Genital warts also known as condylomata acuminate or venereal warts, are caused by Human Pappiloma Virus (HPV). They generally occur around the genital area like anus, cervix, penis, rectum, scrotum, vulva and vagina. They are either flat or cauliflower-like shaped. People with many sexual partners and those who do not practice safe sex are at greater risk of getting infected. Genital warts mainly occur among young people around 20 years of age. Sexual intercourse causes friction which results in the abrasion of the uppermost layer of the skin.
This causes minute tears in the surface of the skin which are not even visible to the naked eye. The virus from the infected individual is then transferred to his/her partner through direct skin-to-skin contact. Genital, anal, and oral sex are the mains causes of HPV transmission and indulging in unprotected sex with an infected individual will invariably cause a transmission of the virus. When the HPV viral infection is dormant, the individual will not display warts or any of the other symptoms associated with this condition. However, if the infection is in the active stage, the warts will be quite noticeable.
Remedies for Genital Warts:
There are a few things that can be applied as a creme or oil to the genital area to reduce the warts. Vitamin E oil is safe for the genital area and can be applied to the warts directly. There is some talk of putting crushed raw garlic on the area and covering it with tape but that does not sound like a viable option. Not only does garlic burn but the tape can pull hair and irritate the skin immensely. This is supposed to take the wart off completely and the tape is there to catch it when it falls off in about seven days. This is not really a proven method of home remedies for genital warts. Again, the use of onions and vinegar in the genital area as is recommended for home remedies, does not appeal to the safe side of being careful with the sensitivity of the area. These items are notorious for burning and irritating the toughest skin so why use it on the most sensitive. If you cannot put it in your eye, never use it on that area.
