Can Warts Be Pulled Off With A Thread?
I have a wart on the nipple but can I pull it off with a thread?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Warts are a form of skin disorder that occurs due to HPV virus infection and is characterized by their appearance in the form of small lumps, rough texture, pale or brown color, and can feel itchy or painful to the touch. This condition is not dangerous, but can interfere with appearance.
Factors that can increase a person's risk for experiencing this condition are having a low immune system, aged children and teens, or sharing goods with other HPV sufferers, such as clothes, towels, razors, nail clippers, sandals and socks.
Regarding your question, we do not recommend that you handle warts like that, because that can cause injury and infection. If you don't want to see a doctor, it's better to wait and be kept clean because this condition can heal by itself over time. If you want to use medicine, you can try using ointments that contain salicylic acid, and don't forget to pay attention to the rules of use.
If it does not heal, or there are accompanying symptoms such as bleeding, shape and color change, or you are not sure that it is a wart, then we recommend that you check your condition to the dermatologist, so there is no misunderstanding and you can be handled more precisely, for example using laser, freezing therapy, curette and electrical therapy. So, hopefully answering your question.
