Burned skin around warts after applying salicylic acid.
I have been applying salicylic acid on my warts. My skin near warts is burned. Is it infected? I am a 27-year-old male. What should I do? How should I treat my warts as salicylic acid is not effective?
@jatin Hello, Salicylic acid is effective in treating warts. Salicylic acid peels the skin away in layers, which removes the wart over time. The acid also irritates the wart area, which encourages the immune system to respond to the virus. Other treatment involves exposing the wart to liquid nitrogen in a doctor's office to freeze the wart off. This should be under doctor’s surveillance.
