How To Get Rid Of Warts On The Face And What Is The Cause Because Of Using Cosmetic Products?
Assalaamu’alaikum doctor, I want to ask, my name is Yaumi I am only 17 years old, on my face there are warts that grow, but a little and small but the shape is not very visible, first when the warts were just plastic … I thought it was just a pimple normal but I already wear a mask that doesn’t disappear, apparently after I searched for information on the internet it turns out it’s not a pimple, but a wart, maybe because right now I am still a student of 1 Vocational School I often use cosmetics that make the face white quickly aka the fake cream and I scared because many articles say that warts are a bit dangerous, is there a natural way to get rid of warts on the face, even though a little and not looking bad but I’m afraid, doctor .. please provide a solution so that my warts can disappear, and whether warts that grow on the face I have anything to do with fake cosmetics that I used to use often?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of pimple on facial skin can indeed be caused by warts. However, in addition to warts, there are many other possibilities that can trigger nodules on the facial skin, such as acne, folliculitis, skin tags, miliaria, fungal infections, viral infections or other microorganisms, contact dermatitis, benign or malignant tumors, and so on. Distinguishing each of these conditions is very difficult to do without a direct examination by a doctor.
Warts are a skin infection that causes the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) virus. This virus attacks the skin and causes keratin (skin protein) to produce more, then accumulate and form a mass of gray or resembling flesh, rough surface, consistency is soft, rarely feels painful, and bleeds easily when experiencing excessive irritation. This virus can be transmitted easily through direct or indirect contact with other wart sufferers. People with poor immune systems (for example infants, the elderly, people with HIV, diabetes, or people who take long-term immune suppressant drugs) are far more at risk of contracting warts than other people. Warts should not be directly related to the use of cosmetics that are not suitable, unless you use these cosmetics together with other wart sufferers.
As mentioned above, not necessarily, complaints on your face are caused by warts. If you have never checked yourself into a doctor, you should not rush to conclusions. It is feared that an improper diagnosis will make the treatment not even right.
It is better if you first check the condition of your facial skin to a doctor or dermatologist to get further treatment. If it is true that the warts that triggered your complaint, treatment can be done by giving doctors several types of drugs, frozen surgery, curettage, lase, electrical surgery, or other medical procedures.
At this time, we recommend that you do not over-hold, pull, squeeze, or give any treatment to the nodules that appear. Be diligent in washing your face with the right cleansing soap, then use sunscreen and moisturizer before your activity. Avoid sharing personal items (including cosmetics, towels, soap) with others, especially those who clearly have an infectious skin disease. Improve your personal hygiene, also protect your immune system with a healthy lifestyle.
Hope this helps ...
