Spike is a viral skin disease, a type of warts. Most often it is located on the sole of the foot - on the heel or on the thumb of the big toe. Less often on the fingers (on the pads, near the nail, under the top edge of the nail, on the side surfaces of the fingers), on the palm. Many people have papilloma viruses that cause the disease, but only under certain circumstances (skin injuries, reduced immunity) do these viruses begin to multiply rapidly and cause disease.
This formation, similar to the callus, is a dense yellow horn formations, towering above the surface of the skin. The main symptom and difference from ordinary warts and corns is a sharp pain when pressed.
Thorns on the foot cause pain when walking, cause the patient a lot of inconvenience.
What is the difference from corn?
Thorny, unlike a corn, consists not only of cornified skin, but also of filamentous growths of papillary type, which go deep into the muscle tissue. If you remove the upper keratinous part, the spines grow again from the papillae remaining under the skin. That is why they are difficult to treat. Sometimes in one place there are several such formations that have a tendency to merge, at the head of which is the largest, which must be derived - the rest will disappear themselves.
The cause of this disease is weak immunity.
Reasons for weakening the immune system: stresses, frequent colds and chronic diseases, etc. It is especially easy with a weak immunity to catch this sore if there is some kind of injury on the fingers or the foot. It can be a rough scratch, a splinter wound, an abrasion from an uncomfortable shoe. It is especially dangerous if the virus gets into a humid environment, where it begins to multiply rapidly. Therefore, spines on the legs often occur in people suffering from excessive sweating of the feet.
Ways of infection
Transmission of the pathogen occurs through contact with the patient and through the objects that he used. The incubation period is 1.5-2 months.
Minor trauma to the skin can be the entrance gate for viruses. Infection often occurs in swimming pools, baths, sports halls. In order not to get infected, it is impossible to use someone else's shoes, socks, other people's gloves, especially rubber ones, and remove splinters immediately. In public souls be sure to wear personal rubber slippers
Treatment of spinach in polyclinics.
Thorny - one of the most difficult warts. Therefore, it is quite difficult to remove. Often after removal in hospitals and after home treatment, it appears again.
Surgeons can treat formations in several ways: freezing with nitrogen, removal with a scalpel, electrocoagulation, removal with radio waves or a laser.
- Scalpel removal the most traumatic way is the wound that does not heal for a long time. Now it is almost not used, it is used in small hospitals that are not equipped with special equipment.
- Electrocoagulation - a method of removing warts using high frequency current. The current burns out the painful formation along with the roots and the surrounding tissues.
- Often used in clinics nitrogen removal - freeze tissue, and the painful formation is destroyed. But with this method it is difficult to control the depth of exposure, the roots often remain, and new relapses are possible.
- Spoon removal with laser and radio waves - The most painless methods that do not leave scars.
- Chemical methods - The burning of acetic, salicylic, benzoic, nitric acid is more often used at home.
If it is not possible to cure the nails by any method, but on the contrary it grows after removal, then you need to go to the immunologist, who will prescribe a course of immunomodulating and antiviral treatment. It is noticed, for example, that if the herpes virus is present in the body in sufficient quantity, it has an overwhelming effect on the immune system and provokes the growth of human papillomavirus.

But grated potatoes help only for 15-20 nights.
The pharmacy sells remedies for various skin lesions - an extract of celandine. It is enough to lubricate the nails on the leg or fingers with this liquid 3-5 times, and it can be removed forever.

What does a spike on his leg look like
The people called the nipple "chicken ass". Its other name is plantar wart.
In the spike, unlike most warts, there is no leg.
It fits snugly to the skin, resembles an irregular circle or ellipse.
Therefore, it is often confused with corn.
However, upon detailed examination, the differences are found:
- the surface of the spike is rough,
- over time, the edges of the growth rise as if forming a crown,
- in the middle are the nipples - chicken legs,
- gradually the number of papillae increases, and the wart looks like a cauliflower or a sprig of coral,
- similar growths can occur nearby, which gradually merge into a conglomerate,
- if you cut off the hard outer layer, under it will be visible black and maroon dots - clogged vessels.
