Genital warts: THere are various topical chemical agents used to treat genital warts; hydrogen peroxide is not one of them. Trichloroacetic acid is a commonly used treatment option, but should be used under the care of a physician. Genital warts have a fairly high recurrence rate after treatment, and it is very important that your treatment and post treatment course are monitored.
