What are genital warts?
Genital warts are soft outgrowths that appear on the genitals. These are caused by HPV (human papillomavirus). If you have genital warts then remember that you aren’t the only one suffering from these.
They are very common and millions of people are diagnosed each year and still, there are some who are excluded as they aren’t diagnosed yet.
Maintaining good genital hygiene is very important to managing HPV. You can do this by regularly cleaning in the shower, staying well hydrated to assist your liver cleanse, and using the correct type of sex toys. Some toys made of softer materials such as rubber and plastic have porous surfaces and can absorb harmful bacteria deeper into the material, so metal or silicone is a good choice if you suffer from HPV. You could find some of those here.
It is absolutely necessary for you to visit a physician to get a proper treatment of genital warts. A major process can be of liver cleanse. But there are several ways through which you can get rid of these warts at home. Let’s have a look!