Confusion in the self-determination of the spinach occurs also due to the outer keratinized layer of the wart.
On the foot, it is often rubbed, coarsened and resembles a dry callus.
However, although the “chicken ass” rises just 1–2 mm above the surface of the skin, it has deep roots that exceed the outer layer several times.
The main ways of infection:
- Household: when using the same household items (dishes, towels, slippers, shoes).
- Sexual: transmitted during sex without the use of barrier contraception.
- Generic: moves from mother to child when the fetus passes through the birth canal.
Shipka is transmitted only in a household way.
It is easy to pick up in public baths, swimming pools, using a bath or shower with a carrier of the virus.
In addition to common factors contributing to the development of HPV, there are additional reasons for its occurrence:
- wearing tight, uncomfortable shoes,
- poor hygiene
- using someone else's socks, slippers,
- foot defects: crooked finger, protruding bone,
- leg injury,
- excessive dryness or sweating,
- diseases leading to tissue trophism: varicose veins, diabetes mellitus, atherosclerosis.
The main symptom of plantar warts is discomfort while walking. It is enhanced when wearing shoes.
Contribute to this:
- permanent growth injury,
- self cutting warts
- tearing papillae with tweezers or scissors.
Particularly dangerous spines, formed due to the 2nd strain of the virus.
It is he who is responsible for the overgrowth of growth in a malignant tumor.
It is worth guarding, if the wart has greatly increased in size (usually it does not exceed 9 mm), it began to hurt, merged with its children.
The most common include:
- Super Cleaner. Despite the name, the medicine does not contain the juice of the plant. It is based on potassium and sodium alkali. It has a necrotizing effect. Aggressively affects healthy skin, so the surface around the growth is smeared with a greasy cream.
- Salicylic acid 60%. Softens the growth and penetrates into the formation. It has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial properties. Treatment of growth with this drug will take 3 weeks.
- Oxolinic acid 3%. It penetrates the affected cells and eliminates the viruses that caused the disease. Treatment with this acid for a long time, lasts up to 2 months. Do not recommend to use to children up to 6 years, pregnant women and nursing mothers.
- Viferon - gel. Immunostimulating drug based on interferon and ascorbic acid. Throat is smeared with it for a week every six hours.
- Bonafton. Effective against all types of growths caused by the papillomavirus. Easily removes the stratum corneum and penetrates into the subcutaneous layers. Spike is processed by it three times a day for 14 - 21 days.
- Panavir - gel. It has local immunomodulatory effects. After the application of the gel, there is practically no recurrence of the spike. The growth surface is treated seven days, 2 to 5 times a day.
- Dermavit. Drug with necrotizing action. The course of treatment is individual - the spike is smeared with it until it turns black. Due to the aggressive components of the cream, the skin should be smeared with vegetable oil or petroleum jelly. Also, there is often a burning sensation. To rub the medication is not necessary, simply distribute over the surface of the skin formation.
Today, removal of the prickles is carried out in one of the ways:
- Surgical excision. Very traumatic and painful type of operation. A prick is cut under anesthesia with a scalpel. The incision heals within two weeks.
- Laser removal. Precision painless method. Allows you to remove even small formations in hard to reach places. The point laser cauterizes the spinach, and layer by layer the formation evaporates.
- Electrocoagulation. Electrical impulses are applied to the plantar wart. Under their influence, the growth cells die. However, this method is only suitable for medium-sized formations. In addition, a scar may appear.
- Cryodestruction The prick is removed with liquid nitrogen. Acts almost instantly: the growth is frozen and disappears. After surgery, a blister appears that disappears within a week.
- Radio wave removal. Fast, painless way that leaves no scars. The radio-wave knife excises the affected tissues, while simultaneously burning the vessels and capillaries. Technology operation excludes possible infection and further spread of the papillomavirus.
