Warts on hands

Jun 22, 2007

Im 27 years old(South African). Please advise me on hoe to remove the hedious warts on my hands. I have been on treatment for over a year now, and they seem to be getting worse. My health is fine, and I've gained alot of weight. I eat healthy. Why is this happening

Response from Dr. Daar

This process may or may not be related to your infection. Warts on the hands are not uncommon. Most are removed by freezing or by being scraped off with a blade. Regardless, these are best managed by a good dermatologist. I would suggest you talk to your primary provider about a referral if at all possible.

Best, Eric
