I have an embedded splinter in the palm of my hand. It caused warts to grow which I have had treated 3 times by dermatologist to remove warts. They still come back. I have now developed a bond growth(?) in that same hand but nearer my fingers. I5t looks like the splinter(s) have caused further problems which indicates the slinteer needs to be removed. It will require a doctor to get it out. What doctor-specialty should I go to that can cut out the splinter and the hard growth?
Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer: Sorry for your discomfort.

An orthopedic specialist doctor can easily remove the splinter for you. If you want can locate some for you near your town or state, if you do not have any in mind. It's likely that the main wart is persisting due the splinter in place.

I noticed that you have tried other effective products, but keep the information on the following product for future.

Applying cantharidin. Your doctor may use cantharidin on your warts. With this treatment, the doctor "paints" the chemical onto the wart. Most people don't feel any pain when the chemical is applied to the wart. You'll experience some pain and blistering of the wart in about 3 to 8 hours. After treatment with cantharidin, a bandage is put over the wart. The bandage can be removed after 24 hours. When mixtures of cantharidin and other chemicals are used, the bandage is removed after 2 hours. When you see your doctor again, he or she will remove the dead skin of the wart. If the wart isn't gone after one treatment, your doctor may suggest another treatment.
