Sinecatechins Ointment Side Effects
I am using veregen (sinecatechins) for EGW. Am I supposed to clean off all the white wax between days of applications - and how? It is hard to remove.
Veregen (sinecatechins): Not being preachy but just sayin' if you ever have questions about your medications, ask your prescribing doctor & dispensing pharmacist. Failing that, there's always HealthTap, right? So check out http://www.drugs.com/veregen.html for info. Specifically, it states "Do not wash off the ointment before applying your next dose. Reapply the ointment after you swim, bathe, or shower." Hope this helps! ...Read more
Is Veregen (sinecatechins) cream appropriate to use even when gen.warts are gone(removed with radio waves) or it is used only when there are still existing warts?
For treating warts: No point in using this $1000 ointment if you have no warts. If you do have warts there are several treatments, none of them as effective as we would like. The only prevention is the vaccine. This does not help get rid of existing warts. You may wish to get the shot to protect you from other genital wart viruses not already in your skin. ...Read more
Using Veregen (sinecatechins) for a std, had TCA treatment while using cream. Now looks white and scabby, thick and won't come off. Should I be worried?

I had condiloma, removed them with radio waves. My gyn.suggested that I now use Veregen (sinecatechins) TO PREVENT warts to appear again. Should I buy this medicine?
NO: NO! It is to treat warts. NOT TO PREVENT THEM! Costs $1000!!!!!!!!!!!We have no med to prevent warts. Imiquimod cream (Aldara) 5% may be best treatment with least chance of recurrence. I often use combinations of treatments. Your GYN must have received samples with glowing claims but no comparison with other treatments and no mention of cost. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Do not scrub it: See a plastic dermatologist or plastics specialist, and never use it again on or near face. See prior answers about this topic. A caution and comment about the fact that you mentioned an ointment. How potent a topical steroid is has an enormous amount to do with if it's in cream form (milder) or ointment form (much more potent); if use occlusive dressing over it, then ten times more potent. ...Read more
2nd strongest: Mometasone is in 2nd strongest class out of 7 levels of topical steroids. Use sparingly and for shortest time possible. Can cause thinning of your skin, sometimes redness and irritation [sensitized skin]. Kids may absorb more so be very careful if used chronically [can effect their whole body]/. ...Read more
Yes: Depends on how much you swallowed. The topicals are at a much higher strength and cause significant problems if swallowed. ...Read more
