Removal of warts, birthmarks and other types of spots.

And from what all these warts, moles, papillomas arise?

Usually, the formations on the skin are of a viral nature. They are caused by the human papilloma virus, more than 100 of them have been isolated. Some people are more susceptible to this virus, some less. Hormonal fluctuations in the body strongly influence its activation. So, the common spots and warts often appear and grow in women during pregnancy and after childbirth, in men after stopping intensive sports. And for those, and for other formations it grows with age. So, if there are many warts and papillomas, the doctor not only removes them, but also prescribes complex antiviral treatment.

Can I touch moles? Can this lead to cancerous degeneration?

Indeed, if moles are constantly injured by clothing or jewelry, if attempts are made to cut them themselves, then they can begin to grow and degenerate into a malignant tumor. Therefore, if something on your skin keeps you all the time, rubs your underwear, gets under the blade during shaving - contact your doctor as soon as possible. Such formations must be deleted.

Removal of warts

Warts are a skin disease characterized by small, non-inflammatory, tumor-like formations. Warts are skin tumors the size of a pinhead (1-2 mm) to 1 cm or more.

What are the types of warts?

Ordinary warts are dense, painless nodules of rounded shape (3-10 mm in diameter) with a rough surface. They are located on the rear of the hands, fingers, face, scalp. There are so-called plantar warts on the soles. They are usually painful and consist of bundles of threadlike papillae, surrounded by a roller of powerful horny layers, resembling corn. The emergence of plantar warts is promoted by constant pressure and friction by shoes.

Flat (juvenile, juvenile) warts are small (0.5-3 mm) nodules of normal skin color or yellowish, rounded or polygonal with a smooth flattened surface that barely protrude above the skin level. They are usually located on the face and back of the hands. Often observed in young people, especially in school children. Another type of warts are genital warts (papillomas, nep. Papiloma). But this is a completely different story. It is dealt with by urologists, gynecologists and venereologists.

How to get rid of warts forever?

Warts are a viral infection. She can be infected again. It can occur with weakened immunity. First you need to assess how much your immune system is weakened and how it can withstand papillomavirus infection. And then remove the warts!

Method of removing warts in folk medicine: drop pipette onto each wart with a solution of glacial acetic acid.
You can also lubricate the warts with castor oil. I tried several times the method of removing warts, by the way the result was visible. Cut the she-grass with scissors, pull it out with the root of their land. Poke the cut off part of the wart and burrow up the root in a very moist place. The wart will disappear in a few days.

There are other methods of wart removal:

  • - Pieces of raw onion soak in vinegar for 2 hours and tied to a wart.
  • - Juice the green raw apples on the wart and allow to dry.
  • - Wipe the warts with honey, sprinkled with honey powder, and bandage overnight.
  • - Lubricate with a slice of lemon. The skin will restore its acidity and the wart will disappear.
  • - Old folk way to reduce warts: Take a "rough" thread - wrap around warts on your finger and cut off the ends (at the rope) - tie the knot in a knot. Then remove and untie digging into the ground (you can in a flower pot), the thread will rot - go away and a wart.
  • - Spread a wart with a clove of garlic several times a day and after a week nothing will happen!

Removing birthmarks

Удаление родинок
Birthmarks (moles) or pigmented nevuses are benign skin formations consisting of pigment cell aggregates (melanocytes). All the birthmarks of the spot combine a characteristic color - from yellow-brown to black, the color is caused by different concentrations of melanin. As a rule, moles are flat or slightly protruding above the skin. The surface of the birthmark can be smooth or rough, sometimes in the form of irregular growths. Some moles are covered with hair.

A common birthmark is a benign congestion of pigment cells that can appear on any part of the body and mucous membranes. As a rule, the mass appearance of moles in a man occurs during puberty. During a life the quantity of birthmarks in the person can essentially vary, increasing or practically coming to naught.

