About the disease
Genital warts, or warts, are manifestations of human papilloma virus infection.
Infection that is highly specific to the skin and the epithelial integument, and therefore all changes and manifestations in the disease that is localized to the epithelium.
There are several types of diseases that are caused by different types of HPV. Warts, which goes on it, provoked 6,8,11,16 and 18 types of the pathogen.

Recently, the frequency of the disease has increased dramatically, and interest due to the possibility of a virus to lead to malignancy of the process, i.e. the development of malignant tumors.
It is difficult to cure genital warts using mere drugs, but there are methods that will really help to get rid of them.
I advise you to study the book «the treatment of warts folk methods.» Leadership in the book good reputation as a reliable informative program to get rid of warts.
The author of this book himself long suffered from growths on the skin, used different drugs, all kinds of drugs, even tried to remove them surgically, but it was always a relapse of the disease with even greater force.
