I'm 22 female. Have suffered wit genital warts for 4yrs : (doc freezes external ones but there's 1 by my clitoris, how can I treat these internal ones?

Aldara (imiquimod) or laser: I would consult your doc for an eval to see which rx option is best for you at this time. It is difficult to tell without an examination.

Also, would consider hpv vaccines series if u have not done so. Good luck. ...Read more
