I read that genital warts usually only appear in people with weak immune systems. Does that mean that I have a weak immune system because I usually do not get sick or does it vary from person to person?
I don't think it is a good indicator of the overall health of your immune system. Everybody responds differently to the virus and while a person with a weakened immune system would likely have a bad outbreak, a bad outbreak does not indicate a weak immune system.
Well I'm still going to take care of my immune system. I am eating healthier and going to work out more. I have bumps around my anus that I found three weeks ago that are not getting bigger or spreading, but I'm going to be using a gel that my doctor prescribed for me to get rid of the bumps. Hopefully I will be able to clear the virus quicker. Thanks for your advice, I have been feeling dirty for the last month thinking too much about the warts. I will try to take care of myself better and hopefully this will be the only breakout of warts.
