Question: genital warts

 kodiack777 - Mon Jul 11, 2005 11:51 pm

I was treated back in 1982 with a liquid wart solution that killed the warts and kept them
away for 10 years. I was then treated in 1997 with a lazer which left a big hole that took
weeks to heal. The warts came back in months and now i am wanting to know if i can just buy the liquid solution and deal with them myself. The doctor that treated me the second time said that they don't use the liquid anymore. I think it was saliclyic acid.

There are more effective drugs now for genital warts which can be applied by the patient but must be prescribed by a physician. Your doctor must however confirm the diagnosis before prescribing, so show the lesions to him. Your treatment should be accompanied by screening for other sexually transmitted diseases.
