Music Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz pause and welcome to DermTV. In a previous episode I discussed what viral warts are and why they’re so difficult to treat and how frustrating treating them is. As a matter of fact, I said, treatment of warts has done more to ruin the reputation of dermatologists than anything else we treat. But let me tell you what treatments do work the best. Starting with topical treatments, we like to use chemicals that actually cause a small irritation in the skin. The reason we want to cause an irritation is because when the skin gets.
Irritated then it becomes inflamed. An inflamed skin will wake up the sleeping immunity, which up until that point hasn’t recognized that viral infection and help wipe out the infection. And the two chemicals that I like to use the most are chemicals you’ve heard me talk about many times glycolic acid and salicylic acid. Which at concentrations we discussed before usually are not irritating. Normally, we use salicylic acid at about 2 but for warts we use 16 or 17. Normally, glycolic acid is used at 8, 10 or even 12. Here for wart treatments, we use it at 20 or stronger.
Those are fairly effective ways to treat warts medically. If that doesn’t work we always have the default of falling back to surgical treatment, where under local anesthesia the warts are cut out, but I did explain in the other episode why in a quarter of the times we tend to get reoccurrences because those little tentacles that go out from the warts that we don’t see when we’re doing the surgery. There’s one more special situation and that’s plantar warts on the bottom of the foot. Anytime you go deep enough to completely cure a wart there’s a chance, surgically,.
There’s a chance that you may actually cause a scar. If you do get a scar on the bottom of the foot which is a weight bearing surface, then it hurts when you put pressure on that scar and that’s what happens every time you walk. So we try not to remove warts on the bottom of the foot surgically. Instead, the treatment that I like the best involves using lasers and specific lasers that attack the blood vessels that treat this little growth because if you can knock out those blood vessels you’ll cause the little.

The applicator is used to coat the skin tag with the solution A mild stinging sensation is normal at this stage Any excess cream should be wiped away The cream is left in place for 15 minutes in some cases a second application may be needed where the skin tag is old and thick Fresh water is used to remove the dried cream and clean the treated area We can see as the area is cleaned that the whole skin tag has turned black!

The skin around the treated area is quite red, this should be expected There may even be slight swelling around the base of the skin tag, but this is temporary The healing cream containing pearl oil is then applied to the treated area and surrounding skin. After a short time, the redness around the area has greatly reduced leaving only local redness. After 24 hours we can see there is a little redness around the treated area and the skin tag has become darker and smaller 2, 3 4 days pass.
DermTV What Are Warts DermTV Epi 181
Music Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz pause and welcome to DermTV. Warts are very common growths caused by a virus. As a matter of fact, they are so common that the technical word for wart in medical terminology is verruca vulgaris, translated from Latin that means common warts. Warts are caused by the HPV virus which is also called the human papillomavirus. And because it is caused by a virus 1. Of course, it is an infection. 2. It is contagious. The most common locations that we get warts are on the fingers, on the feet.
And the genitals. Warts are very easy to catch and unfortunately very difficult to treat with medicines. Because of that, we try to treat them surgically with local anesthesia to cut them out. But regardless of how you treat them, with medicines or with surgery, they tend to come back. As a matter of fact, I would like to say that warts have done more to ruin the reputation of a dermatologist than anything else we treat because they tend to come back. Let us talk about why they come back. When your body has an.
Infection, there is a fight between the body and the infection. Normally, the body wins and makes the infection go away, but in order for that to happen, the body has to see the infection and be aware of it. When you have a wart growth, which is a viral infection, this virus lives in what we call an immunologic window. That means that body’s immune system just cannot see it. If it cannot see it, it cannot fight it. And when the body is not helping you fight the infection, then it is very difficult for topical.
Medicines to fight the infection and win. And for that reason, many topical medicines either work very slowly and sometimes not at all. So, the alternative is to cut the virus out. Cut out your wart. Well, we do that with local anesthesia. But let me give you an example of why that tends to fail. This is a tracing of the back of my left hand and the red dot is obviously a wart on the back of my thumb. But look at the little black lines coming off of the wart. Those are tentacles. You cannot see them, I.
