Removal of Genital Warts
Genital Warts can be physically removed by a skilled clinician
According to the Association of Reprodictive Health Professionals, "Even left untreated, most HPV lesions would eventually disappear due to an immune response". This can be a long process however as spontaneous clearance can take months or never occur at all in some. The option to remove genital warts to get rid of the symptoms of HPV can be much more appealing. Here are some of the methods which are used by Doctors today to treat genital warts.
Cryotherapy (freezing) - warts are sprayed with liquid nitrogen (sounds worse than it is) after a few days warts scab over and fall off
Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) - an acidic solution is applied to destroy the skin at the site of the wart. May require more than one office visit
Alpha Interferon - an antiviral drug which can be injected at the site of the wart.
Prescription Genital Warts Treatments
Aldara - Immune Response Modifier
ALDARA™ (imiquimod) Cream, 5% Is The Newest Way To Treat External Genital Warts. ALDARA is a patient-applied immune response modifier that helps the body fight the virus instead of just getting rid of the warts. ALDARA cream actually treats warts from the inside out and can be used in the privacy of your own home. Ask your doctor about ALDARA.
