Genital warts, also known as human papilloma virus (HPV), are estimated to affect between 40 to 80 percent of the adult population in the United States. HPV is extremely difficult to detect and may often be present without symptoms, making it one of the most challenging sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) to effectively treat.
One of the reasons genital warts are so difficult to treat is that they are also difficult to detect, since the vast majority of people affected by them show no noticeable symptoms. Less than five percent of people affected with genital warts have warts that are visible, and only another three percent of those affected have warts that are visible without magnification.
When symptoms do manifest, they include burning, itching, and reddening of the skin in and around the affected areas. While flat warts are not visible to the naked eye, non-flat genital warts appear as small, raised, soft, and moist bumps that are red or pink in color, and which resemble tiny cauliflowers. In men, genital warts primarily are found on the penis, scrotum, the opening to the urethra, and around the anus and rectum. In women, they can occur in the vulva, vaginal wall, cervix, and around the anus.
Genital warts are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). HPV can be transmitted during unprotected sex (oral, genital, and anal), and can also be contracted from materials contaminated with HPV, including underwear and other clothing, medical equipment, sex aids or devices, tanning salon beds, and toilet seats.
If you suspect you have genital warts, you can verify this by applying white vinegar on the suspected area and then inspecting it with a magnifying glass. Spots that turn white are often a positive indicator of warts. For the most accurate results, seek the assistance of a physician.
There are natural cures for Genital warts that do not involve the use of pharmaceutical drugs. These cures focus on restoring the biochemical balance of the body, and making dietary and lifestyle changes designed to improve one's general health.
