Genital Warts Treatment in Men

Genital warts or the human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted disease. HPV is not herpes or HIV. This disease is spread by sexual activity such as vaginal or anal sex and also by oral sex and genital-to-genital contact. HPV can be passed between straight and same-sex partners.

For men to know whether or not they have genital warts they need to be able to recognize warts. Unfortunately, to compact the problem of recognizing warts, sometimes warts can lay dormant for months to even years before symptoms begin to show.

Recognizing Warts

Unfortunately, HPV doesn’t always have symptoms. It is possible to be infected with the virus, pass it on to others, but never have any symptoms. On the other hand, when symptoms do present, the warts generally appear in the genital areas. Warts in men can appear around shaft of the penis, on the tip of the penis, on the scrotum, or around or inside the anus. Genital warts in men can also appear in the mouth or throat of a person who has had oral sex with an infected person.

Treatment

Treatment can involve medication and ablation treatments for warts which do not respond well with medication. Topical treatments include traditional prescriptive medications as well as homeopathic remedies.

One of the standards in treatment is topical creams which helps reduce the symptoms but doesn’t clearly make the warts vanish. It can also cause extreme burning and itching. Also, it can only be applied by a physician. Other creams can be applied at home, however these creams have the same side effects. Another side effect is that the topical cream can reduce the effectiveness of condoms.

There are many various ways to treat and remove warts. Traditional medication, homeopathic medications, and surgical removal are all ways to deal with this issue. Three popular surgical removal options are Cryotherapy, Laser treatment, and electrodesiccation. Cryotherapy freezes genital warts with liquid nitrogen. Laser surgery is a beam of light or a laser which will burn the wart completely destroying the HPV lesions. Electrodesiccation uses an electric current to destroy the warts.
