Most people have experienced warts on their bodies or those of loved ones. And many patients notice disapproving looks on themselves. It so happened that a wart is associated with uncleanliness. However, the appearance of such growths is associated with infection with human papillomavirus (HPV).
So what is this growth? A wart is a neoplasm of a benign nature of viral etymology. Its formation is facilitated by the growth of epithelial cells or mucous membranes. In most cases, warts do not cause painful sensations, they do not bear danger to human life and health, and are an exclusively cosmetic defect.
Neoplasms are classified based on external manifestations and the location of the dislocation.
- Simple or vulgar growths. The most common type. Reminiscent of nodules with a scaly surface up to 10 millimeters in diameter. The color scheme varies from flesh to brownish. Dark blotches appear under the upper rough layer – thrombosed capillaries. Simple growths appear on the limbs, fingers, face, neck, under the hairline;
- Youthful or flat. Smooth, rounded outgrowths, slightly elevated above the skin surface. They are localized on the face, neck, patella and elbow bends. The main category of patients is adolescents. The appearance of such growths is associated with hormonal changes in the puberty;
- Plantar outgrowths or tongue. Like dry corn, covered with a thick, hard crust of brown or yellow hue. They can reach twenty millimeters. The most painful kind of wart. This is due to the fact that during walking, growths are subjected to strong compression, which provokes their growth in depth;
- Seborrheic keratomas or senile growths. Large plaques located in open areas of the body of gray or dark brown color. Not associated with human papillomavirus infection. Their formation provokes physiological changes in the skin in the elderly;
- Genital Warts or Genital Warts. Localized on the genitals, around the anus, mouth, larynx, or tongue. Such neoplasms grow in groups, often merging into one large soft growth. Beige, pink or purple.
Some patients prefer the removal of unwanted formations in specialized clinics. Medical centers offer several ways to radically get rid of skin defects:
- Laser destruction;
- Radio wave therapy;
- Surgical excision.
However, the price of such manipulations is high enough for a family with an average income. In addition, burning out growth in a specialized clinic does not give one hundred percent confidence in the absence of relapses of rashes. The reappearance of warts is due to the viral nature of the disease, therefore, for complete disposal, it is necessary to use drugs that destroy the structure of the virus and help strengthen the body's defenses. These drugs include Panavir.
