Through self-diagnosis I believe I have genital warts. I know the doctor is probly the place I should go, but I am uninsured and and slightly embarrassed. I did extensive researchon the net and decided it was worth trying a couple over the counter wart removers on the genital warts. Salicylcic acid seemed to work in making them smaller but it takes a while, So i tried dr scholls freeze away on one of the 2 warts. The wart appears smaller but the diameter of the freezing applicator was bigger than the wart itself. Consequently I have skin discoloration around the wart itself and the wart is now a different color. THis makes things much more noticeable. My concerne is will the sdiscoloration heal itself I have been applying a neosporin type gel on it for about a week. It has been a week and a half since the freezing treatment. Wiil the discoloration go away and how long can I expect it to take? and does anyone know any home remedies for a rather small genital wart?
I have this same problem :(
Especially on the tiny little ones that are just barely noticable... in about a week new skin should have grown back... I was thinking next time, I should mask the area with tape or something? I don't know for sure, but it's worth a try :(
