What is the treatment for allergic reaction to liquid nitrogen?

What is the treatment for allergic reaction to liquid nitrogen?

Impossible: You had a burn from the liquid nitrogen which can happen. It is impossible to be allergic to nitrogen. Nitrogen is the predominant element in air so if you were truly allergic, you'd be long dead by now. Scientifically, you can only develop allergies to protein molecules which are organic compounds. Nitrogen is inorganic.

How long after liquid nitrogen treatment on a wart does the wart come off?

How long after liquid nitrogen treatment on a wart does the wart come off?

Layers: It takes several treatments sometimes, because each treatment takes a layer of skin off, and warts have many layers of affected skin, much like an onion, you need to kill off, then remove that layer of skin, to get to the base of the wart, for total removal

I had liquid nitrogen treatment on a warts on my penis, 4 days and the area around my wart is darker the wArt has not changed worred about color?

Recheck with doctor: If the freezing treatment was effective, the warts themselves should turn white then darker like scabs, and in a few days should clear up or fall off. The skin around might change color somewhat as well. But maybe the diagnosis is wrong? If in doubt, contact the doctor or clinic where you were treated.

I got liquid nitrogen treatment for sun spots on my arms about 2 weeks ago my arms have just healed but healed with these pink spots will that go away?

I got liquid nitrogen treatment for sun spots on my arms about 2 weeks ago my arms have just healed but healed with these pink spots will that go away?

Yes: Generally the pink left after initial healing from cryosurgical treatment for sun damage spots will slowly fade over days to a few months, but often on the arms may leave permanent white spots, but hopefully they will heal with a normal skin appearance. Wearing sunscreens over the treated areas may help the cosmetic healing look better when it is done healing.

Blister from freeze: Take a sterile needle or pin, and clean the skin, and then poke the blister and try to push the contents out, without ripping the skin too much. The top skiin is likely already dead and the wart virus is likely not active or alive.

Dr. Treated a sunspot with liquid nitrogen. How successful is this? Is there a chance of scarring? Can I try other remedies if this doesn't work?

Dr. Treated a sunspot with liquid nitrogen. How successful is this? Is there a chance of scarring? Can I try other remedies if this doesn't work?

Can work great. . .: Or it can leave a scar! Liquid nitrogen non-selectively freeze-kills tissue, hopefully only the abnormally-pigmented ones in your "sunspot" case. Lentigos, freckles, and similar sun-induced spots can be treated with liquid n2, laser, ipl, or other methods, but should not be excised (scar). However, all of the previous techniques can leave a scar if overzealously utilized. I would use a ktp laser!
