Photodynamic therapy is a treatment used for actinic keratoses and low risk skin cancers. The cosmetic results are excellent with little risk of scarring. A cream is first applied to the area to be treated. A special light or daylight then activates the cream. This treatment kills the abnormal cells in the skin.
Warts and Molluscum Contagiosum
A number of treatment options are available. They include blister-causing chemicals and some allergic-causing chemicals, applied to the wart to inflame and eventually destroy it.
