Human Papilloma Virus - How Not Have It

Apr 8, 2008
Human papilloma viruses are a particular type of viruses, which affect the skin, as well as the mucous membranes, especially the genital ones. There are around one hundred and fifty such viruses, and the most common transmission way is through sexual contact. The vulgar manifestations of this virus are commonly known as moles or even worse, warts.

Diverse types of viruses of Human Papilloma are inclined to develop on definite areas of the skin. Take note that some of these viruses can cause cancer. These types of viruses are high risk level and can set off skin cancer in the genital areas for men and women alike.

Some types are viral viruses which can be located in the same ulcerations that they caused. The lesions if constantly exposed to solar rays can develop into malignant skin cancers. The development can be protracted and will not be apparent for a long time. The common manifestations of the virus are the moles and warts that look like growths of the skin. On some occasions, the small thrombosis blood vessels can be seen because of their transparency.

The growths are often found on hands and fingers. When it grows on the palms and feet, they can cause so much discomfort and can erase the natural lines of the skin. There are basically two shapes of the moles, which make the flat mole different from the vulgar ones. The moles have smooth surface and very tiny, with measurement of only a few millimetres. They grow frequently on children's skin generally confined on the face, legs, and hands.

Hair-shaped moles are fine growths, which have the same color as the skin and they are usually located especially at the neck level. Contamination occurs after direct contact with contaminated individuals. Sexual contact is what causes them to spread. The transfer of the virus happens while having direct contact with traumatized areas of the skin.

The growths can appear more often on the skin of the people using public pools, or on the skin of the people working in a certain field, like for example butchers. So, the sexual contact is not the only transmission mean of these viruses.

Individuals with multiple sex partners are at great risk of contracting these sexually transmitted diseases. It can also be transmitted by the mother to the baby. If the mother has genital growths, the baby could suffer from respiratory infections as it could possibly breathe in the virus during the birth process.

The sexual transmittable form of the virus is the most common sexual transmittable disease. The incubation period, meaning the time from exposure - contact - to the appearance of the lesions varies between two and nine months. All this time, the infected individual can transmit the virus to other people as well. So, the one thing we should all keep in mind when starting a sexual relationship with a new partner is to protect ourselves as well as we can.
