Will tca be as effective as surgery to remove warts?

Will tca be as effective as surgery to remove warts?

Possibly...: Trichloracetic acid (tca) is a potent acid for topical treatment of warts. Like any modality, there are success rate ranges, it's just a matter of trying different modalities until you find one that works well for you. I generally reserve surgical intervention for the most stubborn cases, unless this is just what the patient wants. ...Read more

Dermatologist said gential warts AFTER TCA changed the growth. MyOBGYN said 100% NOT gential warts.What do I tell my boyfriend? Thedocs still disagree

Don't do anything: This is at least your 3rd question on this. Clear answers not available from any forum. But this doesn't matter anyway. Either BP or warts means HPV, which you probably had for months or years, so bf has been repeatedly exposed. Nothing to do now and no point in changing sexual practices now. If he gets visible warts, he should see doctor. Otherwise no implications for his health. No worries! ...Read more

Can a gential wart rapidly change shape, size, color? Flattened out completely then raise again every few days as a reaction TO TCA acid treatment?

Can a gential wart rapidly change  shape, size, color? Flattened out completely then raise again every few days as a reaction TO TCA acid treatment?

Wart treatment: This often occurs during treatment of warts. Expect increased inflammation (e.g. redness, soreness, enlargement) for a couple of days after each TCA treatment. But the overall trend should be shrinking and drying up. If that doesn't seem to be happening after 2 weeks or so, ask your doctor about alternative treatments. Most treatments work about 70% of the time, and change if often necessary. ...Read more

Can a gential wart texturally change from a raised bumpy wart to Verrucae wart in appearance after TCA acid treatment?

Can a gential wart texturally change from a raised bumpy wart to Verrucae wart in appearance after TCA acid treatment?

Wart topical therapy: Sure - you're basically trying to destroy the thing with a chemical compound, so I would expect some morphological changes. What exactly that's going to look like on it's way to final destruction depends on the starting size, how much treatment you give it etc. The thing about warts is they 'hide' from the immune system, so they can be somewhat persistent. Sounds like you're making progress tho. ...Read more

Is it true that surgery is required in order to remove anal warts or can anal warts disappear on their own?

Is it true that surgery is required in order to remove anal warts or can anal warts disappear on their own?

Not always: Almost all warts -- common warts of the hands and feet, genital warts, anal warts -- are eventually cleared by the immune system. They'll probably resolve, but it seems to take longer, often several years, for anal warts. If many warts or especially large ones, infection and other complications are a risk and surgery usually is wise. Just a few warts can be treated by freezing, imiquimod, etc. ...Read more

Try over the counter: treatments first. Most warts will go away on their own. If the one you have is causing problems, try any of the over the counter remedies for warts. Surgery is not usually needed. It can be frozen, if need be. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

should I be worried? im a male and I had the warts removed, new partner and I don't want to hurt her. thank

Use condoms: You can remove the obvious warts with laser/freeze them or burn them with various chemicals. They can also disappear on their own in time. However, this family of viruses is capable of returning anytime and can shed without obvious warts. Condoms can help prevent transmission but is not 100%.It is possible you will never shed virus or have recurrence, but this germ may be with you for life. ...Read more

I have 2 plantar warts on the bottom of my big toe. Is it possible to remove them without having surgery?

Several treatments.: You can try over the counter wart removers, but be careful: 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. ...Read more
