Unless until its not painful don't disturb the removal site. Most probably it can be small bone fragment left inside the wound. If it doesn't pain but irritates tongue or other soft tissue causing ulcers then you can get it removed but its not so serious and it will not require another surgery. No need to worry for that.

Why Do Wisdom Teeth Gets Impacted?

Why Do Wisdom Teeth Gets Impacted?

Nowadays, the food we eat are finer, so our jaw bone grow smaller, but the size of our teeth remain the same. Wisdom teeth are the ones which come out the last. There usually will be inadequate room for their eruption. As a result, they grow impacted, making your more susceptible to dental issues like caries and inflammation. You have to visit a dentist and get a thorough check-up to find out whether your wisdom teeth need extracting or not. If so, have them removed in a timely manner, in order to prevent bigger problems down the road.

Genital Warts - How To Handle It With Ayurveda?

Genital Warts - How To Handle It With Ayurveda?

Warts are small fleshy growths on human skin, which can happen anywhere over the body and are usually harmless, although they could be unsightly and if growing in certain areas, may be painful. Genital warts belong to that variety. Most warts are caused by HPV or the human Papilloma virus and genital warts are no different.

Causes of Genital warts

Genital warts are usually contracted during sexual intercourse. During intercourse, tearing of skin and contact with an infected individual will pass of the virus to another person. This is how HPV is transmitted, which may result in genital warts. Other than being unsightly, genital warts can be painful if they are in position when they have friction against clothing and they may also obstruct the flow of urine requiring them to be removed expediently.

Treatment of genital warts in ayurveda

Ayurveda has some great remedies to cure this problem. Let us have a look at a few of them:

1. The onion and salt mixture remedy: This natural remedy has primarily two elements, which are onion and salt. To make this mixture you slice two onions, and sprinkle them with salt before leaving them overnight. In the morning, mash the onions into a thick paste and then pass it through a filter or sieve to extract juice. Apply this juice on the warts periodically for a few weeks until they either shrivel or fall off.

2. The garlic paste remedy: This is another easy remedy which if applied consistently can bring great results fairly quickly. In this method you need to take a few cloves of garlic, crush them to a paste, apply this paste on the warts, cover the affected area with a bandage and leave it for an hour. After an hour remove the bandage and wash of the area. Repeat this for a few weeks and you should see the results.

3. The potato remedy: This remedy would require you to follow the steps multiple times a day. Take a potato and cut it into slices. Use these slices to rub the affected area. This has to be followed up multiple times a day, preferable at least 3 or more times. Doing this for 2 to 3 weeks will bring results where the warts will either shrink up or fall off.
