Rwecalcitrant Warts

The patient is an 11 yo girl with difficult-to-treat warts present for 4 years.  Her pediatrician has used cryotherapy, and a vesicant.  They have tried salicylic acid under occlusion for a month and the warts have grown.

The child is very self-conscious.  What would you do?


  1. If she'll let you...candida injections into the two/three biggest warts & f/u in one month

  2. Could also use Veregen as adjunct. Ive seen some good results with this in kids although compliance and coverage can be an issue.
