Burning Off Warts
How do I remove dark scars on penis do to burning off warts. Had genital warts years ago, burned them off myself. How do I get rid of dark scars (please)!
Burn scars usually last a lifetime. The good news is that they lighten over time. There is a cream called Mederma that you can buy over the counter that may help lighten the scar. Read the instructions prior to buying to make sure this gel can be used on the genitals. Lastly please do not perform any more home medical procedures on yourself, this can be dangerous, and leave long lasting scars. There are other treatments for genital warts that would have resulted in no scars.
Good luck. ...Read more

Common: Genital warts are very common and are caused by HPV. Most people will come in contact with some form of HPV in their lives (not always with the strain that causes warts, however). Removing might be permanent for you, or they can come back. He can't 'give' HPV back to you, as once you come in contact your body doesn't get re-infected with same strain. Different strain, yes, but not same one. ...Read more

Don't give up! ...Read more

Doctor recommends burning (small) genital wart with acid. How is this safer than using Applecider vinegar at home? Can I get a second opinion please?
Acid?: There are a variety of topical agents that can be used for a genital wart. All the ones that physicians actually use are likely to work. Apple cider vinegar is promoted as curing everything. This alone should enable you to reach an obvious, correct conclusion. Having even one genital wart is a major personal liability. Ask whether a laser or cautery might not be your best move. ...Read more

Does terrasil or wartrol really work to get rid of genital warts? I had no warts or any sign of HPV untill today when I felt a burning feeling when I was going to the restroom so I checked to see n I have genital warts.
Even: Even though over-the-counter wart treatments can be great for a wart on your finger or knee, when you have genital warts, you had better see a doctor for treatment. The over-the-counter medications were not developed for use in the genital area and can cause even worse burning and irritation. Give your doctor a call. Sometimes genital warts will resolve on their own, but it they are causing you discomfort, then your doctor can treat you appropriately. Good luck! ...Read more
