Treatment of genital warts in men
It should be remembered that genital warts in men are benign neoplasms, but tend to degenerate into an oncological disease. Proceeding from this, treatment of genital warts in men reduces to the removal of this pathology, regardless of the size, shape and location. The excised tissue is necessarily sent to a biopsy (the collection of tissue cells of the body for further investigation).
If the diagnosis is established, the doctor signs the treatment, which is aimed at solving a number of problems:
- Enhancement of the immune defense of the male body.
- Deactivation of the pathogenic virus. To my great regret, today's medical methods are impossible to completely rid the body of the papilloma virus.
- At the same time, there is a stopping of another detected infection.
Now we will understand in more detail the peculiarities of treatment of genital warts in men.
The protocol of this therapy, in addition to the removal of genital warts, includes the use of antiviral and immunostimulating drugs.
High therapeutic efficacy is indicated by the use of such antiviral, immunomodulating medications as panavir, geviran, immunomax, famvir, ribavirin, acyclovir, imunofan, inharone, erazaba, isoprinosine, ferrovir, drivir and many other drugs.
The solution of panavir is injected very slowly, jetting into the vein. During the first week of therapy, injections are administered three times with a difference of 48 hours or twice with a difference of 72 hours. The recommended therapeutic amount of medication administered is 200 μg, which corresponds to one ampoule or one vial of the drug.
If the doctor is prescribed this drug in the form of rectal suppositories, they are injected into the rectum one suppository three times during one week with an interval of 72 or 48 hours. This interval is determined by the attending physician depending on the severity of the pathological changes.
If the clinical picture requires re-treatment, then the course of therapy can be repeated in a month.
Panavir is contraindicated for use if the patient suffers from an individual intolerance to the component composition, with a tendency to allergic reactions to such substances as arabinose, mannose, xylose, glucose, rhamnose, and the patient's age to 12 years.
Isoprinosine, when taken orally, is washed down with the necessary amount of liquid so that the preparation does not crush. The most effective time to enter the medication is immediately after a meal. The recommended daily dosage for adult patients is 50 mg per kilogram of patient weight divided into three to four doses. This amount corresponds to approximately six to eight tablets.
In case of severe infection, the dose of the prescribed isoprinosine can be doubled and taken at the rate of 100 mg per kilogram of the patient's weight, but already divided into four to six meals per day.
The maximum daily amount of the drug administered should not exceed 3 to 4 g.
The duration of treatment, on average, is from five days to two weeks.
In case of a recurrent disease, the doctor appoints the patient to take two tablets three times during the day. The duration of therapy can be from two to four weeks.
The drug is prohibited for prescription if the patient has a history of hypersensitivity to the component composition of the drug, gout, kidney dysfunction, and cardiac arrhythmia.
Perfectly work on improving the immune system, such drugs as echinacea, immunal, tincture of eleutherococcus. All of them are plant-based and under certain conditions are more preferable in the appointment.
The tincture of Eleutherococcus is taken by the patient for a month every half an hour before the expected meal. To get the expected effect, it will be enough to drink twenty to thirty drops of tincture.
During the treatment it is desirable to refrain from taking coffee, strong tea, alcoholic beverages and smoking, you should adjust and normalize your diet. There are cases when compliance with all the recommendations of a specialist led to an independent resolution of the pathology (the body coped with the disease itself).
Very often, more radical therapeutic methods are included in complex treatment, which allow one to get rid of pathology in a matter of minutes. Modern medicine has a fairly wide variety of instruments for the removal of genital warts from men. The approach is purely individual. The advantage of using one method over the others is justified by the place of localization of neoplasms and their size.
Modern methods of cauterization:
- Genital warts in men, located in the anus and on the penis are effectively removed with the help of such medical equipment as a radiocircular knife. The essence of this method lies in the targeted evaporation of pathological neoplasms by the current of high-frequency radio waves. This method of removal is painless and bloodless, while if the procedure is done by an experienced physician, healthy tissues do not fall under the influence of a radio knife. Carrying out this procedure requires expensive medical equipment.
- Electrocoagulation - removal of pathological growths by electric current. In modern medicine, it is used relatively rarely (it is practiced only cauterization of warts in the area of the anus), as a rather painful method. The method is referred to as traumatic techniques, after which colloid scars remain. One of the cheapest procedures.
- Cryoprigation or cryodestruction. This method of treatment is used for a sufficiently large lesion, the area should occupy not less than three centimeters. The procedure is carried out under clinical conditions using liquid nitrogen. Due to the use of low temperatures, it becomes possible to remove condylomas. After the procedure, rough scars are not formed. This technique is absolutely painless and not expensive enough.
- Laser coagulation with a special laser knife, sending a laser beam, allows you to work only on the affected parts of the epidermis. This is an expensive, but non-contact and fairly effective method of removing genital warts from men. During the procedure, local anesthesia is used. The focus of the lesion should be more than three centimeters. When processing under the action of a laser beam, a small area of healthy tissue also enters.
- Chemical destruction is the treatment of genital warts with drugs, under the influence of which pathological tissues are destroyed. In this procedure, preparations such as condylline, interferon-2α, dichloroacetic acid, trichloroacetic acid, podophyllotoxin or imiquimod are used. This process is quite inexpensive, but safe and effective.
Do not listen to baboks or look for alternative methods to solve this disease on the Internet and engage in self-medication. The use of alternative means is unacceptable in this situation.
Better provide diagnosis, selection of methods of destruction and protocol of drug therapy to a highly qualified specialist: dermatologist, andrologist, proctologist, urologist or venereologist.
