Good evening, thanks for the question
Akuminata condyloma is a benign wart on the genitals caused by infection with human papilloma virus (HPV) low risk serotype 6 and 11. HPV infection is characterized by the growth of benign tumors in the form of a skin-colored stem, and sometimes accompanied by itching, heat, pain or bleeding . Most of the condyloma akuminata occur in the vaginal opening, pubic lips, perineum and the area around the anus in women.
HPV infection is mostly transmitted through anal, oral, or vaginal sexual contact and is also possible in non-penetrative relationships. Non-sexual contact can occur, among others, during pregnancy, through autoinoculation due to poor hygiene or through non-living objects (fomites) contaminated with viruses or through medical equipment.
Diagnosis is made through symptoms, assessment of the risk of transmission, and direct physical examination. Treatment options include cryotherapy, podophylline, trichloroacetic acid, excision, electrosurgery, interferon injection tailored to the patient's medical condition. If it is known to have been caused by a sexually transmitted infection, it is advisable to use a condom, not changing partners and avoiding risky sex. In addition, you will be advised to carry out the HPV vaccine.
We recommend to do an evaluation and physical examination directly with the doctor first to ascertain whether genital warts are due to HPV infection. If it is known for sure, the future treatment plan will be more directed.
That's all, hope you can help
