Genital Warts Treatment Cream
Are You Suffering From A Genital Warts Outbreak? Genital Warts Treatment Cream May Be The Solution For You.
Have you experienced itching, burning and/or bleeding on your genital area? Do you have visible signs of swelling on your genitals? Have several warts clustered together in a cauliflower shape anywhere on your genitals? If so, you should schedule an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible because you could have contracted genital warts. Genital warts occur when you have any type of sexual intercourse with someone who is already infected with it. Your doctor can diagnose genital warts by examining the genital area, and if you're a woman, a Pap test might also be administered. Sometimes the warts can be too small to examine with the naked eye. If this is the case, your doctor will apply a gentle acid solution to the genital area which will cause any warts you might have to turn white. This will enable your doctor to examine the infected area and make a proper diagnosis. If genital warts are suspected, your doctor will start immediate treatment. Keep in mind that there is no long-term cure for genital warts. Treatment will make the current outbreak go away, but the warts will likely develop again in the future.
Genital warts treatment cream is the method your doctor will likely use to treat the outbreak. There are several types of genital warts treatment cream available. However, the three treatment creams used most often are podofilox, podophyllin and Aldara. Podofilox comes in a lotion or gel form and can be used at home. Generally, your doctor will apply the first dose in order to show you how to use it. You use this type of genital warts treatment cream by applying it to the affected area twice a day for three days and then not at all for the next four days. You would need to repeat this process for about four weeks. Possible side effects are itching, burning or swelling around the application site. Podofilox shouldn't be used during pregnancy as it's known to cause birth defects. Podophyllin is another type of genital warts treatment cream. It comes in liquid or lotion form and can only be applied by your doctor. Podophyllin is applied directly to the genital warts and will need to be washed off within four hours of application.
It will need to be applied frequently for about six weeks. Possible side effects are redness, pain, itching and swelling around the application site. Podophyllin also shouldn't be used if you're pregnant as it can cause birth defects. Aldara is also an effective genital warts treatment cream. It comes in cream form and can be used at home. Aldara is applied directly onto the warts daily for around 16 weeks. Generally, after four weeks you will start to notice a reduction in the size and/or amount of genital warts you have. Possible side effects are redness at the application site. As with podofilox and podophyllin, it isn't recommended if you're pregnant. Genital wart outbreaks might not be curable, but they can be treated if caught in time. If you don't get treatment, it's possible it will lead to cancer in the vulva, penis or anus. Your doctor will be able to help you determine which genital warts treatment cream would be best for your situation.
