How to Get Rid of Genital Warts

Almost every day I have been asked the same question: “how to get rid of genital warts”. The number of cases of genital warts is increasing every year and it is not just because they are extremely contagious. The main reason is a lot of times there are no symptoms of the infection and people who has them might spread the virus without knowing they are.

Genital warts are one of the most common sexual transmitted disease (STD) and they are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). They are soft growths and form in clusters. When they grow the most common symptoms you may experience are pain, itch and discomfort. The area where they appear are:

  • penis, scrotum, groin, thighs, anus (men)
  • vagina, cervix, anus (women)

Genital warts can also grow on the mouth, lips or tongue if they are caused by oral sexual contact with an infected person. The HPV can in fact be spread trough any sexual activity especially the ones involving exchange of body fluids. This is why you should always be careful and and use protection when you have a new partner or if you are very promiscuous.

How to cure genital warts?

Warts can sometimes go away with time without any treatment. I strongly discourage you wait for them to disappear because during when they are present the risk of passing them to someone else or to infect other areas of your body is very high. To avoid this you should remove them as soon as you know you have been infected. The are two main ways you can choose from if you decide to use common medication: topical remedies or surgeries.

Topical remedies are used either to remove directly the warts killing the infected tissues or to stimulate your immune system to fight the virus from the inside. The medicine that doctors usually prescribes are:

  • imiquimod
  • podofilox
  • trichloroacetic acid

You should know that all of these medication are focused only on removing the warts and not on eliminating the HPV which has caused them. This means that even if you successfully remove your warts, it is going to be only matter of time until warts will form again. The only way to stop warts from growing on your body is to eliminate the virus as well.

Surgical removal of genital warts

Another possibility you have if you want to rely on common medicine is to remove your condyloma acuminatum (another name for genital warts) with surgical procedures. There are few options you can choose from:

  • Excision: warts are cut off with a surgical knife (scalpel).
  • Laser surgery: an intense beam of light burns and destroys the warts.
  • Electrocautery: a medical probe heated with electric current eliminate the warts.
  • Cryotherapy: warts are frozen with liquid nitrogen and then removed.

As you can guess, all of these surgical procedures are very dangerous because they have to be applied on a very sensitive area for several times. What you may not know is that they are also very expensive and they can leave visible scars. Like the topical treatments, the worst downside is that none of the procedures above is going to eradicate the HPV from your body.

What are warts?

Featured

The first step to learn how to kill warts is to answer to the questions: what are warts and what causes them? Warts are viral growths caused by the human papillomavirus. They can be formed anywhere on the skin and usually do not represent a serious medical condition. You should know that they are only benign tumors and non-cancerous ones. The way that warts survive on your body is through tiny blood vessels that grows deep inside your skin.

Warts are not just unpleasant to look at and often very painful, but usually it can take some time before you will find a way to remove them. This is because there are different type of them. If you want to find an effective cure and get rid of your warts, it will be very important to understand which type you have been infected with.

Main types of warts and their transmission

There are 5 main types of warts. Each one has different characteristics and can develop almost on every part of the body. This is a list of all of them and their principal characteristics:

Flat Warts – This type of warts normally grows on arms, face or legs. A flat wart is generally flatter and smoother than other types and has two characteristic colors: pink or light brown. They are very common in children.

Plantar Warts – Plantar warts grow on the sole of the foot. Usually, they have a light tone or a slightly yellow color and they are form as hard growths on the skin. Plantar warts cause pain when walking (because of the pressure of the body on them) and they feel like  having a little stone inside your shoe.

Filiform Warts – These warts commonly form around the mouth, nose, eyes or beard. Filiform warts are generally flesh-colored, narrow and protrude above the surface of the skin. One of their characteristics is that they spread very fast.

Periungual Warts – This particular type usually develop around or under fingernails or toenails (in the latter case they are also called subungual warts). They appear like any common warts but they are usually very painful and more difficult to cure, because of the place where they grow.

Genital Warts – They form in the genital area and manifest as small growths. Genital warts vary in thickness, from soft to hard, and color, from light pink to brown or yellow. They are not painful but they create a lot of discomfort and they are very contagious.

All types of warts described above are caused by the same virus: the human papillomavirus (HPV). You should know that, there are more than 100 strains of this virus and they can be transmitted through direct or indirect contact. This means that you can either get infected touching someone who has warts or touching an object or a surface that has been previously infected.

Also, it is very important to be very careful when touching your warts. This is because, it is very easy to spread the virus to other parts of your body if you are being cautious. So, I strongly suggest not to pick or scratch your warts and wash your hands immediately if you ever touch them. This will make sure you won’t spread the virus all over your body.

Warts on Face

Warts can form on every part of your body and they can be very difficult to remove especially when they grow on the face or the neck. They are a very common skin infection and they are not dangerous if treated in time. Warts on face are small raised bumps which have a color that ranges from red/ pink to yellow/brown. They are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV) and they should not be touched or scratched if you want to avoid spreading the virus on yourself or to others.

What causes facial warts

Infections from facial warts are very common because they are very easy to spread. The are two possible ways for the virus to move from a person to another. One is through direct contact that is touching someone infected. The other possibility is through indirect contact when you get the virus using, for example, a towel or skin products which have been previously infected. This is why you should be very careful when you share this kind of personal object.

The HPV, which is the virus behind warts on face, is not dangerous but it is extremely contagious. Once you are infected with warts you should remove them immediately because even if they are not harmful to your health the virus can be easily spread to the rest of your body or to other people. In case you accidentally touch any warts on your face I strongly recommend washing your hands to avoid any possible self-contamination or to infect things around you. 

How to get rid of warts on face

There are a number of way to remove a wart on face. The most common treatment is salicylic acid. This acid is used on warts to peel away the infected skin. You will have to use it for several weeks and the side effects are many (burning/dry/reddening skin). The main issue with this treatment is you have to apply it on a very sensitive area. Also, facial warts cause already a lot of embarrassment and having your skin peeling away it is not going to be very pleasant.

Another possible solution is cryotherapy which allows to freeze the warts and make them to fall off. The treatment has to be done for several times and it can lead to damage nerve cells or to scarring. In addition, the procedure is not only very expensive but it can also causes infection. What I suggest is you take a moment before having any one of these treatments because they can have a serious impact on your skin and still do not eliminate the HPV from your body. But what if I tell you there is a way to remove the virus permanently from your body and to remove your warts without using procedure that can harm your skin?
