In brief: Venereal warts
The latency or dormant period of viruses is extremely variable and subject to outside influences such as the host's well-being - in times of "stress when the host can't cope as well (when an individual's immune system is "stressed" or weakened) viruses may seem to "flare.
" viruses may remain "dormant" for years. That is why we need to remain healthy with a good diet, exercise and plenty of rest.
