Re: we both have warts what can we do

I'd suggest you and your husband go to a doctor's appointment together and both of you get treatment. Of course you need to let them know that you and your husband both need appointments.

Good luck.

Re: we both have warts what can we do

I don't understand why your doctor said he wont treat you because you are sexually active with your husband. My understanding is that once you have HPV (like myself and my bf), you just have it for life and it can come and go. I don't think you can pass it back and forth. The warts appear when your immune system is not as strong as it needs to be so it shouldn't matter whether you are having sex with your husband, just try and keep up your immune system. I thought the concern with being sexually active was passing it on to uninfected people... That's my understanding anyway...

Re: we both have warts what can we do

Thank you! Thats what I told my doctor, but he knows best! I guess! Well, im going back for another appt. and demanding treatment. All im asking for is a cream or something of that sort! I just found out that I need to make my immune system stronger about 2 weeks ago! I didnt realize that it was soo weak! I hope this next doctor visit is worth my time!

If your doctor refuses to treat you, I'd strongly suggest that you find a new doctor.

I agree with Pickle Eyes (love the name by the way). If your doctor even seems hesitant to treat you, I suggest you find a new doctor.
