dr. scholl's wart remover left burn mark on my penis

Help i used Dr. Scholl's wart remover on my penis and it has left a burn mark. It's been 3 days and the mark left around the wart is a deep purple/brown that has not shown any signs of healing. How long will it take to heal on it's own and what can i use to treat the burn?

Hey!

Its cpromeo11 again. i just wanted to update to let other people know what to expect. I have good news and I have bad news. Good news is that if you do not have HPV and use it for another growth on the penis (like I did) it will heal in about a week by means of the scab falling off. To speed recovery use neosporin on the area and then wrap area in a band-aid. If you have HPV and was trying to get the wart of by freezing it, I have no idea what to expect. I would say that you should go see a doctor.

Hope this helps!

HAHA i did the same damn thing also! WTF why aren't these guys responding! I had two small warts on my shaft and burnt the suckers for 15ish seconds with the dr scholls freeze away.. Its been 4 days now and I don't see much improvement.. There's a little black dot next to one of them.. but for the most part they dont really look like their dead. How long does does it usually take for these things to go away after treatment?? Dave1238 have you seen anything change? -or should i just go to my dermatologist?

Don't worry too much. After 7 days or so, the purple/black burn will scab over, and then fall off, along with the wart. It will go away don't worry. But I wouldn't reccomend that stuff on your penis, ever.

i used the dr scholls wart remover on a couple of warts on my penis shaft. the skin got blistery and came off. i treated 3 areas, one area had a cluster of em. problem is i have some swelling on my penis shaft that wont go away. i did this to myself 4 days ago. the swelling has gone down a little on the 2 smaller sites, the larger site the swelling is 1/2" diameter and swollen 1/8" tall. i have tried hot compresses and cold compresses nothing is working. i hope i didnt screw up my ****. anybody have experience with swelling in this area, and how long does it take to come down.

Guys do NOT use this ******* stuff on your penis. Do NOT be as stupid and desperate as I was. Literally the 2 tiny little bump I had on my penis, which were not even genital herpes, are now replaced by two larger skin patches that are left scared from burning the skin clean off. I was in distress and not thinking straight and just stuck the whole thing on there. About the size of a pencil eraser. Now the spot underneith, 7 months later is a white burn mark. With some skin darkening due to the use of scarfade. It somewhat worked. 7 months later still using it. Ive tried mederma bio oil and the are both completely useless and do nothing at all. Scarfade does work when you wrap a bandaid after using it to keep the moisture locked. I have not used it everyday as I'm pretty lazy when it comes to it and Im still sexually active since its not even noticable in certain lighting, such as the darker lighting in my room. The second spot is just red. Just a blant red mark with no signs of recovery after 7 months. Its very ******* stressful to look down and see awkward colors on your penis that arent skin tone and it emotionally drains me every time I see it. I will never show my penis in broad daylight due to judgemental girls now a days. If I dont like the look of the marks I doubt they will. I can't get laser surgery due to the fact that I'm 21 and would never in ******* 500 years bring this matter up to my parents I'll just stick to sleeping with girls with the lights dimmed and stress free. So guys. Please do not be an idiot and use ******* a wart remover on your penis like me. Its the dumbest thing I have ever done in my life. It will never be the same. Seriously a ******* living nightmare. Unless you feel like having scars on your penis, red and bright white, go see a doctor and get it treated proffesionally.

Ad me to the desperate and anxious category. Quick freeze wart remover SHOULD NOT BE USED ON THE ****! My **** looks albino, African American and off white I guess. HORRIBLE!!

Well ****, I just read these comments shortly after using Dr. Scholl's on my wart on my shaft.  And I feel like I pressed down too hard on it, time to get a battle scar....
