Human Papilloma Virus
HPV is short for Human Papilloma virus. It is the virus that causes genital warts infections and is highly contagious. It is one of the most common virus infections in humans. If you have an HPV infection you may not necessarily develop warts on your body. Genital warts are the outward manifestations of the Human papilloma virus. The genital warts are commonly mistaken for the disease itself and after treatment most patients wonder why the warts have reoccurred.
The re-occurrence happens because there is no reported cure for the human papilloma virus. Your body may fight off the virus completely but this is not always the case, some victims have been known to continue to suffer from it for months or even years. Having the human papilloma virus does not mean that you are without hope; there are ways of fighting the virus completely or keeping it at bay.
In the case of the dreaded genital warts, a simple lifestyle change will surely work wonders, avoid having multiple sex partners and sticking to one sex partner would be the best way to avoid HPV infections. Visit your doctor and he will advice you on ways to control your infection such as healthy diets etc, if you are not willing to take the long route then you can always opt for medicines or surgery. Remember that there is no cure for the HPV; but the medicines will not get rid of the virus but they will help your body fight it off.
