The growths on the soles of the feet belong to benign varieties of neoplasms of a viral nature. At the same time, Shipigi on the legs account for 30% of all viral neoplasms.
To many, the growth on the little finger or near the nail seems a trifle. However, it is necessary to visit a dermatologist in order to clarify the diagnosis and exclude oncogenicity of the neoplasm. You can remove the fennel in a specialized clinic. This is the safest way to get rid of the growth. Incorrect treatment can lead to burns to healthy skin, incomplete removal of the tumor or its roots. Such consequences provoke the spread of the virus and can cause the degeneration of a harmless spine into a malignant tumor.
The spine on the leg resembles a dense hemispherical nodule. Initially, a smooth, rounded spot of yellowish color appears. Over time, the surface of the outgrow is compacted and covered with scales. If the affected area is steamed in hot water and the upper stratum corneum is removed, black patches of thrombosed capillaries and small vessels appear. Over time, daughter formations appear near the first outgrowth. Expanding, they cover the foot with a hard crust of brown color.
Causes of occurrence
The main question that interests the patient who noticed plantar growths is why and where they come from. The main reason for the appearance of warts on any part of the skin is infection with papillomavirus. This is one of the most common viruses on the planet. HPV carriers are about 90% of the world's population.
The appearance and localization of warts depends on the strain of the virus that has infected the human body. Once in the bloodstream, HPV is embedded in the DNA of epithelial cells, provoking their rapid growth. This leads to the appearance of growths.
Increase the risk of HPV infection:
- Microtrauma of the skin of the feet;
- Dry and cracked skin;
- Increased sweating;
- Neglect of hygiene procedures;
- Wearing shoes not in size;
- Hypothermia of the legs.
The papillomavirus is transmitted by contact-household transmission. You can get infected by direct contact with the carrier of the virus or by wearing someone else’s shoes, trying on a new pair without a sock, visiting a pool or sauna without rubber shale, can happen even in your home if family members have spikes.
In addition to an unpleasant appearance, a constant discharge of the upper scaly layer. A characteristic feature of plantar warts is the discomfort that they deliver to their "owner". At first, the discomfort resembles walking barefoot on sharp small pebbles. Subsequently, the pain syndrome intensifies. A person becomes a hostage to the disease, cannot move independently.
Painful sensations when walking are explained by the fact that a neglected neoplasm has deep roots. They pinch the nerve endings, leading to pain with pressure on the growth. The popular name for plantar warts is chicken ass, chicken callus, spike or shipiga.
When you can’t do without a doctor
In most cases, plantar outgrowths respond well to medication home treatment. The aesthetic aspects of the skin on the legs are not as important as on the face. Seek qualified help if:
- The appearance of side effects of home therapy;
- Lack of self-medication results for one to two months;
- Intensification of pain;
- Isolation of blood or pus from the growth;
- A rapid increase in the size or number of neoplasms.
After a visual examination, having studied the results of clinical trials, the specialist will recommend an effective way to remove the growth using a radical or conservative technique.
Therapies on the legs
You can derive the leg socks on:
- In a radical way in a specialized medical center;
- By means of a pharmacy;
- Using folk recipes.
A radical way to get rid of herpes
Modern medical centers offer such methods of removing unwanted growths:
- Laser destruction;
- Radio wave therapy;
A high-frequency electric current, closed in a loop, allows you to cauterize a small growth. For large tongues with deep roots, the electrocoagulation method is not suitable. In addition, the minus of the technique is the formation of a scar at the site of the remote outgrowth.
Plantar growth can be reduced with the help of liquid nitrogen. Applied to the growth, liquid nitrogen leads to necrosis of the wart tissue. The neoplasm first turns white, then a bubble appears in its place. After 3-5 days, the bladder deflates and a scab forms, under which young skin forms. During the healing period, the damaged area is treated with a solution of salicylic alcohol or potassium permanganate.
One of the most common methods to combat warts. The advantage of the technique is an affordable price, the simplicity of the procedure, the lack of a preparatory stage, and high treatment effectiveness. The result of the manipulation depends on the qualifications and experience of the attending physician.
The inability to control the depth and strength of exposure to cold can cause a relapse of the disease or the formation of a scar at the site of a remote neoplasm.
The newest, painless method of removing herpes is also considered the most effective. The procedure takes only a few minutes. The laser beam evaporates the tissue of the tongue layer by layer. At the place of formation, a small depression remains, which is independently tightened for a week.
The high efficiency of laser procedures is due to the doctor’s ability to control the depth of exposure, in contrast to cryodestruction. The advantage of laser destruction:
- The regeneration process is fast;
- The likelihood of relapse is low;
- The procedure is painless;
- Skin injury is minimal;
- It is possible to send growth tissue for histological examination.
Radio wave therapy
The radio knife cuts off the wart and simultaneously coagulates (cauterizes) the vessels. The non-contact method of radio wave therapy allows not only to bring out the growth, but also to prevent the spread of papillomavirus. The risk of secondary infection at the site of the excised growth is also completely eliminated. The absence of bleeding, high efficiency and quick restoration of damaged skin makes the radio wave therapy technique very attractive in the eyes of specialists and patients.
A few decades ago, this method was the most common. And now it is being applied less and less. The only reason for the appointment of a surgical operation is an overgrown growth, with large roots, or a suspicion of malignancy of formation.
Manipulation is performed using local anesthesia. The long recovery process, soreness and a mandatory scar are all the disadvantages of surgical excision of warts.
Many patients are panicked by the thought that they will have to go to a specialized clinic, carry out some manipulations, and then treat the wound. You can cure the tongue at home using medications. Gentle methods of getting rid of spikes on the heel are as effective as radical treatment.