Helps to remove spikelets and folk methods.
However, their treatment takes a lot of time, and it is possible to get rid of the wart with home remedies only if the immune system is strengthened in parallel.
- Juice celandine. The shoots of a freshly picked plant are treated with a spikelet every morning and evening. Pre-healthy skin smeared with cream.
- Calendula juice. The juice of the flower is smeared on the nails 2-3 times a day for 20-30 days.
- Garlic. The clove of the root is cut into two parts, applied to the growth and secured with adhesive tape. This application is done daily for the night.
- Apple vinegar. Plantar wart is treated with essence twice a day. Additionally, make a cake of a teaspoon of flour and a few drops of vinegar. It is applied to education, waiting until it dries out, and left for several hours.
- Baths. A good tool as a preliminary procedure before treatment with solutions, creams, or gels. In hot water dissolve the thyme decoction, soda, salt or potassium permanganate.
The effectiveness of the treatment of the spinea depends on the method used and the degree of neglect of the disease.
Folk methods are the longest, do not guarantee a successful outcome and do not exclude relapses.
In turn, an integrated approach, including surgery, external influence and strengthening the immune system, is able to effectively stop the disease.
Skin nodules or nodules most often appear on the big toes or on the heels, occasionally occur on the hands - on the toes of the fingers, near the nail plate, or on the back of the hand. Thorny on the leg causes pain, discomfort and burning, especially if you often take long walks, climb mountains or wear uncomfortable, closed shoes. The main causative agent of the spine is papillomavirus.
With a weakened immune system, or microtraumas (breaks, skin lesions, bruises), the virus "wakes up" and begins to actively multiply. If you look at the seal, inside the skin layers you can see the filamentous black spots, papillary growths that are lost deep in the muscle tissues (take root inwards and touch the nerve endings, provoking bouts of pain). Horny skin has a yellowish tinge, and if pressure is applied to the spike, a sharp pain will pierce the leg, as if a thorn or needle pierced through.
Some people cut off corn with scissors, which is strictly forbidden to do (in contrast to corns, there are vessels inside the spinules).If you cut the top, after a while, the skin is layered again - because of the papillae nested in the tissues. The growth stage of the nodules that have just appeared is very fast - after 1-2 weeks the skin begins to harden and causes inconvenience. If you do not pay attention to the problem, heel grows, forms around a whole family of dead cells, which can merge into a single formation.
How is the papilloma virus transmitted
Any catarrhal disease, depression, nerve states can trigger an activation of the papillomavirus, which always lives in the body, and “sleeps” until it is awakened. In combination with inflamed abrasions, excessive sweating or calluses, due to the wearing of poor-quality shoes, the risk of getting a spinach is enormous.
Additional factors include:
- Increased body weight (obesity),
- Lack of vitamins (vitamin deficiency),
- Flat feet,
- Trouble sleeping
In rare cases, the callus can develop into a malignant tumor. It is very important to monitor hygiene - change your socks daily, wash your feet and wipe thoroughly with a towel (the towel should be separate, designed only for feet).
The virus is easily transmitted by airborne droplets. Try to avoid beaches full of people and places with high humidity - steam baths and saunas. The first symptoms of spike appear after 30-60 days.
If you hold the feet in a basin with soapy water, or steam out on herbs, the callus will "fluff up", and darkening will be noticeable in its center. If you cut the top, purulent mucus will come out. Treatment by folk methods is not always effective, so it is better to contact an experienced dermatologist or immunologist.
Sheepigu in the early stages is much easier to remove. If it has grown to enormous size, only the surgery will save. But, even after the intervention of surgeons, it is likely that growths will form again after a while. Pass without a trace of the disease can, if a person's immune system recovers and independently fights the virus. But such situations are rare exceptions.
