Various nipple formations appear across the arms and legs at all ages, which are aesthetically disturbing and can also be painful.
Treatment with so-called keratolytics is successful and affordable.
From 40 to 70 percent, smaller warts can regrow and disappear spontaneously during the first two years without any treatment, especially in children. Today, the treatment of warts is most often used to freeze infected cells with liquid nitrogen, which has a temperature of about –200 degrees Fahrenheit and cause frostbite of these cells, which then fall off. The downside of such treatment is that major nipple surgery should be performed several times (approximately every two to four weeks) resulting in scars and hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation at the site of treatment. The downside is that the process is quite painful. The doctor performs it on an outpatient basis. Surgical treatment is increasingly discontinued.
What are Keratolithics? These include salicylic acid, urea, lactic acid in certain concentrations, obtained from pharmacies, usually by prescription.
Treatment with so-called keratolytics, which soften and exfoliate the corneal layer, is also successful and affordable. These include salicylic acid, urea, lactic acid in certain concentrations obtained from prescription pharmacies or non-prescription commercial preparations. Additionally, different baths and occlusions are used. Unfortunately, keratolytics are only moderately effective and often do not completely remove larger warts so that they can grow back again.
Lasers and radio frequency
In more persistent cases, the successful treatment with topical cytostatic 5-fluorouracil in combination with keratolytics is available from prescription pharmacies in EU countries, but has not yet been done in Slovenia. Laser and radio frequency treatment is also successful, but for now, the service is only self-pays and requires highly skilled staff. *** PPS1: Nipples often disappear on their own, especially in children. PPS2: Treatment with so-called keratolytics is successful and affordable. IMPORTANT: Lasers and radio frequency treatments are successful, but for now the service is only self-paying.
