Therapy is recommended for Preventative measures, as well as Physical examination of Exterior Genital Infections.
The perigenital and perianal regions can develop visible warts called external genital warts (EGWs). They are mostly caused by non-oncogenic forms of the human papillomavirus (HPV), typically types 6 and 11. The preferred method for making a primary diagnosis is physical examination aided by bright light and magnification. EGWs should be biopsied if they are discoloured, fixed to underlying structures, or if conventional therapy are ineffective. There is no one treatment that is better than others for recurrences, which are frequent. Molecular HPV testing among women with atypical squamous cells may be helpful in deciding which women need to be referred for colposcopy. It is advised to use condoms in new sexual encounters and in non-monogamy situations since they may offer some protection against HPV-related infections. Cesarean sections are not advised because it has not been demonstrated that they are effective in avoiding vertical transmission of HPV infection from women with EGWs to their offspring.Author(s): Kupets Rachel
