Self-removal of papilloma using medicine

Papillomas are primarily benign neoplasms. Its morphological composition may not change throughout a person's life, but sometimes it can degenerate into a malignant tumor.

The appearance of papilloma growth is promoted by viruses. 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 decline in the body's immune system function.

Reasons for the development of papillomavirus

Sexual transmission of human papillomavirus infection

Infection with papillomavirus occurs through direct contact between healthy and sick people. Basically this happens:

  • Caused by casual sexual intercourse where a method of contraceptive protection (condom) is not used.
  • Infection can be caused by visiting public places (baths, solariums, swimming pools, saunas).
  • If there is a wound on the skin of the hand (even a small one), the risk of infection increases when shaking hands with a sick person.
  • Failure to comply with the basic standards of general and intimate hygiene, which is associated with the individual use of towels, scissors and combs.
  • Newborns can be infected at birth by passing through the mother's birth canal.

Types of papillomas

Papilloma growths appear as small neoplasms that protrude slightly above the surface of the skin. Its diameter can reach 10 mm. Places where papillomas occur are armpits, neck and chest area, perineum and intimate organs.

Papilloma growth can manifest itself as:

  1. Common warts.The most common manifestation of papillomavirus. It usually has a diameter of no more than 5 mm, and its shape has a circular outline. The color can be said to be no different from the body pigment. Sometimes it may be slightly brown and have a rough surface.

    • In hand.
    • Head, probably hidden under hair.
    • Skin folds.
    • In the groin area.

This variety can be distinguished from others by the fact that it is attached to the body with a thin stalk, and its growth does not occur in width, but in length. This causes some discomfort to a person. Because, as it grows, it is easily damaged by getting caught in clothes.

    Another danger of the growth of these papillomas is their tendency to increase trauma. After that they become a gateway for infection.

When can papillomas be removed at home?
