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 more

Just found a bump on the side of my right pinky toe. I also have warts covered with duct tap. How soon before I can distill it from a fungus or wart?

Just found a bump on the side of my right pinky toe. I also have warts covered with duct tap. How soon before I can distill it from a fungus or wart?

Right now: If you have active warts and a new bump on the skin of the toe, chances are you have another wart. Look closely. Do skin lines go through it or around it? If the latter, it's a wart. I don't recommend duct tape. The reason it reacts with warts is the adhesive was not meant for skin contact and causes an allergic reaction. Thus can be severe in some individals. See a podiatrist. ...Read more
