I had a bump in my vagianl area biopsied and it turned out to be a wart. The area surrounding the biopsy is sight is hard allaround it. Kind of like swelling but no pain or infection. Is this normal, could the doctor of damaged my skin during the biopsy?
The hard skin after biopsy should go away after a few days since it is painless and hence the possibility of any infected abscess is ruled out. Apply warm compresses and take some antiinflmmatory drug like Acetaminophen after consulting your doctor.
