Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Small skin warts are spreading on my face and neck drastically. Can you please suggest the cure for this kind of a virus infection? It started one and a half months back. But, I only recently realized that it is multiplying.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your concern is verruca planae. It is caused by the human papilloma virus. Avoid shaving until you completely get rid of the virus. Start Zinfate or Zitcare tablets twice daily for three months. It is a pure zinc tablet which boosts up your immunity. I suggest you plan for cryotherapy by a dermatologist. Do not plan for cautery or radiofrequency excision as the chances of recurrence are high. Start using Wartnil lotion (Salicylic acid) on the wart. Use it weekly once. Apply only on the wart for a period of two hours and then wash off with wet cotton. Protect the adjacent skin with Vaseline.

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