Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Good morning, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today, I am sorry if you have been waiting.

Are you able to provide a photo of these warts please? And also, what have you done so far to treat them? If you have used treatment, for how long did you persist with it?

thanks, ***** *****

I've used nothing on them as the pharmacist said not to buy normal wart treatment because it may burn me
Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 6 days ago.

thanks for your reply. Why would you burn yourself?

Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 6 days ago.

Where are the warts? do you have a picture?

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
They are on my face
Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 6 days ago.

I see. Okay thanks, ***** ***** can still use the topical treatments, assuming they are not near your eyes, but if you are worried about doing this, you could use cryotherapy to help with these.

You can get a dermatologist to do this for you or ask your GP to freeze them. It would probably take a few cycles to treat them, depending on their size.

Was this of any help to you?
