It is important that genital warts in women be diagnosed and treated in the early stages because the HPV virus can lead to more serious conditions such as cervical cancer. In addition, there is a slight chance that genital warts during pregnancy that are not caught in the early stages can be passed along to newborn infants during birth. Genital wart treatment options for pregnant women will likely be different than those used for other women.
Genital warts in females are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), which is a microscopic virus particle that infects the skin. Genital warts in females can appear as single bumps or in clusters that have a cauliflower-like structure. Warts in females can be found in the genital area including in and around the anus and the vagina.
One of the most annoying aspects of genital warts is the dry flakey skin that often occurs on the wart and the surrounding area. Sometimes called genital psoriasis, this condition occurs because the skin lacks water or oil. Treatments aim to replace the water in the skin around the genital warts. Although flakey skin around the genitals is common, it can be difficult to manage because the skin in the genital area is naturally thin and sensitive to treatment.
Patients and their doctors often struggle to select the best method to remove penis warts effectively. Penis warts are the outward symptoms of a sexually transmitted viral infection called HPV (human papillomavirus) which may include the tissues around the infected area. There is no known cure for HPV. Fifty percent of sexually active men and women will acquire HPV at some point in their lives.
Although many health care professionals frown upon genital wart removers sold over the counter, thousands of sufferers use these remedies every year and many report satisfactory results. The reason that health professionals believe genital wart removers from over the counter should not be used is that the genital area is very sensitive and can be easily injured if over the counter medications are not applied properly.
