Genital warts: It may take up to 14 days to see resolution of warts. Be sure to complete full course of treatment. Avoid sexual contact until resolved.

They don't: generally they require surgery or local treatment to get rid of them; they have a 40% shot of recurring. Furthermore, it is very very likely that the DNA of the virus causing them is dormant (but infectious!) even after the warts are gone ! Hope this helps !

Depends: If you don't seek any medical treatment, of which there are many options available, most people will clear the warts with their own immune system within 2 years. However, just because the wart is gone, this does not mean you have gotten rid of the virus that caused them. There are also many topical creams, gels, ointments, and injections. If those don't work, try freezing, surgical excision, laser, cautery.
