Condyloma refers to a cutaneous disease that generally affects the genitals. Classified among sexual transmitted diseases, this pathology is caused by some sub-types of human papillomavirus (HPV). Diagnosed by the naked eye, a condyloma may require a biopsy in case of doubt concerning its nature. Besides, persons who are sexually active early on are more likely to contract the disease. A failing immune system also favours the appearance of a condyloma.
After the contamination and incubation periods, the condyloma manifests itself by the appearance of warts on the external genital organs. In men, these warts are mainly visible on the scrotum while in women they appear on the vulva. In some cases, outgrowth can appear around the vagina and cervix. In other cases, the anus and urethra may also be affected. At the same time, warts can develop in the oral region and may or may not cause itching, which proves to be very uncomfortable.
To treat the lesions, take 5 granules of Cinnabaris 5 CH three times a day, especially when the condyloma are bright red and start bleeding at the slightest touch. When the condyloma are located near the external body orifices, it is recommended to take 5 granules of Nitricum acidum 5 CH three times a day. In case of painful and itching warts, as well as gynaecological bleeding, the indicated remedy is Sabina 5 CH, of which 5 granules need to be taken three times a day. To complete these treatments, one can also take 5 granules of Thuya occidentalis 5 CH three times a day. Fluid retention associated to a condyloma requires a daily intake of Natrum sulfuricum 9 CH, Mercurius solubilis 15 CH or Mercurius corrosivus.
It is primordial to consult a doctor if the warts persist or worsen despite the administration of the homoeopathic remedies. Indeed, in women, a condyloma can lead to precancerous lesions when they are located near the cervix. Besides, risky and unprotected sex will also require screening.
Good to know: In case of condyloma, homoeopathy is particularly appropriate since it can lead to an effective remission of the pathology without the need to resort to traumatic surgical care.
