Is vitamin a and/or zinc effective in treating plantar warts?

Are there any vitamins, minerals that can help diminish bone spurs or plantar warts?

Are there any vitamins, minerals that can help diminish bone spurs or plantar warts?

No.: You can try over the counter wart removers, but I've seen them do more harm than good. Other options your doctor might offer include cryotherapy (freezing the wart), electrocautery (burning the wart), laser treatment, or several different topical chemical treatments. If the treatment is typically uncomfortable, your doctor can numb the area before proceeding. Vitamins typically don't help. ...Read more

None. ..: There has been no known "magic" pills, herbs, or foods to suppress H{V (viral) infection. However, healthy lifestyle without overindulgence & obsession will definitely enhance and maximize personal defense mechanism; washing the newly contacted area especially after sex & keeping skin well-ventilated will minimize HPV gaining access to the body to grow. Together, the odd to see warts will be less. ...Read more

Is it reckless to administer Vitamin K by IV if it can be given s/c or IM? Why?

Is it reckless to administer Vitamin K by IV if it can be given s/c or IM? Why?

Yes. IV bad choice.: The oral route and IV route are equally effective at correcting excessive anticoagulation. The IV route carries the risk of anaphylaxis. Therefore the IV route should not be used if the oral route is available. The SC route is NOT as effective as the oral or IV and should not be considered a first line option. ...Read more

Few, Food Better: Vitamins is a big market, very inexpensive, derived from all sorts of otherwise food waste ; non food materials, big business, dependent on public ignorance/fear.

Comparison to fordyce spots/warts/herpes: fordyce spots occur in larger numbers (50-100's) whereas herpes/warts are fewer in number? Is this correct?

Comparison to fordyce spots/warts/herpes: fordyce spots occur in larger numbers (50-100's) whereas herpes/warts are fewer in number? Is this correct?

Partly: It varies. Fordyce spots are visible sebaceous (sweat)glands that are a normal variant. They appear as rice sized tiny papules raised above the surface of the skin. Typically they are very numerous on the scrotum and vulva and less so on the penile shaft. When few in number they can be confused with HPV or warts. You can see pictures of all 3 conditions by going to Google Images. ...Read more
