Question: hi Doctor Kakkar, I recently asked you a question regarding chunk of cell on my neck. Please see below summary of old question.



hello, I have got a small chunk of cells on my neck. seems to be coz of scratching. I thought of it as dead skin which generally forms during healing, but these are actual cells coming out and look bad. the size of this is very small. can you suggest what it is?

Brief Answer:
Wart; Electrocautery

Detailed Answer:
Hi. Thank you for writing to us

I have gone through the query and also reviewed the Image.

I can see that you have a wart/ verruca on neck. This is an infection caused by Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). This would require removal with an Electrocautery Machine. I suggest that you visit a dermatologist in your vicnity for the needful.

Brief Answer:
Removal Or surgically cauterising it, is the only option

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

No. Removel with an electrocautery Or CO 2 Laser are the only options. These are very minor procedures.
Creams would not work for this.
