Early Genital Warts
Genital warts are one of those subjects that most people wonít want to talk about in public. It is nevertheless something that is very real and just because you avoid it, it doesnít mean that it will go away. In fact if you ignore early genital warts signs you could be doing an injustice to yourself.
Some signs of genital warts donít actually manifest themselves in a manner in which you will recognize them, but if there are early genital warts signs these should not go unheeded. The advice of a physician should be sought as soon as possible.
Genital warts are also known to some people as HPV, or as the Human Papilloma Virus. Some people also believe this virus to be a form of herpes although this is not true. The two infections are two separate infections, although both are classed as sexually transmitted diseases.
Genital warts are highly contagious, and they are passed from skin to skin contact. This means that a person may also infect themselves elsewhere on the body if they forget to wash their hands after coming into contact with the warts.
Itís best not to ignore early genital warts signs. It might be potentially embarrassing to talk things over with your physician but you can rest assured that this is the best thing that you could do for yourself.
Genital warts left untreated can sometimes lead to more serious problems arising like that of cervical cancer. However since some people donít display signs of early genital warts it becomes difficult to seek treatment for their problem.
There are however other symptoms and signs which can be taken as early genital warts symptoms. These include a burning pain in the affected area, an itching sensation, redness or soreness of the area and also moisture or dampness around the affected area.
If you suffer from any of these you might have the HPV virus, in which case you need to start treatment as soon as possible. Due to its contagious nature your sexual partner should also seek medical assistance to determine whether they too have genital HPV.
Also there is a chance that even if you have sexual relations with an HPV infected partner that you might not display early genital warts signs or symptoms for a few months. For some people this can even be a few years.
This is one of the reasons it becomes difficult to determine from whom you contracted the disease if you have or have had, multiple sexual partners. Thereís also a chance that you will display early genital warts signs almost immediately you are infected. A lot of this depends on the condition of your health at the time of infection as well as the type of HPV you get.
