Vaginal warts may cause cervical cancer. According to Cancer.gov, some types of sexually transmitted low-risk HPVs (Human papillomaviruses) cause warts to appear on or around the genitals or anus, but only high risk HPVs can lead to cancer.
Though only high risk HPVs can develop into cancer, it is still very important to get rid of your vaginal warts to avoid further infection that could lead to serious vaginal problems.
Signs and Symptoms
Vaginal warts are painless but there are times that they can interfere with your daily activities because some may cause skin itching. These warts usually occur in the moist areas of the vagina. In rare cases, women may experience vaginal discharge and bleeding after sexual intercourse.
The usual vaginal wart size may range from less than 1 mm to 1 cm. Most women often complain of painless bumps, itching, and bleeding.
Natural Remedies to Treat Vaginal Warts
There are lots of treatments for vaginal warts in the market but there are also natural remedies which are effective in wart removal.
The first natural remedy in removing genital warts is the use of tea tree oil. You just need to apply the oil using cotton and dab it directly onto your wart. Do this on a daily basis until it slowly shrinks and then disappears. This tea tree oil treatment could take you several weeks but you don’t need to worry. Its natural healing elements plus the fact that it has no harsh ingredients guarantee a fully recovered and wart-free vagina.
Second natural remedy is the use of a plant’s aloe gel. Same with the tea tree oil, an aloe gel’s treatment process may take several weeks. Just apply the gel directly to the wart every day until the skin becomes more vital. Do this continuously until all the warts disappear.
Lastly, you can create a paste out of onion and salt and use it to get rid of your warts. The paste is proven to help your body fight and extinguish the virus that causes vaginal warts. The paste has elements that cause the body to produce anti-bodies which could fight the HPVs.
Before trying any of the natural remedies above, it’s always best to ask advice from experts to make sure that you will be doing the right thing. Natural remedy techniques in removing vaginal warts may take some time but it’s worth the wait and hassle.