Shipiga on the foot: treatment
Surgical excision of the skin and removal of root vessels does not pass without a trace. After healing, scars or particles of papilloma roots remain, which will re-insert under favorable conditions.
One of the effective methods of struggle is electrocoagulation. Exposure to shock on the problem areas of the skin freezes and kills the virus. The neoplasms dissolve after a few procedures, the blood circulation is normalized, the metabolic processes in the tissues are restored. In place of the current exposure, a brown crust is formed, which dries and falls off after complete healing.
Treatment with liquid nitrogen (deep freeze) is a rather painful procedure that does not guarantee complete disposal of the virus and can leave scars.
Laser irradiation is the most optimal and painless option - the laser eliminates the prickly nail, completely burning out its roots. No scars and scars remain after treatment.
It is possible to burn out shipig by using Solkoderm, Kolomak, Cryopharma, Feresol or Cantharidin reagents.
The patch "Salipod" is very popular.
“Solkoderm” contains acetic, lactic, nitric, oxalic acid. Before applying, the growths are wiped with a cotton pad dipped in alcohol and smeared with ointment using an applicator. The first reaction is visible after 3-4 minutes - hardened skin turns gray or becomes colorless.
Shipiga should dry out after about 4 months, you can not pick a crust yourself.
Cryopharma freezes the growth, killing the inner cells. The principle of action, as in liquid nitrogen. Carefully distribute the liquid with an applicator, press the napkin to the sore spot for 10-15 seconds. Burning and pain mean that the medicine has penetrated inside. A light pinkish halo that appeared around the affected area a couple of days later indicates that the freezing effect ends.
To use "Kolomak", you need to pre-steam the legs in the bath. In the morning and in the evening, drip 1-2 drops on damaged areas. Salicylic and lactic acid in the composition in a short time will bring sore, most importantly, do not affect the healthy areas.
It should be borne in mind that all chemical reagents cause pain. It is necessary to use means only after consultation of the expert.
How to remove the corn at home
Methods of traditional medicine are suitable for the treatment of the initial stage of the spike when it has not yet taken root in the tissue.
Onions and Calluses Vinegar
1 medium onion, rub with a small grater, add 1 tbsp. vinegar. Spread the viscous gruel evenly over the gauze fabric, roll it in several layers and attach with a plaster to the finger or heel. Leave the gruel for 4-5 hours.
Before use, check the reaction to allergies. In order to prevent a burn, instead of a gauze lotion, a double plaster is made: in the first one a hole is cut through, a compress is filled with onion gruel, and the top is covered with a second plaster. This lotion can be left on all night.
Gruel of garlic and horseradish
Put 1 tbsp into the patch. garlic and 2 tbsp. chopped horseradish. If you are afraid of burns, horseradish can be replaced with the pulp of raw potatoes. Lotion with potatoes to do for two weeks at night.
Wrap the damaged area with food foil, put on the sock. It is necessary to walk in this form for several days until the foil is worn out. According to many readers, the result is not long in coming.
Not bad proved the cucumber pickle. As it should, soak up the juice of the sock, stretch it on the bad leg, wrap with cling film, stretch another sock on top for warmth, and go to bed. You need to repeat the procedure for at least 7 days, steaming your feet in the bath before bedtime.
One of the easiest ways to treat. In the morning and in the evening, draw a mesh iodine on the growths or use pharmacy extract of celandine.
What does a spinach look like
Shipka is a viral disease similar in nature to papillomas. Most often, the virus appears on the surface of the feet, heels and toes, and in the initial stage it resembles a small knot on the skin.
A characteristic feature of the spike is its roughness, especially pronounced when wet and steaming. After taking hot foot baths, this skin disease resembles a terry mound with a depression in the middle.
A spike (causes and treatment + how to remove a spike in a home - in our article) has a rough surface, as if it was deep inside the tissues
Externally, the spikelet is very similar to an ordinary dry callus, especially in the early stages of its occurrence. As it grows around the main outbreak, small subsidiaries may appear, which are much smaller than the main one. When pressing on the spike, in most cases, there are painful sensations.
