Removing Genital Warts
Genital warts, also called venereal warts, are caused by HPV virus and affect the top layer of the skin around the genital area. This type of virus is spread only through sexual contact with an infected person. In all cases of suspected or confirmed genital warts, you really should see a doctor. You owe it not just for your own health, but for the health of anyone you might ever have sex with.
Genital warts can appear in tiny clusters of bumps and small raised growths or can spread into a large area of the penis or the female genital area. In men, genital warts may be found on the tip of the penis, on the shaft of the penis, on the scrotum or on the anus area. In women, genital wart can be found inside and outside of the vagina. Some women develop genital warts around the cervix area, the uterus and around the anus. According to experts, since the genitalia of female is open and more exposed to infection compared to that of male, females are more at risk of developing complications than their male counterparts when it comes to genital warts.
Although genital warts are very unsightly, they are not really dangerous. In fact, most warts will disappear without treatment. If the immune system of the person infected is strong, the immune system will most likely fight off the virus that caused the wart. In most cases, the auto immune system of the human body can kill the warts in 8 to 13 months from the time it first appeared on the skin. Unfortunately, the immune system of the human body cannot totally eradicate the HPV virus that caused the warts. Therefore, there is no assurance that the warts will not come back after they have disappeared. Studies showed that the growth of warts can be very unpredictable and nobody can really be certain as to whether or not these types of skin diseases will recur or not after some time.
