How can I get rid of warts?

Reduced immunity is often the cause of the development of various diseases. So, for example, the appearance of warts can be an unpleasant surprise, and its cause is the human papillomavirus (HPV). It, just, and is activated at a time when the body is not able to fully fight the attack of the ill-wisher.

HPV "lives" in virtually every human body and may not manifest itself for decades. Externally, the virus manifests itself as the appearance of nodular benign lesions. How to deal with them, and whether it is possible to get rid of genital warts at home, we will tell further.

Insidious virus

Warts can be of two types:

  • flat - are usually deep in the urethra or cervix, it is difficult to identify them during a routine examination, but they can be the cause of the development of more complex diseases, therefore it requires timely treatment;
  • spiky - caused by a specific virus, similar to the one that provokes the appearance of warts.

The reasons for the appearance of such formations are non-compliance with the rules of hygiene, as well as close contact with the carrier of the virus. The appearance of condylomas can also be preceded by contact with the mucous membranes of the genital organs by irritating the discharge from the urethra, vagina or rectum during sexual intercourse.

Trouble can be delivered not only by the formation itself, but also by the liquid that accumulates between them and has an unpleasant smell.

If there is enough local therapy, then the doctor can prescribe Epigen. This medicinal product is produced in the form of a spray, which can handle large foci, and ointment is used for genital warts.

Sometimes medications with a small acid content, which effectively affect the acuminate formations, help. After the first procedure, they become smaller.
