OUCH! I am cringing just from the thought. No it won’t cure genital warts. You need to go to the doctor and get a prescription to control the HPV virus that causes warts.

Genital Warts

Genital warts (or Condylomata acuminata, venereal warts, rectal warts and anogenital warts) is really a highly contagious std triggered by some sub-kinds of human papillomavirus (Warts). It’s spread through direct skin-to-skin contact throughout dental, genital, or rectal sex by having an infected partner. Genital Warts would be the most easily recognized characteristic of genital Warts infection, where types 6 and 11 have the effect of 90% of genital hpv warts cases.Although of individuals have contracted genital Warts it’s believed that merely a “small percentage” (between 1% and 5%) develop Genital Warts, individuals infected can continue to transmit herpes. Other kinds of Warts also cause cervical cancer and most likely most rectal cancer, however you should underline that the kinds of Genital Warts that create 90% of genital warts won’t be the same as individuals that create genital or rectal cancer. Genital Warts prevalence at anyone the years have been seen in some studies at 27% total if perhaps you are people, rising to 45% between your age range of 14 and 19.


Signs And Signs And Symptoms Of Genital Warts


Genital warts frequently exist in groupings and can be quite small or can spread into large public within the genital or penis area. In some cases they appear like small stalks. In females they occur about the outdoors and within the vagina, about the opening (cervix) towards the womb (uterus), or around (or inside) the anus. They’re roughly as prevalent in males however the signs and symptoms might be less apparent. When present, they are definitely seen about the tip of your penis. Additionally they might be located on the shaft of your penis, about the nut sack, or around (or inside) the anus. Rarely, genital warts may also develop within the mouth or throat of an individual who has already established dental sex by having an infected person.

The viral contaminants can penetrate your skin and mucosal surfaces through microscopic abrasions within the vagina, which occur throughout intercourse. Once cells are penetrated by Genital Warts, a latency (quiet) duration of several weeks to years (decades) may occur. Warts may last for many years with no symptom. Making love having a partner whose Genital Warts infection is latent and demonstrates no outward signs and symptoms still leaves one susceptible to becoming infected. If someone has unprotected sex by having an infected partner, there’s a 70% chance that she or he will even become infected. The defense mechanisms eventually clears herpes through interleukins, which recruit interferons, which slow viral replication.

  1. No wart should ever be removed in such a way.
    By doing so….in the way which you have described? This might actually promote bleeding,and infection.
    You need to try to get on some kind of medical assistance to help pay for your medical care,and pharmacy needs.
    That’s what I have trouble understanding….the help is available….yet,many people do nothing to seek the help.
    There are low cost clinics,hospitals,and even some doctors offices take monthly payments/sliding scale fees.But,so often…people just don’t try to seek out this information.
    Hope this helps some how.Make some local calls in your area for further assistance….both financial,and medical assistance.It IS available.You just have to take some of your time,and some effort to seek it.
    Take care.

  2. No, it can probably even spread it. They are caused by a bug and duct tape won’t help that.

    Contact Planned Parenthood or your health department. It’s considered an STD and you can probably get treatment for low or no cost.

    Jennifer, I suggest you get off your holier than thou throne because you don’t know what you are talking about. Maybe where you are, there are lots of clinics and doctors willing to see people on a sliding scale, but that’s not true in most places. I spent two years working with car accident victims. They lost their health insurance because they lost their jobs, so they couldn’t get treatment. They didn’t qualify for assistance because they weren’t children and it wasn’t life threatening. With the massive cuts the republicans are insisting on for the poor people with the lack of revenue, even more people are having to go without insurance. This includes people with brain injuries and possible fractures who couldn’t get state aid.

    Our state capital has 30,000 people. THere is one free/low cost medical clinic. To get in there, you have to show up on Thursday and wait for hours. And even then you might not be seen.

  3. No. A doctor would just freeze them off with liquid nitrogen. Try to get that or drive to a doctor in Mexico. They’re cheap. BTW you need to take care of this pronto. They will only spread and get worse and more expensive to treat. Sell valuables if you have to. I heard of a guy who had to surgically get a new anus (gay guy) after his first one got massively infected and needed to be removed!

  4. NOOO!
    Don’t you have a friend who is a doctor who can help you out? It will be far worse if you try to do it yourself and end up with an infection!

  5. As far as I know, duct tape has been known to help cure warts. But it’s 80% effective to treat on fingers and hands. But, I would say go directly to your doctor and ask about this matter. They know better abut this more than anyone else. I’m sure they will ask you to undergo tests and prescribed medications.
