Genital warts are caused by a virus that is almost always transmitted through sexual contact. Genital warts are benign. You can contract the virus through direct contact of the genitals. But also via someone's fingers or a used towel.
Not everyone who gets the virus develops warts. You can still pass on the virus.
Genital warts can expand and grow considerably. That is why rapid treatment is important. If you wait longer and the warts spread, the duration of treatment will increase.
If you think you have genital warts, then make an appointment at P&G Zevenhuizen.
You can treat warts yourself by regularly applying a cream or liquid. This cream must be prescribed by a doctor. Sometimes, warts are in a difficult place, so you cannot treat them properly yourself (for example, in the vagina). Then the doctor will treat the warts by freezing or surgical excision, of course under anaesthesia. Because it is a viral STI, it stays in your body. That means they can return after treatment. This does not always happen.
