I don know anything about it ! Genital warts which means condyloma acuminata or venereal warts  are caused by mainly a group of viruses called human papilloma viruses (HPV). There are many risk factors associated with it.

One study sponsored by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) reported that almost half of the all women with HPV had no visible symptoms. However, in many cases, small, hard spots (easily visible to the eye) can develop within three weeks to three months after exposure.

Most of them do not require any treatment and will subside on its own.

I am a 28 year old male and I believe I have hpv. I know I should go to the doctor and everything but it s also a very small area that I believe is a genital wart that you can barley see so I don t think they would remove it anyways. I know the wart can go away on its own or get bigger or stay the same and everything. My big question is can I eventually get the virus out of my system to not pass it on? I m getting different answers online some are saying 40% will get rid of it the first year then 80% by the second year and others are saying you can get rid of the warts but the virus will be with you forever and can be passed to partners forever. So which is it? I would like to do what ever I can to boost up my immune system to get it out as soon as possible so any suggestions ? I am in good health and good weight with no issues that I know of I work out 4 days a week for about an hour and a half each time and eat somewhat healthy so I think that s a good start I don t smoke but I use to and I use a vape now so is that bad for the immune system like smoking is? Any vitamins or anything I can do to help? Also I think I know who I got it from so if we keep sleeping together if one of us get it out of our system will we just give it back to each other or can you only get it once? I can t really find out any info on how that works.

My son had a bump on the ball of his foot that looked like a callous and it was hard to touch. I thought it was a plantar wart so I used wart remover on it. Last week it looked like there was something in it so I discontinued the wart treatment and today he was squeezing it with tweezers and it popped and brown pus and blood came out of it. I put a band aid and antibiotic ointment on it after I washed it out with peroxide. Anyone have any idea what this is?
