I've only had my first breakout and I was given condylox gel.  It works like magic...except it burns if you aren't careful with it.  I also use tea tree oil soap, you can find it at a healthfood store.  I have also heard that you in order for the warts (not the virus) to go away you need to keep your immune system up so eat lots of fruits and vegetables and take vitamin c. I'm not sure if it works but I use it every day just in case! Keep praying! Good luck.

Too bad Jesus isn't latex.  Would've saved us all a lot of troubles.  Other than faith, you can go to your regular doctor or to a dermatologist and have them removed via several methods.  You can have them electro-cauterized which is said by some to be the most effective.  You can have them liquid nitrogened.  You can put some cream/gel on there called Aldara or something like that which is supposed to be pretty thorough.  There is also this condylox gel and perhaps more ways as well but that's the major ones.  After you receive treatment, you can ask for an application of podophyllin which is used to disrupt unseen hpv in topical skin cells which is where the virus resides.  

You must remember, or know, that treating your genital warts won't mean they are gone forever. It could mean that, many people have one outbreak and then that is it.  Other people have multiple outbreaks and statistically speaking genital warts can reoccur for up to two years before your immune system suppresses it and you are no longer contagious.  If you have no warts visible, you still may be contagious or you might not which is the rub with HPV, you just don't really know.  You are def contagious with active warts present.  The general rule is that if you go 3-6 months after your treatment with no new visible warts, then you can safely consider that your immune system has done its job and you won't trasmit the virus to other lovers.  Until then, you should consider yourself in the danger zone still.  

Keep your immune system healthy.  Don't drink much except for at communion I guess.  Drink tons of water, and I mean tons. You'll be surprised how much your body will hold and it needs it all to function at optimal efficiency.  Eat lots of fruits and veggies and take a multi-vitamin, get plenty of sleep and all that good stuff.  Exercise helps stimulate it too.

Aldara is $40 with my insurance, the generic is $10...I think without insurance it is over $200 but not sure. I did acid treatment once a week for 4 weeks and that was my $25 co pay each time. I don't know the costs of any of the other treatments and all insurance is different. So far HPV has cost me $200, but if I didn't have insurance it would have been a lot more.

I don't know any natural treatment. I am not drinking, don't smoke, I eat very healthy and take vit's. Google diet for immune system and warts. I know A and E are good for warts, C, multi and fish oil are good for immune. Green tea is good for cell but I can't drink it because of thyroid issues but white tea is ok.

A natural vit store is a great place to find out ways to treat warts/immune system. They often have books, a computer to find info and sales people who have loads of info in their heads.

Aldara sucks!
The best treatment is cryotherapy...Trust me...
