Basics: This cream has been used to treat genital warts & is most effective if used early in the course. HPV warts , whether removed by freezing, laser, chemicals, or naturally by the immune system have the potential for return in the future. They seldom do after the primary infection is cleared by the immune system (1-3 yrs).
