Wart Removal

Postby stellaguppy » Wed, 12 May 2010 8:38 pm

Not sure if this is abit late.

Nitrogen helped with the warts of a friend. However, the warts were very tiny.

However, my daughter's warts were very persistent & large. They were on the feet. We tried everyhing under the sun. The only thing which really helped was going to a Dr Yu, a TCM doctor at Eu Yan Sang @ Plaza Singapura.

Hopefully, this info will be helpful to someone.

my daughter had liquid nitrogen treatment for a wart on the foot at Raffles Hosp - bloody expensive but it seems to have worked.............so far!

If it comes back I might try vinegar, my Mum is a fan of vinegar and reckons it can cure loads of stuff, so there's no harm in trying it (and much cheaper than Raffles which was about $200 per visit :? )

I have had experience with viral warts. Go to the National Skin Centre. Warts are in your skin and kind of like grass, cuttig the leaf is only a temporary fix and the root has to be removed as well.

I ended going for surgery to have the wart cut out. It was on the base of my feet (both of them) but it was gone for good after that. I had a few treatments with liquid nitrogen and holistic treament before that and a self administered wart remover. The warts came back after those treatments because they didn't go deep enough.

Please go see a specialist early. I think it's one of those things that get more difficult to remove the longer you wait. I'm not sure about scarring but I'm sure the specialists will be able to advise you.

No warts?

Postby TomWale » Fri, 08 Oct 2010 10:07 pm

Well, I tried for myself many methods and pieces of advice. All I can say – you should try yourself every one of them. Unfortunately, what’s meat for one is poison for another. I found my way of fighting these ugly warts on one website, http://papillomasfree.com/, but it’s what was best for me. The thing, I really don't think that surgeon intrusion is appropriate in this case...

You can also get liquid wart remover acid, but you must use it 2 times a day until it drops the wart, it can take 30 to 60 days, it is also good and penetrates the root though the virus will still be in the blood, so optimal immune system is needed at all time's to keep it dormant.

There is no real cure other than being healthy and that is not easy with all the crappy fast good. 100% natural foods and no processed food, will improve all the organs of the body. drink plenty of water too

Well at the doctor the only thing they can do is freeze them, which is very painful, but it is very effective.

I would suggest you see a skin specialist. you can try Dr Thirumoorthy from Specialist skin clinic located at Orchard. he's a very patient doctor who would analyze each option for you carefully while you decide which best suits you. but you may also go to the other doctors there.

Do make appointments in advance as the clinic is always packed.

As for the minor scars, if it leaves behind a depression around the affected area then i'd suggest you go for laser treatments to regrow the skin

wart removal

Postby BBCDoc » Sat, 23 Oct 2010 8:50 pm

For removal of non-genital dermatological warts, get yourself some dry ice. Not sure how easy it is to get here, I found it fairly easily when I was living in the US and Japan.

Get a lump of the dry ice and holding it with forceps, press the ice onto a metal surface to create a spike shape. Then push the spike firmly on top of the wart to burn the skin deep beneath the wart. This will hurt, but having the lump into a spike shape reduces the effect on non-wart skin. It also helps if you can trim the wart to a minimal height. Before you start burning it.

You will have to do this a few times, and reshape the dry ice into a spike shape regularly. After probably 6-9 deep burns, it should tingle uncomfortably and over the next few days, will hurt and you should see bleeding below the surface.

If done properly, the cold burn should have killed the infected cells under the wart, and within 2 weeks, you should have wart free skin. The good thing about this method is that it triggers an immune response, to the specific virus, and any other warts caused by that virus subtype should be eliminated. Any remaining warts are caused by another virus subtype and needs to be eliminated in the same way.

Remember, don't do this on your genitals, or other very sensitive skin types (close to the eyes)

Trust me, I'm a doctor
There's always room for one more

Guys, had anyone tried this? What can you tell about this method of warts removal?
