Skin fibromas or warts are benign skin growths, which can be often confused with birthmarks. Even though they don’t represent any danger, they do pose some aesthetic problem to those people that have them. They are typically not painful but they can get when they are irritated or bleed. But, what mostly bothers people and makes them want to get rid of those cosmetic issues as soon as possible is their unpleasant appearance.
So, if you are afraid of the health risk which comes after removing a wart, you should first see what kind of wart it is. More specifically, you should determine whether it’s a virus wart, an infectious wart (possibly caused by HPV) or just a benign skin fibroma. There are also warts which are called filiform verruca and they are virus warts which are prone to extending and they can be typically found on the armpits.
If you notice that the number of warts increases, you should probably start thinking about their removal, as aside from being aesthetically unattractive, they can also pose a problem, as well as become prone to irritations and bleeding. In order to determine the best course of action, depending on the type of wart that you want to remove, you should consult a dermatologist. The dermatologist may suggest removing them entirely or just partially, making them smaller.
Cryotherapy, which is a treatment with liquid nitrogen, is the most common and widely used wart removal method, and it will probably be suggested by your dermatologist. However, before you subject yourself to a treatment, you should first make some research on your own and get some information about the types of treatments, possible scars, side-effects as well as the price range of every treatment.
If your dermatologist approves, you can also try some alternative approaches, such as some natural remedy which can be effective in their removal. A lot of people are praising Fresh celandine juice, (Chelidonium majus L.) or tincture because of its effectiveness, so you can also try it out yourself. All you need to do is to apply the remedy directly on the wart, two times in a day.
There was a study conducted in 2002 by a group of researchers about the effectiveness of sticky tape and liquid nitrogen therapy, in which the researchers instructed patients to apply a sticky tape on the wart and remove the dead skin with pumice stone. It resulted in a successful removal in 85% of the patients that suffered from warts.
And the other treatment with liquid nitrogen, proved to be effective in 60% of the cases with warts.
