Removal of wart, changed appearance, scabbed. Matter of concern?

20+ years ago a Dermatologist removed a wart from the back of my hand . I ve had a dull black mark there ever since. Int he past few days I ve noticed it change in appearance. It now looks like it has a scab in the center which is also black. I don t remember hitting it over the last few days so I don t know why it would change. It is directly over a vein though. Is this something I should be concerned about?

Nothing to worry. Your doctor has removed wart and now the sore caused is under healing process.

Take antibiotics for short period.

Take anti inflammatory drugs..

Apply antibiotic cream till complete healing.

You may take immunobusters to prevent the relapse.

I hope you got my answer.
