In brief: Topical

Gential warts are caused by hpv or human papilloma virus.
Warts are benign but can be annoying. They can be surgically removed or treated with topical chemicals. Even if warts are treated, the virus never goes away. The real concern is if high risk hpv is present or not, which can present risk for cervical or other genital cancers.

In brief: Local

The treatment for genital warts is prevention (hpv vaccine) or removal once you have them. Usually done by Podophyllin resin applied to the wart.
See http://www.Webmd.Com/sexual-conditions/hpv-genital-warts/podophyllin-resin-or-podofilox-for-genital-warts-human-papillomavirus. Genital warts on an infant or young child is a sure sign of sexual abuse and should be dealt with immediately.

occasionally, warts are seen in young children or seniors or nuns and there MAY be some cases of nonsexual spread.
