I have genital warts caused by hpv so what I should do?and does touching my genital areas will transfer the warts to other parts of my body ?

No significant risk: Genital warts almost never are transmitted to other areas of the body. They also are not transmitted to other persons, such as your baby. The genital types of HPV don't easily infect other areas. To be as safe as possible, just use common sense hygiene, like washing your hands after using the toilet and before handling your baby, e.g. changing diapers. Otherwise don't worry about it. ...Read more

If my husband husband gave me genital HPV and I have genital warts ,now I have tonsillitis ...is there a chance of cancer?

Stop worrying: Everybody has a few strains of HPV. The kind that causes warts isn't the kind that usually causes cancer. And if you get to the dentist regularly, precancers are easy to spot long before they're troublesome. You're married. I hope it is as wonderful for you both as it should be. You're certain to swap viruses. Care for yourself & one another & there's no danger to life. Love is far more important. ...Read more

Does terrasil or wartrol really work to get rid of genital warts? I had no warts or any sign of HPV untill today when i felt a burning feeling when i was going to the restroom so i checked to see n I have genital warts.

Even : Even though over-the-counter wart treatments can be great for a wart on your finger or knee, when you have genital warts, you had better see a doctor for treatment. The over-the-counter medications were not developed for use in the genital area and can cause even worse burning and irritation. Give your doctor a call. Sometimes genital warts will resolve on their own, but it they are causing you discomfort, then your doctor can treat you appropriately. Good luck! ...Read more

I Have genital warts as well as anal warts outside and internally, i have HPV and have been for surgery 2 months back. can i die from this virus?

Unlikely: The strains that produce genital warts are not associated with cancer, but you could have picked up the cancer associated strains the same way. The strain you have the warts from is more of a nuisance than a threat.After the warts clear or are removed, the germ can stay in your genital skin and re-emerge as warts later. ...Read more
