Published at : 30-10-2019 View : 6980

  Warts are small growths that happen when the surface of the skin becomes infected with HPV. A person can pick up this wart-causing virus by direct contact with a person who has warts or by touching the same surface that a person who has warts has touched. Warts can appear at any age but most common in older children.

SYMPTOMS OF HPV

  If you don't know it yet, HPV is short for human papillomavirus, this type of virus will have the incubation period from 2 to 9 months before appearing; During this time, HPV has no obvious symptoms, so it is very difficult to detect.

  You have to pay close attention to be able to recognize the expression of the HPV as soon as it has not developed outside specifically as follows:

  The position of growing HPV:

  HPV is transmitted through intimate skin-to-skin contact, and you can get HPV by having vaginal, anal, or oral sex with someone who has the virus, it is most commonly spread during vaginal or anal sex.

  Male genital area - Genital warts usually appear on the penis body, foreskin, glans, distal penis and/or urethra.

  Female genital area - For women, HPV usually occurs in labia minora, labia majora, vulva, and vagina, in some cases it grows in the cervix.

  The size of HPV warts:

  During the incubation period - The onset of the disease is just tiny spots, but day by day warts develop and grow bigger. The maximum size of warts is about 1-2mm.
