I was diagnosed with a small no. of genital warts recently (including at the entrance to my vagina) and am now starting Warticon. My question is, after using the cream, even if the warts disappear, the virus will still be in my system so how do you prevent the warts coming back? My partner and I have both been testing negative for months. After I have the treatment, if the warts disappear I want to start having sex without a condom again (I’m on birth control), as I only have one sexual partner, but I’m worried the warts could return repeatedly, is this likely? Also, I was surprised to develop warts as I had the vaccine which gives protection against strain 6 and 11 which cause warts?
Also, I have developed a lump near my anus which feels larger and more tense, like a hemarrhoid (I think it developed after a small fissure from going to the toilet), is this likely to be linked to the HPV and how should I deal with this? Should I apply the cream here too?
