Answer

Answer

In general, topical therapies are recommended for localized disease (stages IA, IB and IIA), with systemic or combination systemic and topical therapies beginning with stage IIB. Systemic therapies may also be considered in patients with early-stage disease that does not respond to topical treatments. [26, 27, 2]
