Genital warts are also known as condylomaacuminatumare skin lesions caused by the HPV virus that may be transferred during unprotected intercourse.
Warts may occur in both men and women in areas that have come into touch with the virus, with the head of the penis, scrotum, vaginal lips, and the area surrounding the anus being the most often impacted.
Because the virus has such a lengthy incubation period, warts typically do not show until many days or months after the illness has been transmitted. As a result, even if you don’t have symptoms, the HPV virus may still be present in your body, therefore you should always wear a condom during sexual contact, particularly with new partners.
Main cause of Genital Warts
The main cause of genital warts is HPV types 6 and 11, which give rise to cauliflower-like warts. Types 16 and 18 of the HPV virus, on the other hand, give rise to flatter warts, which can be confused with other sexually transmitted infections, such as syphilis. In this case, the doctor may recommend performing a test for syphilis to rule out this possibility and confirm that the lesion is caused by the HPV virus.
How to identify genital warts
Genital warts are similar to small calluses that grow on the skin, with a surface that resembles broccoli or cauliflower, for example. In addition, it is also common for them to have a darker point in the center.
Although it is rare, warts can also cause other symptoms such as:
- Itching or slight discomfort in the affected region
- Slight tingling sensation
- Bleeding during intercourse
Warts can be small or large, skin-colored, pink or brown, wrinkled or rough to the touch, and can look like a cauliflower or a rooster’s comb. In some cases, warts can grow too close together, causing a larger lesion.
In rarer cases, infection in addition to warts can also result in the development of cancer, especially cancer of the cervix or anus, as some types of the virus cause these types of sequelae.
How to confirm the diagnosis?
The best way to confirm that it is genital warts is to consult a gynecologist, in the case of a woman, or a urologist, in the case of a man. In these cases, the doctor, in addition to evaluating the skin lesions and other symptoms, can also ask several questions that help classify the risk of infection of actually having an HPV, such as if you have had unprotected sex or if you have more than a sexual partner, for example.
As some warts can be very small and difficult to see with the naked eye, the doctor may also need to do other tests such as a Pap smear in women or a periscope in men.
How can you get HPV?
When the HPV virus enters the body, it causes the formation of genital warts. Due to direct contact with warts, this generally occurs when you have an unprotected connection with someone afflicted with the virus.
However, this does not mean that the fact that warts are not observed means that the virus cannot be passed on, as some can be very small and difficult to observe with the naked eye.
Thus, the best recommendation is to always use a condom during intercourse. And in cases of people with warts, the condom must fully cover all warts.
How warts are treated?
Best genital warts treatment is performed with the use of creams and ointments. However, in some cases, the doctor may recommend removing warts with a laser, cryotherapy with nitrogen, or surgery.
