Are you female, & 50 yrs old? If so, hormonal changes can cause irritation of the vulvar tissue. Take a look at your personal care products/body wash/laundry detergent/lube, etc. & try unscented, gentle products. Using a personal moisturizer daily while the area is healing might help, too.View Thread
It's true that one can clear the virus. But also note, that while you have it, condoms are not enough to protect your partner. The virus can be found all around, not just on the penis. Scrotum, etc. HPV is the fastest growing cause of head & neck cancer & anal cancer in younger people. (Used to be seen in older men who drank heavily.) So, it is serious, & I commend the original poster for being concerned about his future partner's health. Good advice about asking her to be vaccinated. That may be all you need to do. Good luck to you.View Thread
