WART TREATMENT

WART TREATMENT WITH LASER (GENITAL WART TREATMENT)

Vaporization of wart tissue with fractional carbon dioxide laser is an extremely effective, successful treatment option with a low recurrence rate. The effect of laser beams on vaporizing the tissue with HPV is used. Local anesthesia may be required before the procedure. If genital warts are very common and there are no suitable conditions for local anesthesia, the procedure can be performed with general anesthesia. The possibility of scarring or skin discoloration is very low. Despite its advantages, the biggest disadvantage of this method is that the laser device is not available in every clinic due to its high cost.

WART TREATMENT WITH ELECTROCAURY (WART BURNING)

Electrocauterization (also known as wart burning) is a method that works on the principle of destroying warts by burning them with electric current. It is a very good treatment option, especially for small lesions in the external genital area, at the root of the penis, and around the anus. However, its preference may decrease due to the possibility of scar tissue formation. Another disadvantage of this method is the high pain after the procedure and the need for anesthesia for the procedure. Depending on the prevalence of the warts before the procedure, local anesthesia or general anesthesia may be preferred. Warts are burned and destroyed with electrocautery. After the procedure, painkillers and local creams are used.

WART TREATMENT WITH CRYOTHERAPY (WART FREEZING)

Freezing a tissue causes damage to the tissue in the form of a burn effect. According to this logic, spraying liquid nitrogen on warts causes the wart to freeze and the wart tissue to rot. The recurrence rate is no different from other local treatments. Since the destructive effect is limited, more than one session may be needed for the same wart. Side effects of cryotherapy (wart freezing) include blistering of the skin, infection as a result of local tissue destruction with ulceration, and skin discoloration. Rarely, permanent scarring may remain. It can be used safely during pregnancy.

WART TREATMENT WITH MEDICATION

There are many options for treating warts with medications and chemicals. Some of them work by triggering immunity through an immunomodulatory mechanism, and some of them act by destroying the wart.
