How to get rid of papillomas and warts

papilloma on the human body

Papillomas are often perceived as a small cosmetic defect, if the locations do not cause physical discomfort. However, despite the insignificance of the symptoms of the disease, the presence of papillomas is a symptom of a viral infection of the organism, the further development of which may have unpredictable consequences.

What is a papilloma?

Papilloma is a tumor on the skin surface or mucous membrane. Symptoms range from broad leathery nodules, several prominent above the skin surface, to substantially protruding spines elongated, located on the leg. Their location may be the group that often leads to the formation of a single mass with a serrated surface or a single. Also, vary the localization of papillomas from the external skin surface to the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, genital and internal organs.

The culprit of damaging the surface structure of the dermal layer is the human papillomavirus (HPV), which penetrates into the cell, causing its uncontrolled division, leading to the formation of warts.

To date, allocated more than 500 species of papillomaviruses, many of which can cause not only the appearance of warts, but also benign or malignant tumors.
What kind of development will have the tumor, triggered by the papillomavirus depends on the method of its penetration into the cell. There are two types of parasitism of a virus in a cell:

  • episomally;
  • intracompany.

Episomally method involves the penetration of the virus into the nucleus of epithelial cells, and continued existence, without affecting its genetic structure. This mode of existence is of a benign nature.

When intercommunion the way the virus integrates into the cell's chromosomes, resulting in further division becomes malignant form.

The reasons for the formation of papillomas

Very often, long HPV stays in human tissue, without any clinical manifestations. The impetus for activation of activity of the virus usually is a decrease in the immune properties of the body, infected with a virus.

The reason for the decline of immunity can be:

  • inflammatory diseases with a chronic nature;
  • stress;
  • prolonged stress (emotional and physical);
  • infectious diseases;
  • disorders in the endocrine system;
  • disorders in the digestive system;
  • beriberi.

The types of warts and their place of education

Simple papilloma. A small seal with a hard rough surface, round or oval, not more than 2-3 mm in diameter. Can be placed singly or in groups, forming a continuous fused surface. Usually affects the: hands (palms, fingers, elbows), legs (knees, feet).

Appearing on the body for a long time retain its original shape, then begin to grow often, forming a scattering of growths, which is called mosaic papillomatosis.

Flat papillomas. Have a different shape and a height of about 1 mm. In education retain the color and quality of the surface of the skin, and therefore are, at first sight are not visible. Locations:

  • face (chin, forehead);
  • arms (shoulders, forearms, hands).

Unlike ordinary warts, which appear asymptomatic, the education flat is accompanied by itching and irritation and redness of the affected area.

Filiform papillae (acrochordus). Formed predominantly in individuals older than 45 years. Have the form of an education, to 5 mm long, filiform or rounded, on a thin stalk. Most often placed:

  • centuries;
  • the neck;
  • axillary valine;
  • between the buttocks;
  • in the groin area;
  • under the Breasts.

By themselves, acrochordus not cause discomfort, but due to their location, can be injured during movement and cause pain.

Genital papillomas (warts). Infection vulnerable young people under the age of 35 years. This type of virus has the form of an elongated knot pink or grayish color, is transmitted mainly sexually transmitted, and causes of defeat:

  • anus;
  • genitals (vagina and labia in women; the opening of the urethra and glans penis in males);
  • language;
  • mucosal surfaces of the mouth;
  • lips.

After infection the incubation period lasts 1-6 months. The viruses that trigger the development of condyloma, are a group of medium or high risk of developing cancer and can cause cancer of the rectum, cancer of the genital organs in men and women.

How dangerous is HPV for women

At the risk of cancer, the human papillomavirus (HPV) can be subdivided into 3 types:

  1. Low-risk HPV cancers;
  2. HPV average risk of cancer;
  3. High-risk HPV cancer.

It was found that several types of human papilloma viruses, belonging to the group of high risk of cancer, cause cervical cancer in women. The tests showed that cervical cancer only occurs when infection with human papillomavirus. In the absence of HPV in the body, cervical cancer does not develop.

Today the increasing distribution receives a vaccine against two types of human papillomavirus, contributing to the development of cervical cancer and cancer of the genital organs.

