This whole situation started when I was about 3 or 4, I started developing ulcers on both sides of my cheeks inside my mouth, when I went to the doctor to get these examined, they prescribed antibiotics to treat them and magic swizzle to numb the ulcers themselves, which worked. But, they kept recurring about every six months. Then, about 4-5 years ago, the warts appeared first on my hands then my feet. They started small, but kept growing into what can be seen on the attached image. I went to a podiatrist, and they attempted to treat them to no avail. I then went to multiple dermatologists without any luck in bettering the situation. Then, about 2 years ago, i developed a more severe ulcer in my mouth that caused me to go to the emergency room. While there, they ran bloodwork and determined that my white blood cell count/neutrophil was extremely low, which led to my current treatment with Neupogen, which has worked to lower the frequency of the ulcers. This treatment, however, has had no effect on the warts/growths I'm experiencing. I'm not sure if these are separate issues or if one has something to do with the other, I seem to be at a dead end and it is very frustrating. Any information would be greatly appreciated, I'm just not sure what to do at this point. I'm having a hard time searching for a specialist in this area or any other pertinent information.
