Avatar n tn There are several treatments for warts. See a dermatologist for the best one. Warts may need to be treated every two weeks for successful treatment. As the wart is treated and is reduced in size, to continue treating it and making it smaller is the best way to get to the base of the wart to get rid of it for good. Perhaps the one big wart you had was really two warts that grew together.
Avatar n tn but that is the most effective process i have seen for a resistant wart. aldara seldom cures stubborn plantar warts and the acid is not much better. as for shots, that gets expensive and is debateable too. there are not any homeopathic remidies to a wart that has resisted conventional medicine as i know it.

You can want to discuss above mentioned intervention with your kid's pediatric dermatologist before taking a call on surgery. Alternatively you can take a review opinion from other Dermatologist. Hope this helps. Bye.
Avatar n tn Six years ago I had a Plantar Wart removed from my foot, is it possible that this is a residual infection from that? If this is genital warts, will I continue to have outbreaks for the rest of my life? Is it possible I can transmit this to someone else through regular physical touch? I know this sounds extreme, but I feel a bit like my identity as a clean, healthy person has crumpled. I really need some guidance. Thank you.
Avatar n tn If the wart refuses to respond and causes pain when walking, then surgery seems reasonable to consider, even though this is not often necessary for plantar warts. I advise you to get an opinion on this matter from a surgically-oriented podiatrist. Many use laser or scalpel surgery to remove such warts. (The material would be tested as well when it's removed.
Avatar n tn I'm not saying it will work for everyone, my doctor said as much, but it is a damn joke that this treatment exists and you have doctors charging you up the wazoo for laser surgery, surgical excision, Big Pharma charging you $300 bucks for a supply of Aldara or Veregen with spotty, suspect results. If your doctor won't give you the Candida antigen injection, get another doctor.
Avatar m tn As far as therapy is concerned, all treatments for warts have as a common element in that the goal of treatment is to destroy the wart, whether what is used to accomplish this is Aldara, cryotherapy with liquid nitrogen, laser destruction, or any of the other the means for wart therapy. Once the wart is destroyed, typically but not always the healing process in which skin regrows is typically normal and the person's warts are "cured".

Avatar n tn Secondly, it is taking a long time for that red patch of skin to heal. Could it be because I am still putting the Aldara on it ? Should I discontinue the Aldara until the skin heals and then continue ? I think the Aldara is slowing the process of healing. Thanks again for your help.
Avatar m tn additionally, i hv to use aldara to ensure the infected cells are killed there. There are ppl who hv plantar wart for so long, and when left untreated for so long, can leave a hole when the bad cells are killed (there are pix on the net for this) ...gruesome The most enlightening part of the scabbing, of he big unseen wart on my butt is that i no longer hv unexplained back pain in my back, that hv tortured me for so long (for abt nearly 10yrs).
Avatar m tn HPV infections back and forth. However, Aldara treatment is likely to be irritating and for comfort it would be best to avoid sexual contact with the infected tissues if she develops soreness etc at the treatment sites.
Avatar n tn I finally healed emotionally from the months of not understanding what was wrong followed by having an uneccessary surgery. I then found a plantar wart on each foot and continue to receive tx. for them. After trying to always practice safe sex, the condom broke with my next partner in the spring of '06. I immediately got tested for everything and was negative for everything except HPV in my cervix. 1-2months later, I dismissed a never seen lesion(s) for an ingrown hair(s).

Avatar m tn Pathological conditions of HPV infection depends on the type of viral strains which are divided into High risk strains-16, 18, 31, 45 (genital cancers),High risk groups in cases of warts-6, 11, 42, 44 (ano genital warts-condyloma accuminata),moderate risk strains for simple warts-2, 7,Plantar warts-1, 2, 4, 63 (condyloma),Flat warts-3, 10, 8(papilloma) and so on. The risk of transmission from one person to another depends on which type of strain being the culprit.
Avatar f tn I'm duplicating the regimen described in the studies (Two 300mg doses daily for a total of 600mg) and as of today in week four I can say I am wart free. After one week of zinc I got periodic waves of nausea for 2 or 3 days but I stuck with it and they went away. I'm going to keep up this high does for the full 5 week regimen they taper down to a lower dose, maybe 100mg. For those who think 600mg is poisonous or risking toxicity I refer you to two scientific studies (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.
