“Doctor, please help us to have a look. My wife and I have inexplicably grown a lot of” small meat pulls “on our necks. What’s the matter?” Mr. Li hurried to find the doctor.
A few months ago, Mr. Li found that there was an abnormal “small meat pull” on his neck. At the beginning, there were only a few or two, and the longer the time, the more. However, this small meat pull was not painful, and he did not take it seriously.
Recently, however, his wife’s neck also had an abnormal small flesh pull, which attracted his attention. The couple may have contracted some infectious diseases.
So the two men came to the hospital for treatment. The doctor saw their necks and probably had a number in his mind.
Subsequently, Mr. Li was diagnosed with human papillomavirus infection (HPV) virus infection. After the infection, the most common part of the disease was in the warm and moist folds of the skin, such as the neck, neck, armpit and thigh root.
Because the disease will not bring discomfort to the body in the early stage, many people will go to the doctor for examination only when the appearance is greatly affected.
1、 How is the skin long “small meat ball” to return a responsibility?
Perhaps many people have found that they have grown some small pimples and small flecks for no reason. Then, what are these “small flecks” in the neck and under the armpits?
The abnormally small flesh on the body is called soft fibroma in clinic. It is a kind of dermatophyte and a benign tumor. It mainly grows in the neck, chest and armpit. Occurrence of the sof thet fibroma is related to low immunity and HPV infection.
When it comes to HPV, I believe most women know it. It is the prime factor that induces cervical cancer. However, HPV virus subtype causing soft fibroma is different from cervical cancer subtype, and does not induce cervical cancer. After finding the soft fibroma on the body, you should pay attention to timely medical examination, and do not scare yourself.
2、 Five kinds of warts on the body are related to HPV infection
“Little tug” on the body seems to be a manifestation of skin disease, but it is not ruled out that it may be HPV infection. HPV is a large family. Different HPV infections can cause different symptoms in the body.
Verruca vulgaris: verruca vulgaris is more common in teenagers. At the early stage of the disease, the verruca body is a large flat horny papule with a needle. With the extension of time, the focus will gradually become larger. Most common warts do not bring obvious uncomfortable symptoms to patients, and some of them will subside after a period of time. This disease mainly occurs in the parts of the body that are easy to be injured, such as fingers, elbows and knees. Its occurrence may be related to HPV virus types 1, 2, 4 and 7.
Flat warts: flat warts are also more common in adolescents and children, generally light brown, pink or similar to skin color, and are more common in the back of the hand, face and arm. The occurrence of this disease may be related to HPV virus 3, 10, 26 ~ 29, 4.
Plantar warts: plantar warts will occur on the sole of the foot. In the early stage, they are mostly small and shiny papules. With the extension of the course of the disease, they will gradually grow to the size of soybeans. Some patients with large lesions will have obvious tenderness when walking. The occurrence of this disease may be related to HPV1 and HPV4.
Filamentous verruca: filamentous verruca is a kind of common verruca, but it belongs to a special subtype, which is more common around the eyelids, corners of the mouth and the neck. The wart body is generally a filament like structure with finger like projections on the surface. Clinically, patients infected with hpv2 virus are more likely to have filamentous warts.
Condyloma acuminatum: the disease will occur around the anus and genitalia, and the shape is like “cauliflower”. The occurrence of this disease is related to HPV11, 6, 16 and 18.
3、 Can the skin grow “small meat balls” be pulled off?
When many people find that there are abnormal small meat balls on their skin, they will think whether they can directly pick them off with their hands. After picking them off, won’t everything be all right? Is this feasible?
Of course, it is not feasible. Directly cutting off the small meat balls is undoubtedly removing the skin tissue. In this way, there will be wounds on the skin and the risk of infection will be greatly increased.
And the HPV virus in the wart may also be carried to other parts of the body after being removed, and may spread infection. Once you find abnormal warts on your skin in daily life, the correct way is to seek medical attention in time, and never handle them by yourself.
4、 How should these “little meat balls” be handled?
At present, the clinical treatment methods for warts include external medicine, local injection, liquid nitrogen freezing, electrocautery and carbon dioxide laser treatment. Some people with less warts can go to the hospital for local sharp curettage to have a radical effect. But this operation must be operated by professionals. Don’t try it yourself!
The treatment methods adopted by different warts are also different. Generally, common warts do not need special treatment and will disappear within 2-4 years. For the treatment of flat warts, external ointment is required to smear the affected area.
Some warts with less body can be treated by physical methods. It is generally difficult to reach the affected area with drug treatment for plantar warts. Therefore, liquid nitrogen freezing, external coating of corrosive acid and other treatment methods are required. The treatment methods for filamentous warts include excision, pruning and liquid nitrogen freezing, and some can be cured by external drugs. The treatment of condyloma acuminatum needs physical therapy, photodynamic therapy and external drugs.
Abnormal warts on the body may affect the appearance and appearance, and warts are infectious. If local ulceration is caused by scratching, it will cause infection and threaten health in the later stage. Xiaomiao once again reminds everyone that if you find any vegetations on your body, you should go to a regular dermatologist for treatment in time. You can’t pull or pull them off by yourself, nor do you use drugs blindly to avoid adverse consequences.
