Q: How are warts treated in China?

I have a very persistent wart on one of my fingers, which I had treated back in the States, but, most likely due to all the dirty stuff I'm touching every time I take public transportation, has grown back.

How do they treat warts in China? Do they freeze them?

Obviously your body is too humid. You should wear more clothes.

A liberal dose of Liang cha taken each morning and evening and in addition, sip hot water constantly throughout the day and you'll be as good as gold.

I had one on my neck, and a mole on the center of my back. I went to the local hospital, asked to see a dermatologist and she burned both out with a laser machine, no pain what so ever. Quick and cheap, total cost was less than 60 yuan including a tube of antibiotic cream to prevent infection.

If you're getting warts then it's a genetic issue. Don't blame it on anything you touched in China. I'd imagine the most common, and cheapest way would be to freeze it off.

Warts are caused by a virus called human papillomavirus (HPV). If you remove them, they can reappear some year later.

The longer you wait to treat, the most difficult it is to eradicate it, as they can be deeply rooted in the feet.

Actually, in China, they often don't know what a wart is, and tend to confuse it with a callus or a corn. Once, I have two on my foot, and went to the drugstore and they wanted to prescribe me cream for callus. Also, in drugstore, they don't have products to treat foot or hand warts. The only product they have is a liquid to treat genital warts. The problem with this medicine is that, since it is to treat on genitals, the solution is very light and inefficient to treat foot or hand warts.

The only way to remove them, at least here in China, is either with laser treatment, freezing or burning, but anyway you need to go to a hospital to do it through a dermatologist or a family doctor can also do it.

My family doctor used the azote to freeze it and clean it with a razor in two times.

You can just drop in a fairly big hospital with skin department (not sure skin department is the correct English but forgive me) and ask a doctor.
You'll probably incur some registration fee (5rmb?). Unlike some hospitals in the West which has pretty scary fees just for speaking to a doctor.

Fried with garlic and ginger and served with fava beans and a nice chianti....  you can probably buy them in a Wuhan market.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
