Treatments and Medications for Warts

November 1, 2009 by admin 

Certain activities such as sexual activity, tobacco smoking, oral contraceptive use, chewing Indian betel quid, and ultraviolet and x-ray irradiation, are associated with an increased risk of HPV malignant transformation, particularly in the anogenital/mucosal category.

A human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine is now available for the prevention of HPV-associated dysplasias and neoplasia, including cervical cancer, Genital Warts, and precancerous genital lesions. Girls and young women aged 9-26 years should receive the complete immunization series. This is also indicated for boys and young men for condyloma acuminata.

Treatment is not recommended for subclinical anogenital and/or mucosal human papilloma virus infection in the absence of coexistent dysplasia. No evidence demonstrates that treatment eliminates HPV infection or that it decreases infectivity. In fact, warts may recur after treatment because of activation of latent virus present in healthy skin adjacent to the lesion.

Superiority of any single treatment modality has not been demonstrated, nor is one modality ideal for all types of warts. Factors that influence treatment of HPV disease include the size, morphology, number, and anatomic site of lesions, as well as cost, adverse effects, patient preference, and provider experience.

Most patients with warts require multiple treatments over a course of several weeks or months. If substantial improvements have not occurred after 3 physician-administered treatments or if complete clearance has not occurred after 6 treatments, a different treatment modality should be used.

All medicines used to treat HPV disease are applied topically on cutaneous surfaces. Local skin reactions and pain are common adverse effects. Do not apply any of these medications to mucosal surfaces and do not use them to treat dysplastic lesions, SCC, verrucous carcinomas, or Bowenoid Papulosis.

Two broad categories of medications are effective in treating HPV disease. The first category, the immune response modifiers, is primarily used in treatment of external anoGenital Warts or condylomata acuminata. The second category consists of the cytotoxic agents, as well as the chemodestructive or keratolytic agents. None of these medicines has been shown to be uniformly effective or directly antiviral. The keratolytics are the only agents that are recommended for treatment of nongenital cutaneous warts.

Various surgical techniques are available for the treatment of HPV disease. With the exception of cryosurgery, these modalities usually have the common advantage of complete treatment following one application. However, surgical modalities typically require local anesthesia and more time and equipment to implement. Consequently, they are often used when a large number of warts is present or a large area is affected or on patients with refractory disease. Recurrence of HPV disease is less common following surgical treatment as opposed to medical therapy.

Primary surgical therapy can often be accomplished in the office and includes cryosurgery, electrosurgery with either electrodesiccation or loop electrosurgical excision procedure, or simple surgical excision with a scalpel, scissors, or curette. Alternative surgical procedures requiring more advanced equipment and training include carbon dioxide laser ablation, Cavitron Ultrasonic Surgical Aspiration, or Mohs surgery.

Natural substances make a better warts cure or HPV cure than synthetic drugs because our bodies are designed to absorb and benefit from naturally occurring plant molecules. In comparison, synthetic substances are alien to our system and were only introduced in the last 80 years.

Our bodies were not created to accept or metabolize these synthetic substances, which would explain why they are responsible for more fatalities than those suffered by US forces during the Vietnam War. Drugs clog receptor sites and confuse the system. A cure for warts made from plant extract compounds represent molecules of life itself, which are in perfect biochemical harmony with the human system.

WartCure provides a safe and effective alternative to this invasive and expensive treatment. This highly effective wart cure contains certified organic anti-viral extracts that have the demonstrated ability to not only kill the wart virus, but to also stimulate CD4 T-cells. These cells are responsible for cleansing virus-infected cells, making our product superior to other cures for warts because it works without any recurrence, discomfort or tissue damage.

Medicinal plants have been used for centuries and their therapeutic properties have been revealed during clinical observations. These properties have been validated through pharmacological tests on animals, isolated tissue samples and cell cultures, proving that medicinal plants provide outstanding results in healing the human system.
