Before revealing some options for Genital Warts Treatment, here are some basics about them:

 What are genital warts?

Genital warts fall into the category of common sexually transmitted diseases – STD, or sexually transmitted infections – STI. They are caused by HPV – the human papillomavirus. HPV exists in more than 100 forms, and can cause various categories of warts, besides genital warts.

 Are genital warts cancer or can they cause cancer?

The HPV infection is actually common according to most medicine researchers, and only in rare cases it may develop into cancer, sometimes not even raising symptoms such as pain or itchiness.

 Symptoms and appearance

genital warts appear as raised bumps, with a smooth or rough surface, and they can be described as resembling the top of a cauliflower

– they sometimes cause itchiness

– the average size of a wart ranges between 1 and 10 millimeters

– only one wart may appear or you can get them in clusters

 Rare symptoms

– vaginal bleeding during or after intercourse

– vaginal discharge increase

– dampness in the genital area close to the warts

You can get genital warts if:

– you have multiple sex partners

– you do not use protection

– you have a viral infection and you are under a lot of stress

-your immune system is weakened

 Genital Warts Treatment Options

1) Do nothing

According to medical statistics, approximately 65% of war infections can clear up within two years, by themselves, without actually doing something. But this is not a recommended option for obvious reasons.

2) Treat it yourself at home

Of course, the best way to get rid of a medical problem is to go to the doctor’s office. But, sometimes people do not choose to do this and usually it’s because they are uncomfortable doing so and they opt for over-the-counter treatment to apply at home. Apple cider vinegar and salicylic acid are two popular and efficient home treatment options. Castor oil, tea tree oil, vitamin E and garlic, as well as sticking to a healthy diet have also worked on some people.

3) Professional medical help

Cryotherapy is among the top treatments for genital warts. The warts are frozen with liquid nitrogen. The treatment can last up to 4 months and regular sessions are required in order to see results.

Freezing the warts works, and so does burning them. Laser therapy is also known as an efficient way to make genital warts disappear, but not entirely, because scarring may appear during this kind of treatment.

There are many Genital Warts Treatment options out there and medicine has gone a long way; although seeing a professional may be intimidating when having this kind of problem, it is always the best choice.
