The formation of small raised flesh-colored growths on the skin near the eyes is a common occurrence among women. Papilloma on the eyelid is not only a noticeable cosmetic defect, but also indicates health problems, especially in the immune system. Fortunately, medicine has developed effective ways to get rid of such troubles.
Causes of papilloma on the eyelids
As in other parts of the body or mucous membranes, the considered benign neoplasm appears on the eyelids due to the activation of the human papillomavirus. This disease is constantly present in the body, but is suppressed by the immune system and does not make itself felt. Obvious HPV symptoms occur under the influence of provoking factors:
- taking hormonal drugs;
- wrong way of life;
- ultraviolet irradiation;
- infectious pathologies;
- severe stress;
- hypothermia of the body;
- age over 30;
- endocrine disorders.
In fact, any disturbances in the functioning of internal systems and organs can lead to the described problems.
How to treat papillomas on the eyelid?
It is not worth hoping for the independent disappearance of the growth, the virus is able to progress and cause the appearance of multiple papillomas, which are dangerous for vision.
Treatment of papilloma on the eyelid consists of 2 stages.
Conservative therapy involves the following activities:
- Normalization of nutrition, lifestyle, sleep patterns and psycho-emotional state.
- Treatment of the underlying disease that led to the activation of HPV.
- Reception of special medicines.
The best remedies for papillomas on the eyelids are modern immunomodulatory and antiviral drugs:
- Roferon A;
A feature of the treatment of papillomas on the eyelids is that external antiviral drugs are not used, only medicines for oral administration and injection are acceptable. The use of local drugs is dangerous due to the proximity of the application area to the mucous membranes and the apple of the eye. For the same reason, folk remedies cannot be used in the described situation, especially since they are usually made on the basis of toxic components (kerosene, celandine).
How to remove papilloma on the eyelid?
With the help of systemic therapy, immunity is strengthened and the activity of the virus is reduced. You can get rid of already existing skin growths only during the removal of papilloma on the eyelid.
The presented procedure is performed in several ways:
- Surgical – excision of the neoplasm with a medical scalpel.
- Laser – burning out the build-up with a laser.
- Electrocoagulation – elimination of papilloma by electric current.
- Radiofrequency – the destruction of the neoplasm by radio waves.
- Cryodestruction – freezing of the growth with liquid nitrogen.
The first indicated method is used extremely rarely and requires high precision, since it involves the removal of a very small area of skin in a sensitive area.
Therefore, modern surgeons mainly prefer laser technologies for the destruction of papillomas. Such procedures provide maximum safety for surrounding healthy tissues and painlessness of the event, as well as high efficiency. In addition, after laser removal, the risk of scarring or scarring at the site of the growth is minimal.
