Genital Warts Treatment Options
Common warts found on phalanges and other parts of the body are not the same as genital warts and are caused by different human papillomavirus types that infect the skin. The viral particles penetrate the skin and mucosal surfaces through microscopic abrasions in the genital area that occurs during sexual activity. Once the cell is invaded by the human papillomavirus, a quiet period of months to years may occur during which, there is no evidence of infection and no symptoms at all. Eventually, multiple fleshy, gray or pinkish, cauliflower like skin growth will be observed around the genitals or around the anus. Genital warts can disappear on their own without treatment although there is no way to tell if they will disappear or grow larger. But there are several genital warts treatment options depending on the size and the location of the warts. The medical professional may choose to apply special creams or solutions to the warts. Some genital warts can be removed by either freezing, burning or using a laser treatment. But if none of the options will work out and no response from the infected area, a surgery may be suggested to remove the warts. It is important to remember that there is a chance that the genital warts will reappear after treatment because the type of human papillomavirus that cause them is still present that unfortunately, there is no known treatment already discovered or options to totally eliminate the human papillomavirus in the system of the person infected.
