Yes, it's just awful, go ahead and laugh, yes, it's funny, but it hurts, and I'm sick of it. I've had it for about 5 years now and I'm sick of it. It's on my index finger, left hand. It hurts to type the letters, f,g,r,t,v, and b... ouch. I've had it removed twice by the doctor. I've bought a dozen bottles of Compound W and the dang thing still persists. Any success stories out there??? I'd try just about anything to get rid of it!
