I have a hole where my wart on my leg used to be. I got it off with apple cider vinegar and now theres a hole. I am afraid that the wart will grow back because around the hole my skin is raised just like the wart but with a hole in the middle of it. Also the hole wont heal. Should I continue with the apple cider vinegar treatment?

Hello,
Welcome to healthcare magic
Are you still continuing the treatment. It is an irritant which causes chemical burns and maybe that is the reason for the hole not healing.
If the border is raised like a wart it could be recurrence of wart.
I would advice you to see a dermatologist and get the...

Hello My name is Michael. My Wife has a wart above her eye. My Wife has an appointment with a dermatologist to have her wart frozen on October 25th. On Wednesday evening her wart started to bleed and because her wart started to bleed on Wednesday night my wife saw her primary care doctor yesterday afternoon. Her doctor said that it looked more like a skin tag. Her doctor said that her wart or skin tag might come off on its own. If the wart or skin tag comes off on its own is that an emergency or how is that handled to prevent an infection?

Hello,
Thanks for writing to us

Most warts usually clear up without treatment. It can sometimes take up to two years for the HPV virus to leave your system and for warts to disappear.

Hi, This is easily treated. Make a dilute solution of potassium permanganate (light pink colour) in luke warm water and dip the whole hand in it for ten minutes. Pat dry and apply moisturising cream till it becomes smooth and soft. Continue intermittently so that it does not return. Regards

Hi,
Welcome to HCM.
Pearly penile pappule need no treatment as it has no clinical importance. It is just a normal variant. It will not harm you or your sex partners in any way. The papilae in the skin stood visible. That is all.
You had not mentioned anything about your sexual activities and age....

Hello, 4 months ago i was diagnosed with prostatitis in China. During the treatment - which went on far too long because the doctors tried to cheat me out of my money - I developed small wart like bumps on my penis. I asked the doctor and he said it is nothing and not contagious.
While the prostatitis is gone, the 'warts' have started to spread and another doctor diagnosed them to be Molluscum Contaigiosum. I have no idea where i got this and I'm fairly sexually active.
My biggest concern now is that I might have AIDS. Because after reading up on prostatitis and molluscum contaigiosum, both diseases are said to often appear on AIDS patients.
I haven't shown any other HIV symptons and the last girl I had unprotected sexual intercourse with 4 months ago got diagnosed negatively for HIV 1 month ago.
Could it be that the molluscum contaigiosum appeared when my body was pumped full of antibiotics for the prostatitis treatment and now refuses to go away?

Hello,

I've been diagnosed with HPV having had treatment for one wart which appeared a 6 months ago, and has pretty much nearly gone after treatment. Now however, I've noticed a raised mass of soft tissue next to the frenulum of my penis, and I'm concerned as to what this could indicate. It looks about the same size as that of a pea but strangely it seems to change size every now and then. Could you give me any possible ideas as to what it is? Thanks

I am 28, and diagnosed as genital warts, what should I do? all doctors i have talked with told me that it was hard to cure it. once the wart was removed from my penis by surgery, probably it will occur again in several months. I am concerned about it very much, what should i do?
