Papillomas are neoplasms that can appear on any part of the body. Often, when several single growths appear, a person does not pay attention to them, since they do not bring discomfort.
However, if groups of small papillomas form on the skin, it is necessary to get rid of them, because they not only spoil the appearance, but can also be a signal of a serious illness.
Causes of the development of papillomavirus
The main reason why groups of tiny growths appear on the body is the presence of a viral disease in the body. Infection occurs by bodily contact with the carrier during intercourse. In addition, you can catch papillomas when using someone else's personal care products or when touching a sick person in a public place.
An intrauterine transmission of the infection from mother to child has also become a common way of infection with papillomavirus. If during pregnancy, a woman begins to notice accumulations of small growths on any part of the body, you should immediately inform your doctor who will tell you how to get rid of small papillomas on the body.
Types of papillomas and places of their appearance
The accumulation of small papillomas on the skin is often located on tender areas of the body:
Depending on the location, they are divided into several types:
Regardless of the area and reasons for the appearance of papillomas, it is necessary to immediately remove them, because in the absence of proper treatment, growths will spread throughout the body. In addition, this minor nuisance over time can go into the neglected stage, which will complicate the further treatment of papillomavirus.
Surgical removal of papillomas
Today, there are many professional methods of dealing with various types of growths:
- laser coagulation;
- electrical coagulation.
When the papillomavirus is in an advanced stage, and a large number of foci of infection are present on the body, doctors prescribe a surgery for the patient. In this case, the affected areas of the skin are removed with a scalpel.
Indications for surgery
The need for the appointment of surgical measures is based on several factors:
- the appearance of large clusters of small papillomas throughout the body;
- the presence of malignant neoplasms;
- the need for urgent removal of growths;
- the inability to use other methods of combating papillomas at home.
How to remove small papillomas with medication
Modern pharmacology offers a large list of drugs that can effectively cope with papillomavirus. To treat infection, you can use one of the following drugs:
The entire list of drugs is presented as an introduction and before using this or that remedy, consultation with a doctor is necessary. Self-medication can lead to allergic reactions and other side effects.
Removal of papillomas at home
If on the body there is one small group of papillomas, then you should not panic, because you can get rid of this trouble yourself. One of the effective ways to remove growths is the use of herbal decoction from several types of plants:
- nettle leaves;
- shredded dandelion flowers;
- plantain leaves;
3 tablespoons of the listed herbs is poured into 4 liters of boiling liquid and boiled for about 10 minutes. After cooling, the broth cools and is taken no less than three times a day for seven days.
Another option for combating papillomas at home was the use of celandine, which not only helps to quickly get rid of growths, but also prevents their reappearance in the same area of the skin. To do this, you need to take a bunch of fresh grass and squeeze out juice from it, which grease the affected area several times a day.
In view of the fact that papillomas are a viral disease transmitted by contact, it is impossible to completely protect oneself from the onset of infection. However, in order to be less susceptible to infection with this disease, there is a list of preventive recommendations.
The development of the field of medicine does not stand still and today doctors offer to be vaccinated with Gardasil, which prevents the appearance of papillomavirus. It is recommended that this event be held before the onset of sexual activity (9-17 years).
Contraindications to vaccination:
- the presence of exacerbation of chronic diseases;
- allergy to vaccine components;
If there is no desire to get vaccinated, then another effective preventive measure will be a regular visit to a doctor who will prescribe tests to detect an infection in the body until it manifests on the skin. Early diagnosis will allow you to quickly identify the type of virus and draw up a course of the necessary drug treatment.
A simple method of preventive measures is the use of contraceptives during sexual intercourse and personal hygiene. Washing hands after visiting public places and regular wet cleaning in the house will help reduce the risk of contracting papillomavirus several times.
