In brief: Not really

Self treatment with over-the-counter products like Compound W have never been carefully studied to know their effectiveness against genital warts.
Also, many apparent warts are actually other conditions; self diagnosis is not wise. Best to see a doctor then follow his or her professional advice about management.
