Vaginal warts are soft growths that appear on the walls of the vagina or inside the vagina. Vaginal warts are the most common type of sexually transmitted infection. They often have a cauliflower-like appearance or look small bumps on the vaginal skin of the same color of the flesh. Vaginal warts are broadly known as genital warts, the scientific name of which is condyloma acuminatum.
Genital warts are often caused by small strains of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) such as HPV6 and HPV 11. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), every sexually active person is at risk of getting HPV, including genital warts. As published in Healthline, there are 30 to 40 strains of HPV that specifically affect the genitals, but just a few of these strains cause genital warts. As reported by The Hans India, female genital warts have been reported in 2-25 percent of sexually transmitted disease clinic attendees in India.

Diagnosis and Treatment - Vaginal Warts Removal
Diagnosis of vaginal warts
A gynecologist can often diagnose an external vaginal wart by looking at it. However, an internal vaginal wart might be a little challenging to diagnose and requires any of the following tests:
Pap Test – Pap test and pelvic exams can help detect vaginal and cervical abnormalities caused by warts. The test can also identify early signs of cervical cancer.
HPV test – An HPV test is usually done in women over 30 years of age. This test is run to detect the presence of cancer-causing strains of HPV in and around vaginal warts.
Biopsy – In cases where the above-mentioned diagnostic tests fail to indicate the nature of the genital wart, the gynecologist may recommend a biopsy.

At Pristyn Care, vaginal warts are either treated by medications or laser treatment.
Topical treatments for vaginal warts include Imiquimod (Aldara), Trichloroacetic Acid, and Podophyllin and Podofilox (Condylox). Medications are recommended for very small size vaginal warts that cannot be removed through the laser procedure.
