Everything to Understand About Anogenital (venereal) Warts

About


Anogenital warts refer to warts that grow in the outer layers of the skin.


Before HPV vaccines were introduced, roughly 340,000 to 360,000 women and men were affected by genital warts caused by HPV every year. [1]


1. Requires a medical diagnosis
2. Lab tests or imaging often required
3. Can be acute or chronic
4. Spreads mostly by sexual contact


Anogenital (venereal) warts are epidermal manifestations, which are attributed by the Epidermotropic Human Papillomavirus or the HPV. They may look like small and flesh colored bumps caused during sexual intercourse and transmitted through infections. In most of the cases, these warts are generally too small to be visible for the naked eye.


Symptoms


1. Small or flesh-colored swelling in the genital area
2. Itching and discomfort can be caused in the infected area
3. Bleeding during intercourse is a common sign
4. Pain in the genitals
5. Swelling around the infected part
6. Unexplained redness and rashes


Treatment


Self Care:
For swelling or redness, drinking a lot of water can be good to reduce the inflammation. Avoid contact in private areas during times of diagnosis.


Medications: Medications like topical anti-tumor creams can be good to reduce the nature and size of the warts.
