Which genital warts are treatable in men and women?

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.

No: Genital warts are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV) of which there are over 100 strains, though only several strains cause genital warts. Topical application of acid (usually bi- or trichloracetic) is commonly used to treat visible warts. Other than good hygiene with soap and water until the treated areas heal and use of a condom for protection, generally no other specific care is needed.

How to treat small genital warts next to opening of urethra and head of penis. They are very very small. Any home remidies?

See your physician.: There are many ways to deal with the bother caused by genital warts. However, if the warts are close to the opening of the urethra (or urethral meatus) I would be very careful to seek remedies only under the direct supervision of a doctor. Any damage or scarring of the meatus could lead to permanent narrowing of the opening and urinary difficulty.
