Hello,
Your doctor may be meaning salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is the active ingredient in most of these treatments. Salicylic acid and other wart treatments also destroy healthy skin, so it is important to protect your skin before applying the treatment. You can use petroleum jelly or a corn plaster to cover the skin around the wart. You may need to apply the treatment daily for 12 weeks or longer. You should stop the treatment if your skin becomes sore.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
