Medicines for papillomas and warts in tablets

Papillomas and warts are currently the scourge of humanity - more than a quarter of the world's population has several types of such neoplasms on the skin, mucous membranes or other organs. And infection with the human papillomavirus (HPV) generally reaches more than 70% of all people on Earth - that is why it is so important to fight the virus, and not its consequences in the form of papillomas or warts. Local and cosmetic products and methods will be ineffective in this matter; to fight the virus, more serious drugs are needed that affect the whole body - such as tablets for warts.

Preparations for the treatment of papillomas and warts on the body

Classification of funds

At the moment, it is impossible to isolate a drug that would specifically and directly affect the activity of the papillomavirus in the human body; most anti-HPV drugs have a broad non-specific effect. However, with proper use and choosing the right combination of drugs, such drugs will help eliminate papillomas in the body and cope with other consequences of the infection.

The latter is especially important for women, because some strains of HPV are responsible for the development of cervical erosion and subsequent cancer. That is why the treatment of human papillomavirus infection is very often carried out not only for cosmetic purposes, but also to prevent serious and fatal consequences in the future.

Many people neglect pills for the treatment of papillomas or warts, seeking only to eliminate the tumor in the body that bothers them. This is a fundamentally wrong position; in this case, the virus remains in the body - which means that the recurrence of the wart is almost guaranteed and will require its new removal.

Treatment of human papillomavirus infection, according to the generally accepted opinion of experts, should be comprehensive, that is, include the use of several drugs and techniques. Only a specialist can develop and prescribe the necessary regimen and appropriate therapy; self-medication may not bring the desired results and may even cause harm. Such complex therapy may include the following groups of drugs:

  1. Antiviral drugs for HPV- these are medications that have the ability to inhibit the reproduction of the virus in the human body, stimulate the destruction of already infected cells and prevent the infection of new ones. Serious treatment of papillomas and warts must necessarily include this group of drugs, which can be used both topically and in the form of tablets and capsules.
  2. Immunostimulants– a group of drugs that can activate the immune system in case of its weakening (after a debilitating disease, stress, poor nutrition). In the matter of eliminating HPV, the use of such drugs is quite important, since in the vast majority of cases the activation of the virus occurs precisely when the immune system declines.
  3. Immunomodulators- a group of drugs similar to the previous one, which does not stimulate the immune system, but only normalizes its functioning, which is often enough for a small and temporary weakening. This drug creates a favorable background for the action of other anti-HPV drugs. The treatment of papillomas and warts very often includes such means.
  4. Complexes of vitamins and minerals- this group of substances helps only indirectly in the fight against the human papillomavirus, however, most experts consider their inclusion in the complex treatment strictly necessary. Firstly, providing the human body with vitamins and trace elements activates the immune system and other protective mechanisms, and secondly, such drugs make it easier to tolerate side effects from other anti-HPV drugs.

Each of the listed drug groups includes dozens of drugs, but only some of them, the most effective against this pathogen, are used to eliminate the human papillomavirus.

Antiviral agents

As is known, after infecting the organism, HPV penetrates the cells (epidermis, oral mucosa, genital organs in women), where at an appropriate moment it stimulates division. Together with the genetic material of the cell, the genome of the virus is duplicated many times, which is why the formation of papillomas or warts is so useful for the pathogen. However, there is a drug that can slow down its reproduction and activity in the cell - all drugs of this group belong to antiviral agents:

  1. An antiviral drug with a strong immunostimulating effect. This fact has become the reason that almost any treatment for HPV infection cannot be done without this drug - roughly, by drinking one tablet you can take two drugs at once. Treatment of human papillomavirus infection in women using this drug is very popular, especially in the presence of oncogenic strains of the virus. You should take it 2 tablets a day for 2-4 weeks, after which you should take a break for at least a month.
  2. An active antiviral drug with a pronounced immunomodulatory effect (unlike the previous drug, which has a stimulating effect on the immune system). Available in the form of tablets and capsules, it is often recommended by specialists for the treatment of various viral diseases - from flu to herpes. In order for treatment with the drug to be effective, it is better to take a double dose of the drug (8 tablets) on the first day of the course, then take 4 tablets a day for 5-7 days.

Many experts note that the use of antiviral drugs alone to eliminate the human papillomavirus from the body is not enough. It is very important to stimulate the immune system and normalize the functioning of the body's defenses - in this case, the chances of completely defeating HPV increase significantly.

Immunostimulating and immunomodulating drugs

After infection, the reproduction and spread of the virus is prevented by the human immune system, but HPV has the ability to "hide" inside the cells and remains dormant there for years. And as soon as the immune system begins to weaken due to some factors, it is then that the pathogen becomes active and leads to the development of neoplasms - papilloma, warts, erosion in women. If the doctor determines that the cause of the development of such formations is a decrease in the activity of the immune system, and it is still at a low level, he can prescribe pills with an immunostimulating effect.

According to medical terminology, the line between stimulators and modulators of the immune system is quite clear - some activate the immune system, others only improve and normalize its functioning. But in reality, it is very difficult to say clearly which drug is a pure stimulant and which is an immunomodulator. Therefore, some experts combine these drugs in a group of drugs that improve the functioning of the immune system:

  1. An immunostimulating drug whose active substances are components of ribosomes (special intracellular bodies). The drug does not specifically activate the immune system, it increases the activity of lymphocytes, macrophages, natural killer cells and other cells of the central connection of the immune system. Thanks to this, the body starts to fight against bacteria and viruses and antitumor immunity is stimulated. You should take the medication as prescribed by your doctor - usually 0. 75 mg (3 or 1 tablet) a day for 3 weeks.
  2. An immunostimulant based on the components of the cell wall of some types of bacteria. It has very low toxicity, and therefore a small number of side effects. Increases the body's resistance to bacteria, fungi and viruses, including human papillomaviruses. You should take 2 tablets under the tongue once a day for 10 days.
  3. Immunomodulators of natural origin, based on Echinacea purpurea, whose immunostimulating properties have been known for a long time. The tablets of one product contain 0. 2 grams of dry extract of the herb Echinacea, while the other contains 0. 8 grams of simply dried and crushed herbs. Therefore, the first should be used 1 tablet 3 times a day for a week, and the second should be used 1 tablet 4 times a day for 2-8 weeks.

Immunostimulants and other drugs that affect the immune system rarely lead to the elimination of warts or papillomas when these drugs are used alone. Most often they are used to prevent relapses after the removal of tumors from the body or as part of complex therapy.

Complexes of vitamins and minerals

Neither the fight against the virus nor the activation of the immune system can continue fully if the human body is not equipped with all the necessary vitamins and microelements. That is why, during the treatment of human papillomavirus infection, the vast majority of specialists prescribe special complexes.

The use of vitamins in itself can normalize the functioning of the body's defenses - very often it is the lack of nutrients that leads to a weakened immune system. In addition, some drugs for the treatment of papillomas and warts can cause side effects that will be mitigated by the beneficial effects of vitamins.
