Advice on anger management – and dealing with warts.

Q.Why do I feel so angry all the time and how do I deal with it?

A. Anger is different for everyone. There are things that won’t bother people at all, but for others ignite an anger that can get out of control. This can cause problems with relationships, work and even the law.

There are a lot of things that make us feel angry, for example, being treated unfairly and feeling powerless, feeling threatened, attacked, or disrespected by others. It could be those stressful day to day things such as paying bills or rush hour traffic.

Anger can also be a part of grief. If you are struggling to come to terms with losing someone close to you, the charity Cruse Bereavement Care Scotland can help.

Long-term, unresolved anger is linked to health conditions such as high blood pressure, depression, anxiety and heart disease. It’s important to deal with anger in a healthy way that doesn’t harm you or others.

Q. My daughter is prone to warts and verrucas, is there anything I can do to manage this?

A. To help prevent a wart or a verruca you should not touch other people’s warts; not share towels etc with someone who has a wart; not share shoes or socks with someone who has a verruca; avoid scratching or picking your wart or verruca because it will encourage spread; take care when shaving because the virus can be spread easily if you cut yourself; keep your feet dry, and change your socks every day.

Leaving the wart to go away by itself is one option. However, you may want to consider treatment if it is painful, in an awkward place or causing you distress or embarrassment.

If you have a wart on your face, you may need to speak with your GP to see if you need to see a specialist for treatment.
