Genital Wart Medicine
Genital wart medicine is available both from a doctor in a prescription strength, and in the
form of over-the-counter products. Either of these can be effective, and for many sufferers, the easy availability
of commercial products, and the fact that they can be used discreetly in the home, without a potentially
embarrassing visit to the doctor's office, makes these the first choice.
The genital wart medicine options available to the doctor are obviously much greater than those on sale over the
counter. Some of the options available to the doctor are:
Keratolytics; such as products based on urea or salicylic acid, used to soften and exfoliate
the skin. These have the drawback of sometimes causing irritation, or even burning of the skin. For the sensitive
genital areas, this is not a good thing!
Interferons; these are natural proteins produced by the immune system. The product used for
genital warts, Aldara, works to induce the production of these proteins. It is administered by injection directly
into the site, by a qualified technician.
HPV vaccine; this is a more controversial means of treatment, and it is usually given to young
girls from about 9 to 26-years-old, as a preventive measure for cervical cancer and HPV - the human papilloma virus
that causes genital warts. The vaccine, Gardasil®, is given in three shots over six-months. The vaccine is not yet
given to men, although it is possible that it will have beneficial effects. Studies on this are now in process.
But genital warts medicine doesn't only include prescription treatments. It also includes natural homeopathic
remedies, home remedies, and over-the-counter (OTC)products.
Many people don't feel comfortable about going to their doctor for a full genital examination, with regular
repeat visits for the administration of treatment. For these sufferers the alternative genital warts medicine
treatment, and over-the-counter products are the preferred route.
Some of the most popular OTC products are the topical creams, but they can be messy to use and some of them,
intended for use on the more general plantar warts, can be too strong for use in the genital area. There are also
dozens of home remedies suggested, some of them work and others don't. The products used are numerous, and include
onions, raw potatoes, banana skins, apple cider vinegar, green tea, olive oil, and...duct tape! In fact, certainly
for non-genital warts and for skin tags and moles, some of these methods can be very effective. You can read more
about these at Chris Gibson's wart and mole removal website.
Ultimately, our preference for a genital wart remover is the safe and reliable homeopathic treatment offered by
Wartrol. It is probably the most popular product on the market, regarded as effective by
over 92% of the people who use it. It is manufactured solely from natural ingredients and is registered with the
FDA for the effective removal of genital warts. You can read more about it here: Genital Wart Medicine.
