Are there any natural remedies for hpv? To embarrassed to go see a doctor about it.

Yes for topical HPV: Yes, small amounts of vinegar can be applied with a cotton tipped applicator to small, external genital condyloma, but usually a stronger, trichloroacetic acid solution is more effective at treating genital condyloma infections which are caused by hpv (human papilloma virus). Also, taking a daily multivitamin and eating a diet high in antioxidants can help boost one's immune system and fight hpv.

Hpv (Definition)

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection. There are over 100 different types of HPV that causes warts in different areas of the body. HPV is incredibly common and almost all sexually active men and women get it during their lifetime. Most of the time HPV does not cause any symptoms or complications. However, A limited number of these HPV viruses are pathogenic and if not monitored carefully can be responsible for causing cervical and penile cancer. Some of these viruses have been ...Read more

What is the most common treatment/cure for HPV for men over 20?

What is the most common treatment/cure for HPV for men over 20?

Several options...: Hpv therapy falls into two general categories. The first is direct destruction of visible lesions using either cryosurgery (freezing), mild acids, podophyllum, electrosurgery ("cauterization") or laser. The second is prescription topical medications used to destroy the lesions and/or eliminate the virus. These include Aldara (imiquimod) cream, veregan ointment and condylox (podofilox) gel.

Can you tell me the best treatment for Severe Squamous dysplasia? Can my body cure itself of this? Will the HPV vaccine help?

Can you tell me the best treatment for Severe Squamous dysplasia? Can my body cure itself of this? Will the HPV vaccine help?

Severe dysplasia: The HPV vaccine is to prevent dysplasia and does not treat it once you have it. The best treatment depends on many factors including your age, your desire for more children, and the resources/treatment options available where you live as well as the expertese of the practioner. Some treatment is advisable since it would be rare but not impossible for your body to take care of this atage of dysplasia

I have hpv. I know there is no cure. It has caused me to have chronic lower back pain and pain in my upper thigh. Is there treatment for those symptoms?

I have hpv. I know there is no cure. It has caused me to have chronic lower back pain and pain in my upper thigh. Is there treatment for those symptoms?

Not related: The symptoms you describe are not due to hpv infection. Hpv causes either benign warts or pre cancerous skin changes. The only reason one could have back pain/ leg pain is if there is advanced cervical cancer.

How can my husband get treatment for hpv?

Urologist: Most males with condyloma on the genitals are treated by urologists. Some family physicians also treat this. The surgical options are best handled by a urologist (eg laser treatment).

If you are diagnosed with HPV is there any treatment also does it shortin the life span?

If you are diagnosed with HPV is there any treatment also does it shortin the life span?

Long term issue: Hpv is a member of a class of dna viruses that tends to stay in your system long term. Like a cold sore it can surface & disappear many tomes. The warts that some strains cause can clear spontaneously over a few years, be lasered off or distroyed by topical meds but they can return years later.

Not all HPV goes away. Why do doctors wait til age 30 to offer treatment? Some test before but not all. If have high grade at 30 what is the treatment?

Not all HPV goes away. Why do doctors wait til age 30 to offer treatment? Some test before but not all. If have high grade at 30 what is the treatment?

HPV: I know of no physician, especially those serving women, who would ever wait till 30 to do a pap smear. The pap smear is the basic test for hpv related cervical changes. The only reliable test for hpv in a pap smear is fairly new called the hybrid hpv dna test and is offered at each pap smear. American medicine has no standard of care that would postpone this important test until thirty.

Isn't my doctor supposed to give me treatment for hpv?

?? Treatment??: The wart strains do have some available treatments, while the others are just monitored. The immune system will eventually clear the primary infection. However, this family of virus strains tend to stay in your system forever, treatment or not. Try to get more info from your source of care.

Can HPV ever go away? Is there a treatment?

Yes and no: Many (most? All?) HPV infections persist indefinitely, in that HPV DNA remains in cells in the previously infected area. However, the immune system usually controls the infection to a point that the DNA cannot be detected, actual disease (e.g., warts, abnormal pap smear) do not return, and the virus can't be transmitted to partners. So for practical purposes, it's cured and gone.

Is there a treatment for HPV in older women?

Is there a treatment for HPV in older women?

Same as younger: The few strains that produce visible warts are treated the same at any age. Non-wart strains have no treatment. Women were doing pap smears to monitor the potential cancer association of those strains for decades before we understood the link to various HPV strains. There is now a vaccine that can help avoid HPV if given before you are exposed but it doesn't "treat"anything.

Is there an effective treatment for HPV alternative way?

Is there an effective treatment for HPV alternative way?

Be patient.: There is no "cure" that we know of, other than time and mother nature. Keeping your immune system in shape (good nutrition, avoiding hormonal contraceptives, avoiding tobacco) may shorten the duration of the infection, which can last for many years, even decades.

I'm curious as to what is the treatment for men with hpv?

I'm curious as to what is the treatment for men with hpv?

Treat only symptoms: There is no treatment for hpv infection in men if no symptoms. If there are genital warts those can be treated with variety f treatments with creams locallyor surgical removal. If there is advanced hpv infection like anal cancer it can be treated early treatments of warts is not recommended ue to increased risk of recurrence.

Me and my husband had condilomas (HPV) 3 years ago. Since the treatment then I do not have any but his reappear beside treatment each time. Why?

It happens: Unfortunately this germ comes from a family of viruses that tend to persist in your system for your lifetime. While the initial lesions may clear with treatment or naturally, they can reappear.

Can men be treated to get rid of of HPV like women do? How? What treatment should they go through? What needs to be done? Surgery?!

Can men be treated to get rid of of HPV like women do? How? What treatment should they go through? What needs to be done? Surgery?!

None: At this time there is no treatment to rid a person of the HPV virus, . That is why we are vaccinating young men and women against the most common cancer causing strains of the virus men who are positive should use a condom to prevent spread of the virus

Hi, I had HPV lesions lasting for the last 8 months, I decide to go for lazer treatment now, will it affect my sex partner in future?

Hi, I had HPV lesions lasting for the last 8 months, I decide to go for lazer treatment now, will it affect my sex partner in future?

HPV is everywhere.: It is estimated that most sexually active americans are exposed to hpv strains by age 26. I do not understand your question in the light of that. Your sex partner if already sexually active is most likely to have already been exposed.

Never had a normal smear test. After 4 colposcopies & 1 treatment I finally had a normal result however HPV found. Can this be linked to endo?

No: HPV (human papilloma virus) is what causes abnormal pap smears, genital warts, precancerous cells on the cervix and cancers such as cervical, vaginal, vulvar and anal. It has nothing to do with endometriosis

I have to have a lietz treatment in my cervix for HPV. I also got told I have cysts, is that from HPV?

I have to have a lietz treatment in my cervix for HPV. I also got told I have cysts, is that from HPV?

LEEP?: "Lietz"? Or LEEP (loop electrosurgical excision procedure)? I'm not sure it's necessary -- pap smears aren't even recommended at your age. Below 25-30, almost all cervical HPV infections clear on their own, even if dysplasia is present. Discuss w/ doc or get 2nd opinion at one of Australia's excellent government funded sexual health centres. Nabothian cysts are normal at age 19, not caused by HPV.

I just found out I have high risk hpv. What are my treatment options?

I just found out I have high risk hpv. What are my treatment options?

Relax/none needed: This result justs helps motivate you to have regular pap smears & follow ups. This gives you the chance to find & treat changes triggered by these strains before they transition to cancer.The germ has no specific treatment, like a strep throat, since it is a virus.The primary infection clears, but the potential for worrisome changes remains. However, these may never happen or take decades.
