No one treatment is better than another. People react differently to each type of method used. Your doctor may try to use liquid nitrogen and freeze your warts. I do not recommend surgery. Your warts will resolve eventually on their own anyway, be patient.
I've been dealing with this for nearly a year now...tried the aldera (no improvement), Dr. removed w/acid procedure (some improvement), had laser surgery (worked well, but came back), I've had repeat trips to the Dr. for removal w/acid treatment...So far breakouts have been less severe (meaning # of warts) and the time in between breakouts is getting longer
With that said I would not recommend aldera or laser surgery...I had severe side effects with aldera & in my case it just didn't seem to work...laser surgery was only a temp. fix (warts came back) & it was extremely expensive (over $5,000.00)
Based on my experience I would recommend getting them removed as soon as you notice a breakout & keep that up...Just as with other virus' your body will eventually build up a tolerance/immunity & suppress the virus...It will still be with you, however from what I understand about it, it will be in a dormant phase in which you no longer have warts and chance of passing it is extremely low or not at all
