    Can anyone suggest anything new to try on a patient who has had a verruca since 1996. She has tried: Salicylic acid up to 60%, Cryotherapy - 5 treatments at local hospital, Glutarol, silver nitrate, monochloracetic acid, tea tree oil, duct tape and even banana skins. Would appreciate any help!

    Hello Sueamies,
    If your patient has had a VP for that long without resolution then it could suggest that her immune system is compromised, so you might want to look into that.

    However, you could try needling under local anaesthetic or blunt dissection after an ankle block.

    Hope that helps
