Can you treat hpv genital warts with any over-the-counter treatments. the dr confirmed it was from hpv and attempted to freeze them off.

No: There is really nothing over the counter that will work. Genital warts are treated with freezing, laser removal, excision and prescription creams.
Dr. J. Lawrence Dohan

See GYN or dermatolo: It can be a frustrating experience requiring combinations of treatments and prescription cream at home. Without a prescription and attention from an experienced physician you are less likely to clear the warts. Forget about otc for hpv.
