by having un protected sex Genital warts are mainly spread through sexual contact.

In rare cases both adults and children are infected indirectly, for instance through the use of an infected towel. Babies can also be infected during delivery. Genital warts are a sexually transmitted condition caused by the human papilloma virus . Genital warts can be flat with stalks, or cauliflower-like, and are most often seen on the genitals or the area around the rectum.

HPV can be divided into several sub-categories. Some types are more resistant to treatment than others, and some are associated with the early stages of cancer in the genitals. Laser Surgery: Usually reserved for very tough to treat and extensive warts, this method uses lasers—intense beams of light. The downside to this treatment is it is prohibitively expensive.

As mentioned, genital warts cannot really be totally removed, as the virus will always be there, potentially causing a recurrence. The best way to get rid of genital warts, therefore, is to prevent yourself from getting it in the first place.

If you can, abstain from sex as much as possible. Keep in mind that HPV—the virus that causes genital warts—is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States. As such, every time you engage in any sexual activity with anyone, you risk a 7% chance of HPV infection.
