Internal warts are usually removed with laser surgery, excision with anesthesia, or cryotherapy (frozen off). You cannot use Aldara on the internal ones. I do not believe that they are painful, either internally or externally but I am not sure. It is recommeded they are removed before they cause complications or become larger.
