Treatments for skin lesions
Seborrheic warts are benign growths of epidermal origin. They are very common – they can be found in almost every adult. Most often they are located on the trunk, face and arms. Their formation is affected by genetic predisposition, UV radiation and old age. These are light or dark brown lesions with papillary surface, often disturbing to patients. Fortunately, these lesions almost never become malignant and we can remove them easily and painlessly with lasers or dermatosurgery.
Soft tissue fibromas are benign polypoid skin-colored lesions most commonly located in the neck, armpits, under the breasts, in the groin, and on the eyelids. They may be single, but more often we observe the occurrence of multiple lesions. Their formation is of genetic background in coexistence with metabolic syndrome (insulin resistance, obesity, lipid disorders). Fibromas are an aesthetic problem, fortunately, there are several simple and painless ways to get rid of them, these include laser therapy and dermatosurgery.
Viral warts are usually small skin growths or mucous membranes caused by infection with human papillomavirus (HPV). Small infections skin wounds are more likely to cause an infection, as it is easier for the virus to pass through the damaged skin. Factors that increase the risk of infection include: young age (skin warts much more often affect children and school children), using the same towel as the infected person, dressing the shoes of a sick person (sole warts), forgetting to wear protective footwear to the pool. sauna or baths. Warts are small, hard growths with a rough and uneven surface. Lesions are usually brown, white or flesh-colored, sometimes with visible small black dots on the surface. The clinical picture varies depending on the location: on the palms and soles of the feet the lesions are flat; on the face, especially on the eyelids, long, thin filiform papillae are present. Lesions are generally painless, although lesions on soles can sometimes cause pain and make walking difficult.
Treatment includes topical preparations (self-applied by the patient at home) and in-office procedures such as spooning, cryotherapy (freezing), and laser therapy. During a dermatological visit a doctor assesses skin changes and selects an appropriate method of their removal.
