question of treatment
Jul 10, 2005

I am positive and I also have HPV. For a few months now I have had a wart, in the corner of my lip. Small but my BF noticed it the other day. How can treat it effectively. I have had it frozen 3X and it is not working. Can I use the conmpound W freezing on my own. Please help.

Response from Dr. Wohl

If possible, I would see a dermatologist and ask whether the lesion can be surgically removed as freezing with liquid nitrogen is not working. Aldara cream is another topical treatment that could be tried if surgery is not recommended at this time or risks disfigurement.
