Genital Warts

Genital warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). You should know that the HPV has more than 100 different strains and that more than 30 types can cause the formation of genital warts. Genital warts are also known as condyloma acuminatum and are transmitted through physical contact of private parts or with the transfer of infected genital fluids. Usually, this type of transmission takes place during vaginal, anal or oral sex, but it also possible to transmit the virus just with the contact of private parts, even without penetration.

genital wartsIf you have been diagnosed with genital warts or you may suspect you are having them, to protect your partner from possible infection I suggest you to stop any sexual activity and sexual contact until the warts are going to be completely removed.

When you get infected with genital warts is very common to feel very upset and depressed. But, you should not be too worry. They are very common and if treated in time and properly they do not cause any long term harm.

Genital warts symtoms and transmission

Venereal warts (another name for genital warts) are small growth that look like the shape of a cauliflower. Their main characteristic is that differently to other types like plantar warts or seed warts, they develop in clusters. They are usually not painful but can cause itch and discomfort. Genital warts can be a problem for both men and women, but women are more vulnerable to complications. The areas where they form on men are the scrotum and penis. On women they can develop in or around the vagina and vulva. In some cases when you are infected with anal warts, they can affect the areas around the anus and perineum.  

Genital warts are one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases (STD). The reason is a lot of people spread the virus without even knowing they have been infected. Not every time symptoms are shown and when they do it may be already passed several weeks from the infection. The only way to prevent the transmission from happening is to always use protection. However, the virus can be transmitted also through sexual activities that don’t involve penetration and through oral sex. In this case it means that it is possible to spread the virus to the partner’s mouth, lips and tongue.

How to cure genital warts?

Genital warts are very contagious and should be treated as soon as diagnosed. In some cases they can disappear without treatment, but waiting for them to disappear will increase drastically the risk to transmit the virus to others and to infect other parts of your body. This is why you must discover immediately how to get rid of genital warts. Below, you can find a list of treatments used to remove warts:

  • Podophyllin resin – this brown resin is used to stop the growth of warts cells. The resin is applied on the wart and washed away after 4 hours (sometimes earlier, if the area is too inflamed). Because the resin may cause damage to the skin and to healthy tissues, I recommended consulting a doctor before its use. This procedure should be completely avoided during pregnancy because it can hurt the baby.
  • Cryotherapy – the procedure uses liquid nitrogen to freeze and kill the warts. The treatment is very painful and to make sure the warts are completely removed you have to undergo at least 4-6 sessions.
  • Laser treatment – this procedure utilizes a beam of intense light to burn the warts and infected tissues. This treatment is expensive and can leave marks on the skin when the procedure is over.
  • Electrocautery – a medical probe heated with electric current is used to burn the warts and cauterize blood vessels. Electrocautery is one of the most painful method you can choose to remove warts and it is used only as a last resort.
  • Surgical excision – probably the most barbaric and dangerous treatment. The doctor will literally cut off the warts from the skin.

As you may guess all of these procedures are very painful considering the area where they have to be applied. Also, they are very expensive because you will have to undergo more than one treatment if you want to make sure the warts are completely removed from the skin. But these are not the only downsides. You should be aware that any of the treatments above can only eliminate the warts but they are not going to eradicate the human papillomavirus (HPV) which is their cause. This means that since the virus will be still inside your body, new warts will form in the future. So even after all the pain, all the money and the time you have invested your problem is not going to be solved.

Condyloma Acuminatum

Condyloma acuminatum is the medical term for genital warts, which are a skin infection that affects the genital area. As the other type of warts, they are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) and spread through skin-to-skin contact of private parts or through the share of infected body fluids. Both men and women are affected but women are more exposed to complication since their reproductive system is more internal. Condyloma acuminatum can infect people of any age and they are more frequent among people aged 17-33. Genital warts are very widespread and they are the most common sexually transmitted disease.

Symptoms and transmission of condyloma acuminatum

Condyloma acuminata are small growths that resemble a cauliflower and occur mostly on the penis, perineum, perineal area, vagina, vulva and cervix. They can cause itching, burning and discomfort but in some cases they can have no symptoms. Genital warts are transmitted through sexual activities also without penetration. You should know that it is possible that the virus will infect the area of the mouth (lips, tongue, throat) if there is oral sexual contact with an infected partner.

If you have been infected with condyloma acuminata it is very important to stop immediately all sexual activities until the warts are removed completely. Using a condom can reduce the risk of transmission but do not assure complete prevention. You have just learned that it is possible to transmit the virus also through oral sex. This means that even if you use always protection you should be very careful to not transmit the virus or be infected with it.

How is condyloma acuminatum treated?

There are a variety of treatments to choose from when you have been infected with condyloma acuminatum. The issue with all of them is that even if they are going to remove the warts, they are not going to eradicate the human papilloma virus which has caused them. Let’s see together what are the treatments that doctor usually prescribes:

  • Electrocautery – This process uses a direct or alternating current which passed through a medical probe to eliminate the warts. The heat that is generated is applied on the infected tissues and causes their destruction. Electrocautery is considered one of the most painful procedures to eliminate warts, so normally is used as a last resort.
  • Cryosurgery – This technique uses liquid nitrogen and its extreme cold to destroy warts. This procedure is not only very painful but may lead to sexual disfunction and scarring.
  • Laser treatment – This approach involves the use of a concentrated beam of light on the infected tissues which remove skin layer by layer. Laser treatments are quiete expensive and can cause bleeding and skin color changes.
  • Excision – With this technique the warts are literally cut off from the skin. The greatest risk of this procedure is the scarring.

All of the treatments above offers a possible solution to your problem. The area where they have to be applied is a very sensitive one. It is for this reason that you should be very careful when decide to undergo one of this procedure. As I mentioned earlier also you should keep in mind that all of these treatments can eliminate only the symptoms (the warts) but are not going to eradicate the cause. Even after having endured the pain and the cost, the virus will still be inside your body. This means your genital warts are going to occur again and you will still be able to infected other people.
