Genital Warts

A common sexually transmitted infection caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) that affects the genital area.

What is it?

Genital warts emerge around the genital area and anus due to skin-to-skin contact with an HPV-infected partner during sexual activities like vaginal, anal, or oral sex. Lack of protection and multiple partners heighten the risk of contracting genital warts. Several HPV strains, primarily low-risk types, induce warts on the vulva, vagina, cervix, rectum, anus, penis, or scrotum.

Certain HPV strains, categorized as high-risk, may progress to cancer if untreated. While genital warts don't equate to cancer, vigilance and a dermatologist's consultation are essential for proper diagnosis and monitoring. Despite potential embarrassment, seeking dermatological care ensures accurate diagnosis and treatment planning.

Genital warts exhibit diverse sizes and shapes, ranging from scattered skin-colored bumps to clusters of raised, flat, smooth, or rough bumps. These warts may trigger discomfort, mild bleeding, genital itching, or a burning sensation.

How is it treated?

Genital warts typically resolve within five to ten days as the immune system combats the infection. However, once the virus infects your system, it persists indefinitely (while warts eventually disappear).

For more effective genital wart treatment, we offer cryotherapy, laser therapy, topical medications directly applied to the warts, and, in severe instances, surgical excision. Removing these warts aids in reducing virus transmission risk and alleviating discomfort. Our board-certified dermatologists in Avon, Sandusky, Broadview Heights, Medina, Port Clinton, and Strongsville, Ohio will assess and devise the optimal treatment strategy for you.
