Patient discussion about papillomatosis

Q. I have confluent and reticulated papillomatosis of gourgerot and carteaud.Any treatments? I am currently using antibiotics - tetrasil and have tried anti fungal creams but has still not gone.

A. you have to be patient. anti fungal treatment takes between 2 to 6 weeks. and you have to use the cream as instructed, and the amount it was instructed. if after 4 weeks you don't see even the slightest change- then go back to the Dr. if they said fungal- they might tested it and it came up positive to fungus, but it can also be a false positive.
