Removal of papillomas at home

Self-removal of papillomas with the help of drugs

Papilloma is primarily a neoplasm that is benign in nature. Its morphological composition may not change during a person's life, but sometimes it can degenerate into a malignant tumor.

The appearance of papilloma growths is caused by a virus. According to the latest data, it is found in the body of 90% of the entire population. This does not always lead to the development of papillomatosis. Basically, it wakes up in the event of a decrease in the functions of the body's immune system.

Reasons for the development of papilloma virus

Sexual transmission of human papillomavirus infection

Papilloma virus infection occurs through direct contact between a healthy and a sick person. Basically this is what happens:

  • Due to accidental sexual contacts in which a protective method of contraception (condom) was not used.
  • Infection can occur by visiting public places (baths, solariums, swimming pools, saunas).
  • If there are wounds on the skin of the hands (even small ones), the risk of infection increases when handling a sick person.
  • Non-compliance with the basic standards of general and intimate hygiene, which are connected with the individual use of towels, scissors and combs.
  • A newborn can become infected at birth by passing through the mother's birth canal.

Types of papilloma

A papilloma growth looks like a small neoplasm that protrudes slightly above the surface of the skin. Its diameter can reach 10 mm. Places where papillomas occur are the armpit, neck and chest, perineum and intimate organs.

Papilloma growths can manifest as:

  1. A common wart.The most common manifestation of the papilloma virus. It usually has a diameter of no more than 5 mm, and the shape has a rounded outline. The color practically does not differ from the pigment of the body. Sometimes it can be slightly brownish and have a rough surface.

    A common wart

    They are most often found:

    • On the hands.
    • The head can be hidden under the hair.
    • Leather folds.
    • In the groin area.
    • On the neck.
  2. Acrochord.Or hanging papilloma. This variety can be distinguished from others by the fact that it is attached to the body by a thin stem, and its growth does not take place in width, but in length. This causes some discomfort to the person. Because as it grows, it can easily be damaged if it gets caught on clothing.

    Filiform papilloma

    Also, this type of growth is characterized by multiple growth. They are localized in several pieces, mainly on the sensitive skin of the neck, eyes and perineum.

  3. Teenage papillomas.This type of papilloma can be considered the safest growth. They practically do not differ in color from the skin and do not stand out. And they usually disappear after puberty.

  4. Teenage papillomas on the face
  5. Condylomas.There are two types, flat and pointed. When they appear, the patient should be careful. And take their appearance seriously. They tend to develop into malignant neoplasms. You can get infected with this type of condyloma through sexual contact.

    Condylomas acuminata

    They are often found on the mucous membranes of the external and internal genital organs or around the rectal sphincter. Often their appearance is observed in the oral cavity.

    Another danger of these papilloma growths is their propensity for increased traumatization. They then become entry points for infection.

When can papillomas be removed at home?

There are mainly two reasons for papilloma removal:

  1. Medically.It is based on the ability of this type of neoplasm to transform into a malignant state. In order for this not to happen, they resort to surgical methods of treatment. Laser or cryodestruction is used less often than scalpel removal.
  2. Cosmetic.This reason causes aesthetic discomfort, especially in women.

In any case, the decision to remove a papilloma growth must be agreed with a dermatologist. And, if he prescribes removal, it is best to do it on an outpatient basis or in a hospital.

Since independent removal of this pathological growth can lead to:

  • Causes unwanted burns of nearby tissues.
  • Development of bleeding.
  • Cicatricial changes on the skin.
  • If sanitary conditions are not sufficient, there is a high probability of wound infection.
  • If the manipulation is performed poorly, a relapse may occur.
Papilloma damage

There are also restrictions according to which it is considered impossible to remove papillomas and warts at home.

A papillomatous growth should not be touched or removed:

  • If it quickly hypertrophies and changes color to darker tones.
  • If it is localized in the mouth or oropharynx, as well as in the eye or eyelid area.
  • If the papilloma is damaged and bleeds or changes shape, home removal can lead to complications.

In no case do not use scissors, a razor or a knife to remove papillomas. In addition to the fact that these objects are sources of infection, they will lead to the opposite effect. The papilloma will grow back, will tend to progress rapidly and will be multiple in nature.

When removing papillomas at home, it is recommended to use drugs that can be purchased in pharmacies. Or resort to traditional medicine, which your doctor allows.

Do not wrap the leg of the papilloma with threads, or cover the body of the growth with adhesive tape or tape. Because after using such prescriptions, an unaesthetic scar remains and there is a possibility of infection.

When the papilloma is localized in intimate areas, the removal procedure should be performed only by a doctor and only in hospital conditions.

  3. Poison-based cauterization drugs.They are very effective against hanging papillomas. They give good results, and after their use, the reappearance of pathological growth is very rarely observed. Medicines containing phenol are used for this purpose. It is a powerful poison. In order not to damage the adjacent skin, the drug is applied cyclically. At least 15 minutes must pass after the first application of the drug, after which the next layer is applied.
