Sexually active people are more likely to contract HPV and it mostly attacks the skin membrane. For this reason, its treatment requires them to have extensive knowledge about its background, what its prevention and cure requires them to do and the possible complications that it can cause in case it leads to a subsequent infection. According to doctors, the more than one hundred HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) varieties that have their recognition do not cause any harm to the human skin. However, the few varieties that they consider harmful lead to the development of warts. Unfortunately, cancer can develop because of these warts.
The parts of the body whose skin is most likely to touch that of other people who are already victims of the virus such as the private parts, face, feet, hands and mouth, whose cases are the highest so far, experience the most severe effects of the (in Greek κονδυλώματα) . Women and men have different manifestations of this virus. Severe viral infections affect women while the development of warts on the penises affects men. Pap tests and cervical checks, which should be done on a regular basis, have become a necessity for women because they help in the prevention of cervical cancer and HPV. Immediate treatment is highly recommended for any man or woman who suspects that he/she has this virus or has already contracted it.
Just like other treatment processes, the best place to start the process of treating HPV is a proper understanding of the ways in which people contract it. Doctors can help the affected people and especially those who slightly understand how they got the infection to accept and deal with their individual situations by giving them the possible scenarios that may have led to its development. The treatment of this virus would produce better results if they do so. This infection can also occur due to indirect contact, which means that if people use certain items that people who are already infected with HPV have used can contract it.
