I had a little bump on my left index finger. I didn't think much of it, so I cut it off this weekend. My mom asked what I was doing and I told her. She said it was probobly a wart. Now I see another bump on the bottom side of the same finger. WTF? So now I'm using DuoFilm to get rid of it. What the heck even causes a wart? I'm so frustrated with this.

haha. God I hope not.

Can you actually get warts from being stressed out?

Hows this.

Freezing them is the best bet. The idea is to kill the wart, not make it smaller.

Cutting off warts causes cancer. No joke.

When i had a few on my hands, the doctor i went to gave me a weak acid solution to put on them, and after applying that for a few days / a week or two, i just cut them off myself. Worked pretty well for me. The common way to get rid of them is the freezing method though, my mate got that done.

The other method is to wait until your body figures out the virus and builds antibodies. :)

I'm using DuoFilm. It's an acid remedy. But if it doesn't work, I'll go and get some of that freeze off stuff I've seen comercials for. I'm just pissed. I hate warts and I haven't had any since I was super young. (3 or 4 years old.)

When you pick at moles it just makes you more liable to cancer. It doesn't exactly mean you are going to get it.

I know cutting off moles causes cancer but I've heard warts do too. My point is don't pick at stuff on your body.

thats probably the worst thing you could do. it will only end up spreading to your other hand.

Eww. I can't help it. Maybe I just need to start wearing gloves so that I can't pick. I wouldn't want it to spread to my face cuz I pick at it and I have a wart on my hand. From now on I'm gadda try really hard not to pick at anything.

Whenever I get them, I just rip them off.

Hurts like a bitch, bleeds like a bitch, but gets rid of the problem.:happysad:

I guess I don't feel so bad that other people get them too. But arent' they embarassing to you? I don't tell anyone I know in person that I have a wart. I just think it's so gross.

If you've had to live through the warts I had to live through in elementary school, you'd get used to it.

I had a huge one on my knee. It was all green and nasty, and nothing I tried could get rid of it. It finally went away by itself after about 3 years.

Keep in mind that a wart is caused by a virus.
