Brief Answer:
Syringoma treatment

Detailed Answer:

Welcome to healthcare magic.

I understand from your query that you are concerned about syringomas on your face.

Syringoma is a small benign tumour derived from the sweat glands in the skin.

They do not respond to oral medications including the ones you have mentioned in your query.

You could get them removed by procedures like radiofrequency ablation and laser ablation.
They also respond to topical atropine ointment. The response, however is not very consistent and could be associated with ocular side effects. Hence it has to be monitored by a dermatologist.

Irrespective of the treatment taken, they tend to recur in a few months time.

Hope this helps you.

If you have any more queries, I will be glad to answer.

Take care.

My mother is 72 years old and had a cardiac ablation performed around February 21 for atrial fibrillation. It became complicated with a nick in her artery and she was hospitalized for 5 days afterward. Since then she has had 5 episodes of a rapid heart rate and has been hospitalized for this 4 additional times, and is currently in the hospital. The doctors want to do another cardiac ablation but I am worried as the doctor told her the reason she was having so many issues now is because the heart is irritated and needs to heal and could take an additional 8 weeks to heal. Wouldn t another procedure irritate it more?

hi, im doing some research for my sister. she is 14 years old and about a year ago she was diagnosed with cardiac ablation for SVT which was removed during surgery. everything went well in surgery except now she is getting episodes with rapid heart rate and chest pains. This isnt triggered by anything in particular. it happens whether she is active or testing. we have talked to several doctors and they have no answers other than it being psychologicaly induced. Please let me know any opinions you may have. thank you
