Answer

Treatment is entirely symptomatic. Hot, wet dressings and anodynes may be used for pain relief. The use of modalities such as enzymes, corticosteroids, antibiotics, vaccines, and anticoagulants has been studied, although none has been proven to hasten the resolution of the pathologic process. The major benefit that the physician can provide is reassurance.
