Treatments: surgical removal.
Often located in areas of increased friction, these skin-colored or brown outgrowths of skin can easily be removed. For the daring, a single growth can be dealt with using grandmother's recipe of tying of a string around it until it turns dark (the next or second next day), followed by liberal application of an over-the-counter antibiotic ointment. If you are not brave, or if there are many growths, they can be snipped off in the office.
