Genital warts can appear in many different locations in the “boxer shorts” area in both men and women. In men, they can develop “just under the foreskin, but can be anywhere on the penis, on the scrotum, in the groin or around the anus.” (1) In women, they can show up “around the opening of the vagina (vulva), but they may occur in the folds of skin alongside the vaginal opening, or between the vagina and the anus, and around the anal opening.” (1) Click to learn more about HPV symptoms.
Where do they show up most often?
The Archives of Dermatology says that in men, genital warts develop most often (51% of the time) on the shaft of the penis. The next most common area is around the anus (31% of the time). Finally, warts show up in even percentages on the head of the penis, inside the urethra, and under the foreskin (all about 10% of the time). (1) In women, genital warts develop most often around the opening of the vagina (66% of the time), inside the vagina (37% of the time), between the vagina and anus (29% of the time), around the anus (23% of the time), and finally on the cervix (8% of the time).

The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) recommends that Americans infected with HPV take Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR. The formula of these natural antiviral products was tested by Hanan Polansky and Edan Itzkovitz from the CBCD in two clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. The studies showed that the Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR formula is effective against the HPV and other viruses. The clinical studies were published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, the first, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs. Study authors wrote that, “individuals infected with the HPV … reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR.” (2) The study authors also wrote that “we observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms.” (2)
Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR are natural antiviral dietary supplements. Their formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinesis Extract, Quercetin, Cinnamomum Extract, and Licorice Extract. The first ingredient is a trace element, and the other four are plant extracts. Each ingredient and its dose were chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists at polyDNA, the company that invented and patented the formula, scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals, and identified the safest and most effective natural ingredients against latent viruses. To date, Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR are the only natural antiviral products on the market with published clinical studies that support their claims.
Some people carry HPV, but do not have any warts. In fact 15-40% of people under 40 are carriers of HPV. (1) However, anyone who carries the HPV virus may develop genital warts, or may develop cancer.
The CDC notes that “You can get HPV by having oral, vaginal, or anal sex with someone who has the virus. It is most commonly spread during vaginal or anal sex. HPV can be passed even when an infected person has no signs or symptoms. Anyone who is sexually active can get HPV, even if you have had sex with only one person. You also can develop symptoms years after you have sex with someone who is infected making it hard to know when you first became infected.” (3)
What standard medical procedures are available to treat genital warts and HPV?
“There are no drugs approved against the HPV. Current treatments include procedures, such as cryotherapy, conization, and the Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure (LEEP). These procedures use liquid nitrogen, a surgical knife (scalpel), a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser, or electrical current to remove the abnormal growths caused by the HPV. These growths include cells that harbor the active virus. The procedures do not target cells with the latent virus. Since they do not remove the latent virus, these procedures only produce a temporary remission.” (2) In contrast, Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR were designed to target the latent HPV.
Because standard medical procedures to remove genital warts will not prevent the HPV virus from forming genital warts in the future, some individuals may choose not to have treatment at all. However, the CBCD warns these individuals that they “may be more likely to pass the HPV infection on to someone else through sexual contact. This is possible even when using condoms correctly because they may not cover the affected area.” (4) Additionally, if an individual has been sick, or their immune system has been damaged for any reason, “The genital warts may grow larger in size or number and you may not clear the virus as quickly as someone with a healthy immune system. This may increase your risk of passing on the infection to someone else.” (4)
“The public should remember that even after removing the genital warts, the virus remains in their bodies, and therefore they need a remedy against the latent virus.” – Greg Bennett, CBCD
