FYI--I am in the medical field.I am all for scientific or hollistic medicine, both are good.
I have been GW free for 16yrs.by no miracle, sorry. just one of the lucky few, never had visible warts, had 1 cryo for cervical dyspasia, been clear since. I am currently battling flat warts on my arms and face.first true outbreak/problem with warts.been reading through these posts and got concerned about a lack of knowledge in cleanliness.
1. bleach water---alcohol does not kill the hpv virus, alcohol only kills lipid enveloped viruses. clean everything with bleach.remember to wipe down the toilet seat before and after use.
2. showers only---not sure of the true mechanisms but baths do increase speading. I use a shallow strong bleach water mix on days i need to shave, then shower.
3. shower daily with a salicyclic acne cleanser, psorisis shampoos are little more bang for your buck. this will help you to shed the most of your skin cells in the shower, you have to lather up and stay covered for a couple minutes before rinsing.
4. whatever treatment method you choose, both partners must be thoroughly checked and treated at the same time, also no skin contact with infected sites until both are cleared and skin is completely healed from treatment. condoms are not protective of hpv. strict abstinence until both persons are clear.
Sounds like most people are pretty on top of some effective treatments. Don't waste your good fortune, be CLEAN and prevent spreading.
