Papillomas are such neoplasms that often appear on the body in places where it is extremely easy to damage, or even tear off. But there are individual cases when the papilloma itself falls off, without any known reasons. Of course, just like these processes do not occur and those who are faced with this situation need to know exactly what causes the papilloma to disappear, and what to do about it.
Depending on whether the papilloma itself has fallen off or because of a mechanical effect on it, it will be necessary to take appropriate measures.
Why and how does the human papillomavirus enter the body? This is because it is one of the most common diseases on the planet, and its penetration into the body is possible in many ways, because the virus carries the lion's share of the world's population.
The ways in which HPV enters the body are as follows:
- Sexual contacts
- Sharing household items with carriers;
- HPV is transmitted from mother to baby;
- You can catch the virus in any public places, ranging from saunas to pools.
It is because of such a simple infection scheme that this virus is found in the organisms of billions of people, but not all of it is manifested.
Causes of papillomas
Having dealt with the reasons that lead to the ingress of the virus into the body, it would be nice to deal with the reason why they appear. Having made an analysis of the situation, and examined the factors affecting the appearance of papillomas, it will be possible to change some aspects of the lifestyle and get rid of the manifestations of the human papillomavirus, namely, its visual manifestations.
At the moment, the following reasons for the appearance of papillomas on the skin are distinguished:
- Various chronic infections and inflammations. If a person permanently suffers from any diseases, the body spends too much energy fighting and keeping them in a stable state. Therefore, there are no resources left to fight against HPV, which leads to the appearance of neoplasms;
- Also, papilloma can cause insufficient blood circulation in the muscles, because, oddly enough, with hypodynamia, papillomas appear much more often;
- Sleep disturbance. Sleep, as such, is very important for the body and if there are any disorders in this process, it is likely that the viral infection will begin to manifest itself more actively;
- Stress. For immunity, stress is the greatest threat. With constant stresses, the immune system weakens and if the body is infected with HPV, there is a high probability of the appearance of the virus on the skin.
Of course, the papilloma, after its appearance, can be removed surgically or in some other way, but if the papillomas disappear on their own, then the body itself began to cope with the disease.
Can a papilloma fall off by itself?
For those who have witnessed how the papilloma falls off, it often remains a mystery why this happened. Nevertheless, there are several reasons why these neoplasms fall off, and now options that are not related to mechanical damage, or another way to remove papillomas will be sorted out.
There are three reasons this could happen:
- It's no secret that papillomas can appear due to the fact that the body is weakened and immunity is reduced. And therefore, when this indicator returns to normal, papillomas can dry out as suddenly as they appeared. But this does not happen so often, because when growths are detected, few people begin to take care of their health;
- Hemangioma. This is the second reason because of which papillomas can fall off. When the development of this benign tumor begins, the papilloma itself darkens, after which it disappears. No other symptoms can be traced, but this is a direct signal in order to be checked by an oncologist;
- Hormonal changes. This is the third reason, because in adolescents and pregnant women, neoplasms appear due to jumps in hormones, and if the hormonal background has normalized, papillomas can also successfully fall off themselves, as they appear.
It should be understood that if the papilloma fell off itself, then something has changed in the body. You should not panic about such a “loss”, but, nevertheless, you still need to be examined by a specialist, because it is not known why this happened specifically.
Factors affecting the disappearance of papillomas
If it happened that the papilloma has dried up and after some time has fallen off, then this may not always be due to some negative signals that the body sends to the person. There are several fundamental reasons that affect the process of disappearance of papillomas, and this is often associated with a change in the way of life.
For example, there are such factors that do not allow the growth to be on the skin:
- Timely change in nutrition. The inclusion of vitamins and nutrients in the diet that affect the body's defenses;
- Increased physical activity. This paragraph refers to playing sports, which can also lead to changes in the body, its strengthening and effect on papillomas;
- Any types of hardening;
- Complete rejection of bad habits.
If one of the items is used by an infected HPV in life, then it may well happen that the papilloma is independently eliminated by the body, because it has additional means to fight the virus and eliminate its manifestations on the skin.
What to do if the papilloma has fallen off?
Many do not know what to do if the papilloma has disappeared, or if it happened that it was hooked and torn off by accident. Of course, in case of separation, in any case, it will be necessary to consult a doctor after treatment, but the fallen papilloma, whatever one may say, must be able to be processed correctly so as not to bring the infection there.
There are several recommendations on how to do this correctly:
- If the papilloma began to dry out gradually, and eventually fell off, then this place needs to be anointed with an antiseptic. This will make it possible to reduce the likelihood of infection if there are microcracks at the separation site;
- If the papilloma has the same fate, but it has not completely dried up and only a part of it has come off, then such papillomas are processed identically, but it is advisable to consult a specialist as soon as possible to make sure the growth is safe;
- There are times when the papillomas dry out, disappear, but after that, blood starts to ooze from the wound. This process is stopped with a bandage or cotton wool (bleeding of this nature cannot always be stopped quickly), and then, as in other cases, it is advisable to visit a specialist, because the presence of a papilloma root in the skin can let it grow again in the future;
- When the papilloma is torn off, stripped off and any other injuries, regardless of whether it was dry or not, the neoplasm, or rather its location, is lubricated with an antiseptic, glue the wound with a band-aid and go to the doctor. It will also be nice if you can save a fragment of the tear-off papilloma so that the specialist can make the appropriate tests and prescribe treatment.
Do not be afraid to lose the papilloma, neither with its independent separation, nor with damage. The most important thing is to ensure disinfection at the site of papilloma growth and consult a doctor on time, then you will not have to deal with negative consequences.
If the papilloma has come off, which can be caused by various factors described above, and the person did not take action in time, we can expect consequences that look like this:
- The likelihood of several papillomas appearing near the one that has disappeared. If the drying of the formation occurred, due to the strengthening of the body, then such an outcome is unlikely, but if the neoplasm was damaged or torn off, it is likely that new papillomas may appear around the affected area;
- The wounds, after the papillomas have dried and fall away, cannot heal themselves and protect themselves from infections, therefore it is better to lubricate them, otherwise you can organize severe inflammation of this area;
- There is a chance of degeneration of the papilloma into a malignant tumor. This does not happen so often, however, if it is damaged and left without proper care, a similar outcome is possible.
The papilloma has turned black or inflamed. What to do?
If it happens that the papillomas become inflamed or blackened, you should not wait for them to dry, because in both cases it is extremely important to contact a specialist, and not to use folk remedies to remove them, or even wait for them to disappear. If the neoplasm has become blackened, then you should immediately go to the oncologist and after the examination, most likely, the papilloma will be removed. Almost the same outcome is expected for those with whom it blushed, because both cases indicate an abnormal course in the development of education.
Under no circumstances should you think about deleting yourself, no matter which path you choose. After all, papillomas redden most often because of their damage, and blacken if they begin to degenerate into malignant formations, although not always. In any case, if the papillomas dry out, come off or fall off for some other reason, it is better to solve this issue with the doctor, but not by yourself.
