Genital warts is an STD infection that is a form of the human papilloma virus. This infection can be passed from person to person through contact with the skin during any form of sexual intercourse with someone who has been infected by it. Depending on the person’s body some may not have any visible signs of the condition. However, they are still able to pass it on.

Those patients who do have the warts break out on their skin will notice them in small clusters. While the warts may be small the clusters are able to spread over large areas in or around the genital area of men and women. For some people the warts will develop inside their mouth or throat after they have had oral sex with someone that was infected.

The genital wart infection is spread when the mucosal surfaces are able to penetrate the skin through cuts in the genital area or during intercourse. When inside the body the HPV virus will invade the cells. It may take a few weeks or months before any genital wart symptoms are noticed.

Over the course of a few years the infected person’s body will fight against the infection with the help of interleukins and remove it completely from the body. While there are no medicines that can cure the infection there are methods used to treat the warts and the risk of spreading the infection to others. Most people will just wait for the warts to disappear.

There are vaccinations that people can get that will help to protect them from the HPV virus. However, it is important to know that this virus can cause different problems other then genital warts, including cervical cancer. It must be taken before the person is infected and it may not be able to cure all problems caused by it.
