Types of warts

Before starting treatment, it is required to establish the exact nature of the neoplasm and the cause that caused it, since there is an outward resemblance of typical warts with skin oncological diseases that require a special approach.

Epidermal verrucous nevus It is dark brown in color and protrudes significantly above the skin surface. It exists from birth. Treat only with surgical methods (surgical removal, laser surgery).

The growth is conical in shape, large in size and penetrates into the deep layers of the skin (the superficial and deep vascular network is damaged). The occurrence is possible at different ages (in an adult, the risk of occurrence is greater than in a child). Both traditional and folk methods of treatment are allowed to use.

Basalioma (malignant tumor of the skin) Single education, more often occurs in the elderly. Around the central formation there is a typical ridge of nodules. In the center there is an impression, covered with a crust (an ulcer occurs when removed).
