Immunotherapy for resistant warts

+2

If duct tape alone works consistently for warts, most dermatologists may not be as busy. I utilize DPCP immunotherapy in addition to other all modalities available to me, e.g. cryotherapy, paring, topical antiviral creams to treat resistant warts. For patients who have very low threshold for pain, DPCP immunotherapy is even a better option.

Duct tape for warts

+2

There has been some research indicating that application of duct tape to warts over a period of time can eliminate the wart. The tape needs to be worn almost constantly and typically requires several weeks of treatment. I hope this helps.

Each lesion should be removed differently. Most removals of skin tags and moles can be relatively painless. Removal of warts via cryotherapy is painful for a few minutes.

Every Mole which is worrisome enough to be removed SHOULD BE examined under the microscope to make sure it is NOT Cancer

+1
There should be NO pain associated with mole removal. However,due to the epidemic of skin cancers many of which may be masquerading as benign "moles", every mole that is worth getting rid off should NOT be destroyed with either a "nature' or unnatural chemical which destroys the mole or burns / freezes it. Instead, the mole should be painlessly cut off and sent for pathology evaluation. The resultingh wound can be closed with minimal scars by a Plastic surgeon or a surgically trained Dermatologist.

Removal of Moles, Skin Tags and Warts

Most dermatologists would agree that moles should not be destroyed, but removed in a way that allows examination by the pathologist in a lab. The main reason for this is that even the most innocent looking moles can sometimes end up being atypical or cancerous. Removal of moles can be done very simply with a local anesthetic which involves a minimal amount of pain.

Skin tags and warts are best removed by destruction or very minor surgery (no stitches) which also would require a small amount of local anesthetic. I personally do not believe that any of these lesions can be successfully treated with topical products. There are many topical remedies for warts, but they involve numerous treatments, incredible discipline from the patient, a higher risk of recurrence, and often lead to permanent discoloration.

First, moles should never be destroyed in any form or method. Moles should be removed and sent for examination by pathology.

Warts and tags has to be removed or destroyed and that requires a form of local anesthetic, which when injected can be painful for few seconds
