Are Genital Warts Clearable?

Whether you choose laser treatment, Podophyllin, or excision, it is important to have your warts properly diagnosed by a doctor. Warts do not need to be biopsyed, but they should be diagnosed professionally. Genital warts are typically firm, with multiple protuberances arising from one stalk. They can range in size from a tiny dot to as large as a fist. In addition, they are easier to treat if discovered early.

Podophyllin

Podophyllin is a natural compound with anti-mitotic properties that destroys warts by inducing tissue necrosis. Podophyllin is the oldest non-surgical EGW treatment. It is sold in compound form as a 10% to 25 percent suspension in tincture of benzoin. For best results, podophyllin should be applied to warts that are smaller than 10 mm2.

It has been used as a topical treatment for warts for many years. Podophyllin 0.5% gel has similar side effects as imiquimod, but it may cause more severe adverse effects. The topical gel can cause irritation to nearby skin. The patient may also experience local erosion and ulceration. There are also reports of scarring from podophyllin treatment. In some cases, podophyllin may be used in combination with cryotherapy. However, this method may be harmful for the baby and may cause a recurrence.

Excision

Surgery is one of several options available to treat genital warts. It may be necessary if other treatments have failed or if there are a large number of warts on a person’s genitals. However, surgery does not treat the human papillomavirus, so warts may grow back if the immune system cannot completely remove the infection. Surgery may also be recommended for women with moderate to severe cervical dysplasia. This procedure removes abnormal cells on the cervix, reducing the risk of developing cervical cancer.

Laser surgery can also be performed to remove genital warts. The surgery is performed using local anesthesia and can be painless, but you should be aware that some scarring will occur. Another option is freezing warts using liquid nitrogen. This method causes the warts to die and fall off. A typical treatment requires one or two visits to a specialist, but it is highly effective and rarely leaves scars.

Laser

Laser treatment for genital warts is a safe and effective procedure that can help cure these skin lesions. This procedure is painless and usually does not require a hospital stay. Most patients can go home the same day, which means that they can resume their normal life as soon as the session is over. In most cases, epithelialisation begins immediately after laser treatment, so the patient can return to their normal activities right away.

Unlike other treatments, laser surgery for genital warts is completely painless and will not leave a scar. The laser light acts on the targeted tissue without damaging the surrounding tissue. It spreads out over the surface of the skin and destroys the wart-causing portion of the tissue. In one to two sessions, laser treatment can eradicate all of the warts. If you have any doubts, you can contact your doctor.

Laser treatment

While electrothermal therapy and cryotherapy can destroy a wart or two, laser treatments are far more effective. Lasers can destroy warts in a single session and patients typically return to their normal activities within 24 hours. After the treatment, epithelialisation will begin and 90% of patients will recover without scarring. Moreover, laser treatments may reduce recurrence rates. These are important factors in deciding whether laser treatment is right for you.

The most important part of laser treatment for genital warts is that it does not damage the superficial skin of the affected area. This is because the laser can reach the roots of the lesions, even if the warts are small. In order to be successful, it must be done under a physician’s supervision and in a clean, sterile environment. In addition, patients should seek medical advice if the warts recur after the laser treatment.

Sinecatechins

This topical ointment contains the ingredient sinecatechins, which are used to make genital warts clear. Applied three times a day for up to 16 weeks, it can effectively clear up the warts. It is important to follow the instructions on the package carefully, since this ointment may stain light-colored or dark-colored clothing. It should be kept in a tightly sealed container when not in use. Do not use it on an open wound or inside the vagina.

Catechins are a naturally occurring chemical compound in green tea leaves. In addition to its antioxidant and immune-enhancing properties, these compounds have several clinical benefits. One of the most popular products that uses sinecatechins is an ointment called Veregen(r), which is marketed for treating external genital warts. The product is available in France, Spain, Austria, Serbia, and the United States, but is not yet available in New Zealand.
