Genital/Anal warts are often very concerning to people because of the physical appearance they produce. However it is important to note that we can treat the physical symptoms.

Electrosurgery:

Not to worry, this sounds scarier than it is. The process involves numbing the wart(s) first then using a small electrical current from a special surgical machine to gently remove the wart. The process is very quick and produces excellent results.

Cryotherapy:

Tried and trusted method of removal using a freezing spray. Safe and well tolerated but surrounding skin may also be affected and it can take many tries before the wart is removed (may take several weeks).

Topical Lotion:

A relatively new treatment involving a lotion that is applied to the wart itself. Very safe and pain free. Most warts can be treated in 1-2 sessions, about a week apart. Only the largest warts may require more.

Acid therapy:

Another tried and trusted method that can be done at home. Much like warts on the hands and feet, a small portion of acid gel is applied to the wart and left overnight. After a few weeks of treatment the wart should be removed. Downsides are that normal skin may be affected if applied to liberally.
