What are genital warts? How are they to be treated?

Resolved Question:

Genital warts are white or pinkish colored lumps that are affected on the genital area. They have the shape of a cauliflower. It usually takes about one to three months for the appearing of genital warts. These are usually painless but severe itching may occur. This virus is not passed into everybody who comes in contact with it. These types of infections are easily curable. But do not delay the treatment as it may cause the infection to get worse and it may lead to lot other serious problems.

If you have an infection, don’t panic .becoming nervous on the thought of an affected disease is a common phenomenon. By visiting the GUM clinic (genitourinary medicine clinic) you will get the testing and they will give you certain guidelines to follow. These clinics are included within local hospitals and they are separate departments. The consultants are free and are easily available. They will keep your visit as confidential so that no one will be known about your visit to the hospital. They will be very happy to see people and clarify their doubts.

There are various treatments available. Some tests include taking of swabs from the penis tip or from cervix.  Some include urine test and blood test. Before beginning of the tests they will give necessary information about what the tests includes.

There is a proverb saying “PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE”. It is applicable in here also. So to prevent the transmission of the disease you should use condoms while having sex. Thin squares of latex bitterly known as dental dams can also be used during oral sex, which is the involving of mouth and anus or the involving of mouth and vagina during sex.  It will protect us by acting as a barrier. Any doubts about the use of condom or other barrier devices will be cleared by consultants in the clinics. Also they will provide you free condoms.
