I experienced an outbreak of flat warts on my face. I seeked treatment from a dermatologist and he applied liquid nitrogen on 6 different occassions. About 10 days after the last treatment, my face become red, itchy and inflamed. Three days after this, my face cleared up; all the warts had gone away (approximately 1 month ago). I have read some primary sources and they have stated Spontaneous Remission of flat warts generally results in an immunity to this HPV strain. I have noticed a few little bumps on my face this week and I am just wondering if this is something I should be concerned about or not (i.e. is it possible to have flat warts again, after my body had fought off the warts).
'Common warts are different from moles, and they aren't cancerous. In fact, they're usually harmless and often disappear on their own. But you may find common warts bothersome or embarrassing, and you may want treatment to remove them.
Usually common warts grow on your hands or fingers. Treatment helps prevent common warts from spreading to other parts of your body or to other people. But common warts may recur after treatment, and they may be a persistent problem.'

hi i am 20 and have had flat warts on my lower left cheak for nearly two years now. recently the have spread to my cheak on the ither side of my face. i have had two liquid nitrogen treatments from my dermatologist on the larger ones, but i have at least fifty small, pin point size ones that he said were to small to treat and that id have to wait and see if they got bigger. i was woundering what other treatments i could get that could get rid of them, as they are quite visible when i wear make up and very embaressing when someone notices them and asks what they are
I have been researching remedies for flat facial warts & have found several approaches including: taking a Multivitamin with extra Vitamin C & Zinc Sulfate to boost the Immune System; Thuja Extract used on the skin twice a day; taking Elderberry Extract; Witch Hazel used on the skin twice a day; & Dermisil used on the skin. I hope that maybe one of these approaches will be successful.
Hello , I have flat warts on the left corner of my mouth, not herpes....my flat warts are a brownish color . My dermatologist has tried zapping them ( hot electric needle) and they returned about 3 days later. So , I didn't schedule another appointment for about 6 months so when I returned to my dermatologist they tried freezing it off with nitrogen but yet again they still returned! This is absolutely embarrassing and I'm desperate to get them rid of. I always scratch my nose or something to cover it up when I talk to people in which they probably think I'm a total freak! So is there anything else I could try out?
