There are several treatment options available for common warts. Many people choose to start with over the counter remedies. Unfortunately, very few of these have been proven to work consistently. We offer two different treatment options in office for warts:
- Injection of candida albicans
Cryotherapy is a common treatment used to freeze the wart off. This freezing kills the wart tissue, and it eventually crusts and falls off. It is also thought that it may produce an immune response to help your body get rid of the virus.
Candida albicans injections is another treatment that has been used for many years, oftentimes for warts that have persisted despite previous treatment. Candida albicans is yeast that almost everyone has been exposed to, as it is incredibly common. When injected directly into the skin surrounding the unwanted wart this yeast triggers an immune response from the body. It is theorized that the body finally “recognizes” this intruder and starts fighting to get rid of the wart.
Both of these treatment options have been proven to be safe and effective for unwanted warts. If previous treatments and over the counter remedies have failed it may be time to give us a call.
