A lot of people are faced with suchtrouble, like warts. At first glance they are all the same - well, wart, what's special about it? But in fact there are several varieties of warts, the treatment of which is also different. Therefore, first of all, contact a dermatologist, who will examine your wart and determine exactly what kind of disease it belongs to. The same doctor quickly and without a trace will remove the wart and prescribe antiviral drugs that will destroy the human papilloma virus, which, in fact, leads to the appearance of warts. Although it is worth noting that from warts in most cases it is possible to get rid without surgery - with the help of traditional medicine. But let's talk about everything in order.
Varieties of warts
First, let's try to figure it out,what kinds of warts exist. in most cases, to understand with what wart you are dealing with, it is not so difficult if you carefully examine it. But let's talk about everything in order:
- Wart Common
The most common type is, of course,an ordinary wart, because it occurs in more than 80% of all cases. This wart is a normal benign neoplasm on the skin, not too large in size - most often its diameter does not exceed one centimeter. It looks like a new tumor, like a dense skin tumor, its boundaries are clearly marked, and the surface is very uneven. These warts always have a rounded shape, and the color is from yellow to dark brown. In some cases, the color may be so dark brown that the growth appears almost black. However, this color of the neoplasm is extremely rare. If the wart begins to change its color towards pink, immediately contact a dermatologist-there is a risk of a benign tumor degenerating into a malignant tumor. Most often such warts are chosen such places as elbows, knees, fingers, scalp, corners of the lips. By the way, doctors note the fact that most of the warts are located on those parts of the skin that were previously injured. For example, on your knees. Well, which of the adults compare the appearance of warts on the knee with repeated falls on these in childhood? In most cases, such warts persist on the skin throughout the life of a person. Of course, in the event that a person does not treat this wart. Self-usual warts disappear very rarely, so this is not even worth hoping for. And what's the point? Even with self-treatment you will get rid of the wart in just a couple of months, not to mention the medical intervention.
- Plantar Warts
Plantar neoplasm is, in its essence,the same usual warts, but located on the sole, as the name implies. In fact, they also have an oval convex shape, but due to the fact that they are constantly subjected to pressure of the entire body weight, the plantar warts very quickly become flat and the skin around them becomes cornified. By the way, the appearance of plantar warts is very reminiscent of calluses - very often people confuse and try to cut them. And they realize that they do not have corn in front of them only when they find out that the blood does not flow from the top of the built-up edge, but a clear liquid. Incidentally, such an attempt to cut the plantar wart can end very sadly - the degeneration of a benign neoplasm into a malignant one. The color of the plantar warts also varies from light to dark shades of brown to light. The keratinized skin around the wart also has a much darker pigmentation than the rest. The plantar wart is insidious also by the fact that in addition to the aesthetic aspect there is a physical one - as it grows, painful sensations appear all the time while walking.
- Pointed warts
Slightly less common in people are pointedwarts, which are also often called genital warts. In fact, these warts are nothing more than fibroepithelial neoplasms. Pointed warts resemble knots with a sharp tip, both single and connected. If the treatment of these warts does not begin in time, they grow very much - the picture is not for the faint-hearted. Such warts are located most often on the inner surface of the thighs, shoulders, in the armpits, on the mucous membranes of the genital organs and the oral cavity. Depending on the location of the pointed warts, they can have both white and red color. By the way, red warts bleed very easily - try not to injure them. Firstly, it is very painful, because the warts are very sensitive, and secondly, the blood is not so easy to stop.
- Threadlike warts
The most unusual type of warts is wartsThreadlike. Such a name they received because of their shape - very oblong and narrow. Such warts are located exclusively on the face - most often on the eyebrows and lips. Although very rarely they can be observed on the neck. In addition to its shape, these warts are no longer remarkable - they have a brown color.
- Flat warts
Flat neoplasms also look veryunusually - they resemble flat knots, absolutely smooth to the touch. Such neoplasms have a brownish color and are formed only on the face - on the cheeks or eyelids. Incidentally, a very interesting fact is that it is quite difficult for an adult to find such a wart, since they develop mainly on the skin of a child.
Medical removal of warts
The easiest way to get rid of warts is to go to the doctor. In the arsenal of modern medicine there are many effective ways that will allow you to think about forgetting a wart.
