Kulugo

Posted in Health & Fitness, Rants & Rants on Dec 03, 2006

Aruy! aruy! aruy talaga!

I can’t really tolerate pain. Ang sakit talaga promise! It hurts a lot! Sobra! Nasusuka ako sa sobrang sakit! ARAAAYYYY!!!

I had this foot warts or in more common term as “matang isda” for couple of weeks na. It’s more painful every morning after taking bath and when I’m walking long distances. So last Saturday, I decided to have it removed. So far, I don’t know if the pain was worth it. On my right foot, I got 8 warts and 3 on my left. I wasn’t able to take a picture before I had it removed so I don’t have a reference.

So I went to the hospital, which was accredited by our company’s health insurance, in Eastwood. The doctor informed me that the anesthesia was the most painful part of the procedure, and I should have never doubted her. Sobrang sakit talaga. After she applied the anesthesia, she cauterized the wondered part and then scratched or ‘kinayod’ til it bled. After that, she cauterized again to stop bleeding. It was really painful after that, possible that the anesthesia stopped working. But it really made me cry. I drank mefanamic acid, but it did not take affect after 45-minutes or so. So it was really painful…GRABE! According to Dra. Herredia, it will only take couple of days and I could walk normally again. Sana, I’ll be fine sa Christmas Party on the 13th.

I’m so lucky that Malen and Janice was with me that time. They helped me to ride the cab and bus. Thanks to Alex as well for fetching me home. Thank you din Lord for the strength…GRABE!

WARNING: If you have strong stomach, you can see the pics below of my foot warts after they had been cauterized.

    Hi, your blog was really helpful and funny for us reader, talagang feel na feel mo yung sakit ah. My secretary was telling me about what happened to her husband who also diagnosed with Matang Isda. So, I browse sa internet what it was, and there is your blog at the topmost portion of the search. so now, we know its called kulogo or wart. from what i know, nakukuha ang wart sa mga public places, like towels pag nasa salon? or sa shower ng mga gym…kaya ako nag tsitsinelas ako kahit sa shower sa gym. imagine how many paa ang tumapak duon?

  2. joan says:

    nakakatkot nmn.. pero antapang mo ah.. sobra tlaga sakit nyan.. meron nga me kulugo sa kamay eh tagal na d pa rin natangal. kainis tlg lalo na pag holding hands wid bf,yoko,yikes…. pero ginagamot ko nmn sya kaya lngtagal tlg,painless parang cream or liquid something..

  3. mehj :] says:

    auch … meon acoe nito sa tig isang foot ang sakit nya ndii coe aman mtanggal kc xobrang sakit. sabi nila tanggalin coe daw ng nail cutter ang hapdi kaya T.T nafifeel coe tuloi ang nafifeel mu

  4. bry says:

    Ohhh… I can actually relate… I went through the same procedure sa kamay ko… And what sucks is, the derma clinic only used tropical anesthesia…

  5. khing says:

    omg meron din akong ganyan ngayon, kala ko simpleng kalyo lng…
    ang sakit nya talga…

  6. ruthie says:

    hi guys,

    thank you for the comments. yup, aside from walking inside the shower from gym, nakukuha din daw to sa pagsuot ng mga shoes na natry din ng meron ding matang isda. pano na lang pag nagshopping tayo when we buy shoes, di ba? you have to try it pa naman…

    well the doctor gave me something for my other foot, sorry I did not post it, but it was really helpful. better than have it cauterized and it’s cheaper pa.

    just go to Mercury Drug or other drugstores near you, then ask for the salicylic (not sure about the spelling) acid that contest also the virus. a small bottle of it costs around P500 that time. compare to your regular salicylic acid of P30, its really more expensive.

    the good thing is, it really contests the virus from spreading. so gagaling talaga sya. PRAMIS! I only treated my other foot for 5 sessions and tyaran! gumaling na agad sya.

