Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a very common sexually transmitted infection. According to the current state of medical knowledge, there is no specific treatment for HPV infection. However, the infection, more often than not, clears up by itself by itself, usually with one to two years.
In the United States HPV has been estimated to be the most common sexually transmitted infection. It is thought that most sexually active men and women will probably acquire genital HPV infection at some point in their lives and The American Social Health Association has estimated that about 75-80 per cent of sexually active Americans will be infected with HPV at some point in their life.
Most HPV infections in young females are temporary and do not last long. Seventy per cent of infections have cleared up in one year and ninety per cent of infections within 2 years.
Against this positive picture, there is a small minority of cases where the infection persists and this can raise the risk of precancerous cells forming in the cervix.
The commonest sign of PHV infection is the appearance of genital warts, although it is possible to be infected without showing such symptoms..
There are many different types of HPV viruses, some of which result in warts and some which do not. Most people who acquire genital wart-associated HPV types get over the infection rapidly without ever developing warts or any other symptoms.
According to numerous medical authorities, there is currently no specific treatment for HPV infection. However, the viral infection, more often than not, clears by itself. According to the Centers for Disease Control, the body’s immune system gets rid of HPV naturally within two years in 90 per cent of cases. (NO SUCH STATEMENT COULD BE FOUND ON THE CDC'S WEBSITE!)
Some people have tried remedies such as Samoxol and have reported that it appears to less the appearance of warts. Others have tried it and reported no such improvement. There seems to be no reason why you should not try this remedy - it’s your money.
