Genital Warts Treatment

While there is no 'cure' for the HPV virus there are several medicines that can be applied directly to genital warts, depending on where they are located. Some prescription treatments can be used at home, while other treatments must be applied by your healthcare provider. A small number of genital wart treatments can cause discomfort and some cannot be used during pregnancy.

Genital Warts can be removed by freezing, which is called cryotherapy. They may also be burned off, which is called electrocautery. Surgical or laser removal is also an option, as is interferon injection. Your healthcare professional will advise on the best course of treatment for you, which may include simply leaving the warts untreated.
