Vinegar Warts And Wart Treatment

December 21, 2009 by admin 

The vinegar test is not reliable for detecting HPV-warts because it gives many false positive and also false negative results. This test is normally used in conjuction with magnification (colposcopy) to mark the cervical areas from where biopsy is taken.

Usually the vinegar test when used is then combined with a standard Pap Test and the two are administered at the same time and the results compared. So, if the vinegar test yields an abnormal result, the person undergoes colposcopy (which as stated above, uses a high-powered magnification device to examination) to confirm the results.

In the vast majority of cases though, warts are harmless skin growths caused by a virus. They have a rough surface on which tiny dark specks may be seen.

Warts can occur on the feet and are one of several soft tissue conditions of the foot that can be quite painful. They are caused by an infectious virus, which generally invades the skin through small or invisible cuts and abrasions.

Warts may be frozen with various commercial freezing probes or with liquid nitrogen sprayed on or applied with a cotton swab. This technique is konown as cryotherapy, and it is is often used for plantar warts and warts under the fingernails.

Warts are caused by a viral infection, called the human papillomavirus (HPV) and are contagious when in contact with the skin of an infected person. It is possible to get warts from using towels or other objects used by an infected person.

Warts that appear on the hands and feet aren’t caused by the same virus that causes Genital Warts but by another kind of HPV type of virus that isn’t sexually transmitted. Warts are an infectious disease caused by the HPV virus. They frequently develop on the hands, feet (plantar warts) and the face.

Warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), and there are more than 60 varieties of it. You most often get a wart from coming into contact with the virus through skin-to-skin contact. All of the common methods of wart treatment involve irritating the warts.

Warts are very common and it is estimated that 4 out 5 people will have at least one wart during their lifetime.

Warts on the face are often flatter in appearance and are called flat warts.

Treatment after the vinegar test possibly reduces, but does not eliminate, HPV infection. Existing data indicate that currently available therapies for Genital Warts might reduce, but probably do not eradicate, HPV infectivity. Treatment may include prescription medications and certain medical procedures. Thanfully, treatment seems to lower the chance of passing the infection to a sex partner.

Women who have Genital Warts can have healthy pregnancies. But a pregnant woman should tell her health care provider if she’s ever had genital warts. Women with genital warts should have a cervical smear test done once a year.

What practical advice can we give to alleviate wart problems? The first and most obvious is to avoid scratching warts so that they don/’t get sore or spread.

Unfortunately, infection with genital warts may not be obvious, which tends to mean that the spread can occur very often without the contagious partner being aware of the problem.

All infected areas should be cleansed thoroughly and dried using a clean towel. Medication like powders, sprays or antifungal cream should be used as directed by your Doctor.
