Hpv Symptoms

November 1, 2009 by admin 

The Human Papilloma Virus, or HPV for short, comes in few different forms. These include, Plantar Warts, Common Warts, Flat Warts and Genital Warts. HPV symptoms for each of these vary to a great degree, but there will be similarities.

If an infected person displays any HPV symptoms they should seek medical help. HPV is a highly infectious virus and can spread very rapidly. There is also the little known fact that although HPV symptoms can be treated, the actual HPV virus cannot be cured.

Instead, the HPV infected person will have to fight the virus internally. In other words the person’s immune system will need to fight the good fight. Unfortunately this fight can sometimes take a few years to become a victory for the immune system.

Until then a person can, and in most cases will, display HPV symptoms and signs. There are of course exceptions to this rule and some people can go around with the HPV virus for a few years and not display any HPV symptoms at all.

For the most part HPV symptoms will manifest themselves in the form of warts. However in some cases there will be no physical manifestation of the HPV symptoms.

HPV symptoms include, but are not limited to the following symptoms. Pink, or flesh colored lesions, single or multiple instances of warts, moisture of the affected area, itching of the affected areas or a burning sensation.

Conversely even if a person displays HPV symptoms in the form of warts this doesn’t mean that they will experience any discomfort. They might display a wart or multiple warts, but other accompanying HPV symptoms will not be present.

Depending on the type of HPV, some people also experience an intense pain in the area of the wart. Warts, as part of HPV symptoms can also vary in appearance. They can be small, large, raised lesions, or flat ones.

They can also be singular or spread to multiple warts, if this happens, and in the same place, the warts can also take on a cauliflower-like appearance. Although the HPV infection itself can’t be cured, the HPV symptoms can be cured or removed.

There are many methods to accomplish this task, with some of the most popular methods being those of a surgical nature. Other methods include the use of natural medications and in some cases home remedies or folk remedies which are also used to cure HPV symptoms.

Also available are over-the-counter remedies which are available to cure HPV symptoms, but these should be avoided at all costs if a person suffers from Genital Warts. This is due to the nature of the medications which are too strong to use in the sensitive genital area.

Instead prescription medications will need to be used in order to get rid of the HPV symptoms. Which one is chosen will depend on personal preference, the type of HPV infection and also the overall health of the patient.
