Warts on top of head

I have 4 bumps that I think are warts on the top of my head.  I had planters warts on the bottom of my feet, treated them (they are now gone) but now have them on the top of my head.  Did I treat them too much?  What Can I do?  Can a dermatologist take them off?  Thanks for any advice!!

Hi

Firstly, we need to ascertain that these are indeed warts. They may be present there due to autoinoculation. That is, you could have infected yourself given that you had a previous history of warts. You may need to have this removed. They may be irritated and they may bleed. Cryotherapy after application of salicylic acid may help. Do not self medicate. We do not want any infections on the area. The scalp is a sensitive area and most OTC medications for warts are abrasive and may involve even normal skin.
