Warts and molluscum contagiosum are common viral eruptions that are a nuisance but can spread if not treated.
They are also resistant to common therapies, leading to multiple visits and frustration. At Advanced Dermatology we often use methods not used by other dermatology offices. Our mainstay of treatments for warts are injections of either candida antigen (yeast extract) or bleomycin (chemotherapy drug).
We have chosen these methods because they usually work with fewer treatments and have better rates of both clearance and recurrence than the more commonly used method of cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen). Candida injections stimulate your body’s immune system to fight off the wart virus. Although it does take 1-4 treatments, it works 80% of the time and has a recurrence rate of only 11%.
