gential warts, need advice please!!!

hi i was diagnosed with genital warts about a year ago. i was given podofilox and i used it once but it was painful. i was supposed to continue with the treatments but didnt. Does podofilox usually do the trick? also i heard that a strong immune system can usually rid you of hpv in some people.well i still have just the two warts and it has never spread. can anyone tell me what treatment might be the best for me?is there any hope for normalcy again?

Warts don't usually last more than 2 years, they go away by themselves. The average time before they disappear is about 8 months so maybe if you just eat foods that are supposed to pump up your immune system, it might speed up the process for you. Good luck.

Some people's immune systems do seem to get rid of or suppress HPV. It's not really well understood, though, so it's not easiy to say whether a person is totally cleared or not.

If you only have a couple warts, the best treatment would be to see your doctor and have them frozen off. It will only take a couple minutes, it's not very painful, and everything is healed and back to normal quickly.

There's plenty of hope for normalcy--considering about 80% of adults have HPV at some point in their lives, you ARE the norm!
