Q Do you know of any effective treatment for solar keratoses, an early form of skin cancer caused by overexposure to the sun? - Mrs S.A. Morrill, Hereford
* Investigate the cause of your CTS. If it’s a symptom of, say, rheumatoid arthritis or hypo/hyperthyroidism, treat that condition first.
* When not a symptom of a disease, it’s likely to be a structural problem, so try osteopathy (see box, p 11).
Not life-threatening, warts are nevertheless annoying, disfiguring and potentially carcinogenic - and on the increase, particularly in patients with AIDS.
