Warts - FAQs
Do genital warts affect pregnancy or childbirth?
Most children born to women with a history of genital warts do not experience any human papillomavirus-related complications. However, in rare cases, if warty growths do occur in an infant, it is advisable for the mother to take timely medication.
Every time I see a wart growing on my face, I pick it because it looks ugly and irritates me. Please suggest, what should I do?
Picking the wart does not cure it. In fact, picking can lead to the spreading of warts. Get medical help soon.
What if I get delayed in taking treatment for warts?
As warts are caused by a virus, they do not fall off on their own, nor do they simply fade away. Delaying the treatment will only worsen the condition. Timely treatment is, therefore, recommended.
Should one avoid sex when genital warts are present?
There is a certain risk of spreading the human papillomavirus infection that causes warts. Hence, it is advisable not to have direct genital contact while the warts are present.
Can homeopathy help in treating warts?
Definitely. Whether it is getting rid of existing warts, preventing the formation of new ones or healing the tendency to develop warts, homeopathy has a solution.
