Customer Question
I started to get the...
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,

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
