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 This can be quite loud and may be alarming if you haven't been warned. Recurrence rates of warts after laser treatment range between 10% and 40%. Rate of complications or secondary infections after the treatment are comparatively less with laser treatment as there is very less chance of damage to the surrounding tissues. Hope this information helps. Best.
Avatar n tn 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. 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.

Avatar m tn //www.dermatologychannel.net/follicle/folliculitis.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 m tn A doctor said that the red bump is just a scar that has reacted, and it does not turn white with the application of vinegar. Following the removal of that wart, I noticed several small, dark, bumps at a couple of hair follicles in the surrounding area. I didn't think much of them, until, out of paranoia about the red bump, I applied a vinegar soaked cotton ball to the area over night.
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 And based on my last visit to the derm, where I felt dismissed, I went home and took a photo of my legs with the warts visible (they look like goosebumps - but not all over, in scattered areas), and am considering seeing another doc. I'm currently going through 2 yrs of Laser Hair Removal, and about halfway through - I started before I knew I had flat warts, knowing that my skin is very sensitive, and thinking this would be a practical way to end the shaving/irritation/infection issue.
Avatar n tn The pulse dye laser is another technique for removal of a wide range of warts, 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.
Avatar m tn Pain and discomfort is normal after any type of removal surgery, considering they first burned your skin with a laser, THEN used a highly acidic compound on your skin directly after. You shouldn't pick the skin, but let it heal. If you don't mind me asking, you had carbon dioxide laser treatment? I'm considering asking my doctor about this type of treatment for possible urethral warts, but have heard its the most expensive treatment...

Avatar n tn 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. With use of condoms at this time there should be little risk that you will infect your partner. (A 3 week incubation period for development of warts would be unusually fast).