- Laser Wart Removal
The most popular method for todayremoval of warts - laser beam. The procedure is almost painless, takes only a few minutes. In addition, the laser provides complete sterility during the procedure, so that the healing process proceeds very quickly, without complications and pain. And there is no need for any special care during the healing period. After the place of removal is completely healed, most likely, you will not even have a trace. Maximum - a small depression, almost invisible to others.
In the removal of warts by high-frequency current there isa number of its advantages. First, the current cauterizes the vessels that feed the wart, so removal will be virtually bloodless. Secondly, the probability is reduced that the neoplasm is formed repeatedly, as the access of the papilloma virus to healthy tissues is blocked. But there are several negative points. The very procedure of removing warts can cause painful sensations, and in place of the removed neoplasm a scar is very often formed. Therefore, if the wart is in the open parts of the body, it is better to give preference to a different method of removal.
Some doctors still useremoval of warts liquid nitrogen. This method has a number of advantages - it is completely painless, there is no blood at all, and traces on the skin do not remain. But this is - ideally. In practice, the situation is slightly different - it is very difficult to control the depth of nitrogen exposure to the wart, and only a truly experienced physician can do this. Otherwise, if the freezing is not deep enough, the procedure must be repeated again. And if it is too deep - there is a high probability that healthy layers of skin will damage. And to avoid the appearance of scars you simply will not succeed, no matter how carefully you care for the wound.
- Surgical removal
Surgical excision of benignneoplasms, regardless of their type, doctors in our time already almost do not, which, incidentally, is not surprising. If the neoplasm is excised with a scalpel, it will not be possible to do without stitching. Accordingly, you will have a scar on your skin. In addition, do not forget that the procedure is quite traumatic, there is a lot of blood. So, the risk of infection of the wound is very high, and care for it is needed very, very carefully.
Folk recipes for wart removal
If you are not ready for medical removalwarts, you can try to get rid of them at home, with the help of traditional medicine. But remember two very important things: first, you need to go to the doctor anyway, at least to make sure that the neoplasm is really benign, and you can not do without antiviral treatment if you do not want the appearance of new warts. Secondly, in no case do not apply any prescriptions of traditional medicine for the treatment of children of pregnant women - they do not need experiments.
Peel several cloves of garlic, skipthem through garlic or mash in a mortar, add a little bit of any vegetable oil and stir. The resulting mass is applied to the area of growth, top cover with a small amount of polyethylene film and leave for about 20 minutes. Normally, you should feel a slight burning sensation, but if the discomfort becomes too strong, rinse the garlic earlier. After the skin on the wart dries, lubricate it with baby cream. If the size of the lesion is not very large, do the procedure every other day. Otherwise, every evening. After about a week and a half you will notice the first results, and somewhere in a month you do not remember about the wart.
A third of a small head of onions peelfrom the husks, finely chopped and placed in a glass plate, pour apple cider vinegar so that the whole onion was covered with liquid. Leave it for about three hours - eventually the onion should become soft. After this, strain the onion, pound it and put it on the wart, bandage it and leave it for two hours. You will not feel any unpleasant sensations at all, but you need to follow the time, otherwise the inflammatory process may begin. Rinse skin with warm water and grease with any vegetable oil. Repeat the procedure every evening, if you want to two months later about the wart did not even remind.
- Laundry soap
Another very effective way to removewarts - laundry soap. And for the treatment you need only the simplest soap, without any perfumes. Wipe the soap on a small grater - you need five tablespoons. Then pour it with apple cider vinegar, on slow fire bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Turn off the fire and transfer the resulting mass to a glass jar with a lid. Apply a thick layer of soapy mass onto the wart, place a small gauze pad on top, and place a plastic wrap on top, fix it with a stick-plaster. Such a compress should remain on the wart for at least three to five hours, so it is most convenient to do it in the evening, when you are in no hurry. Whichever way you can remove warts, you remember that the healthy skin around the wart is sensitive and highly undesirable, so that a ready-made remedy comes to it. You can avoid this by protecting the skin. The simplest and fastest option is Vaseline or any fat cream. Just apply a thick layer on the skin around the lesion. With the second method it is necessary to tinker, but it is much more reliable. Take a small piece of sticking plaster, cut through it such a hole, so that a wart crawled through it and stick it tightly. Everything, the skin is protected. By the way, if you buy a hypoallergenic adhesive plaster, it will not need to be changed every day, while a normal one can cause an allergic reaction. And the last thing I would like to warn about - if within two months you did not manage to get rid of the neoplasm on your own, then you should not experiment. Go to a dermatologist!
