Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I had a wart on my foot. I used highly acidic vinegar on it. It burnt and became worse. I used ancient oil on it and it swelled and now it looks like a big black-brown in color. It is not recovering. What should I do?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You have burnt the superficial skin over the foot by applying the acid. The wart can be simply treated by co2 laser or cryotherapy like good treatment option. Now over burnt skin, you can apply moisturizer. No other specific treatment needs to be done. I suggest you consult a dermatologist for detailed evaluation.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
