A 24-year-old female asked:
If I keep healthy and don’t smoke, how likely is it that the small genital warts I have will not come back again after the first outbreak?

Genital warts: Genital warts sometimes recur, but usually not. There are no health habits or lifestyles that make a difference, as far as we know. Not smoking may be important -- keep it up! Stay generally healthy, exercise, sleep well -- these are good health habits and possibly might make wart recurrence less likely. But don't freak out if you can't maintain the program. Probably doeesn't make any difference.
