Dr.tiwari :

Hello,

Dr.tiwari :

If you have already used the frozen method & if it was not effective then you may use podoflox solution in gel or cream form & in concentration of .15%.It should be used for two times a day for three days.

Dr.tiwari :

Hope this will help you.

Dr.tiwari :

Let me know if you have any query.

Customer:

That's all?

Customer:

Do you mean Podofilox?

Dr.tiwari :

Except it the other treatment which can be used is electrocautery.But that is bit painful.

Dr.tiwari :

Yes.

Dr.tiwari :

Are you there?

Customer:

Do you need an Rx for podofilox?

Dr.tiwari :

No,You should have it on prescription.

Customer:

So I do need a prescription?

Dr.tiwari :

Yes,But you may use it at home as per given directions.

Dr.tiwari :

Are you there?

Dr.tiwari :

If you are satisfied with my answer then please PRESS GREEN ACCEPT.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