Cannot see them. They are under the skin. And those tentacles from one end to the other are much larger than the actual wart. If I just remove the wart and there are tentacles and do not remove the tentacles, those tentacles tend to become a focus from which the wart grows right back. So, if I want to be sure I am going to get rid of the wart and have it not come back, I have to guess and take a much larger area than the actual wart takes. Well, if I do that, I am going to cause an unnecessarily disfiguring.
Scar. So we do not like to take those large areas out. Instead, we just remove the wart, and that is why in about one in four times the wart tends to come back. There is one other situation and that is the bottom of the foot. Again, if you cut a wart out, you may go sufficiently deep if you are successful, so that you actually get a scar. Well, a scar will be of cosmetic importance only elsewhere, but on the bottom of the foot, a scar can be very painful because scars on weightbearing surfaces, when you step.
DermTV The Easiest Way to Identify a Precancerous Mole DermTV Epi 361
Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz pause And welcome to DermTV. DermTV, The Skin Cancer Foundation, the American Academy of Dermatology, The American Cancer Society, and many other leading authorities all stress the importance of self examinations as an aid to the early detection of cancer since the earlier you find it, the more apt it is to be completely curable. So this episode is going to be about a trick for doing better self skin cancer exams. Generally speaking, in most medical issues, symmetry is a reliable indicator that something isn’t dangerous.
So, in doing a self skin exam, if you find a mole or growth that is symmetric, then it is probably normal and not cancerous or precancerous. And just to remind you, a growth is symmetrical if you can fold it down the middle and the two halves are identical. Just like when I fold this circle in half. Yet in all of medicine there is only one situation that I know of where symmetry actually is a bad sign and usually indicates that something is abnormal and in fact at very least, precancerous.
That situation occurs when two moles occur symmetrically to each other on your body. So imagine a line drawn down the center of your body, which of course goes right through your belly button. If you have two moles on your stomach, both about equal distance to the left and right of your bellybutton, then there is a very high probability that both of those moles are precancerous and each have a 20 to 25 life time probability of becoming melanomas. They should be shown to a dermatologist and probably be removed.
Myomectomy Vaginal Fibroid Removal PreOp Patient Engagement and Education
Youtu.beJII8m1HfCEY Your gynecologist has recommended that you undergo surgery to remove vaginal fibroids. But what does that actually mean The uterus is part of a woman’s reproductive system it’s the organ that contains and protects a growing fetus during pregnancy. Fibroids are noncancerous tumors that grow from the inner or outer wall of the uterus. They are quite common as many as 20 of women over 30 will develop fibroids sometime during their lifetimes. In most cases fibroids do not cause any discomfort and are never detected. Occasionally, however,.
Fibroid tumors can cause problems. Complications from fibroid growth can include Pressure on the urinary system. Pressure on the intestines. Interference with the reproductive system Or infection. Because these tumors can grow to be very large, surgery is usually recommended in order to restore health and to protect the uterus. Then the surgeon will use a gloved hand to conduct a vaginal examination and will check the size and location of the uterus by pressing on your lower abdomen. Your doctor will then use a retractor to open the vagina.
Once the cervix is visible, a forceps is used to grasp the front lip of the cervix and to pull it forward causing the uterus to open. Through that opening, your doctor will insert an instrument called a hysteroscope. A hysteroscope allows the surgical team to insert all necessary optical and surgical instruments into the uterus. At the beginning of the procedure, a harmless gas or fluid will be introduced into the uterus, causing it to expand. By inflating the uterus slightly, your doctor is better able to reach the operative site.
Dermatend Reviews Does Dermatend Work
Hello YouTube Now you’ve probably discovered this Dermatend Reviews tutorial because you’ve being doing research into skin tag removal and mole removal and you’ve come across this product Dermatend and you’re wondering whether it works. I was exactly the same as you I was researching the same and I found that this product Dermatend has been featuring pretty prominantly and so I did some further research specifically into this product just to find out what sort of feedback I was getting from people who’ve actually tried it out. So what I did was to go onto several forums.
Online forums and some of the online shopping sites just to find out what sort of Dermatend reviews people were leaving. And what I’ll do I’ll give you a bit of an overview and then I’ll shere with you some of the natural mole removal reviews I found. An overview was there was definitely more people who gave it a positive review and said that it had worked for them than had given a negative review. Certainly there were some negative ones and I guess it’s only natural with any sort of.
