How Long It Takes To Heal After Fulguration Done On Genital Warts?

After having fulguration done to genital warts using electrocautery, how long will it be before sexual activity can be resumed and how long will it be before enough healing occurs to return to work, under the condition that the patient has HIV but the viral load is low (undetectable) and the CD4 count is high?

Hi,

I can understand your concern regarding to achieve normal activity including sexual activity after the treatment like electrofulguration of genital warts...with HIV positive status. I am really sorry to say to avoid sexual activity for few months due to high chances of relapse of warts... as the immunity is poor. Skin is likely to recover in few weeks with proper treatment after the procedure.

Hope this helps.
