Cannot: Genital warts are due to infection with human papilloma virus (hpv), for which some treatments can reduce the lesions, but if you have them there is a risk that you have other sexually transmitted diseases, and also this virus has the potential to predispose you to cancer. You should see your doctor and not neglect these.

Genital warts: There is no single effective cure for removal of genital warts. A number of treatment options exist; however, no treatment is 100% effective in eliminating warts and preventing them from coming back in all patients. It also is not possible to eliminate infection with human papillomavirus once it has occurred. Genital warts may go away on their own in about 10%-20% of people over 3-5 months.
