What are the symptoms of oral HPV? Are the lesions/warts painful? Is there any over the counter treatment for them like creams/pills...etc? Help

There are no recommended OTC treatments. Happily, oral HPV is rarely dangerous. If you suspect oral warts, see your doctor. ...Read more

Can a gential wart rapidly change shape, size, color? Flattened out completely then raise again every few days as a reaction TO TCA acid treatment?

But the overall trend should be shrinking and drying up. If that doesn't seem to be happening after 2-3 applications, ask your doctor about alternative treatments. Most treatments work about 70% of the time, and change is often necessary. ...Read more
