Small White Bumps On Fingertip...

Two years ago I noticed a bump on my right index fingertip...

It started small and within a month or so got bigger, but then stopped growing.

I thought it was perhaps a wart, so I treated it with the Freeze-off at home treatment...

It reduced the bump, but it never went away.

I have tried various wart treatments over the last two years and none of them seem to work.

Now I have two more small bumps on my index finger and one on my thumb.

All of the bumps are white/fleshy colored and they don't hurt or itch at all...

I am not sure if they are warts anymore, as I never had warts before in my life... and they don't seem to look like the warts I see in pictures.

Does anyone know what else these bumps could be and what I could use to get rid of them?

  • They are most likely warts -- there are dozens of types of warts that can look totally different from the common ones.OTC treatment has to be done for quite a long time on them - basically the virus (which is the cause) is hard to get rid of.If you are concerned, go see your doctor or a dermatologist. Both will have more effective treatments than the OTC ones.
