For a few weeks now, it does hurt when I touch them or upon their contact with other surfaces

Okay. I think this is definitely not warts

It is a form of eczema

you will need a pretty potent steroid cream to resolve this

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.
