Warts - general information
Toads have no relation to the warts.They did not cause they do not distribute them, they do not even know what a wart.
Warts are a mild form of skin tumors that can occur singly or in groups on almost any part of the body.Although each type has its own name, all of them are caused by different types of virus hard papillomas.He skillfully manages to force the body to provide him with "food and lodging", which in medicine known as the wart itself.
Warts are constantly approximately 10% of the population, and perhaps 75% of people at least once in his life had warts.Not surprisingly, we spend large amounts of money each year for the treatment of warts!After acne warts are the most common skin disease.
Unfortunately, standard medical treatment is often a frightening rumor destructive methods such as moxibustion, scraping, cutting, freezing, obkalyvanie or removal by laser.These methods can help, but may not help.Many of them leave scars and painful.Besides warts often occur
Knowing all this, you might want to try some home remedy before you go to the doctor.But in any case, pay attention to the advice of a dermatologist Thomas Goodman of the Center for Health Sciences at the University of Tennessee, "Do not hurt yourself wart treatment.Start with simple measures and continue to use them for several weeks before moving on to more complex. "
Symptoms that may be needed to see a doctor
First of all, make sure that it is a wart, not just corn, not a bone spur, not a mole, or cancerous lesion.According to Dr. Alvin Zelikson, many usually think that warts are very easy to diagnose, and treat warts skin cancer or other tumors.Therefore, if you have any doubt, go to the doctor.
In general, warts are pale, under the skin, growths with a rough surface, even colored and fringed superficial capillaries.Normal skin lines do not cross the warts surface, as opposed to popular opinion, warts are very superficial growths - they do not have roots or shoots that go down to the bone.
warts Warts are caused by a virus.You it pick up a same way as any viral infection.If you are susceptible to the virus, or you have a cut or break in the skin, you get a wart.It's simple.Even so, you can do something to reduce the risk.
Do not go barefoot
«wart virus thrives in a very humid environment, - says podiatrist Susan Levin, - so always wear plastic sandals around swimming pools, health clubs and locker rooms to avoid exposure to the virus.Avoiding walking barefoot, try and keep your feet from cuts and cracks through which the virus can easily penetrate. "Most
«Since the wart virus multiplies in damp places, you should frequently change their shoes and give the shoes to dry out in between Socks», - says Dr. Levin.
«The health clubs or gyms, you may want to wash shower this drug as Lysol, - says Dr. Levin.- But even a bleach in the home kills viruses and bacteria. "
Look but do not touch
«Warts are easily spread, - says podiatrist Marc A. Brenner - so if you have one, for example on the bottom, try not to touch her hand.If you have a finger cut, even small, you risk getting a wart. "
If the wart virus enters through a cut or injury around the cuticle, it can cause a particularly nasty type of warts, periungual called."They are difficult to treat, - says Dr. Levin.- If you cut the cuticles, apply antibiotic cream for external use (such as bacitracin) and even a bandage until healed. "
«I have a feeling that people who are under stress are more susceptible to warts, - says Dr. Levin.- It seems that in such cases the warts spread more. "
following funds effective for common warts, and plantar (those that are on the stack).
Leave them alone
In accordance with the established fact between 40 and 50% of all warts disappear on their own, usually within 2 years.Very often the warts disappear suddenly in children.
Marc A. Brenner, MD from New York, warns that they can grow or spread to other areas.Therefore, if your warts are multiplied, take action.
come to the aid of vitamin A
Dr. Gerry has achieved great success with the help of vitamin A, applying it directly to the wart."Take capsules containing 25 International Units of Vitamin Ltd. A from fish oil or fish liver oil.Open the capsule, squeeze out some of the liquid on the wart and rub it.Do this once a day. "He emphasized that vitamin A should only be used externally: taken orally in large doses, vitamin A can be toxic.
«Different warts respond differently to this treatment.Juvenile warts can go through the month, although it is more likely - in 2-4 months.For plantar warts will need 2 to 5 months or more, "- he says.
Dr. Gerry recalls a woman who was more than 200 warts on his hand.Aggressively pursuing treatment with vitamin A for 7 or 8 months, she was able to get rid of all but one, which remained stubbornly under a fingernail.
look that can make other vitamin
Some people help a paste made of crushed vitamin C tablets and water.Apply the paste on the wart and then bandage, so that it is not erased.Dr. Jeffrey Bland, takes many years studying vitamin C, he says that "although research in this area has been conducted, there is some evidence that the high acidity of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) can kill the virus that causes warts."However, please note that vitamin C (at least in the form of ascorbic acid) can irritate the skin, so you should try to lubricate the paste only the wart.
«I have successfully struggling with warts, imposing on them a bandage, - says Dr. Goodman.- Use any kind of medical bandages and first-aid kit.Tightly bandage and leave them for 24 hours, and so seven days a week.Change the bandage only when it gets dirty.Be patient and persistent for at least 3 weeks.Some people find it really helps if they do everything as it should. "
Try castor oil
«To diversify bandaging technique, drip 1 drop of normal castor oil on the wart 2 times a day and then bandages, as described above," - says Dr. Goodman.
Consultant herbalist Jane Votvel from California also believes in the benefits of castor oil, this time mixed with baking soda to form a thick paste.Apply a paste of 2 times a day.To prevent its erasure, bandage or wear a glove or sock.
