Hi. Does inner anal warts can clear in the 2 yrs lapse as genital warts? I'd changed my lifestyle and I'm eating super healthy.

Diet isn't going to touch them, just as food choice isn't a significant factor in most illness. If you're sexually active, keep using barrier protection. And get with a physician who can remove those warts. You owe it to yourself. Best wishes. ...Read more

Also, would consider hpv vaccines series if u have not done so. Good luck. ...Read more
