The human papilloma virus, like any other infectious agent, requires complex therapy. Treatment depends on the type of HPV, its oncogeneity and a number of other factors. The main direction in the treatment is the removal of outgrowths in conjunction with the course of antiviral therapy.

The doctor is responsible for the treatment of HPV. The doctor takes into account the results of the diagnosis and such factors as:

  • Concentration of the virus.
  • Risk of malignancy.
  • Severity of external symptoms.
  • Degree of epithelial damage.

It also takes into account the presence of concomitant pathologies, since papillomatosis very often occurs in conjunction with other diseases. If after a comprehensive examination only HPV is detected, the treatment consists of:

  • Reception of antiviral drugs.
  • Increase the protective properties of the immune system with immunomodulators.
  • Vitaminization of the body.
  • Removal of skin defects.
  • Alternative means.

If a woman is diagnosed with cervical dysplasia in the presence of a viral lesion, the course of treatment includes taking cytotoxic drugs or other medications to suppress the growth of existing and emerging new atypical cells. If HPV is diagnosed during pregnancy, then the treatment is carried out in the last trimester, when the fetus has formed all the organs and medicines will not cause congenital pathologies.

Can I cure HPV?

Many people, faced with such a disease as human papillomavirus, make erroneous conclusions about the outcome of this problem. Some believe that the virus can be completely eliminated, while others believe that the infection always leads to cancer and death.

When HPV is infected, the concept of "curing a virus" is not used. To date, there simply are no drugs that completely kill and remove infectious strains from the body. But there are medicines that inhibit the activity of pathogenic microorganisms and contribute to the recovery of the body after the diseases that the virus causes.

Also, one should take into account the fact that HPV is not always dangerous for the body. Only genotypes with high oncogenic risk pose a serious threat to the development of cancer diseases. In any case, timely application for medical help and comprehensive diagnosis will prevent possible complications of Human papillomavirus and suppress its activity.

Drug therapy is an indispensable component of the treatment of papillomavirus. Medicines are chosen by the attending physician, individually for each patient. When choosing a medicine, the strain of the virus, its quantitative indices, the presence of concomitant diseases and the degree of oncogeneity of HPV are taken into account.

The human papillomavirus is most often manifested by such growths: papillomas, warts, condylomas. They are localized not only on the skin, but also on the mucous membranes. They can be of different sizes, shapes and colors.

Very often skin deformities are injured, delivering painful sensations and increasing the risk of their infection. Surgical treatment is an effective method aimed at removing pathological growths.

There are such methods of surgical treatment of papillomatosis:

  1. Laser destruction - growths are removed with a laser beam. This method is characterized by the least traumatism. The laser sutures the blood vessels that feed the papillomas. The phased removal of diseased tissue does not affect the healthy layers. After the procedure, there is scarring and scarring left. Complete healing takes about 2-3 weeks.
  2. Surgical operation - removal of tumors is performed under local anesthesia with the help of a scalpel. On the operated tissues impose a special plaster and bandage. After such treatment there are scars and scars. Another drawback of the method is the risk of bleeding during surgery and incomplete removal of infected cells.
  3. Cryodestruction - removal of outgrowths is carried out with the help of liquid nitrogen. The procedure is a freezing of sprouting, which after this themselves fall away. The disadvantage of this method is that it is difficult to control the depth of the effect of freezing. Too deep nitrogen damage causes serious scars, and insufficient exposure requires a repeat procedure.
  4. Radio wave surgery - papillomas are cut with a radio wave knife. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia so that the patient does not experience pain. This method has high accuracy. After it, there are no burns or other complications.
  5. Electrocoagulation - affects the affected tissue with an electric shock that destroys cells affected by HPV. The current of high frequency leads to the coagulation of protein tissues and cauterization of the wound formed. This method has a low risk of bleeding and subsequent infection.

Removal of tumors is performed by a surgeon or a cosmetologist. This method of treatment is suitable for patients of all ages.

How to live with a human papillomavirus?

Modern methods of treatment of the papilloma virus can suppress its active course and spread. With the help of various surgical techniques one can get rid of cutaneous manifestations of papillomatosis, which cause aesthetic discomfort and very often lead to psychological problems.

If the detected virus has medium or increased oncogeneity, then the patient is waiting for an extended course of treatment, which consists of taking antiviral, immunostimulating, anti-inflammatory and some other drugs. In malignant tumors, conservative therapy and surgery are performed to remove the affected tissues in combination with exposure to oncogenic cells (radiation irradiation, chemotherapy).

Despite the fact that it is impossible to completely rid of the virus, a comprehensive therapeutic approach allows for a long time to transfer it to the dormant stage. Thanks to this, the patient can lead a full-fledged healthy lifestyle, while not forgetting about maintaining the immune system.

Self-cure for human papillomavirus

Faced with such a problem as papillomatosis, some patients note self-healing from the virus. Similar cases take place, but they only concern infection with strains with low oncogeneity.

In this case, self-elimination of infection indicates a strong immune system, which suppressed pathogens. It should also be noted that the virus can be in the body for a long time in a dormant state. Prophylaxis of HPV in combination with strengthening immunity will not allow it to become more active.
