Warts

Are still difficult to treat, but there are some interesting (albeit unlicenced) options of which I hadn’t previously heard:

  • Vitamin D analogues
  • Topical retinoids
  • 5-fluorouracil

On the minus side, however, further studies into duct tape treatment have found it doesn’t work particularly well after all, although it may make the wart soggy and thereby increase the success of other treatment.
