I have genital warts and have been prescribed warticon solution. I was wondering if this is the best treatment? And will they go away forever?
Hello, I would like to know the best treatment for genital warts and the percentage of recurrence with that treatment?
Several options: No treatment for warts is 100% effective all the time. The most reliable is surgical removal or cautery, but usually not practical or necessary. ~70% get good responses with podofilox, sinechatechins, imiquimod, or cryotherapy (freezing). If first Rx doesn't work within 4 weeks, switch to another. With all these, 10-20% have recurrence within a few weeks, but re-treatment usally works well. ...Read more

How can I ease the pain and swelling from genital herpes? I've been on several antibiotics but still having frequent reoccurrences, worse than before
See answer: Antivirals, not antibiotics, are used for treating herpes infections. If you are having frequent episodes of symptomatic, bothersome genital herpes (>2 a year), you should consider daily suppressive therapy (acyclovir, valacyclovir, or famciclovir) which has been shown to reduce outbreaks by 80-85%. Usually, stay on for 9 months to 2 years, and then stop and convert back to episodic treatment. ...Read more
I am experiencing genital sores, swelling, pain and itching. I don't think it's herpes or a yeast infection though.
Prob herpes or yeast: Herpes and yeast are by far the most common causes of such a problem. If redness and swelling of labia plus small sores (like cracks) in the sore area, yeast is likely.

Get expert care e.g. NHS GUM clinic, ASAP for accurate diagnosis & Rx if herpes. ...Read more

Reading conflicting info online - can genital herpes (HSV-2) of the groin cause lymph node swelling in the neck along with the groin?
That's news to me: Since essentially all young adults have a few swollen lymph nodes in the neck, and it's healthy (they're your friends), it would be impossible to investigate this (frankly silly-sounding) claim. If the nodes in your neck flare when your genital herpes lesions do, maybe there's a connection. No big deal.
