Removal of warts, birthmarks and other types of stains.

And from what do all these warts, moles, papillomas come from?

Typically, skin lesions are viral in nature. They are caused by the human papillomavirus, more than 100 have been isolated of its varieties. Some people are more susceptible to this virus, some less. Hormonal fluctuations in the body strongly affect its activation. So, birthmarks and warts often appear and grow in women during pregnancy and after childbirth, in men after the cessation of intense sports. Both those and other entities become larger with age. So, if there are a lot of warts and papillomas, the doctor not only removes them, but also prescribes a comprehensive antiviral treatment.

Can moles be touched? Can this lead to cancerous degeneration?

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

Wart removal

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

What types of warts are there?

Ordinary warts are dense, painless, rounded nodules (3-10 mm in diameter) with a rough surface. They are located on the rear of the hands, fingers, face, scalp. On the soles, so-called plantar warts appear. They are usually painful and consist of bundles of filiform papillae, surrounded by a roller of powerful horny layers, resembling corn. The appearance of plantar warts contributes to the constant pressure and friction of 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, barely protruding above the skin level. They are usually located on the face and rear of the hands. More often observed in young people, especially in schoolchildren. Genital warts (papillomas, nep. "Papilloma") are another type of wart. But this is a completely different story. Urologists, gynecologists and venereologists are engaged in it.

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 evaluate how weak your immune system is and how it can withstand papillomavirus infection. And then remove the warts!

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

There are other methods for removing warts:

  • - Soak slices of raw onions in vinegar for 2 hours and tie to the wart.
  • - Apply the juice of green raw apples to the wart and allow to dry.
  • - Rub the warts with honey, sprinkled with honey powder, and bandage overnight.
  • - Lubricate with a slice of lemon. The skin will regain its acidity and the wart will disappear.
  • - The old folk way of reducing warts: Take a “coarse” thread - wrap around the wart on your finger and cut off the ends (near the rope) - tie the rope into a knot. Then remove and without untying, bury it in the ground (you can in a flower pot), the thread will rot - it will leave and a wart.
  • - Smear the warts with a clove of garlic several times a day and after a week there will be nothing!

Birthmark Removal

Удаление родинок
Birthmarks (moles) or nevus pigmentosa are benign skin lesions consisting of accumulations of pigment cells (melanocytes). All birthmarks are united by a characteristic color - from tan to black, the color is due to 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 in hair.

A common mole is a benign accumulation of pigment cells that can appear on any part of the body and mucous membranes. As a rule, a mass appearance of moles in a person occurs during puberty. Throughout life, the number of birthmarks in a person can vary significantly, increasing or practically disappearing.

Birthmarks have always been surrounded by a mass of legends and rumors. Since ancient times, people have been trying to understand why they appear, what they mean and whether they somehow influence the fate of a person. For some peoples, the presence of large birthmarks on the human body was perceived as evidence of his chosenness and favor with the gods or higher powers. But much more often, birthmarks were perceived as a symbol of communication with otherworldly forces or involvement in witchcraft and sorcery. Not for nothing that the inquisition courts always carefully examined the body of the next victim for birthmarks, which, as a rule, were considered evidence of the accused’s connection with evil spirits. In those days, for the definition of large moles on the body there was even a widely used term - the “seal of Satan”.

Nowadays, the attitude towards moles has changed, they have not been given mystical properties for a long time. Most people get used to birthmarks on their body and stop paying attention to them. Some people even like the presence of small birthmarks, because a “successfully” mole located on the face can give a woman a certain charm.

Unfortunately, moles are far from harmless. Scientists still can not clearly understand the causes and mechanisms of the transformation of a harmless nevus into a deadly melanoma. According to the World Health Organization, melanomas cause the death of nearly 50 thousand people every year. On a global scale, the figure is not so great, but there are probably no volunteers to be among these "chosen" people. Although some are among them simply because of their ignorance.

If noticeable changes do not begin to occur with moles, then it is simply impossible to recognize in advance which one is to become melanoma. But there are signs that are simply obliged to make a person wary and seek the advice of a dermatologist or dermatologist-oncologist. In the "risk zone" are moles that are constantly irritated or injured by clothing, shoes, belts, belts, when shaving or combing hair. It is such moles that have the greatest chance to degenerate into melanoma over time.

If the birthmark began to change, a visit to the doctor should not be postponed. What you should pay attention to first of all:
- the size of the mole changes, it began to noticeably increase;
- the structure of the mole changes, areas of compaction, tubercles, cracks, peeling, crusts appear on it;
- the color of the mole changes, it darkens or brightens, spots appear on it;
- the mole became inflamed, began to bleed, or a reddish nimbus appeared around it;
- in the mole, itching or burning is felt, touching it has become painful.

Often, the person himself contributes to the degeneration of the usual nevus into melanoma. Often, hairs are pulled out from moles located on the face or open areas of the body, which is a strong irritating factor for a birthmark. No less harm is caused by attempts to discolor or remove a mole yourself, cauterizing, pruning, or somehow injuring it. Do not forget that the birthmark can be adversely affected by excessive sunbathing, and especially the abuse of the solarium.

Those who treat moles on the body with real or ostentatious indifference should remember that melanoma, like other malignant formations, lends itself well to treatment only at the initial stage of development. When metastases appear, treatment will become difficult, painful, expensive and, unfortunately, not always effective.

Recently, more and more various folk healers offer their help in removing moles or treating melanoma. The likelihood that they will be able to provide real help is usually incommensurable with the negative consequences that such “treatment” can lead to. In the best case, the healer’s patient gets scars and spots on the site of the removed moles, in the worst - the melanoma. I do not exclude that among the healers there may be real professionals, but you must admit that the probability of meeting them is extremely small.

I am a supporter of traditional medicine methods, but in cases with moles I recommend not to self-medicate, not to waste time and money on various healers, and immediately consult a doctor. If necessary, a histological examination will be performed to verify the quality of the mole, and the most effective option for its removal will be selected. Recently, laser removal of birthmarks has been increasingly used, the advantage of which is relative painlessness, safety and effectiveness. In addition, with this method of removal, there are no traces on the skin, except when significant moles are removed. Naturally, in the rehabilitation period after removal of the mole, it is necessary to strictly follow the doctor’s instructions.

Birthmarks are not as harmless as it seems at first glance, therefore they must be taken seriously, especially since modern medicine can provide effective help if, of course, you apply for it in a timely manner.
