Among the methods used in the task of healing lesions caused by HPV in women, we have medications such as salicylic acid, Imiquimod, Podofilox, and trichloroacetic acid.
Surgeries intended for this purpose are also frequently carried out by health specialists.
Lesions from HPV, such as warts, turn out to be a characteristic symptom that can form both in the genital area and in other parts of the body, which can be healed thanks to the procedures that have been developed in medicine.
We are going to expand on what the medicines and processes are about in order to add relevant information to a topic that is itself of great interest to the general public.
Medications that treat HPV lesions
Detailing the previously discussed medications to treat HPV lesions in women we have:
- Salicylic Acid: It is practically easy-to-obtain treatment, which is usually applied to warts to progressively eliminate their layers until they stop affecting the injured area.
- Imiquimod: In the case of this medication, a prescription will be necessary from the doctor, since it is a powerful cream that in some cases can cause side effects such as redness or swelling in the application area.
- Podofilox: This is another of the medications that are applied topically to the injured area in order to destroy the tissue formed by HPV warts. However, constant supervision is recommended in case of a burning or itching sensation.
- Trichloroacetic Acid: For those cases where the patient has warts in areas such as the soles of the feet or palms of the hands, this type of acid turns out to be a good option, although of course, discretion when applying said medication will be key.
In situations where the warts cannot be eliminated with these types of medications, a specialist intervention will be highly recommended, which would be the surgical process.
Surgical procedures to treat HPV lesions
In case the medications have not provided the expected results, the specialist will proceed to intervene in a slightly more aggressive way through surgery in order to remove or disintegrate the warts caused by HPV.
Among the most used procedures for the removal of warts caused by HPV is cryotherapy, where small amounts of liquid nitrogen are poured on the injured area. The amount and repetitions necessary for the elimination of the warts will depend on the number and severity of them.
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!
