 warts in women
 Warts in women - a sign of chronic viral infection caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). Sometimes HPV, implemented in a woman's body, does not manifest itself and the woman does not know what is its carrier. In other cases, the warts occur again and again, even against the background of intensive treatment.

As infected HPV infection

The causative agent of human papillomavirus infection is widespread among the population. Some researchers believe, after the start of sexual activity, more than half of people are its carriers.

HPV is transmitted primarily through sexual contact. But very close and the use of linen and it can be transmitted through everyday. Today found a lot of HPV subtypes. It found that some of them (e.g., types 6 and 11) cause genital warts are generally not susceptible to regeneration in cancer (although any case, sometimes the cause of genital warts cancer). Other subtypes of the same (16, 18, and so on.) Cause flat warts, which often degenerate into malignant tumors, particularly if they are located on the cervix. It was also established that for HPV infection has a clear link with immunity - when reducing the relapse of the disease and the growth of regular warts.

HPV infection is not yet fully explored, however, is already known as a pathogen enters the body, and it causes the growth of warts. Study of HPV continues as a wide spread of this infection and complications caused by rivet attention to her doctors.

How does HPV infection in women

HPV infection in women is manifested in the form of genital warts and flat Flat warts - the most dangerous form  Flat warts - the most dangerous form
 . Genital warts are growths grayish-pink or flesh-colored with a narrow base and a sprawling cauliflower top, prone to mergers. Most of these entities appears on the genitals several women. They grow quickly (a few hours) and remain in this state for a long time.

But this is not always the case. Sometimes HPV does not manifest itself (usually associated with good immunity), in other cases, "thickets" warts grow, merge and form a huge "cockscomb" or conglomerates, resembling a cauliflower.

Most often, genital warts grow on the mucous membranes and the skin of the external genitalia of women - in large and small labia, the clitoris, the vestibule, and around the walls of the urethra (urethritis) and anus. Sometimes they appear on the skin of the thighs and the perineum. Rarely, genital warts develop on the walls of the vagina and the mucous membrane of the cervix - here they are most often isolated.

At considerable sprawl genital warts disturbed sexual life of women, sometimes broken as acts of urination and defecation. For large warts woman difficult to walk, warts permanently injured, bleeding, to the viral infection can be attached bacterial-fungal and the entire conglomerate begins to fester, emitting a fetid smell.

Flat warts are never found in large quantities. They are often located deep cervical mucosa and grow into tissue, rather than outward, as genital warts. Outwardly, they are almost invisible, so is not always detected even during a gynecological examination. It is the most dangerous type of warts - flat warts contribute to the emergence of cervical dysplasia - a disease that is considered to be precancerous, as modified cells of the basal layer of the epithelium of the cervix. In turn, dysplasia started (if it is not identified and not treat) in most cases is transformed into cancer.

Flat warts are trying to identify as early as possible, examine the women for cervical dysplasia, and then remove the warts.

What diseases can be mistaken for viral warts

There is another kind of warts - extensive warts, which are one of the manifestations of secondary syphilis Secondary syphilis - can proceed unnoticed for several years  Secondary syphilis - can proceed unnoticed for several years
 . For the specialist is usually easy to distinguish from the broad genital warts. However, a mandatory blood test for syphilis Syphilis - punishment of Venus  Syphilis - punishment of Venus

Another mandatory analysis detection of genital warts - an HIV infection, since HPV infection always manifests itself due to lower immunity.

How to treat warts in women

If a woman has warts are found, it is assigned a complex treatment. General treatment - is the suppression of vital activity of HPV and strengthen immunity Strengthening the immune system - help the immune system  Strengthening the immune system - help the immune system
 . Small genital warts sometimes disappear on their own.

Topical treatment for small warts is topical use of antiviral and immunomodulating medications. If warts tend to grow, they are removed. Flat warts are removed along with the altered epithelium.

Latent syphilis - risk of delayed treatment assignment

 latent syphilis
 Latent syphilis - a form of syphilis, which is recorded in a growing number of patients. This is explained on the one hand the improvement of detection of syphilis, and the other - the frequent use of antibiotics for other illnesses that "lubricate" the symptoms of syphilis Symptoms of syphilis - it is important to recognize at an early stage  Symptoms of syphilis - it is important to recognize at an early stage


What is a hidden form of syphilis

Hidden forms of syphilis occurs often enough today. The disease begins as usual, with the infection, but after the incubation period, no clinical symptoms does not appear. The only sign of syphilis Symptoms of syphilis - they may not be noticed  Symptoms of syphilis - they may not be noticed
   a positive serological reactions, which develop in about 1-1, 5 months after infection. The disease can be asymptomatic for a long time and with minimal manifestations in the form of implicit rash on the skin. Latent syphilis may be an early, late and unspecified.


Early latent syphilis

If latent syphilis was discovered within two years from the time of infection, it is considered early. Typically, early latent forms of syphilis are primary syphilis, secondary and secondary fresh latency. This dangerous form of syphilis, especially the fact that the patient can be a source of infection to their sexual partners and close relatives, living with him in the same apartment.

It reveals a syphilis mostly during examination for other diseases or prophylactic examinations. The patient found seropositive for syphilis, which indicates the presence of high titers of antibodies to syphilis (Treponema pallidum). Most often for syphilis serological tests carried out in the first place Wasserman.

Positive Wasserman does not always speak the presence of syphilis, so held and additional laboratory and clinical examination.

During the clinical examination can sometimes detect packed lymph nodes altered skin at the site of the chancre, some patients during questioning remember that the body there is some subtle as rash, it held their own and so on. These features can be diagnosed early latent syphilis.

Sometimes early latent syphilis Syphilis - punishment of Venus  Syphilis - punishment of Venus
   It manifested in the form of internal organ involvement. Basically defeat a functional character, develops due to intoxication and respond well to treatment. Often in such cases, it affects the liver, stomach, thyroid gland, joints and long bones of the limbs.

There is also an early neurosyphilis - damage to the nervous system, it develops within the first five years after infection. Characterized by early neurosyphilis defeat of the meninges and blood vessel walls. Hidden syphilitic meningitis can occur unnoticed for a long time, but sometimes patients complain of mild headaches, dizziness, hearing impairment. No forms were treated with neurosyphilis may become severe disorders of the central nervous system.


Late latent syphilis

Latent syphilis, detected after two years from the time of infection, it is considered late. Such syphilis is less dangerous to others, as in most cases, patients are no longer infectious to others. This syphilis can occur without cutaneous manifestations. But often patients complain of various disorders of the internal organs. These are symptoms of latent syphilis internal organs (visceral syphilis).

Since the most common type of visceral syphilis is the defeat of the cardiovascular system, such patients can be long and unsuccessfully treated for heart disease - myocarditis, aortitis, coronary heart disease. Less affected other organs - liver, stomach, pancreas, intestines, lungs.

Late neurosyphilis developed after five years from the moment of infection and can also occur hidden.

By the late neurosyphilis hidden forms include, for example, late latent syphilitic meningitis Meningitis - an inflammation of the meninges  Meningitis - an inflammation of the meninges
 Which usually occurs without symptoms or minimal symptoms as headaches or hearing impairment, but if untreated, may progress to severe forms of neurosyphilis.

There is also an unspecified kind of latent syphilis, when you can not identify the time of infection.


Treatment of latent syphilis

Treatment Early latent syphilis treatment is carried out by methods common forms of the disease. With proper and adequate treatment can cure the disease completely.

Treatment of late latent syphilis is difficult, as in this case, various internal organs and in the brain develop structural changes that are difficult to treat.

Latent syphilis requires timely detection and adequate treatment.
