I've got flat warts on my hand that are the colour of my skin. I've had them for many years and they won't go away, I hate them. It's probably hpv, no idea who I could have caught it from. It wasn't caught sexually as I'm a virgin and have never been in any kind of relationship. Anyway I want to be rid of these warts, I've tried antibacterial creams and wart cream but they don't work, the wart cream made the area red/darker and it was painful. Is there any natural way of getting rid of them by myself? I don't no why I have them no one else I know had them so why do I have them? I shouldn't still have them. According to google warts can naturally disappear over time or through treatment but it's been years and I still have them. If they weren't flat then I could pop them but they are too flat. I'm stuck with them for life if I can't find a way. Has anyone had this problem? How'd you treat it?

I recommend speaking to a pharmacist or your GP for advice

Can you take a picture?

The self freeze kits work fine, but you need a number of freeze/thaw cycles. I would do each wart 3 or 4 times. It will go red, scabby and sore - that is supposed to happen. You are basically killing the infected cells and they should replace with normal skin. It can sometimes be enough to stimulate the immune system to get rid of others,

You're supposed to stop using it if it gets red/painful because it's not supposed to happen. It says in the instructions. If it gets red/painful then it's an allergic reaction which is what I had so I stopped using it.

I had one and self-freeze kits didn't work. Went to see my GP and he treated it with a 'proper' freezing kit, which got rid of it first time.

Are they in a sensitive area? Because I've heard they can be burnt/frozen off.

Oh, I don't think I've tried a freeze kit. All I saw was gels and creams. Do you have to get it from the counter or can you just pick it up from a drug store like boots?

On one hand they are on the palm and the other hand they're on the bottom of my hand.

I don't want to see my gp, it just gives me anxiety. I want to try and get rid of them myself, I'll only go to my gp as a last resort.

Try taking ‘thuja’ tablets, you can buy them from drug stores and chemists I believe. For it to work you must take them religiously otherwise there is no point and over time they should disappear, it has worked for me in the past. It literally only a works if you keep taking them though.

I don't want to risk buying something like that online, it may do more harm than good when knowing nothing about the product.