Keep feet dry
Warts thrive in damp, so if you keep your feet dry, it can help eliminate plantar warts.Dr. Brenner says: "If you want to get rid of warts, without resorting to chemicals, you can try to change socks at least 3 times a day.And often use medical powder, such as zisorb leg, if necessary, 10 times a day, or other desiccant material, which should help.Believe it or not, I'm prescribed Clorox solution for people who are more on what does not react, and there is reason to believe that it has helped. "
Choose tools commercially available
Perhaps, the most popular means of warts are salicylic acid preparations.It is believed that the salicylic acid softens warts and helps dissolve them.These formulations are produced in a liquid, jelly-like form and in the form of dressings and ointments.Diabetics and people with impaired circulation should not use them.
When treatment with acidic drugs follow 3 rules.First, you need to be sure that you have exactly the warts.Second, follow the instructions on the packaging.And third, if the wart does not disappear within a period of, say, a week or two, go to the doctor.
However, Dr. Brenner said that gelatinous liquid preparations containing usually only 17% of salicylic acid are probably not strong enough to act on plantar warts, which are covered with a thick hardening.
Cover the wart
«If I was choosing from what is available for sale, - said Dr. Mc Ewen, - I would have bought a patch with 40% - tion of salicylic acid, such as mediplast.He is very good at helping with the warts on the soles and may be effective in warts on the hand, even though the hand is more difficult to keep the bandage in place.
main drawback of patches lies in the fact that people often use very large pieces, which cause severe irritation of the surrounding skin, plus they are replaced every day.Soon around the wart formed ulcer, worse than the wart, with which they began to fight.The best way to treat - to use one patch every 4-5 days. "
To make sure that he is well fitted, cut from cardboard template exactly the shape and size of your wart and use it to cut the necessary pieces of plaster.Apply petroleum jelly on the perimeter of the warts, to prevent ingress of any drug on the surrounding skin.
In the arsenal of medications containing salicylic acid, it has a 60% ointment.Dr. Levine recommends for best results, hold the body part with the wart in warm water for about 10 minutes in order to better penetrate the ointment.Good dry, then strike the wart with a small amount of the ointment, apply a bandage.If you are dealing with a plantar wart, do it at night so you do not have to step on the wart and washable ointment.In the morning again hold this area in the water and gently rub with pumice any skin softening agent.
Try the old, proven cream
«The drug, which has long been used to treat warts - Vergo cream containing calcium pantothenate (vitamin C), ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and starch, - says Dr. Nicholas G.Popovic, an associate professor of pharmacy practice at the University of Indiana.- These specific ingredients are not approved by the Office of sanitary inspection by the Food and Drug Administration as an effective wart remover.But it neoznachaet that the drug does not work, only its effectiveness may be established in practice rather than clinical studies. "
Unlike formulations containing salicylic acid, non-irritant Vergo cream and does not cause burns, blistering or damage to surrounding tissues.Time of treatment lasts on average from 2 to 8 weeks.Pull
If you are mature enough to go to the doctor, but not yet ripe for it to freeze or delete your laser wart, there are means for self-medication.This patch Active ingredient - salicylic acid.It is applied to the skin (in this case the wart) and delivers continuously for several hours a certain dose of medication.
This patch is easy to use and does not require pre-wetting water.His naleplyayut at night and removed in the morning.It is available in two sizes (and power), respectively, for the ordinary and plantar warts.
Dr. Zelikson who has tested at full scale in about 40 patients, found that the bandage was removed the warts in about 4-12 weeks.
few simple folk remedies
using several means, you never know for sure, from which it took the wart.The facility, which so neatly cracked down on one small growths can totally act to another.So perhaps your most powerful weapon in the fight against warts - is the use of any means, including folk, for example:
- attach directly to the wart oil solution of vitamin E, clove oil, aloe juice, milkweed juice, the milky juice sow-thistle ormilky juice of unripe figs;
- take garlic capsules or tablets;
- soak lemon slices in apple cider, add a little salt, let stand 2 weeks.Then rub with a slice of lemon warts;
- rub the wart with a piece of chalk or raw potato;
- attach the banana peel to the inner side of the plantar warts.
Game mind: that this is under control?
goes into a trance
«you sleepy, soon you'll be in a deep trance, your warts will disappear soon."Nonsense?No, hypnosis.And it can be an effective weapon against warts.We know that the mind can affect the immune function.
In one study, Dr. Surman spent 5 hypnosis sessions in 17 people with warts on both sides of the body and told them that the warts disappear on one side only.Another group of 7 people, it is not subjected to hypnosis and instructed them to refrain from using any means of warts.After 3 months, more than half of the group which was subjected hypnosis disappeared at least 75% of the warts.
People are not hypnotized, warts still remain, and although the warts do not disappear on both sides of the people who have been hypnotized, "we believe that the experiment was a success," - says Dr. Surman.
Imagine that your warts disappeared
alone the power of persuasion, without hypnosis, can also be effective in removing warts.Probably, most of the research in this area has been made by Professor Nicholas Spanos, Dr. psychology, and his colleagues from Carleton University in Ottawa."We tell patients that they imagine that their warts fall off, they may feel a tingle, as dissolve warts and the skin becomes clean.First we gave them about 2 minutes to such an imagination, then they practiced at home for 5 minutes a day.
Believe it or not, but we could really predict who will achieve results on the basis of the very first session.People who demonstrated a really vivid imagination on this first day is more likely to get rid of their warts than those whose imagination has been relatively weak. "
Other physicians to achieve greater success through power of suggestion.Says Dr. Christopher Mc Ewen, "I treated two children who could not tolerate freezing, with which we usually remove warts.So I gave them a harmless substance and said that it is a very powerful medicine that destroys warts.And it worked. "A strong belief in the treatment can also be explained by the popularity of the old folk remedy to combat warts: Warts rub a coin, and then hide it under the porch.