Product like this but what I found was the ones that were giving the negative comments only applied it once and didn’t really give it much chance because what I found a few people saying and I’m going to give you an example someone actually said that they used it and they were quite pleased with it on a wart or some warts but they came back again and they had to use it again and it was only after the second time thay used it that the warts sort of stayed away. Other feedback I found was I was particularly.
Looking to see if I could find if there were any Dermatend side effects mentioned and the main sort of comments in that were people were saying that once you’ve used Dermatend and the wart or mole scabs over and then drops off it can leave a redness, a red mark or a potential scar and that you need to use some sort of healing balm as soon as the scab has dropped off otherwise you know it can end up with a permanent scar and I’ve actually found on the site at the moment where you can buy Dermatend its that they’re doing a.
Special deal where you can get this balm for free. I’ll share that with you in a moment but first of all let me show you some of the Dermatend reviews that I’ve actually discovered here. Okay this is one of the forums I went on and as you can see someone was saying Hi, I need some help. I have a mole on my nose I want to have it removed. I’m scared to do surgery and honestly can’t afford it. I found this product called Dermatend online, can anyone tell me if this product is real and really.
Work does it work and not a scam And someone else I am wondering the exact same thing. And then the first comment Hi I have used Dermatend on two moles it removed them in three days I totally recommend it. And then somone here saying I had a skin tag which was on my groin just recently with Dermatend. It had worked for the moles I had but for some reason I did not try it on the skin tag. I guess I just didn’t want to have to even think about something being on that area of.
My body. Anyway, the skin tag scabbed after 2 days it them fell off 3 days later I cannot believe I waited for a year with this ugly thing on me. I can now shave the area without a worry. And then next one here I had at least seven moles on my face, three on my back and one on my arm. I went to a plastic surgeon and was told that they would have to cut the moles off which would leave a scar larger than the moles themselves.
The cost would be almost two thousand dollars. I went online to research products that may take moles off and ran across Dermatend. I had nothing to lose so I ordered it and tried it on all moles eleven of them and I can honestly tell you that all moles came off. Yes, it was gross at first because they start of being black until the moles come off. It did leave red spots for a few weeks but I am not kidding, my face now looks great now without the moles.
I only wish I could have taken photos. Okay and there’s an interesting one here this person here does quite a lot of explanation which is quite useful. I’m not going to read it all but I give it five stars just for the simple fact that it does what it claims. And this person goes on to explain you know exactly how it worked all gone but a few holes divets are left behind and it’s still red. And then a couple of weeks well a week or so later divets have filled in I feel so much.
Better and then what’s this twenty six it’s about another month six weeks later. About half of the moles are starting to grow back so she goes on to say that she reapplied it. Dermatend reviews update a year and a half later they’ve all gone still and the scars have almost vanished just a tiny teeny touch. Update three and a half years later still all gone. So this is you know I found this quite useful because this is really saying that you know the Dermatend has worked for this person not like perfectly first time she had to apply.
It a couple of times but she perservered with it and eventually all her mole and skin tags disappeared and they stayed away which is probably the most important thing. And then this was somone who it didn’t work for. I think what was interesting here she’s saying that it didn’t work but I returned the product and true to their promise received a full refund. So you know I found that pretty important as well. So let’s head over now to the website and I’ll show you what I found there.
Okay so this is the Dermatend website now they’ve got here as well some Dermatend reviews but I tend to prefer to read the sort of independant reviews that I’ve been showing you because you know I’m a bit cynical in as much that I always think that you know a website is only going to show positive results it’s not going to show negative ones so I don’t think you get as much you know information really from the testimonials on a product website. But what I found from here firstly that it’s an all natural bloodroot product I mean this.
Was important for me personally and this is confirmed here. It’s quite a good website actually they you know explain here exactly how Dermatend works and a couple of things that I think are important. First of all there’s this sixty day money back guarantee. Now as I you know explained to you certainly some of the people that reported on the independant forums said it didn’t work for them so I do think it’s worth bearing that in mind but when you get a money back guarantee it does make it a bit easier to make your decision and you know that’s why I was pleased to find.
