Warts – Warts are benign changes in the skin and of mucous membranes are caused by different types of human papillomaviruses. They occur in the form of ordinary warty outgrowths of rough surface, and sometimes may be filiform in appearance with a thin base attached to the skin. They usually occur at microtrauma sites.
Warts are contagious and if not treated can be transmitted from human to human, and in one person can be found in many different places because of the transmission of the virus from one place to another on the skin. This form of transmission is called autoinoculation. Warts should never scrape or it could incite their expansion.
Type of warts
Depending on the virus that causes them, warts are divided into
- verrucae vulgaris – the usual classical warts that can appear anywhere on the face and body. They have a rough, horny surface, and can be brownish. They can grow up to 2.5 cm in width and can be connected. They most commonly occur in children, especially on the hands.
- verucae plane – Another common type of warts in children. They manifest as flattened papules of 1 to 5 mm in diameter of normal skin or light brown and localized on the face, chin and dorsum of the fist
- verrucae plantares – warts that occur on the feet (soles) often mosaic-like appearance and when walking are very painful
- papillomas – benign outgrowths of the skin or pigmented that occur more frequently in obese individuals in the neck, armpits and groin
- condylomas (condylomata acuminata) – genital warts that occur in the genital region and are transmitted sexually
The problem of warts on the skin is most common in school-age children, although they also occur in adults. Nipples are contagious and in order to prevent them from spreading it is necessary to remove them in time. Warts can sometimes disappear without treatment, but they usually persist and widen.
Warts are removed by various methods (cryotherapy, surgical laser, radio waves, cauter …). The method of choice for wart removal is individual and depends on the type of warts being removed.
Laser wart removal is a good method, however, we do not have an accurate overview of the depth of action and whether we have destroyed the edges at intervention because they look relatively healthy, and they contain virus particles that are undoubtedly the cause of relapse (recurrence of warts). Laser nipple removal is painful, requires anesthesia and leaves scars.
Removing warts with radio waves is a very uncomfortable and painful method that requires the use of anesthetics, and as a consequence of removing warts with radio waves, ugly scars often remain.
The most effective wart removal - Cryotherapy
Cryotherapy is generally singled out as the method of choice for wart removal because it is fast, painless, effective and financially advantageous, and is the only method by which warts are removed without scarring.
Cryotherapy removal of the nipples generally requires only one intervention, except for the soles of the soles of the soles of the feet where therapy must be repeated. The use of a state-of-the-art Brymill appliance with different types of applicators allows liquid nitrogen to be applied with high control and precision without damaging the surrounding healthy skin.
SkinCare Center therapists have undergone training in the application of cryotherapy in nursing and are Brymill certified.
Avoid contact with contagious nipples. If you have one, wear waterproof patches in public showers, swimming pools, public toilets, exercise rooms and similar places to avoid infecting others.
