Genital Warts

A wart is a small growth on the skin that develops when the skin is infected by a virus. Genital warts is a highly contagious sexually transmitted disease caused by some sub‐types of human papillomavirus (HPV). It is spread through direct skin‐to‐skin contact during oral, genital, or anal sex with an infected partner. Warts are the most easily recognized symptom of genital HPV infection. Those infected with genital HPV, it is estimated that only a "small percentage" (between 1% and 5%) develop genital warts, those infected can still transmit the virus. Other types of HPV also cause cervical cancer. There is no cure for the HPV virus, but if genital wart do occur, there are treatments to remove the warts.
Gardasil is a series of three vaccines for use in the prevention of certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV). It does not treat existing infection. Therefore, to be effective it must be given before HPV infection occurs.

Signs and Symptoms

    The symptoms of genital warts may include:
  • he warts are soft, moist, pink or flesh‐colored bumps. You can have one or many of these bumps..
  • In women, the warts usually occur in or around the vagina, on the cervix or around the anus
  • In men, genital warts tend to be less common but might occur on the shaft or tip of the penis.
  • Causes

  • You can get genital warts during oral, vaginal or anal sex with an infected partner.
  • Correct usage of latex condoms greatly reduces, but does not completely eliminate, the risk of catching or spreading HPV.
  • Having sex with a partner whose HPV infection is latent and demonstrates no outward symptoms still leaves one vulnerable to becoming infected. If an individual has unprotected sex with an infected partner, there is a 70% chance that he or she will also become infected. The immune system eventually clears the virus through interleukins, which recruit interferons, which slow viral replication.


The treatment depends on the type of wart. The common treatments are abrasion, cautery with acids and cryo‐treatment. There is no cure for HPV, but there are methods to treat visible warts, which could reduce infecting other partners, although there are no trials studying the effectiveness of removing visible warts in reducing transmission. · Trichloroacetic acid (TCA): For