    Procedure:
    1. Maghugas ng paa
    2. Ibabad ung affected na paa for about 20 – 30 mins. sa maligamgam na tubig with alcohol.
    3. Patuyuin, then use the salicylic acid. Be very careful, use the brush applicator that came with it. Just put on the exact area where you can find your kulogo, ung mismong bilog lang. Kasi the tendency is it will ‘burn’ the kulogo. Kill the skin ba…
    4. Then you cover it with the tape. yung ginagamit for wounds na parang scotch tape pero para sa sugat or ginagamit together with gauze. Gupit gupitin para eksakto lang sa kulogo.
    5. Then pag gising sa umaga. Tanggalin ung tape, then you’ll see your kulogo na parang dead skins. tanggalin ung dead skin using the nail cutter.
    6. Repeat the same process until matanggal na ung kulogo. The number of times you have to do it depends on the number of foot warts you have. On my left foot, I had three at first but it increased up to eight big foot warts and I had it treated for at least 3 to 5 times lang ata.

    I hope this helps….

    Leave comments if you’ve tried this and if it worked.

    Thanks!

    i have 2 on my left foot. I went sa derma kasi sobrang sakit na talaga. she recommend me to used salicylic acid (Duofilm) its P350 sa mercury. Tapos babalik ako sakanya for check up every week.

    sabi nila pwedeng makuwa din sa foot spa yung warts.

  11. kagandahan_03 says:

    upon reading your comments… i’m doing all the home care procedures… i guess effective naman. i’m currently using the “duofilm” and at the same time with callus trimmer… sa ngayon feeling ko natutuyo na sya kasi medyo na lessen ang pain while walking. pero kapag walang nangyari d2… malamang i need to come to my dermatologist and ipapakayod ko na talaga to! haaayyyyzzzz =(

  20. pink lady says:

    mga ilang aaw b to bago gumaling?

  21. pink lady says:

    ilang araw po ba bago gumaling ung sainyo?

  22. ruthie says:

    @puppy,
    “Magkano po ang pa casteurize ng Kulugo? pls. answer my question.”

    actually I don’t know how much. Covered kasi ung cauterization ng health card ko, courtesy of the company I’m currently working. You can call you hospital and ask for the Derma department. Un na lang siguro.

    Or if you want, you can use the gamot muna bago surgery

    @pink lady,
    “ilang araw po ba bago gumaling ung sainyo?”
    Ung paa with surgery? SUS! 3 weeks ata un or more..kasi lagi me umaalis for work kaya di agad siguro nagaling…
    Pero ung me gamot lang, within one week, nakita ko na agad ung difference…

  23. kazama ken says:

    help me po,, bkit po ung sakin hndi masakit?? ang tagal nya na sakin cguro mga 2years na sya,, isa lng nmn sya.. kya lng natatakot ako! para lng syang kalyo tapos felling ko may laman sya,, natatakot akong kutkutin,,? matang isda din po ba kya ito?? help me pls,,, salamat po.

  24. ruthie says:

    usually yung mga foot warts or matang isda, masakit pag binabad…baka naman kalyo lang sya…kung di naman masakit at di naman lumalaki…hayaan mo n lang siguro..wag mo na lang kutkutin…or mabuti pa kaya check it up with your derma to be sure…

    i don’t know what’s the real cause of this matang isda, actually nalaman ko nga lang ung term or tawag sa kanya nung sinabi sakin nung parents ko, sinbukan ko s’yang tanggalin through nail cutter, kaso the more mo s’ya itrim the more kumakapal, and masakit s’ya, nakakabahala na nga kasi pagtingin ko may new 2 warts na nag-appear sa same foot (right foot) ko, i don’t know kung pano ito patatanggal, i have it for months na

    hi to everyone!

    pinakamabuti talaga is you check with your derma…di na kasi tama ung magtiis pag sobrang sakit…

    pero wag nyo na pa cauterize kasi mas mahirap, ask for the best medicine to cure it, baka ngayon me mas magaling pa sa salicylic acid na nagamit ko…pero effective talaga un pramis!

  31. Imperfect Me says:

    Good Morning Everyone!

    Thank you at nahanap ko tong site nyo.. atleast I have an idea na regarding with what i have on my foot..

