, instant and would give cosmetically excellent result would be either electrocautery or Radiofrequency cautery. Topical ointments and home remedies are not effective. They might irritate and cause side effects like pigmentation, pain and bleeding.
