Genital warts are flesh-colored or grey growths found in the genital area and anal region of men and women. They represent a highly contagious sexually transmitted disease caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). They can also grow in the mouth or throat of an individual after oral sex with an infected individual.

Gardasil is a vaccine that protects against HPV. HPV can be treated with a topical drug, by cryosurgery, laser treatment, or surgery. If the warts recur, doctors may inject Interferon directly into the warts. If left untreated, warts might lead to cervical cancer.

The following are some effective natural treatments for genital warts:

Genital herpes is a widespread STD. It includes two kinds, namely, HSV-1 and HSV-2. Most genital herpes infections are caused by HSV-2.

HSV-1, also called "Blister fever," usually develops in and around the mouth. It can be transmitted from person to person through kissing. It causes blisters or groups of small ulcers (open sores) on and around the genitals. It is incurable but symptoms can be minimized through the use of medication. For genital herpes treatment, home cure medications are available.
