Genital warts area kind of viral disease, which is accompanied by damage to the skin and mucous membranes and is characterized by proliferation of epithelial tissue. Often genital warts or warts affect a person at a young age, when sex is often encountered. Of course, with this disease it is necessary to consult a specialist in order to cure the disease in time.
The causes of the appearance of genital warts
Genital warts or pointedwarts appear when the human papillomavirus is activated in the body. In skin cells and mucous membranes, changes begin to occur, as a result of which the tissues proliferate, and neoplasms appear on the surface. For effective treatment should identify the reasons. The most common cause is the transmission of the virus during sexual intercourse or when a newborn passes through the birth canal of a sick mother. Getting on the open skin and mucous membranes, the virus is gradually introduced into new cells, which leads to infection. If a person has pronounced symptoms, then he is a danger to the people around him. But the danger and complexity of the disease lies in the fact that genital warts for quite a long period of time can not manifest themselves at all. A large number of people have a virus inside the body, which is in a latent state. Of course, there are other reasons. As a rule, with good health and high immune defense of the body, this disease is quite rare. Therefore, to treat genital warts or genital warts, you should first increase immunity, as a local removal of neoplasms will not give a result. Reproduction of the virus inside the body will lead to the fact that in the near future condylomas will appear again.
What are the most known symptoms of the disease?
The easiest form with a favorable outcomeis a situation where a person is a carrier of a virus. The disease itself does not manifest itself. In this case, genital warts will not be needed, since the body is able to produce antibodies to the active propagation of the virus. The more severe form of the disease has unpleasant symptoms in the form of specific rashes. Common genitalia are common: in men - foreskin, penis head, scrotum, for women - clitoris, labia, vagina, cervix, urethra. Quite often a person is affected by the perineal region, anus, rectum, oral cavity. This is due to the fact that the disease can be transmitted not only in the classical sex. Oral and anal contacts that lead to infection are common. The rash itself can differ in appearance. As a rule, these are the malignant formations on a thin stem that protrude above the surface of the skin. The size can range from a match head to a large nut. When merging several formations into one appearance of the disease, it resembles cauliflower, differing only in a pinkish or reddish tinge. Very dangerous genital warts during pregnancy, as the infection spreads to the future child. When a child is born, the risk of skin lesions is high. Therefore, if any neoplasms are found, it is advisable to treat warts. The removal of genital warts is only necessary after an accurate diagnosis. For detection it is required not only to outwardly identify the symptoms, but also to pass the appropriate tests. First of all, it's blood and smear, the results of which determine the presence of a sexually transmitted infection. A thorough examination requires a cytological examination of the material.
Effective treatment of genital warts
After revealing the reason for the appearance of sprouting ongenital warts need to start to heal. Of course, it is impossible to completely eliminate genital warts with weakened immunity. Surface removal of the affected areas does not give a result, because after a certain time the warts will appear again and again. The method of treatment is largely determined by the nature of the development and course of the disease. Genital warts effectively remove the chemical method, which is the treatment of formations with special chemicals. But this treatment is used only for single and few rashes. And in no case it is impossible to apply the medication yourself, as in the absence of experience and knowledge such treatment will lead to the formation of scars on the surface of the skin and mucous membranes. The second method is considered to be surgical removal, in which genital warts are excised by a scalpel or urethroscope (in case of proliferation in the urethra). With volumetric rashes it is advisable to apply the physical method of treatment of warts, which include the use of a laser or an electric current. It should be noted that condylomas are treated in a complex manner. And during the period of treatment it is necessary to completely exclude sex. This makes it possible to heal more rapidly wounded and get rid of the disease. If the warts do not heal in time, then the situation can be complicated by unpleasant phenomena. For example, it is festering warts, traumatizing when washing or wearing clothes. In some cases, such neoplasms degenerate into an oncological disease. In order for genital warts to disappear and not reappear in the treatment, it is advisable to prevent sexual contact with unverified partners who can carry HPV, use protective equipment (condoms, special chemical solutions or candles), be observed regularly with a gynecologist or urologist and take tests for verification.
