Hey, I’d promised last December to update how my toe was progressing, after having a series of injections of candida into a wart that was really irritating me. So, it is now the end of April, and I can report that after seven injections, the result is: no change. Still, during the months of the treatments, my toe was at least not in pain, indeed the wart was usually kind of dried out and seemed often to be within a breath of its life. But as of this week we had to discontinue treatment because it just hasn’t produced a result.
The pattern was that in the week after the injection the treatment would be working, and in the second week the wart would appear to be drying out, but in the third week it would simply revive. I suspect if I’d gone every two weeks instead of every three, it may have worked, but that is not advised.
I’m trying some herbal stuff now — which the doctor kindly suggested herself — which seems to basically be some onions or other acidic plants, mixed together into a concoction that, well, probably doesn’t do anything but cause pain when it is soaked into a bandaid and applied. I should not complain, because as far as ailments go this is about as minor as you can hope for, but, I resent the effort the wart puts me through, and the terror that it could spread. It’s rather Middle East that way.
