Is That What Genital Warts Mean?
Hello, I want to ask: What is meant by genital warts in the vagina or outside the vagina? nSecond, in my wife’s vagina there are several small nodules, does that include genital warts and itching? Can I use podofylox ointment or TCA for warts in the vagina? Third, what are the characteristics or symptoms of genital warts itching?
Hello, Thank you for the question.
Has your wife checked herself to determine the cause of her complaint? How did you know that a small spot was found in your wife's vagina? Why I ask this, because the vaginal wall (the inside of the vagina) cannot be seen from the outside. What is visible on the outside is the lips of the vagina / labia (both labiar majora and labia minora), otherwise known as the vulva area. Please note the following picture:
Genital warts are a contagious infection caused by infection with the human papilloma virus (HPV). Genital warts are characterized by the appearance of small lumps around the genital area and anus. These lumps can feel uncomfortable, itchy, and sore. In women, genital warts can grow inside the vaginal wall, cervix, vulva (the outside of the vagina), the skin between the vagina and anus (perineum), in the anus. Genital warts can also appear on the tongue, lips, mouth and throat due to oral sex.
Small spots on the genital area can also be caused by other conditions such as folliculitis, allergic reactions, scabies, genital herpes, and others.
Before doing your own treatment, you should advise your wife to see a specialist in skin and genitals. The doctor needs to do further tests to ascertain the cause of your wife's complaint. If you have confirmed the medical condition experienced by your wife, the new doctor can determine the next treatment for your wife. Ensuring the cause is important to avoid mismanagement.
Please advise your wife to avoid intercourse until you consult a doctor. Suggest your wife to keep the genital area clean and dry. Use underwear that can absorb sweat easily. Your wife should also avoid scratching the itchy part.
Hopefully this information is useful.
