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.

Sangoku:

Warts are caused by a virus called human papillomavirus (HPV), so nothing to do with genetics.

false. Some people have genetic predispositions for warts. Mostly the common wart which is just a raised dry lump.

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.

Sandnose:

Seriously dude? OK, you get your wumao for the anti-waiguo propaganda shot, but at least tell the truth about China please.

Fact: registration at the hospital is free.

After wait for hours for a perfunctory 1-2 minute consultation you will be directed to the dispensary to buy medication. Some useful, some pointless.

Expect to pay 300-500 for the experience, more if the ubiquitous blood test is ordered.

@wumao2020 most developed countries offer full or partial treatment free of charge and rebates are available for out of pocket expenses if you don't have private medical insurance or don't wish to use it.

@ Sandnose, 

where i am you don't even have to go to a hospital for warts.

Any phramacist can recommend a treatemet, and if it persists, you can go to your GP.

 

or you can find a dermatologist yourself, ot be refferd to a dematologist (by your GP)

 

Going to hospital for a warts consultation (unloess referred and with an apoointment) would be considered a waste of time, as well as colgging the system.

having warts would not be considered an 'accident or emergency'

Yes, same for me. China doesn't have GPs in every community, consultations are monopolised by hospitals. But not so all the cash can go in the pockets of bureaucrats, of course.

Fun fact; I used to train doctors and nurses at the people's hospital. They are all on KPIs to proscribe medication. Meet your 'sales' target a d get commission, [cough] I mean bonus for ensuring the health and well being of the peasantry.

@Sandnose, 

 

here, (some) pharmacists also give flu vaccines before flu season as well as give (minor) medical advice for anything that does not even merit a GP visit.

They can not prescribe any medication - that requires a GP or a doctor.

no drugs are dispensed in hospitals - other than for treatment for patients in hospital.

 

this discourages profiteering by doctors, which would be unethical and could result in being disciplined or even struck-off.
one GP i know avoids, where possible, unnecessary medication, which reduces the over-use and mis-use of anti-biotics.

Anitibiotics are given for everything like lollies. No ID necessary. Nothing could go wrong.

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
