Another symptom of genital warts is an overall moisture in the area of the genitals. This warning sign can become worse when the area remains wet. Therefore, a patient suffering from genital warts may want to use a gentle powder to keep the area dry. Try to avoid medicated powders, unless you are following a doctor's orders. Medicated powders could cause the area to become more inflamed, which can be very painful. Also try to only wear cotton underwear, as that this material helps to soak up moisture better than other materials.
