I've had this wart type thing on my hand for about 8 years now. however I know that it is NOT a wart. it's almost completely flat, very smooth, and just strange. i tried wart removal things when i was younger, but to no avail. it doesn't hurt to pull on it or pinch it. it's just there. there is a faint freckle next to it if that matters haha.
now onto my right hand:
this has been here for about 4 or 5 years. Maybe even longer. it's very leathery feeling, sometimes can crack open and when that happens the crack hurts a bit. it never bleeds though. it is there year round, so no coming and going for this thing.
any idea what either of these could be? i would go to the doctor and check but i don't have insurance and they really don't seem to be that serious anyway. just weird.
I'm sorry but your photo images didn't post properly. In any event photos or not, it is not possible for anyone to be diagnosed or treated over the internet. What I would suggest is you talk to your doctor about it and also your pharmacist if you are looking at OTC (over the counter) wart removal medications.
