What does a white wart mean?

The wart will turn white and wrinkled – this is normal and a good sign that the skin is responding to the treatment. Every few days after soaking, scrape off the dead skin with a disposable razor, metal nail file (that can be sterilized) or by your doctor.

What does a wart look like?

They're usually flesh-colored, white, pink or tan. Common warts are small, grainy skin growths that occur most often on your fingers or hands. Rough to the touch, common warts also often feature a pattern of tiny black dots, which are small, clotted blood vessels.

Why does my wart look like a crater?

These are actually abnormal blood vessels that have been disrupted by the virus. In your case, you do not describe a "bump" or "cauliflower" appearance but rather "small holes." It is common for people with plantar warts not to have large bumps, but rather to have small holes or depressions in their feet.

Will warts go away on their own?

Most warts go away on their own within months or years. Warts can grow anywhere on the body, and there are different kinds. For example, common warts grow most often on the hands, but they can grow anywhere.

How do you get rid of a wart in 3 days?

To use duct tape, stick a small piece on the wart. Remove it every three to six days. Soak the wart in water and scrub it with pumice stone or emery board. Leave it uncovered for 10 to 12 hours.
