Genital warts (Condylomata acuminata) are sexually transmitted, and are caused by a virus called human papilloma virus (HPV). The virus is spread during skin-to-skin sexual contact, including vaginal, anal, and sometimes oral sex. There are more than 60 types of HPV, and several types can cause genital area warts.

The places these warts appear include the penis, in or around the vagina, vulva, cervix, and around the anus. Most often they are painless, but sometimes they can cause burning, itching or slight bleeding. They can appear as small pink or red bumps, or resemble white to flesh colored lesions, which can be flat or raised. You can have a single wart, or cluster of them.

Once exposed to the virus, it is unknown when the symptoms will appear. In some people, warts will appear in just a few weeks. Others will not show any genital wart symptoms for several years. It is therefore difficult to determine when you were exposed to the virus.

Genital Wart Symptoms

Symptoms include:

  • Itchiness. This includes the penis, scrotum, anal area, vulva (vulvar itch).
  • Increased dampness near the growths.
  • Women can have an increase in vaginal discharge.
  • The growths can resemble cauliflower near the anus or genitals.

Many people with the disease will have no symptoms or signs. Whether you show symptoms or not, if you are infected with the HPV virus, you are contagious and can pass it to others.

We will now go over the most effective treatment for pubic warts.


Surgical treatments include freezing them, cutting them or burning them off. However these treatments are very painful, can be expensive, and can lead to permanent scarring or disfigurement. Also, there is no guarantee the warts just won’t grow back.

We have been recommending a much safer and more effective alternative. This two way treatment not only eliminates current warts, but also helps to build up your immune system to prevent future outbreaks. For more information on the best genital wart treatment, follow this link to Terrasil.

Terrasil has one of the highest success rates of any pubic wart medication, and the manufacturer guarantees it to work or you can get a full refund.


Abstinence is the only 100% effective way to avoid these warts. Condoms are not 100% effective since there can still be skin-to-skin contact during sex. Condoms do however, reduce your chances of getting sexually transmitted diseases, and should be used.

Having a monogamous relationship with a disease free person will help you avoid all sexually transmitted diseases.
