How can you tell if a wart is caused by papillomavirus?
At first glance, warts caused by HPV have very particular visual characteristics.
Genital warts from papilloma usually have a formation quite similar to cauliflower, accompanied by lumps of smaller or larger size.
And besides other symptoms highly related to a possible infection such as, for example:
- A mild swelling in the affected area (usually the genitals).
- Mild or strong itching sensation.
- Bleeding during sexual intercourse (once you suspect a possible HPV infection, it is almost mandatory not to have sexual intercourse until you have visited the doctor)
As we always advise, visiting the specialist doctor, in this case a gynecologist, will be vital in order to obtain reliable results about the level of danger of HPV and what types of treatments will be available from that moment on.
How can I tell if I have human papillomavirus?
To know if you have human papillomavirus, one of the main signs is to have warts somewhere on your body, especially on the genitals.
However, to discern if you have the human papillomavirus, it is essential to know the transmission routes of this virus.
Unfortunately, there are still certain popular myths about the ways in which a person can contract this sexually transmitted disease.
In order to refine your detection criteria, the first thing to mention is that unprotected sexual intercourse in an anal, vaginal, and even oral manner, are the main route of HPV transmission.
Continuing with this section, some of the myths about HPV transmission are:
- Only those people who have been highly promiscuous suffer from HPV.
- HPV is transmitted through saliva or blood.
- The risk of transmission only occurs in young adults.
- Women are more prone to HPV infection.
As one might expect, none of the above myths are founded by the scientific community, as both women and men can contract HPV at any stage of their life.
To determine an objective diagnosis about a possible infection with the human papillomavirus, a visit to the specialist will undoubtedly be the best step to take.
How is the human papillomavirus cured in women?
The human papillomavirus in women is usually eliminated within a period of 2 years through the efforts of the immune system.
However, to cure HPV in women, it is advisable to do everything possible to optimize the immune system in the shortest possible time (see this post to learn how to cure HPV).
The longer you have the virus in your body, the greater risk you run of contracting more genital warts and cervical cancer.
To have a strong immune system, you will need to start doing regular physical activity and especially consuming foods rich in vitamins and minerals. More on this later.
In scenarios where the patient presents abundant genital warts or in any other part of the body with a high risk of cancer…
… other methods such as the application of creams or surgeries are also popular alternatives that can be taken into account.
What should I eat to get rid of the human papillomavirus?
The prevention and treatment of the human papillomavirus largely falls on the efficiency of the immune system in combating a possible contagion in the body.
Therefore, with the idea of strengthening this system in the right way to fight HPV and genital warts, we present a series of foods to include in your diet.
Berries such as strawberries, cherries, blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries are essential foods for the elimination or treatment of HPV thanks to their beta-carotene content that helps to eliminate toxins quickly.
Vegetables such as carrots are also a great ally in the fight against HPV thanks to their vitamin A content. Regarding the carrot, it is recommended not to boil it for a long time in order not to waste its properties.
Nuts are also essential both in terms of prevention and treatment, as these are rich in Omega 3 acids and vitamin E, both necessary to increase defenses in the immune system.
Green vegetables are high in folic acid content, which allows for increasing defenses to avoid a possible HPV infection.
As additional recommendations, daily or at least every other day exercise will be of great help in these prevention and treatment tasks.
What happens if you have the papillomavirus and you get the vaccine?
If you have the human papillomavirus and you get the vaccine, nothing will happen, as it will not cure you.
The HPV vaccine does not eliminate the virus in patients who have already contracted any of its more than 100 variants. This is the reason why many people dismiss its application upon confirming the presence of the virus in their body.
However, it is totally advisable to apply this vaccine even in patients who already have some type of HPV.
The vaccine protects against various variants, thus avoiding extra infections that may represent a real risk to the person in question.
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!
