Science has determined that HPV can be eliminated by the immune system within a period of 2 years, whether in men or women.
However, it is advisable to do everything possible to eliminate it before two years, otherwise you will have more chances of suffering its consequences, such as many genital warts or even cancer.
The best recommendation for curing this sexually transmitted disease is consuming foods high in vitamins and minerals. For this, you should consume more vegetables and fruits, especially vegetables. This way, you can strengthen your immune system to be able to eliminate the virus.
Try to eat fruits and vegetables of all possible colors. Each color provides you with different vitamins and minerals that will help you eliminate human papillomavirus from your body.
How to remove genital warts caused by the papilloma virus?
Fortunately, medicine has found different ways to treat HPV, one of them being the removal of genital warts produced by the contagion of said virus in men.
But… what are the ways of eliminating warts in these types of scenarios?
Genital warts in men can be eliminated with creams or surgical procedures.
Let’s start with the treatments that are applied to the patient in the form of creams when the type of HPV has not manifested aggressively.
Creams to remove cauliflower-shaped warts
HPV or human papilloma virus usually produces cauliflower-shaped warts, and they are usually the most problematic of HPV warts (usually they are genital or around the genitals). Among the cream-based solutions we can find for HPV treatment we have:
Solutions with salicylic acid
These types of treatments are generally over-the-counter, so they have become the initial route for many people when it comes to removing warts caused by HPV.
In this type of solution, the acid takes care of progressively eliminating this symptom, although approval or proper supervision of a specialist is recommended given the irritation it can cause in the affected area.
This type of cream is widely used by specialists when it comes to removing HPV warts, as it increases the response capacity of the immune system.
However, it can cause some side effects such as skin redness and even slight swelling in the injured area after the cream is applied.
It is important to mention that this cream is not freely distributed and must be prescribed by the doctor.
If HPV or human papilloma virus is a non-aggressive one, then this cream provides good results, thanks to its ability to destroy warts.
As with Imiquimod, this cream can cause some adverse effects such as a burning sensation and itching in the treated area.
Surgical procedures to remove warts
Depending on the severity of the type of HPV that has entered the patient’s body with respect to warts or other symptoms, a more aggressive intervention may be necessary by the specialist with surgical procedures, such as the following.
Cryotherapy is one of the most commonly used procedures today to remove HPV warts, which is carried out using liquid nitrogen. This is poured in very small quantities over the warts several times until they start to fall off.
Electrocauterization is used to a lesser extent to treat HPV warts, although with good results, as it is effectively used to burn them based on small sessions of electric current.
Laser surgery is also widely used in the removal of warts resulting from HPV infection. And as its name suggests, the specialist will use a special device that emits laser for the purpose of improving the aesthetic appearance of the injured area.
Surgery with a Scalpel
Despite being one of the oldest methods, some specialists continue to use it in certain cases of warts caused by HPV.
In this procedure, the specialist carefully removes the warts from the affected area in a somewhat more manual way using a scalpel.
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!
