Question: Genital wart treatments - Tetrasil, Viranol, other?

 davejoe75 - Thu Aug 28, 2008 9:06 am

Hello, I found a small wart on mid-section of my penis. It's definitely a wart as I had a few 6 yrs ago and recognize it. I've looked online for treatments and found Tetrasil and Viranol as the most popular. However, the online testimonials seem biased or contrived at best. Have you experience with either of these? Each has a money back guarantee, so the risk is minimal. However, I'd like to double check with an expert.

What other OTC genital wart treatments do you recommend? I'd like to nip this in the bud as it just surfaced a few weeks ago. Let me know. Thanks.

User avatar Hello Davejoe75,

I am unfamiliar with either of these products. I generally treat warts by freezing them with liquid nitrogen. I would recommend you see a physician for treatment of this. Freezing often can be a one dose cure (although occasionally it requires more treatments).

Best wishes.
