Genital Warts

Definition

Venereal or genital warts are single or clusters of soft, cauliflower-like growths found in and around the vagina, anus, penis, groin, or scrotal areas.
Back to Top


Causes

They are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). There are more than 35 types of HPV, and 2 have been associated with cancer of the cervix and genital area. These warts are not to be confused with common warts which are not venereal and may be easily removed and cured by applying castor oil, a crushed clove of garlic causing blisters around the wart and then it will drop off.

Symptoms

Genital warts are rough, bumpy growths found by the vaginal opening and labia. They are, as stated, sexually transmitted and are highly contagious.
Women who suspect they have contracted venereal warts should contact their gynecologist immediately and have a pap smear test. Women diagnosed with genital warts should have a pap smear every 6 months due to increased risk of cancer. Men who suspect venereal warts should immediately see a doctor. Incubation period for genital warts is usually 3 months or longer. Early detection is very important because the virus may be spread before the carrier realizes its presence. The genital area should be kept clean and dry. After a bath use a hair dryer on low setting. Do not rub or irritate the area. Wear only cotton underwear. Do not have sexual intercourse until all the genital warts are completely healed.
