Warts or Verruca or Condylomata

Homeopathic treatment

Before delving into homeopathic treatment let us first discuss the conventional or allopathic treatment available.

Treatments that may be given by a allopathy or conventional medical professional includes:

  • Topical applications of salicylic acid.
  • Freezing by using liquid nitrogen.
  • Injections of trichophyton agents at the site of warts.
  • Cryosurgery, surgical curettage of the wart.
  • Laser treatment.

The main disadvantages of the above mentioned treatments are:

  • Redness, blisters at the site involved.
  • These procedures are painful and cause burning, stinging pains which cannot be tolerated by a child.
  • Skin puckering.
  • Dark spots at the site involved.
  • Recurrence of warts at the other areas of the body.
  • These treatments are usually very costly.

Even if the patient decides to take the above mentioned treatments, recurrence of warts make them dejected. In contrast homeopathy helps you to not only getting rid of the existing warts but also prevent their recurrence.

Homeopathy considers a wart as a local expression of a systemic disturbance. It believes that skin disorders are a reflection of an internal imbalance and needs to be treated from within.

The remedies are selected after a full individualizing examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution, genetic predisposition and so on.

Homeopathy helps in correcting the altered immune system of the patient responsible for warts. Proper prescription of medicines makes the immune system work more efficiently.

The beauty of the treatment is that the medicines are taken orally and no local applications are applied. Everyone is surprised when an outgrowth falls automatically like a dried leaf of a tree. The flat or plantar warts will go off gradually resuming to the normal skin.

Homeopathic treatment may take time as the skin is the outermost part of the body which has less blood supply as compared to the other parts of the body and often get exposed to the irritants, pollutants and environmental changes. So be in patience to get cured or be a patient always.

There are 131 homeopathy medicines which give great relief in warts or verruca or condylomata. However, the correct choice and the resulting relief is a matter of experience and right judgment on the part of the doctor. The treatment is decided after thorough case taking of the patient. Thus remedies are tailor made unlike allopathy in which all patients receive the same surgery or drugs although trade name may be different.

What are warts or verruca or condylomata

Do you have skin outgrowths in the body which troubles you cosmetically and are embarrassing for you? Don’t worry! You are not alone! These outgrowths are called warts or verruca or condylomata. Many of us have a wart somewhere in our body. Warts are small, usually painless growths on the skin caused by a virus called human papillomavirus (HPV). Occasionally they itch or hurt (particularly on the feet).

Most are harmless and may go on their own. They can affect any area of the body but tend to invade warm, moist places, like small cuts or scratches on the fingers, hands and feet. Warts are usually painless unless they are on the soles of feet or any other part of the body that gets bumped or touched all the time.

They can be found in individuals of any age and in any location. They are particularly common in children and teenagers. Generally warts occur in those who are sexually active.

There is a balance between the virus and the individual’s immune system. Situations that reduce immunity will make it easier for the warts to spread and the patient becomes more susceptible.

Warts on the skin may be passed to another person when that person touches the warts. It is also possible to get them from using towels or other objects that were used by a person who has warts.

Warts are almost universal in the population and affect all ages.

Types

Warts vary in shape and size depending upon the place of occurrence. The types are as follows:

Non genital warts

  • Common warts (verruca vulgaris): These are firm, raised, pink or skin-colored lumps with a rough surface that may look like a cauliflower. They usually appear on the hands, but can appear anywhere.
  • Plane warts (verruca plana): These are small (2 to 4 mm wide), smooth, flat-topped or slightly raised. They affect your face, hands, or legs and can occur alone or in groups. They are usually skin-coloured, light brown or greyish, but are sometimes darker.
  • Filiform wart: These are long, slender growths on your lips, eyelids, face or neck. They can often group together to form a cluster.
  • Verruca (plantar warts): Verrucas are small warts (1 to 10 mm wide) that occur on the soles of your feet, heels or toes. They can be painful when under pressure. They have a rough surface and small black dots can sometimes be seen under the hard skin. Verrucas can be seen alone or in clusters.
  • Mosaic warts: These occur when a number of verrucas group together into a cluster.
  • Periungual or subungual warts: These occur around your nails and are more common if you bite your nails.

Genital warts

  • These are usually found on the genitals, in the pubic area, and in the area between the thighs, but they can also appear inside the vagina and anal canal. They are sexually transmitted.

Causes

Warts are actually an infection in the top layer of skin, caused by viruses of the human papillomavirus or HPV family. When the virus invades this outer layer of skin, usually through a tiny scratch, it causes rapid growth of cells on the outer layer of skin, creating a wart.

Certain forms of the virus (HPV) are more likely to cause skin warts on the hands. Other forms of HPV are more likely to cause genital warts, although some strains of the virus can cause both.

Trauma and maceration facilitate initial epithelial inoculation of the virus. Spread may then occur by autoinoculation.

Local and systemic immune factors appear to influence spread. Immunosuppressed patients are at more risk of developing warts.

Risk factors

Some people are more likely to develop warts after exposure to the HPV virus, including:

  • Children and young adults.
  • People with compromised immune systems, such as those with HIV / AIDS or people who've had organ transplants.
  • People with a family history of warts.

Symptoms

Common warts (verrucae vulgaris)

These typically develop on the hand, especially around the nail. Common warts are gray to flesh colored, raised from the skin surface, and covered with rough, hornlike projections.

Flat warts (verrucae plana)

These are most commonly seen on the face and the back of the hands. They usually appear as small individual bumps about 1/4 inch across. Flat warts may spread rapidly on the face.

Genital warts

They are small, flesh-colored or gray swellings in your genital area. Several warts close together that takes on a cauliflower shape. They may cause itching or discomfort in your genital area. They may cause bleeding with intercourse.

Plantar warts

They are small, fleshy, grainy bumps on the soles of your feet. They are hard, flat growths with a rough surface and well-defined boundaries. There may be gray or brown lumps with one or more black pinpoints, which are actually small, clotted blood vessels, not "wart seeds”. They interrupt the normal lines and ridges in the skin of your feet. They cause pain or tenderness when walking.

Diagnosis

Diagnosis of warts or verruca or condylomata is based on the clinical appearance; biopsy is rarely needed. A cardinal sign is the absence of skin lines crossing their surface and the presence of pin point black dots. Warts bleed when shaved.

Complications

If left untreated, there is a possibility to develop cancerous changes especially in the genital warts.

Prevention

  • Never scratch or pick at a wart.
  • Wash hands frequently.
  • Cover cuts and scratches with bandages to prevent further contamination to damaged skin.
  • Don't touch warts on somebody else’s body.
  • Don't share footwear or head wear.
  • Wear shoes or protective footwear in public bathing / shower areas.
