Treatment options

  • 12% salicylic acid gel AAA twice weekly as needed (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16428156)
  • 25% salicylic acid gel AAA daily prn disp 30 g (give 3 week trial) **more effective in my experience**
  • Liquid nitrogen for tx-resistant lesions--beware of risk of scarring
