Why can’t genital herpes and genital warts be cured?

Why is it that genital warts and genital herpes can’t be cured? I know they are both viral infections but chicken pox are also caused by a virus and that can be cured.

Well, they’re viral integrators. They actually invade your cells and change them (as in DNA). Chicken Pox can’t be cured. It only goes dormant. Shingles (herpes zoster) is the reemergence of Chicken Pox.

Scary stuff, but all too common. There are many public health sites that can break down the details for you.

the common cold is a virus and so is HIV !

they cant be cured (yet) but can be easily managed to reduce the impact on your life
