Yes if treated: see an on-gyn to,have these burns off. Laser treatments can eradicate the wart forever. Careful exam will be needed, and if your mate is infected, you can re contaminate the area.

Often go away: Often go away without treatment. Various treatments, none perfect. We can destroy the warts but not the virus, so they may return after any treatment. Imiquimod cream applied at home is standard prescription. Often several treatments are combined. The wart vaccine prevents infection by 4 (of many) HPV but has no effect on an established infection.
