Anal Warts – Symptoms, Causes and Treatments

Anal warts are generally known as Anal Genital, Condylomata Acuminata or Venereal Genital warts. These are viral infections of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and appear on the anus of a human.
Many individuals infected with HPV do not have external signs and may not know they are infected with this virus. They differ in sizes, some may be like tiny bumps or a large cauliflower shaped. Infections which arise outside the rectum are called peri-anal; those which arise inside the rectum are called intra-anal. Minor bleeding will result from bowel movement or anal sex. Without proper treatment anal warts may result in bowel obstruction.  They are highly contagious and usually appear from sexual contact with infected person.
Anal warts are the external symptoms of a viral infection which may endure indefinitely in the tissues around the affected area. Treatments are needed to remove them as well as  to reduce the possibility of spreading the strains of HPV. Removal of an anal wart is not the proper cure because the virus may reappear on the skin. Anal wart treatments include topical antiviral solutions, topical chemical solutions, cryotherapy, immunotherapy, electro surgery, and surgical removal.
Abstaining from sex with wart affected person is the best way to avoid contracting the virus. Use of dental dam (female sexual barrier device) or condom is recommended for any and all sexual activity.
