Wart cream?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know of any treatment for warts from pharmacy's in Bangkok? Lots of small itchy ones around the neck. Mrs went to get something, but came back with anti histamines, antibiotics and saline solution. Alternative things do not seem to do much, although apple cider vinegar helps with itching

Products such a verrumal are basically acids which burn the wart away.  They work very slowly (weeks), and are often unsuccessful.

 

A quicker fix would be freezing them with liquid nitrogen.  The skin clinic at any hospital should be able to do this (as can some beauty clinics).  This would probably only take 1 or 2 sessions a fortnight apart.

 

Given the location, the warts probably could also be removed by laser which is faster still.

 

Of course, there is the possibility that these aren't warts, but something else.  Best to see a dermatologist to get a definitive diagnosis.

That sounds more like skin tags.  

 

I got this zapper thing on eBay fairly cheap, which seems to singe them and after a few days the tags drop off on their own.

Just under $15 with free shipping.  There are videos on YouTube showing people using them with pretty good results.

 

 

In this video she says it hurts, but I thought it was just a mild tingle and had no trouble tolerating it.
