In brief: First step

This treatemnt can irradicate genital warts, but recurrence can be high.
Best to see your doctor for not only effective treatment, but proper follow up.

In brief: Genital warts

There is no single effective cure for removal of genital warts.
A number of treatment options exist; however, no treatment is 100% effective in eliminating warts and preventing them from coming back in all patients. It also is not possible to eliminate infection with human papillomavirus once it has occurred. Genital warts may go away on their own in about 10%-20% of people over 3-5 months.
