Penile Warts Treatment
My derm says that repeated cryo for penile warts is + likely to cause scarring and sensation loss than imiquimod. True? He says imiquimod doesn't harm healthy tissue. It harms whatever it touches, no?

Cryo can cause scarring and does hurt a lot when applied. Plus with the cream you can do it on your own without having frequent returns to the doctors office for cryo. Try the cream first if that's what your doctor suggested! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have HPV and i found genital warts on my penis and I am taking therapy, after marriage my wife will absolutely get it?
Assume she will: But what's the real concern? Almost everyone has met at least one or two strains of HPV. If she complies with proper health care protocols, it's essentially no danger to life, and if she also develops warts (which is unlikely), they can be treated. Now, how about using barrier protection until you're married, so you won't pick up more HPV strains and the other nasty stuff you've gotten? Cheers. ...Read more
I never had anal sex but i got genital warts on my penis. Is it possible to get anal and scrotum warts as well? Does the interferon therapy effective?
They sure can...: You can use the liquid nitrogen, liquid nitrous oxide (this is what i like to use), topical acids, dermal scraping.

Cantharidin: Your doctor "paints" cantharidin on your wart and covers it with a bandage. This is generally painless. The cantharidin causes the skin under the wart to blister, lifting the wart off the skin. When the blister dries, the wart comes off with the blistered skin. You may feel some pain when the skin blisters. When you see your doctor again, he or she will remove the dead skin and may retreat. ...Read more
