Home Remedies To Get Rid Of Warts On Hand
Home remedies: Soap and water washing. Try applying small amounts of real lemon juice to the spots daily. Short amounts of sun exposure every other day (15 minutes) these are home remedies. For otc remedies try 4-5% benzoyl peroxide. Use a sunscreen that has glycolic acid base. Salicylic acid based products will also be effective. Taking a zinc supplement with a good multiple vitamins is also beneficial. ...Read more
Acne: I recommend st ives facial scrub to patients along with a mild non drying facial soap. The facial scrub deals with the blocked pores and will help smooth the skin (avoid using it like sandpaper). Topical benzyl peroxide works well but can be very drying. Good face makeup ie clinique tend to cause less problems as well. ...Read more
Can't!: Wrinkles on hands can be reduced (but not gotten rid of) by superficial chemical peels, fat grafting, and certain types of careful laser or other energy treatments. The best thing to do for dryness, scaliness, and fine wrinkles associated with eczema is moisturize with a good skin lotion.

Get a real Rx: You deserve 21st-century treatment. I start with topical clindamycin, plus benzoyl peroxide if there aren't a lot of blackheads or a retinoic acid derivative if there are. A woman is often cleared by the oral contraceptive pill. If it's harder to manage, i add a systemic antibiotic appropriate for the person. Dermatologists have the big guns. Good luck. ...Read more
They don't work: The over-the-counter product that works best is benzoyl peroxide. None of the home remedies you'll find online (lemon juice, sleeping with your face smeared with honey) will work, and i suspect some of them are cruel pranks on folks with an already-cruel disease. And no rx of any kind words very fast. Please get with a scientific physician. He/she can help. ...Read more
Extractor: Don't pick skin -especially on nose. A comedone extractor is a wire loop with handle. It can be pressed gently downward to express material from the pore. Do not push aggressively or or drag along skin. ...Read more
Milk of magnesium: Buy the regular strength. Spread over face with fingers or cotton ball or tissue. Let it dry and it creates a mask. It tempers the inflammation of acne. You can put it on in the morning, and once dry, apply make up over it. This is what movie stars do so make up has same appearance all day long. The mask absorbs all the face sweat under the filming lights. Also use at night before bed. ...Read more
Several: There are several different otc products available for this purpose, although am not sure of the efficacy. You can ask your friendly pharmacist, or go online at google and you can have these shipped to you. ...Read more
Liquid nitrogen: While there are a number of treatment options for palmar warts, the most commonly used by me is liquid nitrogen application. It seems most effective as well. Acid application is another method, although, it seems less commonly use. Electrocautery may be tried. Anecdotal use of ranitidine has been described. An over-the-counter histofreeze may work for small solitary lesions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Aspirin duct tape: Wet Aspirin made into paste covered by duct tape changed every few days will slowly decrease the warts. A very good prescription treatmentvis 5 fu cream which slowly will peel away the warts without the discomfort of freezing or burning.I find it far superior to alder which is very irritating. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
