Thanks for Ur query..,

U R educated...why you are doing like this ?..,

Flat warts on Ur hand are due to Viral infection ..,caused by papilloma virus..,

1) Now we are using simple invasive procedure...not expensive one

RF (Radio-Frequency) cautery will give very good result without leaving much scars...,

2) after RF treatment ..superficial leaving marks are treated by Scar Q cream (Kojic acid and vitamin C)...,

3) Lycopene and vitmin A capsule for 10 days ...,o.k goodluck

Thanks for writing to us.

After chemical peeling of the warts sometimes some superficial scars or deficits in the epidermis are seen due to the removal of warts. These are mostly superficial scars and heal on their own without any treatment in 4-6 weeks. You can wait for these scars to heal spontaneously.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
