Avatar m tn Hello, For small warts, several medications(like podophyllum resin, Podofilox (Condylox), Trichloroacetic and bichloroacetic acids, Imiquimod 5% cream and interferons) are available, which can be applied directly to the surface of the warts. Other treatment options include electrical cautery, surgical removal, Carbon dioxide laser treatment and electrodesiccation. In my opinion you should talk to a cosmetologist/dermatologist about this and get these warts evaluated.
Avatar n tn Laser treatment for genital warts, is nothing but vapourising warts and is reserved for tough to treat warts. Laser treatment is very precise and can be used to treat warts in difficult to reach areas. Laser treatment also has a low risk of damage to surrounding tissue. During the procedure, smoke created from the vapourising tissue is extracted by a machine. This can be quite loud and may be alarming if you haven't been warned.

Avatar n tn Several treatment sessions are usually required. The pulse dye laser is a technique for removal, with little incidence of complications like scarring. Other treatments your doctor may use can be use of some immune-stimulator, injections of candida (yeast) or injections of an antibiotic bleomycin (used in cancer therapy). It should be noted that since warts are caused by a virus, they may recur following attempts at surgical removal. However, they often heal themselves within one- two years.

Avatar m tn shtml Some stubborn cases of folliculitis have been responsive to laser-assisted hair removal. This process uses a laser to destroy the follicle. This reduces the scarring that results from folliculitis. Let us know if you need any other information and consult a skin specialist if the lesion is persistent. Regards.
Avatar f tn It is also possible to get warts from using towels or other objects used by an infected person. For small warts that affect only the skin around the anus, several medications(like podophyllum resin, Podofilox (Condylox), Trichloroacetic and bichloroacetic acids, Imiquimod 5% cream and interferons) are available, which can be applied directly to the surface of the warts.

Avatar f tn You may need cryotherapy using liquid nitrogen or laser therapy to remove the warts. For some, repeated sessions of wart removal using curettage or electrodessication may be helpful although some degree of scarring may occur .You may discuss with your physician the use of topical medications such as those containing salicylic acid and retin A. They may be helpful when applied to the wart several times a day. However, it is best that you inform your physician about this.

Avatar n tn Has anyone had laser surgery for genital warts removal before? I am worried about the scarring and the recovery part of the surgery. My Dr. said I would be in bed for about 15 days following the surgery, and that it would take about 1 month to heal completely. I've heard about horror stories... bad scarring... tissue sticking together... skin not being the same afterwards, and complicated intercourse following the surgery. Does anyone have any info? Thanks!

Avatar f tn I have been dealing with flat warts for 3 years now , I have had a very similar experience to you . I have them on my legs , I have tried every at home / over the counter treatment with no results they always come back even a daily bleach rinse to kill any virus , apple cider vinegar, duct tape , I have had them frozen a multiple times . At one point I had a bi-weekly standing appointment for cryo it seemed to really help . I as well have done Aldera cream .
Avatar m tn ok i had laser surgery two days ago now the warts are shrivling up and they are like very soft and when i try to wash n dry them the wart starts to peel very easly i think i can peel the warts but i herd thats not good to do so i was wondering, since they are practicly sliding off when i tuch them can i go ahead and peel the layers off.
Avatar n tn You should discuss with a doctor about other treatment options such as surgical removal or removal by freezing (cryotherapy), burning (electrocautery), laser treatment, immunotherapy or some vaccine treatment. Unless warts are very large and uncomfortable, surgical removal or aggressive laser surgery to remove the warts is generally avoided. Several treatment sessions are usually required.

Avatar n tn ive had flat warts for about 9 months. I went to the dermatoglist and they have me on tazorac which is making my skin super irritated. For the first month it look like they were going away. Now they look like acne....they're around my nose and my chin. Should I go back to the derm?
Avatar n tn There is no need to check yourself daily for recurrences- the HPV related processes just do not move that fast. typically it takes 3-6 months following an exposure for warts to become apparent on examination. Our usual advice is that if there is no visible recurrence 3 months following resolution/removal of warts, that persons should consider themselves no longer infections. In your case, there has already been some non penetrative contact and you have been aggressively treated.
Avatar n tn Have had flat warts on my arms for over 6 years and would like to know how long it takes before they leave This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/240327'>flat warts on my face</a>.
Avatar f tn had the surgery and he left 4 obvious warts . I was pissed!! went back 3 weeks later for a follow up.warts had already started to return. he said he needed to do surgery again because I had something aggressive there. I read that HPV 6 and 11 cause most warts and really ever cause any other problems? Even with insurance surgery is expensive and after He missed warts I didnt trust Him. I went to planned Parenthood and Im on week 3 of Aldara.
