Once a person has been infected there is no treatment that can completely eliminate genital warts. Usually the outbreaks of genital warts can become less frequent over time until the body naturally clears the virus. Then the warts will disappear on their own accord, but for some people the infection could linger. It is important to always treat genital warts. Even if a doctor gives a patient various treatments to clear them up, there is a possibility of the warts reappearing afterwards. Because genital warts are caused by a virus instead of a bacterium, antibiotics will not get rid of them.
Some of the common treatments of genital warts include:
Crycautery (cryotherapy): liquid nitrogen is used to freeze more persistent warts every 1-3 weeks for a short period
Electrocautery: an electrical current is used to heat a needle used to burn the wart cells and cauterizes the blood vessels; electrocautery is only used after other treatments have failed; a local anesthetic is performed to prevent any pain during surgery
Laser Treatments: an intense beam of light is used with this expensive method which is usually reserved for extensive and hard-to-treat warts
Podopfilox lotion or gel: this type of lotion or gel can be applied directly to the warts at home; a normal schedule for application is twice a day for 3 days, followed by 4 days without any lotion/gel; the cycle is repeated for a month (4 weeks) and is well-suited treatment for home
Podophyllin resin: brown liquid that removes genital warts by stopping cell growth; this liquid and podofilox lotion is painted on to the warts by a nurse or doctor and must be washed off about 4 hours later; to avoid damaging healthy tissue around the wart the drug must be applied by a medical professional several times to work effectively
Surgical excision: a minor surgery performed by the doctor to remove wart under local anesthetic
