Dear doctor, I am 29 years old and was sexually very much active before. About 4 years ago, I was diagnosed with HPV as I got some genital warts here and there, with very small size in my genital areas. But I have not experienced any problems in having warts, like itching or pus. I read from somewhere that HPV infection will go away by its own in 2 years. I used to get abnormal paps before and they turned normal recently. Since it went normal, I thought that the infection is disappeared and I am freed from its worst effects and will be out of problem soon. With that in mind, I had sex with my girlfriend about 2 weeks ago. Now, another wart has appeared in the genital region itself showing that it is still there. So, I am really fed up with it and confused whether it will disappear or continue to harm me. Can I deal with the warts by using some medication? Or will it last for a lifetime? I fear to tell about this to others as I fear it is a sexual infection. Please help me to get this irritating situation cleared. Thanks for your time.