Sooner or later the spike grows heavily and occupies a large area of the foot or palm, thereby causing a number of aesthetic inconveniences.
Most often, in the center of the neoplasm, small dark dots are visible, which originate from occluded blood vessels.
Black dots can be seen in the center of the thorn
Thorny is very different from the usual papillomas, moles and corns. The prick has no legs, and its roots are deeply recessed in soft tissue. Most of the neoplasm is under the skin, and foci communicate with each other by filamentous channels.
The affected areas resemble the shape of small craters on keratinized skin, however, this disease does not cause any pigmentation on the body and is similar in color to normal calluses.
The cause of the appearance of skin tumors in humans is the exposure to certain strains of human papillomatosis viruses.
Most often, infection with spike occurs in moments of maximum weakening of the immune system or in a period of stressful situations. The virus can sleep for a long time in the human body, be in the tissues and not cause any external manifestations until the emergence of favorable conditions.
Feet, fingers, and palms are at maximum risk of papillomatosis infection., because these places are the most sweaty and most often experience strong physical pressure. The skin areas on these organs are often damaged, and high humidity and pollution creates favorable conditions for the reproduction of infections.
Many doctors believe that the reason for the appearance of warty growths on the legs is wearing tight shoes. In addition, excessive sweating significantly increases the likelihood of active spread of the virus throughout the entire foot.
How does a spike infection occur?
We found out the causes of the spinea, but before proceeding to consider the methods of its treatment (how to remove the spinach, in particular), find out how the infection occurs.
The exact clinical picture of human infection with the papillomatous virus has not yet been clarified, however most often the infection enters the body through microcracks and wounds in the skin.
Scratches, cuts and other wounds on the skin contribute to the penetration of HPV
The virus gradually penetrates the living tissue under the skin and begins to affect the cells, interfering with their proper growth and development. Under the influence of the virus, the cell mass takes the form of benign neoplasms with altered hereditary information.
Over time, the cell structure is highly modified and the surface of the foot or palm becomes covered with an increasing number of warty growths.
In the initial period of its development, spinach is quite harmless. There are cases when spontaneous recovery occurs and the warty growth disappears without a trace. But most often papilomatosis actively grows and captures all new skin areas.
Over time, the wart neoplasm begins to cause pain not only with pressure, but also at rest.
Sometimes the disease begins to progress with amazing rapidity, and the warts develop into malignant tumors. Most often this occurs when improper treatment and with frequent exposure to external aggressive factors, for example, when trying to self-removal.
Incidence of person-to-person wart transmission is not common. Dangerous spines with a damaged upper layer are dangerous; in this case, particles of damaged tissue can be separated from the main mass and transferred to another carrier.
In this case, with physical contact between people, it is possible to exchange infected biomaterial. For example, when shaking hands or at the time of contact in public transport.
box type = ”note” Important to know! The papilomatosis virus lives outside the human body for no more than 3 hours. If during this period he cannot penetrate into the body of a new owner, he will die without causing harm to anyone. / Box
In addition, the virus is not always able to penetrate deeper than the protective layer of the skin. The presence of cracks, cuts, peeling, as well as high humidity create favorable conditions for the virus to get through the skin into the human body.
Compliance with the most simple rules of cleanliness and personal hygiene are almost an insurmountable obstacle to papilomatosis.
Spitz on foot
The most common methods of treating spine on the foot are chemical exposure and surgical truncation.
When treating spikelets with chemical reagents, the greatest inconvenience is caused by a long period of overgrowth of a chemical burn. If the spinner has already reached a large size, and clusters of daughter tumors have spread around it, then only the central focus is treated. Neighboring foci disappear themselves after a few weeks.
During surgical truncation, a patient for several days may lose the ability to step on the diseased leg, although this largely depends on the extent of the damage to the virus.
