Cluster warts are actually an occurrence when a number of plantar warts group together into a cluster. A wart is a fleshy growth on the skin caused by infection with the human papilloma virus (HPV), not a blood disorder. Treatment for this skin condition can take weeks or months. Some treatment options include:

* Salicylic acid (12 weeks or more before the wart disappears)
* Repeat daily after washing.
* Rub dead skin off once a week with a pumice stone or emery board.
* Apply duct tape
* Cryotherapy
* Silver nitrate pencil

thank-u for that information, i will let my friend know, she has had them removed when she was young and now they have come back with a vengence and are very itchy, and leak a clear fluid. I told her to see a skin doctor, but here in canada we have to wait about 6 to 8 months to see a specialist.. We are supposed to have the best health care, which we do, but politics want to keep a totally public system, which is over run with baby boomers.. thanks again ww

Sure thing, WW. Be sure to let her know that they ARE contagious, so she'll want to isolate the area and see a dermatologist ASAP!
