Warts, Moles and Skin Tags removal

March 05, 2022 0 Comments

Skin tags pose no real danger. They will not develop into a cancerous growth. However sometimes they may be irritating especially if they are found around the collar. You may even decide to remove a skin tag for cosmetic reasons.

When one considers warts, particular attention needs to be taken in the case of genital warts, since these may be transmitted to others. Moreover sometimes genital warts may develop into a cancerous growth. Therefore if you have genital warts you should consult your physician right away.

Moles may develop into a cancerous growth. It is therefore important to take appropriate care of any changes that can occur to any mole. If you have many moles on you body it is not a bad idea to have regular checks.

Take particular attention after summer because the sun rays may make a mole develop into melanoma or cancer of the skin.

Consider any changes that you notice to any of your moles. Specifically you must consult your physician if a mole changes it's:

• Shape
• Size
• Elevation
• Color

You must also consult your physician if your mole starts to itch or the nearby skin starts to irritate you or starts to discolor.

Moreover, certain moles have more probability of developing in a cancer than others. Asymmetric moles are at a more elevated risk to develop into a cancer. The same also applies to irregular moles. Further more moles with a variation of tones have also an increased risk of developing into a cancerous growth.

Moles, Warts & Skin Tags Removal Skin moles are skin growths that may have a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. Although some may be regarded as beauty marks, many others are quite unsightly.

There are various methods that can help you remove skin moles.

• Excision - This is a skin moles removal surgical procedure where local anesthesia is usually administered prior to the treatment. This method can be of two types namely excision with stitches and excision with cauterization. In the case of excision with stitches the growth is physically cut completely out. Stitches are then applied. In the case of excision with cauterization the growth is burned by an appropriate tool. Generally stitches may not be applied in this case.

• Cryosurgery - Liquid nitrogen is circulated into a tool in order to bring its temperature to very low levels. The cells of the skin mole are destroyed by the very low temperatures. The growth dies because the cells burst off with the low temperatures and because the supply of blood to the cells of the growth is interrupted.

• Shave biopsy - This skin moles removal procedure can be applied in the case where the skin mole is above the surface of the skin. An instrument is used to remove the part of the growth that is above the skin level.

• Laser therapy - A concentrate beam of light is directed to the skin mole in order to destroy the cells its cells. Laser therapy may not be so efficient to treat growths that are deep inside the skin.

• Prescription medicine - Your physician may prescribe the appropriate medication depending on your particular case.

• Over the counter medication - Many of these medications are based on acids and therefore can cause a lot of scaring. Furthermore it is of the utmost important that the skin mole to be treated with over the counter medicine is not cancerous. If you are in doubt seek medical advice first. Never use over the counter medication on cancerous growths.

• Home treatment - Home treatments have been used for many years. These include the application of easily find ingredients such as garlic, baking soda, honey, cauliflower juice and other ingredients. It is very important that if you have a suspicious skin mole to seek medial advice immediately. Do not use any home treatment on cancerous growths.

All the above skin moles removal treatments have their advantages and disadvantages. The degree of scarring and healing time depends on many factors. Be well informed about all the characteristic and side effects of the treatments before undergoing any skin moles removal procedure.

Moles, Warts & Skin Tags RemovalWarts on the Face - Are They Diminishing Your Self Esteem?

Warts on the face are more common in children and adolescents, but other older individuals may also have them. Warts on the face are a viral infection caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). They are mainly of two types, namely flat warts and common warts.

Being overly conscious about facial warts will adversely affect your self-esteem. This is particularly for teenagers. Some individuals with facial warts may be more inhibited than necessary and so this affects their social life. Because of this they may be needlessly unhappy and sometimes even depressed.

It is however true that having a large number of them on your face may change your appearance. Some women are quite scared as they look at the mirror and see those bumps on their face. Some may also refrain looking at the mirror because of them.

However it needs to be said that we have the tendency to exaggerate our problems. Women are especially concerned about their looks. But common sense needs to prevail also. Those warts on the face are in reality much less monstrous than one might imagine.

If you are overly concerned, remember that there are many ways that can help you to get rid of them, prevent them to re-occur and if you do not have them, prevent them as much as you can so that you will not be infected by the HPV and get them.

Perhaps warts on the face are more common on children than on any other age group. Children may also be conscious about their facial warts and this may lower their self esteem.
It is very important to strengthen your immune system since this fights infections such as those of the HPV. This may be done by eating healthy food, drink a lot of water, sleep adequately, stop smoking or drinking alcoholic beverages in excess and try to avoid stress as far as possible.

It is very important to teach your children that the large majority of them will disappear after several months or some years. Further more it is important that our children learn about the importance of being beautiful inside, the importance of helping others and the need to build meaningful and healthy relationships with their peers.

Remember that we are both physical and spiritual beings and we have to take care of both in order to lead happy and fulfilling lives.

You can also nurture in children certain habits. Children have a tendency to scratch their warts. These habits will only transfer the HPV from the warts to other parts of the body. Other important precautions involve not going bare footed where the human papilloma virus thrives. These include humid and hot places such as swimming pools, bathroom floors and gyms.
