Hi Art!

Welcome to papillomavirus (HPV) is a member of the papillomavirus family of viruses that is capable of infecting humans. Like all papillomaviruses, HPVs establish productive infections only in the stratified epithelium of the skin or mucous membranes. The diseases caused are skin warts,genital warts and respiratory papillomatosis.Transmission is by fetomaternal,sexual contact only.There are no specific treatment as the body itself clears the viral load.The CDC recommends treatments of visible HPV genital warts that vary from patient-applied therapies such as podofilox and imiquimod to provider-administered therapies such as cryotherapy, podophyllin resin, trichloroacetic acid (TCA), bicholoracetic acid (BCA), interferon, and surgery. Prevention is the best method -by adopting safe sexual practises,limiting sexual partners will go a long way in preventing the disease.
