Warts in face and neck
My sister has small small warts in her neck and face which spreads to chest, armpit, etc. She had rare itching sensation also. She tried using pure turmeric with neem , potato juice and other home remedies. But no effect. Now she used dettol and she says the burning sensation which she had when started using dettol is not now. Can she continue using dettol, so that the warts get cured off?? Plz suggest any other home remedy because she is not okay with the laser treatment. She is getting pain bcoz of that.

Hi! It sounds like your sister is getting skin tags which are extra growths of skin. The best way to get rid of them is to remove it via a method known as electrocautery which is not a laser. It is a simple procedure with no side effects. Please ask your sister to stop using dettol as it won't help solve the problem instead dettol can irritate the skin. Kindly visit a dermatologist for the treatment. We don't recommend home remedies to remove skin tags as they can be associated with secondary infection. You can read more about this on