Methods of infection

Due to the wide spread of HPV, and resistance to external influences, the risk of infection is very high. HPV can be transmitted:

  1. Sexually. The most common way of infection peaked kandilomy. It should be noted that condom use is not an obstacle for penetration of the virus, as it can be transmitted through touch;
  2. Childbirth. In this case, the infection occurs from the mother. There is the appearance of papillomas on the oral mucosa or in the genital area newborn. Very often, these papillomas disappear on their own;
  3. Household path. In connection with long-term viability of the virus can be transmitted by physical contact or common goods. Especially increased risk of infection in saunas, swimming pools or public toilets.
  4. Samsarajade by damaging the epithelium. The virus can be transmitted during shaving, injury, or scratch.

Methods of treatment

ways of treating warts

In modern medicine there is no really effective drug that can destroy the virus or limit its penetration into the body. Medical intervention is directed generally to the removal of the impact of the virus, papillomas or tissue tumors of malignant nature. If necessary, targeting HPV therapeutic effect develops in the following directions:

  1. Elimination of diseases that cause weakening of the immune system.
  2. Restoration of the immune system of the patient;
  3. Impact on HPV antiviral treatments;
  4. Removal of warts.

To restore immunity using drugs, having an immunostimulating action. They are able to influence tissue metabolism and activate the resistance of the cells.

The list of immune-modulating means includes:

  • drugs that stimulate the production of interferon;
  • drugs that contain hormone stimulants.

Also a positive effect on the activation of the immune system, has vitamin therapy. As a direct impact on the activity of the virus in the cells, and also to prevent contamination, apply protivovirusnye funds.

According to the method of exposure of antiviral agents are divided into:

  • cause the immune system to destroy the virus;
  • directly affect the cycle of activity of the virus.

Deletion is done in the following ways:

  • method of surgical treatment;
  • removal using laser;
  • electrocoagulation (on the affected area is exposed to a high-frequency current);
  • destruction of the affected tissue with liquid nitrogen;
  • removal of warts using chemicals (chemical cautery).

The methods of treating warts at home

Treatment of warts at home is based on the same principles as in official medical practice. First and foremost, there should be active treatment of diseases that cause weakening of the immune system.

The normalization of the gastrointestinal tract, is one of the highest priorities in restoring the body's resistance. Also, apply the number of available home funds, with the regular use of which, it is possible to achieve an effect comparable to the influence of medication:

  • Tincture of garlic. For the treatment of used water or an alcohol-based tincture. Garlic has potent antiviral activity with a substance allicin. Allicin is also able to provide immunostimulant and anti-inflammatory effect.
  • Decoction of herbs celandine. The application inside it has a depressing effect on the activity of viruses. Application of the juice of celandine, directly to the wart, causing its shrinkage and rejection.
  • Potato juice. Known for its healing properties. Ingestion anti-inflammatory, antitoxic action. When directly applied on the skin, activates the regenerative and metabolic processes in tissues.

Important: the use of folk remedies be sure to consult with a specialist. For example, the celandine itself is toxic, if you do not observe the correct proportions, can poison.

Tools used for chemical removal of warts at home

Removal of warts at home is possible with the help of chemical exposure on the affected area.

Usually applied burning warts using:

  • acetic acid;
  • ammonia;
  • hydrogen peroxide;
  • spinnogo pencil;
  • green walnuts, infused with kerosene.

Systematic effects on papilloma one of these substances causes tissue necrosis of the wart and then self-erase. In order to preserve the integrity of the surrounding tissue, apply chemicals carefully, directly on the wart.

Means causing the violation of tissue respiration

Also contribute to rejection of tumors, means that violate the oxygen supply to tissues. For this purpose, use:

  • Castor oil. Lubrication papillomavirus contributes to the violation of the oxygen exchange in cells. Substances ricin and ricinin constituent of castor oil, cause destructive changes in the tissue of the papillae and contribute to its death. When applied to the wart, you should make the application to prevent its Erasure;
  • Egg white. When applied to the affected area, depriving tissue of oxygen, due to astringent properties. Also has antibacterial action. Apply several layers until a dense cover.
  • Soap. Repeatedly applied to the papilloma, not washing the previous layer. Active action astringent property of drying soap, alkaline, and stearic acid, which is part of it.

How dangerous is removal of warts by yourself

You should not remove warts by tearing or cutting yourself. When a similar papilloma there is a risk of spread of infection to nearby tissues. Also, if self-removal of warts, it is likely to confuse simple papilloma with tumors prone to malignant development. For this reason, previously, you should consult a doctor.
