I am pretty sure I have HPV and heard there was a pill that I can take that will keep it dormant, is that true? I also have a small wart on the under side of my penis, I went to a doctor and he tried to freeze it off twice, it didnt work either time it just puffed up and stayed that way, does that mean it is deep in the bllod system. Can HPV be passed through the wart if I was sharing clothes with somebody? I want to do everthing I can to not pass this on to my partner, is that possible for us to have sex and not pass it on? I want to know everything I can do to help prevent this from getting any worse and any medications that I could take to help. Thanks!
Hi and welcome to the forum! I am glad that I can help you.
You want to know a little bit more about HPV genital infections.
HPV (human papiloma virus) causes warts on the skin or in the genital area. If warts reappear after treatment it means that the wart wasn't completely removed or the scar was reinfected. Reappearance of warts doesn't mean that the virus is present in the blood. Certain types of HPV may cause cancer on the cervix of the uterus in women. The HPV is transmitted by direct contact of warts with damaged skin. There is a period of time between the infection and the clinical presentation of the same infection as a wart. Genital warts are transmitted by unprotected sexual intercourse or, rarely, by sharing clothes.
Given the data that you described, you experience genital warts. If you are not allergic to pollen, you may consider applying solutions that contain propolis on the infected skin in treatment of warts. These solutions can be applied in any area and are successful when the warts are smaller or are present in smaller numbers. The treatment may be longer depending on the number and the size of the warts.
