I had cryosurgery to remove a wart on my face a little over a week ago...I was told that the wart would fall off on its own in about a week or two...It fell off after only 5 days...After it fell off, it left behind a reddish, jelly-like scab...The doctor never told me that this would happen, so I'm just wondering if this is normal or not? I was told there would be some discoloration while the area healed, but it was very unlikely that there would be a scar...Wondering what this jelly-like thing is? Was given Aldara cream to use after the wart fell off...Was told to use it three to seven times a week and that I could have it re-frozen in 4-6 weeks if need be...
