Straight male with hpv? Solutions?

I'm a 26 year old straight male with what seems to be hpv? I discovered one wart on my penis 3 years ago (still there) and about a year ago started discovering that warts were forming in my anus which cause extreme itching and bleeding when wiping(stil there and still multiplying). I have never had any form of anal sex and have had less than 5 sexual partners. Does this sound like hpv? I've been on a strict vitamin regimen to try to clear these warts without surgery. When will they clear? Any help is appreciated

The questions you're asking should really be dealt with by a medical professional. They can diagnose whether or not what you're describing is definitely caused by HPV, and what treatment options are available to you better than anyone on a message board can. Best of luck.

Roisindubh is right, you need a doctor to diagnose you properly.

That being said, there are things that you can do in the meantime to improve the outcome of any treatment.
Boosting your immune system will help your body fight infection, whatever the cause of the infection may be (HPV, etc.). The best way of doing that is diet and lifestyle:

1. Increase your daily intake of fruits and vegetables to 8-10 servings (1 serving = 1/2 cup).
2. Cut out all the "whites" from your diet: white bread, white flour, white pasta, white rice... SUGAR. This also includes all refined junk foods. Opt for whole grain varieties instead.
3. Make sure you are eating enough protein everyday. Opt for chicken, turkey, fish, legumes and beans, and try and avoid red meat.
4. Exercise - 30 minutes of mild-moderate exercise everyday will help boost your immune system.
5. Supplements: you mentioned that you're on a strict vitamin regimen, but are you taking the right things? I take a good quality probiotic, vitamin C and D, and a product called Papillex (a natural supplement - it's really great) daily, and its worked wonders!

Hope this helps Best of luck!
