Procedures for Removal of Mole, Wart, Skin Tag and The Like

Aug 17, 2007
Indeed the warts, moles, skin tags etc. can be unsightly. They might not be painful so much physically but they do generate emotional pain. The ugliness that is most often associated with warts and also at times with moles is detestable particularly from the cosmetic point of view. No wonder why so many people desperately seek worthy treatment measures for removal of the skin lesions.

Taking care to verify the causatives of warts, moles etc.

Any treatment course for moles and warts need ideally start with checking the right causative factor. The warts viruses cause the skin lesions. These are responsible for producing the bumps on various parts of the body including the soles at times. The warts formed display a granular nature. Medications aimed at controlling the infection ought to be administered in consultation with specialists/physicians. Being a viral disease the warts are contagious too. So, it is also important to check the infection before it spreads to other persons who are susceptible.

Deficiency of potassium in the system can also be the cause of wart formation. In such case potassium rich foods like meat, fish, milk and vegetables should be taken in aplenty in diet. Mineral (potassium) rich nutritional supplements/pills may also be taken in on a regular basis.

Surgical treatment of warts

The surgical measures are usually considered if the medicines, creams, lotions etc. applied for treating warts fail. This is also considered if the skin lesion formed is showing signs of becoming cancerous. For example, a mole may have changed shape and color. The surgical procedures enable removal of warts more precisely. They also help take on larger lesions. Surgical procedures commonly followed in cases of lesions are generally pretty quick and simple. Not even an overnight stay is required.

You need to be careful too. It can be that a margin of the skin around the lesion may need to be removed while removing the warts thus creating the risk of leaving a bigger wound that is more conspicuous than the original wound.

It is local anesthesia that is applied for wart treatment and soon after the operation this loses effect and pain can be felt. So, pain killers are prescribed.

Common treatment

A treatment measure commonly followed is freezing of the lesion with liquid gas. The wart area may also be treated with salicylic acid and other chemicals that are 'painted' on the area. This is later washed off and the affected area is dried and perhaps covered with some protective strip.

Post surgery or post treatment checks

You may be suggested to check your smoking and dietary habits for fostering better wound healing and reducing chances of infection.
