There : There is not an over the counter remedy avaiable that is specific to genital warts. Genital warts need to be assessed by your health care provider. Then, he/she may recommend and precribe a medication that can be applied in the privacy of your own home. Most of the time, genital warts are removed using cryotherapy (freezing the wart so that growth stops). Please see your health care provider to determine the best solution.
