I've had a plantar's wart on my RT. index finger for over two years, How do I get rid of it?
Thank you ROB 10 points buddy
Asked by Santa Pierri 2 years ago.
I have tried everything, freezing it of 11 times. So much so to the point where they numbed my finger and held they ice spray on for over 3 miinutes. I went to a dermatologist and he prescribed me "Aldira" but that did nothing. I have tried Dr. Scholl's with no luck. I have tried crushing up aspirin and applying it with no luck. They can not cut it out because I run the risk of never having a fingernail grow back correctly. It's very painful as well, if you have any real solutions please help, thank you.

A plantar wart is by definition on the foot. Verruccae (warts) are a viral condition. It may be that your immune system is not up to fighting the pappiloma virus. Have you tried vitamin A therapy. Consult with the dermatologist about an Aquasol A prescription. Start it and have it frozen again. That may slow down it's return. You might also add Carnitine, chelated zinc, vitamine C, and Glutathione (Sucrets Defense.) Answered by Pierre Pase 2 years ago.
As stated you cannot have a plantars wart on the finger, the plantar is the bottom of the foot and when one has a plantars wart it just means wart on the bottom of the foot. Same with plantar fasciitis, that means inflammation of the fascia of the bottom of the foot. I have no clue what you are referring to by ice spray that might be something we are all wondering. I suspect you are not following doctors orders precisely or for the duration recommended. Try following the dermatologists advice a little closer. Answered by Annie Mele 2 years ago.
I had the same problem. I had an old General Practioner who told me to put my first morning saliva on it and then through out the day apply castor oil. I put the oil on a bandaid so it would stay on longer. In a month or two the whole wart fell right out in it's entirety. It looked like a small icecream cone. Try it. It works! Answered by Fransisca Kotowski 2 years ago.
Wouldn't you rather have no finger nail than deal with the pain? Now this is going to sound weird, but I've heard of using duct tape to get rid of them. WebMD.com even recommends this. Answered by Tamatha Smolik 2 years ago.
As warts are caused by very subborn viruses it may take prolonged treatment. Did you use the Aldira for the entire perscribed time? Have you considered switching dermatologists? You are in such agony, I don't see what you have to lose. Answered by Billye Eppley 2 years ago.

Man, I had something similar on my Thumb at the Fingerprint area. Of, course they Burned mine out and it did scar a little. I not sure what you should do, may ask for another opinion, or, I would probably risk the Fingernail, just another one of life's "Battle Scars" to me. Sorry, I not know more. Hey!!! Thumbs up for Duct Tape!!! Heck, it be worth trying, not cost much, you may have a roll already! missS may have another good one. Answered by Lance Stirewalt 2 years ago.
The "ice" spray is not cold enough. Abrade the wart with emery (nail File) board and use liquid nitrogen, this is available from most pharmacies for treating warts. Answered by Marjorie Manke 2 years ago.
Did you have a toe transplanted to your hand, since plantar refers the bottom of the feet. You have been wasting your time and money. Go to a surgeon and have it burned or frozen off. Answered by Renea Dembo 2 years ago.
Why do you need a certain amount of thiamine and riboflavin in your diet every day, but not vitamin A & D?
Asked by Annelle Flinders 2 years ago.
Thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), the rest of the B vitamins and vitamin C are not stored in the body. They need to be 'replenished' every day. Vitamin A (retinol), vitamin D (calcitriol) along with vitamin E (ergocalciferol) and vitamin K (phytonadione) are 'fat soluble' vitamins and can be stored, to some degree, in the body. While these vitamins need to be replaced, the body can draw from these stores within the body. EDIT: Doc J is correct, I humbly stand, partially corrected. Busy day, sorry. Vitamin E is d-alpha-tocopherol. From a Pharmaceutical standpoint, phytonadione (Mephyton) is the tablet form of vitamin K and Aqua-Mephyton is the injectable form. Rocaltrol (calcitriol) and Drisdol (ergocalciferol) are the oral forms of vitamin D. Aquasol E is the oral form of vitamin E. Aquasol A is the oral form of vitamin A. Answered by Cecily Rappa 2 years ago.
Hi Claudia. ... because thiamine and riboflavin are NOT STORED in any significant amounts in the body. A and D, on the other hand, are stored in the body - thus a DAILY supply is not an absolute requirement. Best wishes and good luck. p.s. I feel I must correct some of the absolutely incorrect information provided by the 'pharmacist'. First, Calcitriol is 1,25 dihydroxyvitamin D - the active, hormonal form that is made from Vitamin D (cholecalciferol). Second, ergocalciferol is NOT vitamin E, it is the plant-based form of vitamin D. Next, vitamin E consists of four different forms of Tocopherols and 4 forms of Tocotrienols (it is NOT ergocalciferol, as noted above). Finally, Vitamin K is either phylloquinone, which is derived from green plants, or menaquinones, which are synthesized by bacteria. There is also menadione - a man-made, synthetic form of vitamin K. Oh, one more point. Vitamin A exists in three different chemical forms in the body: retinol, retinal, and retinoic acid. Answered by Morgan Silha 2 years ago.
One cannot generalize, for example B12 is a B vitamin and water soluble but stored for months in the liver. Vitamin K is produced by bacteria in the gut so is less essential in the diet. Other than that, the reasons given above are correct. Answered by Susanne Bucanan 2 years ago.
You are sadly mistaken--an insufficiency of either one, and certainly of both, is a virtual guarantee of bad health. A can be abused by doses that are too massive. D3 is not retained by the body, is flushed out all the time, and must be taken daily in substantial doses if you get little sun or have certain skin criteria. Please Google Vitamin A and Vitamin D3 and get some information before you assume anything or ask any more questions. Answered by Natalie Nowicki 2 years ago.
