Human papillomavirus infection responds well to exposure to chemicals, whose action is directed to the tissue destruction of genital warts.

The solution is applied with an applicator on each of the warts separately. You should care about the safety of the surrounding skin, not to get its necrosis and scarring.
For one treatment is permitted to be lubricated not more than 50 growths, with a total area of not more than 10 cm2. After applying give the drug time to dry.
The course of treatment is 3 days with a single application. Then do a 4-day break. In General, the course will take 5 weeks.
The drug is contraindicated for pregnant women, children, lactating mothers and patients who are already receiving preparations containing podophyllin.
The disadvantages of this method are contact dermatitis, which occurs in approximately 10-15% of patients.
But the most serious complications arise when improper self applied. This multiple ulceration.
Another drug on the basis of acid — Solkoderm. It contains 98% acetic acid, 65% nitric, and oxalic, lactic acid and copper nitrate.
Release form — the solution in ampoules of 0.2 ml. After the application of Solcoderm the skin is painted a yellowish color.

The remaining solution is then removed with talc or sodium bicarbonate. Sometimes there is a need to reprocess the skin after 4 weeks.
In genital warts administered interferon. It is a painful procedure that often requires re-processing or combination with other methods of therapy.
Why is this justified? The use of destructive methods often leads to relapse, and the use of interferon leads to the death of the virus, which actively replicates in the tissues of the warts.
Interferons are antiviral, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory agent.
In addition, they can be applied systemically in severe cases, or led directly into the center. The use of interferon leads to clinical improvement and disappearance of the foci, as evidenced by a decrease in the amount of viral DNA in the tissues of the growths.
