The SGOT and SGPT are chemicals that is made almost exclusively by liver cells. When the liver is irritated or inflamed it can leak SGOT and SGPT into the serum where it can be measured. Your SGOT and SGPT are elevated and it may mean there is on-going inflammation or damage to your liver. On some occasions, individuals run mild elevations of their liver enzymes for years and we never find a cause and we never see evidence of significant problems to the liver.

Our jobs as liver specialists is to find out what is causing the liver inflammation/damage. Once we figure that out, we can decide what we need to do about it. We look for common causes first like alcohol or other medications, excess fat in the liver and hepatitis B and C. We than look for more unusual or exotic causes. I am pleased you will be seeing a specialist to sort this out.

I'm going to use this entry to keep track of what I am hearing might help me. Will add to it periodically. If you know of anything please suggest

I take a Centrum high potency multivitamin every day. It says A to Zinc and it seems to be covering almost 100% of what I need.

I do want to increase folate / folic acid but I'm not sure if too much of that is healthy

I am going to start taking an aspirin every day

Somewhere I read that sugar intake affects your immune system. I think I need to cut that out

Warts are small benign growths on the skin, caused by a variety of related, slow-acting viruses HPV (human papilloma virus). There are at least sixty known types of HPV. Warts may appear singly or in clusters. We will talk about three types of warts: Common warts, Plantar warts, and genital warts.

Common warts can be found anywhere on the body, but are most common on the hands, fingers elbows, forearms, knees, face, and the skin around the nails. Most often, they occur on skin that is expose to constant friction, trauma, or abrasion. They can also occur on the larynx (the voice box) and cause hoarseness. Common warts may be flat or raised, dry or moist, and have a rough and pitted surface that is either the same color as or slightly darker than the surrounding skin.

They can be as small as a pinhead or as large as small bean. Highly contagious, the virus that causes common warts is acquired through breaks in the skin. Common warts can spread if they picked, trimmed, bitten or touched, Warts on the face can spread as a result of shaving.

Common warts typically do not cause pain or itching.

Plantar warts occur on the sales of the feet and the underside of the toes. They are bumpy white growths that may resemble calluses, except that they can be tender to the touch and often bleed if the surface is trimmed. They also often have an identifiable hard center. Plantar warts do not tend to spread to other parts of the body.

Genital warts soft, moist growths found in and around the vagina, anus, penis, groin, and/or scrotum. In men, they can grow in the urethra as well. They are usually pink or red in color and resemble tiny heads of cauliflower. Genital warts most often occur in clusters, but they can appear singly as well. They are transmitted through vaginal, oral, or anal intercourse, and are highly contagious. Because the warts do not usually appear until three months or more after an individual becomes infected with the HPV that causes them, the virus can be spread before the carrier is even aware that he or she has it. Although genital warts are not cancerous, they appear to cause changes in the cervix that may be a precursor of cervical cancer. An infant born to a mother with genital warts may contract the virus. If you have genital warts, you are not alone. Between the start of the “sexual revolution” in the sixties and the late eighties, reported occurrences of these warts increased tenfold. By 1990, one million cases a year were being reported in the United States alone.

Am I making this worse? Should I be using gloves when I apply the corn starch or when I use soap and wash that area? Could that be making it worse?

A wart is a skin tumor caused by caused by the human papilloma wart virus (HPV virus). Warts are benign tumors that appear as small, circumscribed tumors of the outer layer of the skin. They can be either flat or elevated and can occur anywhere on the human body. Hands and fingers are pretty common sites, but they can appear on the face and genital areas also Warts are often painful, unsightly and embarrassing. This article examines various methods of wart removal.

Treatment of Warts
Treating warts reduces the chances of spreading to other areas of the body and to other people. But it has to be kept in mind that wart removal in any location may be difficult and there are fair chances of them re-appearing following any treatment.

There are hosts of ways to treat warts ranging from over the counter medicines to surgery. One major point to be remembered is that treatment of warts on normal skin areas like hands and feet are entirely different from treatment of warts in the genital areas. It is definitely advisable to treat the genital warts by a registered doctor.

Topical applications: One of the common methods of treating warts is to apply topical ointment/creams and sprays which are easily available. The biggest advantage of these creams and sprays is that patients can use them in the privacy of their homes. These topical creams contain certain chemicals and acids which attack the human papilloma virus, the cause of warts.

Blistering agents: Another method of treating warts is by using blistering agents such as podophyllin or burning off the warts using potent acids like bichloroaceticacid or trichloroacetic acid. But these chemicals can irritate and burn if they accidentally happen to touch the normal skin. Hence it would be a good idea to take the help of a trained doctor while applying these chemicals.

Another common method for removal of warts is to apply the chemical cantharidin on the affected area. It is covered by a bandage. After a few hours, the patient may experience pain and blistering of the wart. The bandage is removed after 24hrs. The dead skin will be removed later.

