I am currently dealing with flat warts located on my hands and arms, and now my legs! Part of the problem is that they are SO small - sometimes I won't see them unless I shower, and the skin plumps up.
The derm has been freezing them, but @ my last visit the doc said it was normal to have bumps on your skin and for me to just come back as needed, even though she admitted that the ones I had were the smallest she'd ever seen!

By now I am completely terrified to shave. I DON'T scratch any itch by fear it might spread. And based on my last visit to the derm, where I felt dismissed, I went home and took a photo of my legs with the warts visible (they look like goosebumps - but not all over, in scattered areas), and am considering seeing another doc.
I'm currently going through 2 yrs of Laser Hair Removal, and about halfway through - I started before I knew I had flat warts, knowing that my skin is very sensitive, and thinking this would be a practical way to end the shaving/irritation/infection issue. But now with flat warts, what do I do? Should I stop shaving completely? Please note I've only been using an electric razor, shaving carefully only 1x/month. At this point I'm considering switching to electrolysis to finish up, although it takes FOREVER to avoid shaving altogether.
It's been about 7 months and it's just an awful blow to my self esteem, and so costly! When I say my skin is sensitive to hair removal, not kidding. Throughout the years I have had Foliculitis, Molluscum, Hot Tub & Heat Rashes, Razor Burn, Chronic Ingrown Hairs, and bad skin reactions (hives/rashes) to bubble bath and pennicilin. Any advise would be very much appreciated!
