Response from Men's Sexual Health:

Thank you for getting in contact. Genital warts are caused by the HPV virus, once acquired you will have the virus for life, and genital warts once treated could appear again, so it is best to treat them as soon as possible, however they do not pose a serious threat to health and are usually painless. They can appear on the male and female genitals and anal area and are small fleshy growths and they are the second most common STI after chlamydia. However some strains of the HPV virus can cause cervical cancer in woman so to prevent passing it on, ensure you wear a condom during sexual activity and get them treated before you plan on having sex again to reduce passing on the infection. You need to book in at your nearest sexual health clinic or GUM clinic, where there is usually two options, a cream or freezing them off. You can not use over the counter wart cream to remove them, these are a different strain than the types that appear on hands. Please be aware it can take many months till they can be completely removed, but this will all be explained by the clinician you visit. If you live in Swindon and would like help making a appointment please get in touch, or would like further advice
