A note about How to Treat Genital Warts - Tips and Treatment Overview
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
Left untreated in women, genital warts can spread up into the vagina in severe cases, and they can even cause bleeding and irritation through normal daily activity. Also, if a woman has genital warts and gives birth, the virus can be spread to the baby and cause health problems.
In men, these warts can become irritated and sore, so it's important that if you have genital warts, you treat them properly so that you can get on with your life.
What you should do if you think you have them
Genital warts can appear as cauliflower like clusters around the anus, vagina, or penis, as well as around soft tissues of the surrounding areas. You might also find that they appear individually and have flat tops.
They are transferred through contact with the infected genital, which is usually sexual activity. They can be transferred to the mouth and can be transferred through non penetrating sexual contact, as well.
The human papilloma virus (HPV) is to blame for these warts, and while the warts themselves sometimes go away on their own, it's more likely that they will spread before they disappear. In many cases, this type of wart will not go away unless properly treated.
In learning how to treat genital warts, you need to know that you should never scratch or pick at these warts, as this can cause them to spread to you or a person that you are with. Instead, you should make an appointment with your health care professional. They will properly diagnose your problem and also make sure that you don't have another sexually transmitted disease (STD), such as herpes or syphilis.
How they are treated
In learning how to treat genital warts, you should also know that some strains of HPV can lead to cervical cancer in women; it is thus important to seek medical attention for your genital warts.
Many health care professionals believe that proper treatment of this condition can actually eliminate the HPV virus that causes genital warts; however, some treatments can be painful and cause scarring, which is why it's important to let your health care practitioner decide which treatment might be best for you; in other words, how to treat genital warts in a way that suits you the most.
How to treat genital warts?
Your doctor may apply a topical medication to the genital warts that could scar, or they might offer you a prescription wart remover that has been specially made for the genital area. These formulas can be less irritating to sensitive areas. You should never use an over the counter wart remover for your genital warts, as these formulas can cause serious damage.
For serious warts that won't go away easily, your doctor may recommend a surgical procedure to help you get rid of them, which may require anesthesia.
Other than learning about how to treat genital warts, in most cases, doing your part to prevent the spread of the HPV virus in the first place is your best bet. A vaccine is available for girls who are not yet sexually active that can help to prevent the spread of this virus and prevent contraction of many of the sexually transmitted forms of this virus; however, it's important to also practice safe sex with any new partner you might have.
Even when genital warts clear up on their own, it's necessary to remember that you can still spread the virus to a partner, so if you are with someone new, your best form of protection is to use condoms and make sure to be honest with your partner if you do have this condition.
