Genital warts are uncomfortable and annoying accumulations of skin that are generated as a result of the action of HPV.
That being said, what is the reason that might lead someone to use ampicillin for their wart problem if it is not caused by bacteria but by a virus? None.
On some occasions, genital warts generate infections of this type, but it is rare for them to become so severe as to require the consumption of this medication.
Moreover, there are much more advisable alternatives. Therefore, ampicillin is not recommended for genital warts.
The effects of ampicillin on your genital wart problem
Ampicillin, like all antibiotic medications, not only kills the bacteria that cause the infection but also the healthy cells that are part of your immune system and fight against them.
Therefore, by taking ampicillin, all you are going to achieve is to deteriorate your immune system, which is the main defensive barrier your body has.
Furthermore, this is the only one capable of eradicating the virus that is causing the appearance of genital warts (check this post for more information on how to get rid of HPV).
All this leads to the conclusion that ampicillin will only aggravate your health problem in a very short time.
Natural remedies for genital warts alternative to ampicillin
Here I am going to talk to you about a series of really useful ingredients for the problem you suffer from and that will not generate the side effects of ampicillin.
Garlic is one of the traditional remedies for the removal of warts. In fact, if you talk to your mother or grandmother about it, they will surely tell you that they have used it at some time.
What you have to do is take a clove of garlic and crush it with a kitchen hammer or a mortar as much as possible. And mix it with a little water and honey.
When you have done it, put it on the wart and cover it with a band-aid or a piece of adhesive tape. You should not leave the garlic in contact with the genital wart for more than 10 or 15 minutes.
Keep in mind that this is a very potent remedy and it can burn you. In two weeks it should have dried up.
The alkalinity of this remedy is ideal to counteract the acidity generated by the warts.
Mix a tablespoon with a couple of drops of water, apply it directly to the affected area and cover it. In a matter of days, you may get rid of the genital wart.
Lastly… what should you do if you have HPV?
These were some tips to help you know how to deal with HPV. However, there is much more you need to do if you really want to get rid of HPV and warts forever.
What you need to do is GET RID OF THE ROOT of the problem.
For that reason, I recommend you to look into Dr. Kirkland's story and how he was able to cure HPV and get rid of warts for good.
I wish you great success in your recovery!