Spitz on finger
Spike on the hand is harmless in most cases, and sometimes disappears on its own. On the hands and fingers, the virus penetrates the tissue not very deeply, so you can get rid of papilomatosis by medical or folk remedies on your own, without even resorting to the help of doctors.
Treatment in this case is expressed in the treatment of the affected areas with special ointments or drops. but it is important to observe the dosage and precautions.
One of the most difficult cases when the spine is located on the crotch of the toe. Most often, the neoplasm causes discomfort when walking and causes painful sensations during treatment. The treatment is the same as on the feet. Sometimes the doctor recommends wart removal with a laser. This is a modern, reliable and harmless way.
Spike on heel
With the defeat of papillomatosis of the heel part of the feet, there is a deep penetration into the tissues and a strong growth of the focus of the virus. This is due to increased physical exertion experienced by the heel part during movement.
To remove the spinea in these areas, the strongest tools are used, such as laser burning, etching with chemicals or cryogenic exposure to liquid nitrogen.
Spike under the nail
The most severe case of hitting a spike. Most often, the virus penetrates deep enough and leads to abnormal growth of the nail. Sometimes, during treatment, it is necessary to remove most of the nail and its base in order to get to the roots of the spike.
Treatment is carried out by electrocoagulation or laser coagulation.
The use of chemicals can provoke damage and weakening of the neighboring areas of healthy skin and cause secondary infection with papillomatosis. In this case, surgical removal of the nail or amputation of a part of the finger may be necessary.
How to remove the nails at home
In the vast majority of cases, the treatment of warts can be successfully performed at home without the involvement of surgeons. At the same time, it is nevertheless necessary to make a visit to the doctor to find out the reasons for the appearance of the spike and agree on ways and means to eliminate this cosmetic nuisance.
Practically in any pharmacy there is a whole arsenal of means for fighting with a spike.
It is used for small lesions in soft areas. At the base of the patch is the active layer containing salicylic alcohol and phenol.
The patch is stuck on the affected area and fixed in this state for 10-12 hours. When using the patch may cause discomfort in the form of a burning sensation and a local allergic reaction. In case of severe allergies, stop treatment and consult a doctor.
The areas of skin under the plaster soften and soften. Therefore, they should be protected from external influence.
Salipod plaster from spike
An inexpensive and effective way to get rid of warts, dry calluses and other skin growths. Very easy to use, however treatment by this method requires a lot of time and is not always effective in case of chronic forms of the disease.
To apply the patch, it is enough to cut the desired piece from a large sheet and stick it on the affected skin with a sticky part. To achieve success, the procedure should be repeated many times.
Possible side reactions in the form of local irritation and pain.
Salipod is effective in treating young spines on the hands and toes, but its effectiveness is significantly reduced when used on the feet and heels.The plaster is poorly fixed in case of severe sweating, so you can resort to using a gauze fixing bandage.
Treatment of any skin tumors with ointments is a very long process. But at the same time and the most painless.
Salicylic ointments and ointments with viferon are most commonly used. Salicylic ointment has an anti-inflammatory effect and slowly exfoliates dead cells, and Viferon is suitable for antiviral therapy, as it is an excellent immunomodulator.
Before using ointments, it is recommended to steam the affected areas of the skin to soften them and to penetrate deeper into the affected tissues.
To remove warts at home, there are various solutions of active chemical substances. Most often these are substances that cause severe chemical burns and the destruction of the virus along with living tissues in the places of its localization.
The most popular are the following wart, spike and papilloma fluids:
All of these drugs contain acids, alkalis or poisons for protein structures.
box type = "warning" Warning! The use of drugs based on phenol should be made with extreme caution. Phenol is a potent substance that causes necrosis of living cells.
Before use, you should carefully read the instructions. When applying, avoid contact with eyes and mucous membranes. / Box
In order to achieve the maximum effect, it is recommended to steam the skin in the places where the neoplasms accumulate before applying the warts solution. In order to prevent severe burns, the solution should be applied to a point, thin object, avoiding contact with intact skin. It is best to treat the adjacent areas with a thick layer of vaseline or to glue with a plaster.
