Hi,

'Genital warts may disappear without treatment, but sometimes eventually develop a fleshy, small raised growth. There is no way to predict whether they will grow or disappear.

Depending on the size and location of the wart, and other factors, a doctor will offer one of several ways to treat them.

    * Imiquimod (Aldara) a topical immune response cream, applied to the affected area
    * A 20% podophyllin anti-mitotic solution, applied to the affected area and later washed off
    * A 0.5% podofilox solution, applied to the affected area but not to be washed off
    * A 5% 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) cream
    * Trichloroacetic acid (TCA)
    * Pulsed dye laser
    * Liquid nitrogen cryosurgery
    * Electric or laser cauterization
    * Condylox

Podophyllin and podofilox should not be used during pregnancy, as they are absorbed by the skin and could cause birth defects in the fetus. 5-fluorouracil cream should not be used while trying to become pregnant or if the person taking the medication could be pregnant.

Small warts can be removed by freezing (cryosurgery), burning (electrocautery), or laser treatment. Surgery is occasionally used to remove large warts that have not responded to other treatment.'
