Ask the Nurse

I am 59 years old. I noticed a wart growth almost at the entrance of my vagina. It has been there for more than five months. Recently I applied garlic overnight to the site and after two days it was gone. I am still worried. Do you think the wart is a sign of some disease? What do you recommend that I do to avoid a reoccurence?

Garlic does add flavor to food, but I have never heard of it curing vaginal woes! I would advise that you see your gynecologist or women’s health practioner for a full gynecology exam.

Sometimes sexually transmitted diseases (genital warts or herpes), infected hair follicles or sebaceous cysts can cause these findings. Best to get a full exam.

All My Best,
