If you’re noticing cauliflower-like growths in your genital area, it could be a sign of genital warts, a sexually transmitted infection transmitted through skin-to-skin contact. Seeking timely treatment is essential to manage symptoms and prevent transmission to others.

What are genital warts?

Genital warts are a common sexually transmitted infection caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). They can appear as small, flesh-colored bumps or cauliflower-like clusters on or around the genital area. While genital warts themselves are not usually harmful, they can be uncomfortable and may cause emotional distress. Seeking timely treatment is crucial not only for symptom relief but also to prevent transmission to others.

What are the symptoms of Genital Warts?

Genital warts can present with various symptoms, including:

  • Lumps resembling overgrowth around the vagina, anus, or penis
  • Itching and bleeding from the warts
  • Possible internal appearance
  • Changes in urination flow
  • Flesh-colored or grey lumps
  • Swelling in the genital area
  • Cauliflower-like shape

It’s important to note that genital warts can spread to the mouth through oral sex with an infected person. Seeking immediate treatment for both you and your partner is essential to manage the condition effectively.

What are the causes of Genital Warts?

  • Genital warts are primarily caused by different strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV).
  • HPV is commonly transmitted through skin-to-skin contact.
  • While genital warts are considered a sexually transmitted infection (STI), they can also be passed through non-sexual skin-to-skin contact.
  • Transmission during childbirth is possible, exposing newborns to the virus if the mother has genital warts.
  • HPV is highly contagious, and individuals without symptoms can still transmit the virus.
  • Practicing safe sex and good hygiene can help reduce the risk of HPV transmission.

How to Treat Genital Warts?

Treating genital warts often involves prescription medications designed to target and eliminate wart tissue. Here are some common prescription treatments:

  • Imiquimod Cream (Aldara, Zyclara): Boosts the immune system’s ability to fight genital warts. Requires a prescription and regular monitoring by a healthcare provider.
  • Podofilox (Condylox): Made from a plant-based resin that kills wart tissue. It also requires a prescription.

These topical medications are applied directly to the affected area and work to remove genital warts over time.

How to prevent Genital Warts?

Preventing genital warts begins with adopting proactive measures to reduce the risk of HPV transmission. Here are some strategies for preventing genital warts:

HPV vaccination

  • The HPV vaccine, such as Gardasil-9, is the safest way to protect against infection. Gardasil-9 targets nine of the most common HPV strains.
  • Complete immunity typically requires three-spaced doses over six months.
  • Healthcare providers often recommend vaccination before becoming sexually active.

Safer sex practices

  • Consistently use condoms and dental dams during every sexual encounter, including anal, vaginal, or oral sex.
  • Use condoms correctly to minimize skin-to-skin contact and reduce the risk of HPV transmission.

Partner selection

  • Avoid engaging in sexual activity with individuals who have visible warts or suspicious bumps on their genitals.
  • Communicate openly with sexual partners about HPV and other  (STIs).

Regular STI testing

  • Get tested for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) regularly, especially if you are sexually active with multiple partners or engage in high-risk sexual behaviors.
  • Early detection of HPV or other STIs can lead to timely treatment and reduce the risk of complications.

Abstain from sexual activity during outbreaks

  • Refrain from engaging in sexual activity when you have visible genital warts, even when using condoms.
  • This reduces the risk of transmitting the virus to sexual partners.

Quit smoking

  • Smoking is associated with an increased risk of developing genital warts.
  • Individuals who smoke are more likely to experience recurrent warts compared to non-smokers.
  • Quitting smoking can help reduce the risk of genital warts and improve overall health.

FAQs about Genital Warts treatment online

Why do warts itch so bad?

Genital warts itch because the nature of the warts is dry and flaky, which causes itching. Oatmeal baths can provide ease in the itching. Otherwise, see a doctor for medicated ointments to stop itching and infection spread. 

Do genital warts cause burning urination?

Genital warts can cause a burning sensation in both men and women while peeing, unusual discharge from the penis or vagina, or even bleeding during sex. These symptoms show the severity of the condition; therefore, it is better to see a doctor for personalized treatment for you and your partner. 

Can anything be mistaken for genital warts?

Yes, molluscum contagiosum can be mistaken for genital warts, as in both cases, lesions develop. If you are confused, get the diagnosis online from Your Doctors Online within minutes, 24/7. 

How long do genital warts last in males?

In males, genital warts clears up in a few months. However, the infection stays much longer as the virus remains active, and any opportunity of infection can cause remission. It might take around two years or more to completely remove the warts from the body.

Do genital warts show up immediately?

The warts-causing virus (HPV) can enter your body via intercourse with an infected person. The infection can cause warts to appear sooner or later but makes you contagious even if the warts don’t appear. The time of warts appearance varies from 6 weeks to 6 months or longer in some people.

How fast do genital warts spread?

Genital warts spread fast from one person to another via oral, anal, or vaginal sex. If your partner has warts, you are infected too, and maybe the symptoms appear later. Therefore, treat yourself and your partner as soon as possible to prevent the infection from spreading.

Can you buy cream for genital warts over the counter?

Over-the-counter creams are not effective and, in some cases, can aggravate the issue. Therefore, doctors don’t recommend using OTC creams for warts, especially if you have sensitive skin. 

What antibiotics cure genital warts?

Antibiotics cannot cure genital warts as this is not a bacterial infection. For viral infections, antibiotics don’t work. See a doctor for the proper treatment of genital warts via antiviral medications like Imiquimod. 

Why do I keep getting genital warts?

If your infection reactivates every now and then, the cause may be not getting proper treatment, poor personal hygiene, unprotected sex, or having intercourse with an infected person. These practices can increase the risk of remission of the warts as the virus remains in the body long after getting rid of genital warts. 

What happens if genital warts are left untreated?

If left untreated, genital warts can grow larger and cause pain, itching, and bleeding. Long-term viral infection can weaken your immune system and make you susceptible to other STIs and UTIs. Moreover, rarely they can develop into cancer as well. 

Can genital warts be cured permanently?

There is no permanent cure for genital warts, but they can be treated and removed surgically. However, the warts-causing virus remains in the body for a long time and goes away on its own. Therefore, taking care of your health, taking foods to boost immunity, and adopting healthy personal hygiene practices can make a difference.

Can I get the HPV vaccine at any age?

Both males and females aged 9 to 45 are eligible to receive the HPV vaccine. For individuals aged 15 and older, a series of three shots over six months is recommended to achieve optimal benefits. It is recommended that all individuals between the ages of 9 and 26 receive the HPV vaccine, with the most effective administration typically occurring between the ages of 11 and 12.

How can I get rid of HPV fast?

Currently, there is no cure for an existing HPV infection. However, the immune system naturally clears the infection for many individuals over time. Treatments are available to manage symptoms caused by HPV. Getting vaccinated against HPV can protect against new infections that may lead to genital warts or cancer.
