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 2-3 applications, ask your doctor about alternative treatments. Most treatments work about 70% of the time, and change is often necessary. ...Read more

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
