Facial warts- these can be of two types- skin colored thick lesions (usually 1-2) like in the photo or small brownish colored flat lesions (generally many in number). Commonly seen on the forehead or beard areas in men but can occur anywhere on face or body.
These have a potential to MULTIPLY and spread and hence should be treated at the earliest point of diagnosis.
Seborrheic keratosis- generally seen on the face in elderly age group. They are generally dark coloured large in size and have a unsightly appearance. These are actually benign tumours of the skin and hence if abnormally large in size or rapidly growing may warrant a microscopic evaluation to rule out a #malignancy
Along with creating awareness about these growths the agenda of this article is to create an awareness about the fact that while the cosmetic removal is most spoken of the medical need for a correct diagnosis before their removal is a much needed exercise. "Most skin tag patients often complain of having facial warts as diagnosed by a friend, neighbour or the salon lady and then adopt diy home remedies meant for facial warts where actually they never had warts to begin with"- says Dr Sonam a #Dermatologist
in practise at Srishti Skin Clinic, #Thane.
The photo today is of a facial wart removed by Dr Sonam using a RADIO-FREQUENCY treatment at her clinic.
