    hello,am sorry about this.The major problem of warts is the high recurrence rate.But be rest assured that with time ,your immune system will clear the virus causing it.your must avoid sexual intercourse or genital contact with females with warts.you can possibly infect an unaffected female as well by contact.There is no drug to kill it from inside.most treatment is topical that is applied on the skin or removing the warts

    hello,that injection was given to prevent pain while removing the warts.its not that bad.but fear could have made you feel this way.the topical treatment includes the application of podophylin.It has to be by a health personnel preferably a doctor or nurse so that normal areas are protected with e.g petroleum jelly.I hope the location is accessible.can u feel it without deeping your finger inside where feaces comes out from?

    the location is accessible then.you may not be able to apply it yourself.you can tell that your doctor friend to help in applying it.its not a single session.The usual schedule is twice a day for 3 days, followed by 4 days without any lotion. You repeat this schedule for up to 4 weeks.You wash the resin off in 1 to 4 hours after to reduce side effects.Once you are used to how he does it,then you can try applying it yourself at home.

    hello,yes you got the explanation perfectly.remember the application is twice a day.immunace is OK,but I have seen people complain of side effects over time.Studies have show that Taking doses above 400 mcg can increase the risk of developing selenium toxicity (selenium is present in immunace). Taking lower doses long-term can increase the risk of developing diabetes . High doses of selenium can cause significant side effects including nausea , vomiting , nail changes, loss of energy, and irritability .why not eat healthy,avoid smoking and alcohol exercise,eat plenty of fruits and boost your immunity naturally. in the absence of diseases such as HIV,your immune system should be boosted.Have you had HIV screening before?you can have it done after counselling.its voluntary but advised.
