There is no treatment for anal warts that will work 100% of the time and be assured that it will not come back. There are a number of destructive techniques that can be used, including electrocautery and laser removal, but recurrence is still possible.

PDT is a new treatment that is promising, but is also not guaranteed to eradicate the warts without recurrence. I cannot find a practitioner in Merces or Atwater that offers this service. The closest that I can find is a Dermatologist in Fresno. Her name is***** and her phone number is(###) ###-####

I had call dr Kathleen behr, and he said he can't accept new patients now! What I should do? I don't wanna recurrent again and again and do surgery again again
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 1 year ago.

It would be fine to use one of the other interventions that I noted above. It would be appropriate to be seen by a local Dermatologist or Proctologist. If your local doctor thinks that PDT would be appropriate, then your local doctor may be able to contact Dr. Behr to request an appointment. A call from a doctor may be able to get an appointment, even when the practice is otherwise closed to new patients.

Do you have a photo of the wart ?

I would like to see if it is a skin tag or a viral HPV wart .

Is it possible for you to send me a photo.There are many immunological treatments available to treat warts from the root level.

Do let me know. Thanks
