Customer Question

I started to get the odd wart on my hands when I was young. I used compound w to get rid of them. as the years progressed, I kept getting more warts. Since turning 50 I now have them on my arms and my legs. 99% of them are small, the size of a pen tip. There are about 50 on each leg and about 20 on each arm. I am now 56 years old. Is there a name for this condition and what can I do about it?
Thank You,
