Hello,
Thank you for writing to HCM.

You might be having viral warts according to the history. We need to see clinical picture to confirm the diagnosis.

I would advice you to meet you dermatologist in person for cauterization and removal of the warts.
Till the procedure is done do not shave, touch or scratch the affected area.

Regards.
