A note about Mouth Warts - What They Are, Causes, Symptoms, Treatment and Remedies
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.

Although they aren't painful for the most part, they can become irritated due to certain foods you might eat, biting them, or even your tongue can cause them to become irritated.
Oral warts are usually small and, often, they don't cluster in large groups, but sometimes, they can. They can be small and dome shaped or they can appear to be cauliflower type clusters with a whitish color to them. Sometimes, you'll find that they are flat topped. Most of the time, mouth warts appear white or covered with a whitish coating.
How you get them
All warts are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). There are about 100 different strains of this virus that can cause warts of all kinds, and about 30 strains of the HPV virus are considered to be sexually transmitted diseases, and this leads us to how you get mouth warts.
The sad truth is that, while you can get oral warts from kissing someone who has such warts, you will most likely contract this strain of the HPV virus from "mouth to genital contact". In some cases, the virus can be made worse by bad oral care.
Can you get rid of them?
Many people say that this type of wart will disappear over time; however, it's very important to get them treated and removed because they can actually spread down the throat. Treatments for this type of warts include freezing them, injection with interpheron alpha, or surgery. The removal methods will depend on how severe your case is and how large the warts are.
You should know that while you can have these warts removed, the virus will still be in your system, so you could wind up getting mouth warts again. Most of the time, the body will eventually fight this virus so that you never end up suffering from mouth warts again, but in the meantime, it's important to be diligent about good oral health and make sure that you have any additional warts removed as soon as they appear.
The best way to fight a mouth wart is to avoid getting it in the first place. If you choose to practice oral sex, you should be safe about it and ensure that you use the right type of protection, such as condoms.
It's, however, necessary to remember that condoms don't always protect you from the HPV virus, so the best bet is to only be with someone whom you know very, very well, and make sure that you're totally honest with each other about any STDs which you may have or have had.
