A glamorous grandmother has a big wart on her face & # 39; grated & # 39; in The Bad Skin Clinic.
The episode of tonight's Quest Red show focuses on Lili, who lives in the UK, who is the life and soul of the party, and a born entertainer.
Although her vibrant and infectious personality remains unaffected, she has lived with a big, excellent sign on her face for the past 10 years.
& # 39; It's like a wart, you know? And it continues to raise its ugly head & # 39 ;, says Lili, who says her dating is getting in the way,

While the wart sticks out, it doesn't cause Lili pain – but it does affect her self-confidence. The grandmother, pictured with Dr. Emma, is happy with the results
Dr. Emma (photo left) diagnoses the wart as Seborrhoeic Keratosis, which is completely benign and is only thickening of the skin that people get as they age
The large wart sits on her right cheek just below her ear and disturbs her and has prevented her from changing her hairstyle.
& # 39; I don't want to share this ugly thing with anyone & # 39 ;, she explains. & # 39; I always have to cover it. It must absolutely come off. Once the wart is gone, it will be another me. Spotless! & # 39;
The wart has a protruding head that protrudes, and although it does not cause Lili any pain, it affects her self-confidence.
& # 39; Sometimes I want to super glue it, to tell you the truth, & # 39; she continues. & # 39; Sometimes I want to take some scissors and cut it off – but I know better than that. & # 39;
The glamorous grandmother (photo) reveals that her two-year-old grandson has the wart & # 39; ouch! & # 39; – because he is probably afraid of it

Ready to have the wart removed, Lili checks in for her appointment with Dr. Emma Craythorne at 152 Harley Street.
During her consultation with the expert, Lili reveals how the birthmark influences her daily life.
WHAT IS SEBORRHIAN KERATOSE
Seborrheic keratosis is one of the most common non-cancerous skin growth in older adults.
A seborrheic keratosis usually appears as a brown, black or light brown growth on the face, chest, shoulders or back. The growth has a waxy, flaky, slightly raised appearance. Seborrheic keratosis does not become cancer and is not believed to be related to sun exposure, but they may look like skin cancer.
Seborrheic keratoses are normally painless and require no treatment. You can decide to have them removed if they get irritated by clothing or for cosmetic reasons.
& # 39; My grandson, he calls it "ouch!" He's only two years old, so he's probably scared, & she admits.
& # 39; It's very uncomfortable, not just physically, but even psychologically worse. & # 39;
While she sits down at Lili to take a good look at her skin, Dr. Emma diagnoses her quickly and confidently.
& # 39; If you go up here with your hand over your head, you can feel these little bumps & she says.
& # 39; They are called Seborrhoeic Keratosis – they are completely benign, but they are just thickening of the skin and we get them over the years. & # 39;
& # 39; And if we get to the & # 39; ouchy & # 39; come, that is another one of this Seborrhoeic Keratosis. It rather looks like a brain-like type of structure on top. It has this very stuck appearance. & # 39;
Happy with her diagnosis, Dr. Emma offers to remove some of the more prominent bumps on Lili's skin, including the wart on her cheek, by scraping them down.
Lost and safely prepared for the procedure, Lili cannot hide her excitement.
& # 39; I'm going to be beautiful in 20 minutes, & # 39; she smiles, before Dr. Emma adds: & # 39; Nicer. & # 39;
Lili describes the sound of scraping away the wart and says: & It makes a very funny sound. Like when you grate something! & # 39; Pictured, Dr. Emma with Lili
While Lili admits she was pretty earlier, after removing her wart, she says: & # 39; I am irresistible! & # 39;
While she is preparing for surgery, Lili cannot help but Dr. Emma and her staff entertain while she starts singing to calm her nerves.
After a few tunes, Dr. Emma goes to work and expertly scrapes the wart away.
HOW CAN I GET A RIDE FROM WARTEN?
Warts are caused by a viral infection. Most of the time they eventually disappear on their own, but this process can take many months or sometimes years – so it is not surprising that most people are like you and want to speed up nature a little.
However, there is no quick solution. A selection of treatments that contain the powerful chemicals salicylic acid or lactic acid. These burn the infected tissue, but they must be used with caution because they are very irritating and can cause blistering on normal skin.
You must apply them carefully as directed on the package – usually every day and this must be repeated every day for several weeks.
Alternatively, you can ask your doctor if liquid nitrogen treatment is available locally. This freezes the infected tissue, but again, different treatments at intervals of three to four weeks are often required.
So I'm afraid that when it comes to wart treatments, you have to be patient, but if you are persistent, they will eventually disappear.
& # 39; It makes a very funny sound & # 39 ;, says Lili. & # 39; Like when you grate something! & # 39;
After scribbling away the wart and several other bumps, Lili comes from the Bad Skin Clinic with a big shiny smile on her face.
& # 39; I am ready for a glass of champagne, & # 39; she says.
Three weeks after the operation, Lili is delighted with the results of her surgery that have hardly left any traces.
& # 39; "Ouch" is no longer there, as you can see, "she jokes. & # 39; This is all due to Dr. Emma. See? No blemish, nothing. I knew I was pretty before, but now I am irresistible! & # 39;
The Bad Skin Clinic will be broadcast tonight at 22:00 on Quest Red and the QuestOD app
