Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Extraction and laser could be done.

 

Thank you doctor,

Is there any medicine or treatment? And is there any specific food which I should eat or avoid?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

There is no relation with food. Extraction and CO2 (carbondioxide) lasers are the treatment of choice. In extraction, with the help of the needle, the material inside the gland would be extracted. And with CO2 laser they will be burned flat. I hope it helps. If you have any other question, please do not hesitate to contact us.