    Noong una kase para syang pimples n may nana sa loob then hindi ko sya pinutok kase baka mainfect dahil nasa work ako then the other day nakita ko n lang sya na butas na.. inignore ko kase kala ko simpleng pimples lang.. then napansin ko mejo lumalaki sya, mas maliit lang sya ngaun ng konti sa 5cents kaya nga dun na ko nag start magworry..

    Yung sakin kase palalim tapos malambot ung ibabaw nya.. tinry ko gupitin ng nail cutter kaso hindi ko mapadugo, masakit eh.. ung warts or matang isda nyo ba naka-umbok or palalim din?

  32. Imperfect Me says:

    kusa bang babalik ung outer layer ng skin natin sa paa once n gumaling na ung matang isda? nandidiri kase ako pag nakikita ko sya eh.. para kase syang itlog ng palaka na sobrang liliit tpos may itim n tuldok..

  33. Erick says:

  35. ruthie says:

    @Erick – thanks for the comment, please give feedback kung anong nangyari sa pag gamot mo…

    @JC – sabi ba ng doktor mo, you have to watch it ng maligamgam na tubig and use safeguard white, then bago lagyan ng corn plaster at nung effective na salysilic acid, dapat binabad muna ung foot sa maligamgam na water?

    @Imperfect Me – yes babalik dun ung layer nung skin….sa akin kasi bumalik eh… :)

  37. Erick says:

    Tama si Ruthie,,,

    you have to soak ung foot mo sa maligamgam, mas mainit mas ok (ung tolerable lang na init for you) then apply konting petroleum jelly lang sa gilid nung affected area para hindi madamay ung ibang part ng skin tapos cover ng tape..

    sabi ng derma ko, don’t use gasa mas ok ang tape kasi napupunta lang sa gasa ung salicilyc..

    btw Ruthie thanks again.

  38. regieliza says:

    Saken poh kasi sa binti ko mismo.. Nung una para lang syang brown spot..
    Then lumki sya ng lumaki.. 2years na to sa binti ko..
    Nung lumaki na sya na mas malaki pa sa pamintang buo..
    Nagdecide na kame ng asawa ko na sunugin or pasuin ng sigarilyo..
    Sobrang sakit tlga.. Pero tiniis ko..
    Nawala naman un upper part nya..
    Akala ko magaling na.. Pero after 2months lumaki sya lolo at ngayon kasing laki na sya
    ng 10cents.. Huhu,,

    owkei lang ba kung gamitin ko ung ordinaring salicylic acid instead of using
    the duofilm?? Tanxx pohh in advance..

  44. ronskii says:

    I have the same wart on my right foot and suffering from the pain for almost three months now. I don’t know what to do with it. A friend told me to cure it in natural way like soak it with Apple Cider Vinegar which I did for 2 days now but it just worsen the pain. The callous got bigger. Would salicylic acid work to cure foot warts? I need proof on this pls….If u can post a photo of it cured by the acid that would be nice…. thanks much

    Ako may alam ako mabisa tlga at wla ka pang gagastusin di mo na kailangan pumnta pa sa doktor at bumili ng kung ano ano at wla ka pang mararamdaman ng sobrang sakit pati dugo wala pero kailangan mo lng maghntay…
    Ito ang procedure :
    1. kumuha ng isang pirasong buhok
    2. itali sa paligid ng iyong kulugo
    3.kada araw higpitan mo

    Sigurado tanggal yan pag sinunod mo simple lng wla pang gastos .
    TRY nyo guys TRUE TLGA !!!

    • ruthie says:

      Hi Nestor!

      Sorry late reply. based on your description para nga syang matang isda. I’m not a doctor so di ko rin sure kung ano ung meron sayo.

      Ung matang isda, masakit talaga sya lalo na pag tinatapak…

      Wala namang nana nung pinagamot ko ung foot warts ko, ang meron lang sya is parang matubig sa loob at puro white. ano na inilagay mo after mong binutas?

  51. bOY says:

    Matang isda – are we referring to the same thing? iyong parang bukol nakalyo na may butas sa gitna at hindi maanda ang amoy?
