hello

Thanks for your patience.

You seem to be having inflammation around the wart and thats the reason it is causing pain and redness.

you would need to take Tab. tylenol once a day for 5 days.

also application of neosporin cream on it twice a day will be helpful.

You will need to take an oral antibiotic which will help to resolve the inflammation.

you will need to get a prescription for the oral antibiotic.

Tylenol and neosporin cream are available without a prescription.

Please let me know if you have any queries.

Ok great thanks! I’ll need to wait til Monday for them to open, can this be bad? I’m a little worried and seems as though it’s getting bigger/ there’s a line coming off it and across my leg too
Expert:  Dermadoc replied 7 days ago.

yes, it would be best to get it treated as soon as possible. because the inflammation seems to be spreading, it is slowly causing an infection of the soft tissues, which needs to be prevented.

tab. Tylenol will help with the inflammation to some extent.
