Greetings Healthy Doctor., I am 28 years old. I want to do couter warts on my face. But it seems I have keloid-prone skin. Is it safe to do? Smkin old warts on the face more and more, because of genetic factors from old people. Or is there a medicine / cream / ointment specifically to prevent the growth of warts? Because mmg is very disturbing appearance.
Hello Karina, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
Warts are a Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) infection on the surface of the skin marked by small bumps, rough texture, pale or brown, and sometimes itchy and painful to the touch. Most warts can disappear by themselves without having to be treated, or doctors usually give an ointment or plaster that is capable of destroying the top layer of skin where the warts are located, can also be done with a curette or laser but this procedure can leave scars or scar tissue.
Keloids are scar tissue after the appearance of wounds, which grow and harden. Your decision to remove warts can be confusing, because keloid wound tissue can grow on top of the wart wound that has been done by laser procedures. I suggest you to consult it directly to a dermatologist in order to find out the best treatment options and possibilities that can occur after the therapy.
As for the things you can do right now are:
Get enough rest and consume nutritious food to optimize the body's defense system so it is not easy to get infected with the HPV virus. Do not scratch or squeeze warts, because it can infect other skin areas affected by the virus. You should avoid skin injuries, body piercing, and unnecessary surgery to prevent keloid growth. Keep the wound covered when you are in the sun to prevent discoloration of the keloid. Such information that I can provide, hopefully can help you.
