Take the quiz

In general, water warts go away on their own.

How do you get water warts?

You can get water warts by direct skin-to-skin contact. Also, you can get it by sharing towels, baths, or clothing with an infected person.

How can you protect yourself against water warts?

1. Always use condoms.
Condoms only protect you from getting water warts if your partner has them on their genitals. They can’t protect you from getting them from regions not covered by a condom.

2. Cover areas affected by water warts.
If your partner is infected with water warts, cover affected skin with clothing or sterile dressing. This prevents you from getting them when you get into close contact with your partner.

3. Avoid touching blisters or bumps on your body.
Don’t touch, scratch or pick any blisters or bumps on your body. Get it checked out by your doctor, otherwise, you could unwittingly be spreading the virus to other areas of your body.

What are the signs of water warts?

Women and men begin to show signs of water warts within two to eight weeks after being infected with the virus.

The symptoms of water warts are the same in women and men. In general, you can get them on your genitals, anus, thighs, and torso area.

Symptoms of water warts:

  • Fluid-filled blisters/warts
  • Blisters/warts often appear in groups

How do you get tested for water warts?

Your doctor can tell whether you’ve got water warts by examining you. Sometimes this means also taking a tissue sample (biopsy) to make sure you’ve got water warts and not something else.

How do you get rid of water warts?

Once you’ve got these fluid-filled warts, you can spread the virus to other parts of your body and to other people.
Usually, your body is able to get rid of the skin infection on its own within six to 18 months. So before thinking about medically removing the warts, your doctor will recommend waiting to see if they go away on their own. In general, once the water warts are gone, so is your infection. However, if you come into contact with a person who has water warts, you can be re-infected with them again.

Water wart treatment options

To prevent water warts from spreading to other parts of your body and other people, you’ll be asked to keep your blisters covered with a watertight bandage or cloth.

You can also get your water warts removed by your doctor by:

  •     Freezing them off (Cryotherapy)
  •     Lasering them off
  •     Draining the fluid inside of the water warts by cutting or scrapping (Curettage)

Usually, your doctor will recommend waiting before removing warts, because the procedures can cause scarring.

Riddle ID

Did you learn something new?

Hi there, there is no trick that works for every man. The best thing to do is to ask. Nobody can except you to just know. Sex is about communication as much as it is about the act. And that means in order to have good, satisfying sex, you need to talk!
Valer, Reaching out to people that you are attracted to can be difficult because of the fear of being rejected. However, they are no different than how would approach a friend, family or other person. The initial hello and coming up with small talk is the same idea except the person is front of you is attractive. The best way to do this when you are nervous is to talk to people who share interest. Do they go to school with you? Are they working? Did you meet them at the movies? This way there is already a commonality between you an it gives you the first conversation topic. Find other people who like what you like and try to mingle from there. Otherwise, just be honest. Tell them who you are, why you approached the (they said something smart, they like the same team, you find them beautiful etc) and then build the conversation from there. Tell them about yourself, and ask questions about them. You are attracted to them and ideally as you learn more about them you will become interested in them. Everyone has nerves and the girls know that. They will be flattered that you even tried to reach out and talk.

I once gave a woman a group of flower petals as an act of sincerity when I did I was met with a strange look, as if I had given her half of what she expected. I believe that a gesture is better received when it is done this way, would you say it is a romantic gesture or received as a disappointment
Manuu, as with all sexual contact, if one partner has an STD, then any contact, whether oral, penile or vaginal, can lead to infection. So it's always best to use protection. That means condoms for men, and dental dams (or condoms cut to make a sheet) for women.

George, the length of the penis has little to do with a woman's satisfaction. What's much more important is to play lots and lots of attention to the clitoris, that's a woman's real hotspot. In terms of foods, check this article: http://lovematters.co.ke/news/aphrodisiacs-top-five-facts
