What You Need To Know About Warts

Warts are the white, beige, or brown small skin bumps that appear almost anywhere in the body. They are caused by HPV (human papillomavirus), which is acquired when a person is exposed to an environment with contaminated objects or through skin contact with a person who is a carrier of HPV when shaking hands or having sexual intercourse. Warts may also develop on people with autoimmune diseases, like HIV and AIDS. There are different types of wart that appear in the body, including:

Common Wart (verruca vulgaris)- This type of wart commonly appears on the fingers and toes. It has a rough texture and is usually round and grayish in appearance.

Flat Wart – Also known as “verucca planar”, this type is usually not noticeable. Areas commonly affected by flat wart include the face, neck, legs, arms, and around the beard.

Filiform Wart – It is also known as “verruca filiformis” and usually grows around the mouth, nose, neck, and, chin. It looks like a tiny flap or tag of skin. Filiform wart has the same color as the skin.

Periungual Wart – Develops under and around the toenails and fingernails, this type of wart commonly appears in people with nail-biting mannerism. It can be painful and may affect nail growth.

Plantar Wart – It is usually found on the soles of feet and can be painful and uncomfortable. It is acquired when the virus enters the body through tiny cuts, breaks, and other weak spots on the bottom of the feet.

Having warts is always a major turn off for a lot of people since this skin problem is usually related to hygiene issues and HIV. Because of the stigma and discomfort, most people want to get rid of warts. Some will even try home remedies to remove their warts. However, this is not advisable since it is likely that the warts will bleed. When this instance occurs, the infection will spread to other parts of the body. Other home treatments for warts may also cause burning and redness of the skin.

When treating warts, it is best to seek the advice of a dermatologist or visit an aesthetic clinic to avoid the occurrence of other skin problems and infections due to self-medication.

Fortunately, there is now a safe, painless, and convenient treatment for warts called “Electrocautery Warts Removal” that makes use of light electric currents that apply heat to the surface of the skin to burn away unwanted growths. It is also used as a treatment for other abnormal tissue growths.

5 Effective Tips in Maintaining a Healthy Skin during Summer

Summer is one of the favorite seasons in the Philippines because of the outdoor activities this weather invites. However, this is also the time where our skin is prone to damage like dryness, occurrence of signs of aging, skin discoloration and the like. So, how can you maintain your skin hydrated while enjoying the warm weather?

Here are some tips to protect your skin during summer:

1. Use Sunscreen and Makeup with UV Protection

Sun exposure causes wrinkles and fine lines to our skin. Tanning during summer is also a trend but what people usually disregard is the fact that too much sun exposure accelerates the effects of aging and increases your risk of developing skin cancer. The sun’s ultraviolet (UV) light damages the elastin which causes skin to sag, make sure you reapply sunscreen in case you sweat or get wet especially when swimming to protect you from sunburn.

When choosing makeup, make sure that it contains UVA/UVB protection to avoid skin discoloration. Find a makeup that gives enough protection to avoid photo-aging, buy makeup that contains spf 15 or higher.

2. Vitamin C
Vitamin C enhances collagen production which makes our skin firmer and younger looking. You can also apply topical vitamin c to increase the sunscreen’s effectiveness to protect against UV exposure.

3. Keep Hydrated

Drink plenty of water to maintain the moisture balance of your skin, you can also use water based products for your lotion or moisturizer.

4. Cold Shower

Taking cold shower during summer days is highly advisable because we often sweat during this season due to warm weather. Sweat and oil can cause clogging of pores, making your face prone to acne. Hot shower makes your skin dry.

5. Have a Facial

Have a regular facial it is advisable to either have an anti aging facial or anti acne facial. Anti-aging facial is recommended since hot weather makes our skin prone to photoaging. Anti acne facial since sweating and dirt can easily clog pores, causing pimples.
