Genital Wart Treatment
Genital warts are small warts that develop around the anus, vagina, penis and groin area after contact with the HPV virus that causes the warts. This is a sexually transmitted disease or STD that is transmitted strictly through sexual contact. There is no cure for genital warts, but many treatments are available.
It is thought that up to 30% of genital warts will actually go away on their own without treatment. This could be the case for a patient if there is no discomfort, and then treatment is not needed. If itching, burning or pain is causing any discomfort, treatment may be sought.
Imiquimod or Aldara
Aldara is a cream that boosts the immune systems capabilities of fighting the genital warts. While applying this cream twice a day for 3 days and then no cream for 4 days, you should avoid any sexual contact. This can weaken the protection that condoms and diaphragms offer, and will irritate a partners skin if contact is made.
Podophyllin or Podofilox
