I am a registered nurse in the emergency room and I too suffered from genital warts. At first I thought maybe it was just a skin tag but then soon after I started developing more. I was so embarrassed at first and being a healthcare professional it was hard for me to seek professional help. I first tried over the counter creams and nothing seemed to work. After about 2 years I decided to have them surgically removed but after about 6 months they came back. I used some natural creams and they have worked for me but remember there is no cure for the HVP virus.

I had the genital warts surgically removed but they grew back, after much pain and agony after the healing was happening but all grew back. Next they will be burnt off, no more operations, too much pain to no avail.

I would like to say that I have had genital herpes all my life and you can cut them off.

I had my genital warts surgically removed. I'd like to know if there is something I can drink to improve my immune system and would also like to give it to my child, who is 2 years old.
