A 42-year-old member asked:

Can genital warts keep returning or does it lay dormant after treatment?

Can return: It may return once or twice after treatment, but then usually goes dormant because the population of virus has been reduced and your own immune system suppresses it, but in immunocompromised patients it may keep recurring.
