Growths on the body, similar to bright warts or spots on the legs, which appear out of nowhere and often disappear without any treatment, are papillomas.
The causative agent of the disease - the human papilloma virus (from the English - Human Papillomavirus) - enters the body from the outside, is unusually widespread: up to 80% of the world's population is a carrier!
Such a high percentage is due to the fact that the infection occurs by contact, it is almost impossible to curb the transmission of the virus.
Not every carrier attaches importance to the disease and goes to the doctor, so removing papillomas at home is always important.
The nature of the papilloma virus
The insidious virus can be found anywhere: on the neck, armpits, under the chest, on the eyelids, abdomen and genitals. In most cases, it is a benign formation. If the virus attacks cell chromosomes and integrates into the cell nucleus, it becomes malignant.
Before starting treatment, you should consult a doctor to find out the nature of the virus, and then choose an acceptable method.
Who is in danger
A modern person is haunted by chronic stress, illness and bad habits. In such difficult conditions, the immune system fails, the gates open wide for various infections, and the papilloma virus is ready to attack. The main prerequisites for increasing virus activity:
- strong stress;
- serious illness;
- long-term use of drugs;
- old age;
- bad habits: smoking, alcohol;
- high unprotected sexual activity.
If at least one of the signs is present, an exacerbation of the papilloma virus and the appearance of unexpected growths on the skin are likely.
Routes of infection
Anyone can get the virus. But there are factors in which infection is almost inevitable:
- transmission of the virus from mother to newborn;
- unprotected sexual contact with the carrier;
- tactile contact with the patient;
- when sharing household appliances;
- visit to the pool;
- penetration of the virus through skin wounds.
The carrier of the papilloma virus can live peacefully for years and not suspect its presence, enlightenment usually occurs when the immune system is weakened. Then the virus, which rests in the basal layer of the epithelium, comes to the surface and takes the form of genital warts or flattened plaques. Life with papillomas is not pleasant and is not aesthetically pleasing.
The most effective treatment is removal. You can not just cut off the legs of papillomas or try to cut them off, you can cause active growth and reproduction of growths that grow into a malignant form.
At the first signs of infection, visit a dermatologist or try alternative treatments.
Self-removal removes only the superficial part, the papilloma nucleus is not affected. To completely destroy the virus, you should undergo treatment by a dermatologist. The most popular home methods for removing growths are:
- Celandine. The caustic juice of the plant burns the nipples, the same can be done with papillomas. Two methods of treatment are known: tear off a sheet of celandine, smear the papilla with the juice that has come out and stick it with a band-aid. Lubricate once every 2 days, after a while the papilloma will dry out and fall off. Another way: make a "cocktail" of celandine, chaga and wire. Freeze it in ice buckets and apply to the growths three times a day for a few minutes.
- Kalanchoe feathers are cut lengthwise, applied to the papillomas, tied with a bandage and left overnight.
- "garlic cream". Chop the garlic and mix the resulting mass with any cream in a ratio of 1: 2. Then apply to a piece of bandage and attach to the growth, stick it with a band-aid. Leave on for 3 hours, then wash with soap and water.
- Medicinal baths. Pour half a bucket of green chestnut leaves with boiling water, then boil. Insist 12 hours. Prepare a bath from the resulting broth by adding water to a comfortable temperature. The treatment will last for 2 weeks with 7 procedures every other day.
- Peel an onion. Mix the dry shells in a jar with the vinegar. Tie the jar with parchment or a thick cloth, leave in the dark for 2 weeks. Remove the shell and dry it, tie it to the papillomas at night. In the morning, remove the bandage and soften the skin with an oily cream.
- Flower collection: 1 part tricolor violet, 1 part wormwood plant, 3 parts plantain, 2 parts clover flower, St. John's wort, calamus root and dill seeds. Pour boiling water over the collection so that 1 part of the collection gets 7 parts of boiling water. Insist day, strain, take 1 tbsp. spoon three times a day.
- Cologne dandelion flowers. Fill the glass bottle tightly with the dandelion heads. Pour triple cologne there and leave to cook in the dark for 2 weeks. Transfer to a dark glass bottle, store in a cool, dark place. Lubricate the papillomas with infusion 4-5 times a day until they disappear.
Lubricate the papillomas with the egg white left on the walls of the shell after the egg has hatched. Gather it with a piece of bandage and apply on the papilla.
Ancient semi-mystical methods of removing papillomas have survived to this day. The most curious of them:
- Tie knots with silk thread over the growths, stick the thread with knots in the cut potatoes and hide it where no one will find it. After a while, the potatoes will rot and the papillomas will disappear!
- Rub the growths with the potatoes cut in half: first with one half, then with the other. Join the halves, put them in a dark place and try to forget. The skin will peel off after the potatoes have decayed.
- The most romantic way is with the moonlight. In the light of the waning moon in the late evening, rub the papilla on the moonlit surface and the growth will disappear.
Such, at first glance, unusual methods of treatment were practiced by healers in ancient times, and gave a positive effect, they were fixed by repetition.
Today, carriers of papilloma virus have access to a variety of medical treatment methods with the help of tinctures, decoctions and herbal juices. It is recommended to consult a doctor when choosing any method.
