4 treatment options for HPV
The treatment for HPV has the objective of eliminating the warts, being able to vary according to the number of warts, location in which they arise and the way they are, being important that the treatment is carried out according to the orientation of the gynecologist or urologist.
Therefore, according to the characteristics of HPV warts, the doctor may recommend the use of medications such as ointments, cryotherapy, laser treatment or surgery in cases where the warts are very large.
Regardless of the treatment indicated, it is important that the person maintains good intimate hygiene and uses condoms in all sexual relations, confirming that the condom covers the warts. It is also important that the pair be evaluated by a doctor to confirm if it has been infected and, if so, start the treatment.
The use of medications such as ointments or creams to eliminate HPV warts is the most common form of treatment indicated by the doctor, and may vary according to the characteristics of the warts, number and location of emergence.
Therefore, some of the drugs that can be indicated are Trichloroacetic acid, Podophyllin and Imiquimod.

Surgery can be indicated when the lesions are very large and when the person tends to bleed, and can be performed in the medical office of a hospital.
In addition, surgery for HPV is indicated when high-grade lesions caused by the virus in the uterus are identified, which increases the risk of developing uterine cancer. In this way, when performing the surgery it is possible to treat the lesions, preventing their progression and decreasing the risk of cancer.
3. Cauterization of the uterus
The cauterization of the uterus is a type of treatment that is also indicated in cases of HPV, mainly when it is confirmed in the pap smear, in the case of women, the presence of uterine lesions caused by this virus, even when there are no genital warts.
This procedure has the objective of treating the lesions and preventing their progress, preventing the development of cancer. In this way, the gynecologist cures the lesions identified in the examination, allowing healthy cells to develop in the area and prevent the progress of the illness. He knows what is and how the cauterization of the uterus is performed.
Cryotherapy is also a treatment option for warts caused by HPV and consists of freezing the wart using liquid nitrogen, being indicated for more external warts. This treatment must be carried out in the medical office and the wart can come off in a few days.
The treatment of the duel HPV?
The treatment of the HPV can be painful during the extirpation of the warts, especially during the cryotherapy, because the patient can feel the painful region for a maximum of 7 days. However, it is possible to place hot compresses of manzanilla in the area to reduce pain.
Will the VPH ever appear?
HPV warts can appear again because the immune system can take several years to completely eliminate the virus from the cells. Therefore, during the treatment it is important that the patient uses a condom, which is maintained in sexual abstinence until the virus is eliminated from the body, preventing the transmission of the illness.
The cure of HPV occurs when the immune system is able to eliminate the virus, which occurs in most cases. But to increase the chances of cure, the body’s defenses must be strengthened through the intake of vitamin C or medication prescribed by the doctor, such as Interferon, for example.
The HPV increases the risk of developing cancer in the places where the warts are found, because of the possibility of having cancer in the vagina, the vulva, the year, the penis, the scrotum or even in the mouth and in the throat.
The best way to avoid the development of cancer is to carry out the treatment with the medicines indicated by the doctor or through the surgery, if necessary.
Signs of improvement and empowerment of the VPH
When the treatment is carried out properly, symptoms may appear that indicate an improvement in HPV, such as a decrease in the number and size of the warts, also decreasing the risk of contagion of the virus. However, the warts can reappear because the virus remains latent in the body, not being completely eliminated after the treatment of the warts.
On the other hand, when the treatment is not carried out according to the doctor’s recommendation, it is possible to observe the emergence of more injuries, in addition to having a greater probability of developing complications, including cancer.