Salicylic Acid: Warts can also be treated by applying salicylic acid. It has to be applied everyday for many weeks to produce results. Applying the acid on damp skin is advisable as it helps the acid to penetrate deeply. A pumice stone can be used to file away the dead surface of the warts.

Duct tape: Duct tape is also widely used in the removal of warts. Warts can be covered with duct tape for up to a week. This produces irritation to the wart and the skin around it causing the body to attack it. After a week, the tape can be removed. Soak the wart in water and rub it with a pumice stone or an emery board.

Cryotherapy: Another treatment called cryotherapy uses liquid nitrogen to freeze the wart. It does cause some discomfort and the treatment may last up to 3-4 weeks. This method of wart removal has a fairly high success rate and reduces chances of scarring.

Laser removal of warts: Warts can also be removed by laser surgery where a stream of laser light is directed at the infected site. But this treatment can be painful and may also leave a scar.

Cauterization: Electro-cauterization is a method where in a heated electric needle is applied to the growth, thereby destroying the wart. This treatment is also very painful and can leave a scar.

Surgery: The doctor may also treat the wart by surgical excision. Here, the area is injected with Lidocaine to numb it and then the wart is removed by cutting out the infected area. Not only is it painful but it may leave a scar also.

Removal of genital warts
Treatment of warts in the genitals requires more care and caution. Removal of genital warts needs medical supervision. Warts may be treated with podophyllin, or may be frozen with liquid nitrogen. A method called Loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) wherein a sharp instrument shaped like a loop is passed under the wart, cutting it out of the skin. Alternatively, laser surgery is also used. A chemical called Interferon is also injected into the warts. This chemical helps the body’s immune system fight the virus but this treatment is pretty expensive and the effectiveness of this method is only 50%.

Home remedies for removal of warts
Sometimes, it may so happen that the best of the medicines don’t work while some simple home remedies are effective. Given below are a few simple solutions:

Apply vitamin E oil to the surrounding areas and then place a clove of crushed raw garlic on the wart and cover it with an adhesive tape. A blister is formed and the wart usually falls off within a week.

Cover onion slices with salt and leave overnight. Apply the resulting juice to the affected area till the warts disappear.

Apply the milky juice from the stems of figs and leaves. Alternatively, the juice of cauliflower, lime, onion and green papaya are also effective. Apply them 2-3 times a day.

Castor oil can also be applied. Rubbing a piece of fresh pineapple or raw potato or radish peels will also help.

Soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and stick it on to the wart with a band aid. Leave on for 15 minutes, wash off and dry.

Make a thick of aspirin and water, apply on the wart and cover it. Do it 2-3 times a day. Mix baking soda in water and rub on wart 2-3 times a day.

Whatever the form of treatment be, it is very necessary to stay the course. Do not give up as home remedies may take weeks, even months to show results.

Preventing warts

Warts are contagious and can easily spread from one areas of the body to another through scratching, picking at it or any form of skin contact. They can also spread from person to person if there are any cuts and scrapes in the skin. Genital warts may be passed on through close physical contact. So it is better to prevent the infection by following a few simple guidelines regarding personal hygiene.

It is always better to wear footwear in the shower/locker room of the gym/pool. Persons with wart should not share their towel, pillows, bed, shoes, etc. The bathrooms must be thoroughly disinfected after use by an infected person. Treat all the warts in the given area so that they do not spread. Shaving will also spread the virus, hence it is better to stop shaving till the area is cleared of warts.

Article 2

Fresh Aloe vera juice is applied directly to dissolve warts and tone the skin.
Proteolytic Enzymes: Papaya (papain), Pineapple (bromelain), banana peel and figs contain enzymes that digest and dissolve warts in a safe manner.
The fresh plant, sap (figs) or concentrate (papain) can be applied; any of these can be taped to the skin for several hours.
Milkweed a weed that is wide spread across North America; the fresh milky sap of the leaf or stem is applied directly to warts once a day. Usually works dramatically; non-irritating, does not affect normal skin.
Increase the amount of sulfur-containing amino acids in your diet by eating more asparagus, citrus fruits, eggs, garlic, and onions.


Well I have no intention of using duct tape on my genitals but I am going to research a bit more on these home remedies.

Would you?

There is a guy I met online. He's the one who gave me HPV. The thing is I could of very well gotten it from before, but I was young and dumb and he told me that it was a skin tag wart and not genital warts. Yeah so I am stupid but since then there are 8 women who have been infected with HPV that he has been with. I never contacted them because I felt like it was my own fault, but he is also into guys and I wonder with my genital warts that have never gone away, weekly acid treatments and now no longer being able to hold a job outside of the house because I have to keep up with doc appts and healing between treatments, do you think I should just out him to the world?

Isn't there a law on someone carrying a sexually transmitted disease and infecting people. He can't play dumb for that long when all his ex girlfriends end up like this
