my doctor told me when i got hpv that the only way to remove the warts was an acidic solution to burn off the area around the wart as well because the virus infects skin cells in a wide area…they can also use a freezing method

Potassium Permanganate and Water solution works on blisters very well, but genital warts need some more aggressive treatment to mange them. such has :-

The underlying virus can not be completely removed and the genital warts may reappear even after treatment.


Podophyllotoxin solution and Podophyllotoxin cream: This treatments can be applied in a clinic or at home by the patient. A typical treatment course will last up to four weeks.

Podophyllin Solution: This treatments is usually administered by clinical staff. It must be washed off within four hours as it is toxic and can irritate the surrounding skin.

TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid): This is a caustic chemical applied to the warts by clinic staff.

Immune Response Modifiers: These enhance the immune system’s ability to fight the virus responsible for gential warts.

Cryotherapy: This involves freezing the warts with liquid nitrogen by clinical staff. This kills cells in the warts and some surrounding skin.

Cauterizing: This involves burning off the warts by clinical staff with an electrically heated probe, after numbing the area with a local anaesthetic.

Laser Treatment: This may be done under general or local anaesthetic at the clinic. This can be usefull for treating areas with a lot of warts. The heat of the laser kills the cells.

Surgery: Surgical removal of the warts may be done in hospital.
