HPV and Genital Warts Treatments

Aug 17, 2007
Do you have single or multiple cauliflower-like bumps in the areas of vagina, cervix, vulva, penis or the rectum? Are those signs soft, moist or flesh-colored?

If you have this kind of peculiarities, then it is the time to talk to a dermatologist as soon as possible; chances are you might be infected with the HPV.

HPV or the Human papillomavirus is very much instrumental for most of the sexually transmitted diseases (STI) in the world. There are at most 100 kinds of HPV of which only 30 are spread by the sexual contacts. If the warts are not properly cured, the outcome could be drastic.

The HPV causes the genital warts with barely any symptom, but just do not get worried. The genital warts, if diagnosed in time, can be curable without any tension so far.

The diagnosis is very simple and concise; it involves using the acetic acid to the infected area. The solution makes the infected area white. The wart becomes visible. Now, it is easier for the health care provider to take a sample tissue from the contaminated zone. That tissue will be further examined under a microscope. Therefore, the examiner can be certain to determine whether it has a cancerous form or not.

There is, obviously, no specific treatment for the warts. Those infections come naturally and fade out naturally after certain period, but sometimes the infection does not go away. For such circumstances, it is advisable for you seek the help of a dermatologist.

On the basis of the intensity of this virus the doctor will prescribe several medicines including Imiquimod cream, podophyllin antimitotic solution, podofilox solution, 5-fluorouracil cream and trichloroacetic acid.

Podophyllin antimitotic solution, 5-fluorouracil cream or the podofilox solutions are strictly prohibited in times of pregnancy, since there might be the chances that the skin might absorb the solutions which might cause birth defects in your baby.

Three kinds of known treatments are there: Freezing the warts by the liquid nitrogen, burning the warts by the electronic needle and Laser treatment. Now it is up to your consent and on your health adviser, which process you will opt for. Sometimes the physician will inject the antiviral drug alpha interferon to the warts-affected area. It is a traditional approach and those who can not afford to buy expensive drug, this method is good for them.

It is found that even if the warts have gone by the treatments, the virus can still remain in the body; it may come back anytime.
