Sir,
The patient refused the surgery and we recommended him resorcinol 30% in vaseline, vitamin C high doses orally (2g/day) and a two-month treatment with Sultametoxazol 4cp/day (Biseptol, Cotrimoxazol) plus Rifampicine 300 mg/ day, with very good results (as seen in the picture).
Unfortunatly we were obliged to stop the systemic medication due to the gastro-intestinal side effects, although the laboratory investigations were all within normal limits.
