Second opinion] a few months ago, i had an ingrown hair on my face (chin) after shaving. This became infected and now has turned into something i have never seen before. it has wart-like properties or the skin has healed around a small hole. i have tried treating it with wart cream. The cream works clears up the healed skin around the hole but leaves the hole exposed. it heals the same way again. Any suggestions would help.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the skin issue? Have you noticed any major changes in your overall skin or nails recently?

This has been going on for 4-5 months. no additional changes anywhere else

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.