The use of acids and caustic alkalis for spine removal is a rather painful procedure, and a chemical burn most often leaves scars on the skin, therefore, it is unacceptable to apply such treatments on the face.
Spinel vein removal
Since ancient times, celandine has been considered an effective treatment for dermatological problems. Celandine juice contains a huge amount of active substances with antiviral and antifungal effect. In addition, celandine juice contains organic acids and tannins.
You can use freshly squeezed juice or pharmacy extract to remove the spike. After 10-15 sessions, the treated neoplasms significantly decrease in size and stop growing.
How to withdraw the spikefish with vinegar
An effective remedy against papilloma viruses is vinegar. The most common use is not liquid vinegar, but a freshly prepared thick mass consisting of vinegar mixed with flour.
The mass is neatly applied to the spiked conglomerate, having previously covered healthy skin with a plaster. It is necessary to conduct 5-10 sessions, depending on the extent of the virus infection.
Other folk remedy for spines
Garlic juice is good for removing young growths. Garlic is known for its antiviral effect in folk medicine for a long time. You can also use the juice from raw potatoes, applied to the steamed area affected by warts.
Folk ways of dealing with warts and spines are quite a lot. But even the most common recipes can not be compared in effectiveness with traditional medicine. Methods of traditional medicine can be used as an additional therapy or as comprehensive measures, but you must get the approval of doctors.
In folk medicine, there are more exotic ways to combat warts. The most alternative way is conspiracy.
To prepare for the plot, boil an egg and let it cool for a while. After that, you should roll the egg over the affected places, saying the following words: “Do not spike, if not. Leave the servant of God (NAME), she will live without you. Amen".
To achieve a positive effect, it is necessary to utter a conspiracy three times, after which the egg must be immediately buried in a hard-to-reach place. It is believed that the neoplasms will disappear after the egg has completely rotted in the soil.
No matter how strange this method may seem, it has a centuries-old experience of traditional medicine and a large number of positive results of treatment. Even a positive attitude can bring healing.
Must be remembered! Stress, fatigue, lack of sleep and negative emotions suppress human immunity. Weak immunity is not able to resist viruses and infections, and they avalanche rush into the human body.
For the successful treatment and activation of their own defense mechanisms, the usual positive attitude is sometimes enough. From this point of view, even an anti-scientific wart plot can be the starting key for triggering immune forces.
Spike removal with liquid nitrogen - advantages and disadvantages
Treatment of skin growths with liquid nitrogen (cryodestruction) is a very effective and safe way to treat any skin growths.
Low-temperature impact instantly destroys all living tissue, along with the filiform roots of the spike. Crystallized particles of the skin are painted out along with the cells affected by the virus.
The procedure is cheap, quick and fairly painless. The disadvantage is a long period of healing.
The procedure is undesirable for persons suffering from high blood pressure. In addition, when freezing with liquid nitrogen, severe damage to healthy tissues is possible, since it is very difficult to control the area and depth of processing.
Spine removal by laser
The most modern and safe procedure. The laser beam with high precision destroys the diseased tissue areas without damaging healthy ones.
The procedure does not require special preparation and is performed under local anesthesia. The postoperative period is 10-15 days, after which the wound heals completely.
The method of laser burning is completely bloodless and very safe; it has no serious contraindications. Among the negative aspects there is a high cost of the procedure and technological equipment.
How to get rid of the spikelet surgically
The traditional method of getting rid of skin growths is removal using a medical scalpel. This is a simple and very common method, but it is quite painful and does not have a full guarantee against relapse.
In some cases, incompletely cut spines gives new processes with a vengeance. Surgical removal requires long postoperative care and treatment of the wound with antiseptic preparations.
Shypitsa: which doctor to contact