Birthmarks have always been surrounded by a lot of legends and rumors. People have long ago tried to understand why they appear, what they mean and influence somehow the destiny of man. In some peoples, the presence of large birthmarks on the human body was perceived as evidence of his chosenness and suitability to the gods or higher powers. But much more often birthmarks were perceived as a symbol of communication with otherworldly forces or involvement in sorcery and sorcery. Knowingly in the courts of the Inquisition, the body of the next victim was always diligently examined for the presence of birthmarks, which, as a rule, were considered evidence of the connection of the accused with the evil spirit. In those days, for definition of large birthmarks on the body, there was even a widely used term - "the seal of Satan".

Today, the attitude towards birthmarks has changed, they have not been given mystical properties for a long time. Most people get used to birthmarks on their bodies and stop paying attention to them. For some people, the presence of small birthmarks even like it, because a "successful" mole on the face can give a woman a certain charm.

Unfortunately, birthmarks are far from harmless. Scientists all can not unequivocally understand the reasons and mechanisms for the transformation of an innocuous nevus into a deadly melanoma. According to the World Health Organization, melanomas kill almost 50,000 people every year. On a global scale, the figure is not so great, but it is probably not voluntarily to be among those "elected" wishing. Although some are among them simply because of their ignorance.

If the marked changes do not begin to occur with the moles, then it is simply impossible to recognize in advance what is to be turned into melanoma. But there are signs that simply have to make a person alert and seek advice from a dermatologist or dermatologist / oncologist. In the "risk zone" are moles, which are constantly irritated or injured by clothing, shoes, belts, belts, while shaving or combing your hair. It is these moles that have the greatest chance of being transformed into melanoma over time.

If the birthmark begins to change, you can not postpone the visit to the doctor. What to look for first of all:
- the size of the birthmark changes; it began to increase noticeably;
- the structure of the mole is changed, the compaction areas, tubercles, cracks, peeling, crusts appear on it;
- the color of the birthmark changes, it darkens or brightens, stains appear on it;
- a mole inflamed, began to bleed or around her a reddish corolla appeared;
- in the mole there is an itch or burning sensation, touching it became painful.

Often, the person himself regenerates a normal nevus in melanoma. Often, from the moles located on the face or open areas of the body, hairs are pulled out, which is a strong irritant for the birthmark. No less damage is caused by attempts to discolor or deduce the mole itself, cauterizing, pruning or somehow traumatizing it. Do not forget that the mole may be adversely affected by excessive sunbathing, and in particular - abuse of the solarium.

Those who are related to birthmarks on the body with real or ostentatious indifference, it is not superfluous to recall that melanoma, like other malignant formations, is well treatable only at the initial stage of development. When metastases appear, treatment will become complicated, painful, expensive and, unfortunately, not always effective.

Recently, various traditional healers are offering their help in removing moles and treating melanoma more often. The likelihood that they will be able to provide real assistance, as a rule, is incommensurable with the negative consequences that such "treatment" can lead to. At best, the healer patient receives scarring and stains in place of the removed moles, at worst - neglected by melanoma. I do not exclude that among the healers there may be real professionals, but you will agree that the probability of meeting them is extremely small.

I am an adherent of the methods of traditional medicine, but in cases with moles I recommend not to engage in self-medication, do not waste time and money on various healers, and immediately consult a doctor. If necessary, a histological examination will be performed to ensure the maternity of the mole, and the most effective option for its removal is selected. Recently, laser removal of birthmarks has been increasingly used, the advantage of which is relative painlessness, safety and efficacy. In addition, with this method of removal, there are no traces left on the skin, except when moles of considerable size are removed. Naturally, during the rehabilitation period after the removal of the birthmark, it is necessary to strictly follow the prescriptions of the doctor.

Birthmarks are not as harmless as they seem at first glance, that's why they have to be taken seriously, especially since modern medicine can provide effective help if, of course, it is addressed in a timely manner.
