Wart «Chicken butt»: what is this disease and how to treat?
Pleased to welcome all our readers! In today’s post I want to tell you about this dermatological neoplasm as «chicken butt». Under this funny popular name hides the usual plantar wart.
Causes of warts on feet
Wart «chicken butt» is a benign tumor that looks very much like dry corn.
A favorite place of localization of such seals is the skin of the feet, especially the heel pocket. It is not excluded the appearance of warts on the finger, on the foot that caused a lot of inconvenience and problems with the selection of shoes.
Dermatologists say that chicken ass in rare cases, can affect the skin, causing a lot of worries and complexes about their appearance.
The cause of this unpleasant illness is the same, malicious virus the human papilloma virus (HPV), which becomes a cause not only warty growths on the body, but can cause cancerous tumors, internal organs (cancer of the reproductive organs in men and women).
Microbiologists have proved that there are about 80 strains of HPV, carcinogenic abilities have only some of their types.
That is why, before you bring the chicken mole, it is necessary carefully to investigate, convinced of the purity of pathological neoplasms.
The main route of transmission – contact-household. Contracting HPV can be if poor personal hygiene, sharing of personal hygiene items, and when visiting such public places as bath, sauna, pool, fitness center.
After penetration of the virus into the patient, clinical manifestations are not immediately felt. In most cases, the disease can occur in a latent (hidden) until 3-6 months and only if you experience in the body favorable conditions, manifested by bumps on the foot or the palm of the patient.
Contribute to the activation of the virus in the body:
- a weakened immune system;
- chronic diseases of internal organs;
- hyperhidrosis and dry;
- deformation of the feet;
- cracks in the skin.
Diagnostic features and clinical manifestations of the disease
Diagnosis and treatment of any disease begins with a thorough objective research. To confirm the primary diagnosis, the doctor may prescribe the necessary laboratory tests.
As mentioned above, the chicken mole is visually very similar to dry corn. To make a differential diagnosis, it is necessary to remove the top rough layer of build-up, which will open the inner part.
When this wart inside will resemble the florets of a cauliflower, which is covered with small black and red dots.
These points are themselves real shtrobirovaniya capillaries (see photo). If corn will be no such symptoms.
If to speak about the clinical manifestations of the disease, the first symptoms will be the appearance on the foot of the seal, the skin over which will be a little tight with characteristic skin Shine.
This tubercle is at rest may not be disturbed, but when walking, especially if the wart is localized in the heel area, the constant clenching pain become the reason for seeking medical attention.
It is worth noting that chicken mole interferes not only to travel and lead an active lifestyle, it becomes a cause of a violation of the quality of life of the patient.
Selection of comfortable shoes to become a long-term process, often ending inconclusively. In addition, when squeezing and frequent traumatization of growth, harmless «chicken butt» could become a focus of malignancy.
Therefore, timely removal of the growth is the key to a healthy life. How to get rid of these tumors safely and effectively prompt the attending physician, will definitely say that to achieve a pronounced effect only in cases of serious complex treatment, combining different methods.
Treatment and removal
After the examination and determine the nature of the growth on his foot, the doctor will choose the most efficient and gentle method of therapy. To completely cure the disease, you need to:
- to remove a growth on the skin;
- to strengthen the immune system and a course of antiviral therapy;
- regularly to maintain the body with vitamins and microelements;
- eat balanced;
- sports and hardening;
- wear quality shoes, selected size;
- carefully follow the rules of personal hygiene.
Modern dermatology clinic and beauty rooms offer a range of methods of wart removal not only on foot but also throughout the body. Among the most common methods:
- laser removal;
- chemical destruction;
- the surgical removal.
The most effective method of removing «chicken zhopku» is the destruction of cells in the outgrowth with the help of laser beams.
The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, has a high efficiency, eliminate re-formation of warts in the same place.
Remove the outer part of warty growths – it’s not a cure, and the elimination of the symptom. To completely cure the disease is necessary to act on the virus with the help of conservative treatment:
- antiviral drugs;
- immunomodulatory therapy;
- vitamin-mineral complexes.
I note that on many forums we recommend you to cut the wart with a disposable blade.
In no case do not listen to such advice, because improper removal can cause bleeding, inflammation, degeneration into a malignant tumor. Treatment of such diseases should engage qualified dermatologist.
I want to say a couple words about the treatment of warts traditional methods. Herbalists and healers offer a variety of methods for removing warts people’s ways. You can also talk to the wart with a special conspiracy-prayers.
Perhaps some of these methods are capable of producing a specific therapeutic effect, but as a representative of traditional medicine, I advise you to get checked out by a qualified doctor and only after consultation and recommendations to begin treatment chicken wart.
We wish your good health and easy confident gait of life. We hope that our recommendations will help you in the fight against warts.
