I just had about 20 flat warts burned off my face today and needless to say, my face looks terrible. Is it harmful/OK to wear face makeup like i normally do? Because as of right now, there is no way I can go out in public if I can't wear anything on my face!
It is normal for treated skin to become red and swollen. Try to avoid any make-up at the moment until the lesions clear up. It is important that you return for follow-up with your doctor for monitoring. Continue with your prescribed medicine, if any. And wound care is essential at this point. Clean the treated area as directed .