That other comment that I showed you where someone said that the Company did actually honour their money back guarantee. And then the other thing I wanted to show you here is that they’ve actually got an offer going on at the moment. This one here if you buy the Dermatend Ultra it seems you can get the standard product and then the ultra is obviously stronger and if you buy the Ultra product you’ve got two options here this one I’m showing you and this one over here and you get the balm the.
Healing balm free when you take up these ones. And I think this is pretty important as well because if you remember I showed you from that feedback that what people were saying was that you know if you don’t use the healing balm or some sort of healing balm you can be left with redness and scarring. Okay so I hope that this Dermatend Reviews I’ve done has been beneficial for you. If you want to head over to the website now to check it out further or to invest in one of these offers they’ve got here then all.
DermTV Syringomas White Hard Bumps Under Your Eyes DermTV Epi 224
Music Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz pause and welcome to DermTV. Today’s topic comes from one of Siobhan’s viewers from the YouTube LetzMakeUp channel, that’s LETZ MAKE UP. And the question is what are those white hard bumps around the eye They don’t act like pimples and they don’t respond to treatment like pimples. There’s a very good reason they’re not pimples. They look like whiteheads but they’re not. First of all, they’re usually below the eyes, not next to the eyes or above it, it’s usually on the lower lid and they can be white or yellow, they can be round.
Or oval and they can be flat topped or sort of dome shaped. They have a special name they have nothing to do with acne, they’re called syringomas and syringomas are really enlargements of sweat ducts, having nothing to do with oil glands. Let me show you. This is our favorite diagram of the skin and this sweat gland is down here in the middle of the dermis, the middle layer of the skin and when it makes the sweat it has to get the sweat up to the surface of the skin. So it sends it up through this tube which is.
Called a sweat duct and as it comes out of the dermis, the middle layer of the skin, it enters the epidermis, the upper layer of the skin. And when that duct, that tube, going through the epidermis becomes enlarged, it forms a syringoma. The enlargement of this part of the duct forms that white, hard, round bump. If you squeeze them, nothing comes out, if you put a pin in them, nothing comes out because they’re solid, they’re just enlargements of those tissues and cells that make the channel. How do you.
How to Remove Skin Tags at Home DermTV Epi 511
The internet is full of at home products that remove skin tags. Many work but cause burning and red skin at best, and even worse side effects if you’re not careful. I’ll tell you about them, and also, the best way to remove skin tags at home, which is amazingly simple. Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz pause And welcome to DermTV. Most at home products to remove skin tags work by either chemically burning, known as cauterizing, or freezing skin tags, which then take a few days to fall off. Burning is usually done with acids or other caustic chemicals,.
While freezing is done with chemical sprays that literally cause the skin tags to freeze to death. During the few days it takes for the tags to fall off, there is inflammation, discomfort and burning of the surrounding skin. As if that didn’t sound bad enough, all of these products have four other issues to be aware of. First, you need to make sure what you’re treating is actually a skin tag. If it’s not, you may delay proper treatment, or even make it worse. For example, you don’t want to unsuccessfully treat a skin cancer as a skin tag.
And therefore have it grow deeper or even spread because you delayed the diagnosis and treatment. Second, proper treatment requires precise application of the product to the skin tag and not to the surrounding skin since all skin will be damaged by the product. Allowing even a tiny amount of the chemical to spill onto normal skin causes a burning sensation for a few days until the skin heals. One product advertised online includes a how to tutorial and shows such sloppy application of the product to more of the surrounding skin than to the alleged skin tag.
Which in the tutorial is actually a mole, not a skin tag. That caused a 2 inch diameter area of normal surrounding skin to become bright red and painful from inflammation. Third, since they all work by injuring the skin of the skin tag, it takes many days for the irrevocably injured skin tag to die, shrivel up and fall off. Then complete healing of the base where it was attached to the normal skin takes a few weeks. And last, most products are advertised as gentle but effective. Unfortunately, no chemical or physical cauterant is gentle.
However, precise application to only the skin tag without spilling over to the surrounding normal skin results in less discomfort. Even a tea tree oil based product can create problems since tea tree oil, if used topically in high concentrations may cause skin irritation. In my opinion, the best way to remove skin tags at home is to do the same thing I do in the office. I take an ice cube and chill the skin tag for 15 seconds. Then, with a sterile, very pointed small scissor. I painlessly snip the tag off at the bottom of its stalk where it rises out from the skin.
