Genital warts is a problem that needs to be treated as soon as it is detected. Many problems can arise if the treatment is not conducted. We will see in the following text what genital wart is and what stages of this condition there are. Human papilloma viruses are responsible for the creation of this condition. The genital warts produce abnormal skin growths that are located in the genital region. This problem, also called venereal wart, condyloma acuminatum and verruca acuminata, creates these growths which are pink, red or white in color and are very contagious. Sexual contact is the most common way of spreading this disease. This problem can even be passed to other people without the individual’s realization about the presence of this disease. In other words, problem may not even cause any symptoms, so a person can transfer the virus without even knowing it. The immune system has to be strong to fight off this virus. Cancer and infection can occur if the problem is not treated.
The early realization of the disease is very important for the treatment and prevention of transferring an infection. We will give you information on stages of the genital warts, so that you can identify the problem in appropriate time. During the initial several months after the infection, there will be no symptoms present. After this period, itching and redness will be present on the inner thigh area. After this comes the swelling and itching, and this is the time a doctor is needed if you are sexually active. This period will last for several days, after which the genital area will start to show small lumps, usually blue, red, pink or white in color. During some period after their creation, the pain will not be experienced. But they will grow in size and pain over time. Lips and mouth can be affected by these lumps, but this happens very rarely. Women may suffer from these warts on the vaginal canal entry and bleeding during the intercourse is common in such cases. In some cases, this area may be moist and damp. There are some serious complications possible if the treatment is not conducted. Penis, anus, vulva or cervical cancer may be created if genital warts are not treated.
Treatment has to be conducted immediately after the problem has been detected. There are several procedures that can remove these warts, such as electrocautery, which uses electrical current, or cryptotheraphy, which uses liquid nitrogen to freeze the genital warts. Laser surgery is one of the most popular treatment methods of today. But know that virus will not be always removed with a surgery. Virus may still remain in the body. For the end, we recommend vaccination for genital warts, but only for the females.
