12 Facts You Should Know About Genital Warts
How to heal warts more quickly and prevent new ones
Genital warts can be external, on the outside areas of your reproductive organs, or they can appear internally where you cannot see them. Internal warts can develop on the cervix, urethra, anus or inside the vagina, according to the New Zealand Dermatological Society's information resource Dermnet NZ 2. All genital warts are caused by strains of HPV, or human papilloma virus. Removing internal warts does not eradicate the virus from your body, but simply eliminates the protrusions. Topical solutions in the form of creams, acids or other liquid chemicals can be used in some cases to treat internal warts.
