One other thing is in the same distribution I have multiple cherry papilloma again want to remove
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

sorry about your seborrheic keratosis

you can use compound W wart remover. this can cause scar tissue on the skin and depigmentation.

it depends on your health insurance plan

but most health insurance plans don't cover cosmetic procedures.

I asked about cherry angiomas and compound W too please in same location as SK. Thanks
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

you can try to freeze the cherry angiomas

but these are best removed by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon

they have better treatment techniques to freeze off cherry angiomas

if you use compound W, this can lead to infection or poor cosmetic results

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Compound W works OK for SK but NOT as well for cherry angiomas?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

it may just work ok for both SK and cherry angiomas

it is meant for warts really.
