User avatar Hello,Steroid cremes do not help in treatment of genital warts.Also you can not treat your self.But then your doctor may prescribe you medications which could be applied at home.Certain preperations like podopyllin strong has to be applied by the doctor.Podophyllin preperations are contra indicated in pregnancy.Codylox,or aldara may be recommeded to be applied at home, as a prescription.Aldara is only for external genital warts.Cryo could be another choice.You can not cure HPV but can get rid of the warts.Ok?
