HelloCustomer

 

Are you sure they are warts?

 

How long have you had them?

 

Do they itch or drain anything?

 

Thanks,

macy

I have had them for about a year, I told by my dr. but I lost my med coverage. there is no drainage, but they continue to grow, no itching but a little tingly feeling sometime.

\Thank you for your response.

 

Warts are caused by a virus , usually hpv virus and are contagious.

 

As you know a doctor could freeze them and they would fall off, but I understand not wanting that expense without health coverage.

 

Some dermatologist will charge you only a flat fee for how ever many they can remove at one time so that may be an option for you.

 

There are over the counter wart removers but you would not want to use them around your eyes or mouth.
