What is the best treatment for hairy leukoplakia? Evidence-Based Answer: Topical podophyllin 25% resin alone, podophyllin with acyclovir 5% cream, and podophyllin with penciclovir 1% cream are all effective in treating oral hairy leukoplakia (OHL). Podophyllin with acyclovir may have a better resolution rate than podophyllin alone. No significant differences have been noted in rates of recurrence (SOR: B, 2 small RCTs).
