You may have heard this said a few times and may have wondered what it was all about. This is usually said about telling a story in such a way as to reveal secrets. They say they will expose everything, warts, and everything, and it means that they will not hide even the worst things. The expression comes from how one usually tries to camouflage any type, such as warts and large moles, other such skin conditions. We don’t want the whole world to see what we might consider an imperfection.
We all have a few moles on our bodies, and there are even those people are famous for a very prominent mole. They can add a distinctive feature to your face and are not necessarily unattractive. On the other hand, a wart is usually an unsightly prominence on your skin, which can also have growing hairs, making it even more hideous. There is also the old superstitious connection between warts and witches. Only this will ensure that anyone who has a wart will feel self-conscious and try to remove it as soon as possible.
There is a story of old wives that many people claim will remove a wart. This is to cut a potato in half and then rub the wart with the cut side in half. This half of the potato is then meant to be buried in the ground on the night of the full moon. The superstition is that as the potato rots, the wart will rot and fall off. For many people, this in itself is pure rot, but others swear it works.
However, these days there is no need to resort to such an old method of removing warts. All you have to do is contact a clinic where you will have cosmetic surgery and set up a wart removal appointment. This procedure can be done without involving cosmetic surgery by freezing the wart or drying it with chemicals. It all depends on the location, size, and type of wart.
My sister used to have warts on her hands, and my mother treated her with medication. The funny thing is that she married a man who also had a few warts on his back, and we used to tease her by coincidence. Eventually, her husband removed them with the help of a doctor. These days there are skin and cosmetic laser treatments for a wide range of skin conditions. The use of lasers is becoming more widespread in many different fields of medicine. They are also used in eye care, lasers being a popular way to perform corrective surgery on the eyes, eliminating the need to wear glasses, also for treatments that give you skin rejuvenation. We all want to look attractive and young.
