Genital Warts – A Taboo?November 8, 2017 Posted by: Dr. Manoj 2,010 views
Most of us have felt some level of discomfort and embarrassment to talk about a certain health condition to other people. Right?
There are many conditions which occur in our body which we cannot always talk about on a general basis.
Sometimes, some of these conditions are too personal and we get afraid that talking about it to other people might make them judge us and talk about us in a negative or different way.
Hence, we keep it to ourselves and try to understand and figure out ways to treat these conditions.
Now, one such condition which people often get uncomfortable talking about is Genital Warts.
Genital warts is a sexually transmitted infection where there are certain lumps or growth of the skin formed on the skin of the body near the genitals of a man or a woman due to the Human Papillomavirus(HPV).
Before going to the part where people often consider genital warts as a taboo topic, which it is not, it is essential that everyone knows how and why genital warts occur in our bodies.
Genital warts is a disease which occurs due to a particular virus and is usually transmitted from one person to another through direct skin contact. Since the growth and lumps of skin form a cluster in the genital area of a person, the virus is transferred during oral, genital or anal sex.
Genital Warts – A Taboo Topic?
In a country such as India, most of the diseases or conditions revolving around the genitals of a person is usually considered a taboo.
The primary cause of genital warts is HPV and research has proven that most of the sexually active people are affected by the virus at least once in their lives. Now, whether the virus leads to the formation of genital warts is the question.
In men, genital warts usually occur in:
In women, genital warts are usually seen in:
- Inside the vagina or anus
- Outside the vagina or anus
It is true that for most people talking about having genital warts is a matter of misdemeaning oneself. But it is very important that people should talk about this so that the treatment for this can be made better and more efficient as well. Homeopathy has been pathbreaking in the field of warts and has proven to cure warts in most cases.
Even if a person is not comfortable speaking about his or her condition of genital warts on a face to face basis, we at Dr. Manoj’s clinic have an online consultation system where people with this condition can express their doubts and concerns. At Dr Manoj’s Homeopathy, we ensure that you don’t live with any health condition just because you are embarrassed to talk about it. Our online consultations are meant for such patients who feel comfortable consulting a doctor from behind the screen.
It needs to be understood that genital warts is not a result of any kind of unhealthy habit. The sole cause of this condition is HPV virus so if there are people who have this condition and think that this is caused because of some unhealthy habit of theirs, IT IS NOT THE CASE.
To conclude, the condition of genital warts is not a taboo. It is perceived to be one as most people get uncomfortable talking about problems in their genital area. It is just a normal condition which can be treated with great care and efficiency with homeopathy.
