Nasa 14 million people daw ang nagkakaroon ng isang klase ng common wart at least once sa buhay nila.
Most of us do not make a big deal out of them because these skin growths are benign.
Kadalasan, para silang mga nunal.
However, Dr. Vicki Belo said at the Cosmopolitan BeautyCon held earlier, August 31, “You do not have to take it out, it does not kill you… [but] they’re unhygienic and unattractive.”
Moreover, sila ay contagious.
They are caused by viruses called human papillomavirus (HPV), 60 of which, according to WebMD.com, are responsible for the warts on the skin.
Ani Dra. Vicki, kailangan daw na ipatanggal sila.
“It’s so ugly and you’re gonna get hawa everybody. So you go like this, may warts ka dito [referring to her hand], so I shake your hand and then I have wart virus na in my hands then if I hold myself, I get warts.”
Madaling nalilipat ang virus through “sharing towels, beso-beso.”
Kaya nga si Dra. VIcki ay merong “no-touch technique” kapag nakiki-beso.
Sabi niya, “When I kiss, air, I go like this, di ba walang touch.”
Ang pinakamainam na gawin ay ipatanggal sila.
The most common treatment is cautery, na tinatanggal ang warts sa pamamagitan ng pagsunog sa bawat surface.
Pero ayon sa beauty doctor, “lumang technology” na raw ito.
Dugtong niya, “We do laser, a carbon dioxide laser. Why is it different? When you do laser, first of all, it gets out right away and it’s very fast so wala siyang marks masyado.
“Sa cautery kasi, that’s controlled by the person so it can be overburned…”
And when this happens, “Magkakaroon ng pigment.”
