Getting Rid Of Genital Warts Fast
Getting Rid Of Genital Warts Fast.
Genital warts are a form of HPV, and as this is a virus, cannot be cured. While there are many effective treatments available to get rid of the warts themselves, at the present there is no way to completely cure the illness and ensure that the infected person will not have another outbreak. In some cases those with outbreaks find that the warts go away on their own, but the alternative is that they worsen, so you will want to see your doctor as quick as possible. There are currently many different methods used by practitioners to remove the warts, and I will list them in terms of quickest remedies first.
Liquid nitrogen cryosurgery is the quickest because the process involves simply freezing and then surgically removing the warts. This is a costly method and may cause scarring or infection, but unlike some of the topical creams is safe for pregnant women. Surgical excision is another quick one, but has a higher probability to scar. Laser removal is also fast, but costly. Electrocauterization takes longer, but is more effective than cryosurgery. The most common treatment is the application of a cream or gel containing podophyllotoxin. This method takes about four days, can cause scarring (especially on the vulva), and is not recommended for pregnant women.
It is not advised to use over the counter methods to treat genital warts as side effects vary widely from person to person and a doctor's advice could save you potential pain, scarring, and other potential side effects. There are also a lot of "home remedies" on the internet. If interested, ask your doctor about them. It is important to remember that there is no evidence proving that the HPV virus that causes genital warts is less contagious between outbreaks; meaning that you can spread the virus even when the warts are not present.
