What should you know about genital warts caused by HPV?
Anogenital warts typically develop approximately 2–3 months after HPV infection (almost all caused by types 6 or 11); however, not all persons infected with HPV types 6 and 11 develop genital warts. Anogenital warts should be assessed by a clinician and can be treated, although many warts (20–30%) regress spontaneously. Recurrence of anogenital warts within 3 months is common (approximately 30%), whether clearance occurs spontaneously or following treatment.

What is the most effective treatment against genital warts?
The most effective treatment (with the lowest recurrences) is called Photodynamic Therapy. Unfortunately this treatment is not available in the Western world. I mean: it is possible to get Photodynamic Therapy against i.e. ACNE on face, but it’s not possible to get it against genital warts. Why? I have no idea. Maybe it is a some kind of conspiracy? Anyway the fact is one: HPV virus hides in the skin, and it is possible to eradicate it during a few ALA-PDT treatments.
There were many clinical trials about Photodynamic therapy, but usually in China. You can check this PDF file:
What is the biggest problem with genital warts?
The biggest problem with genital warts is that they can come back, especially in the first months after their show up. All available methods (Cryotherapy, Podophyllotoxin, Aldara, Veregen…) have high recurrence rates.
What can you do to lower genital warts recurrence rate?
You can take medicinal mushrooms to boost your immune system (for example: Coriolus versicolor and Reishi had 88% clearance rate after 2 months, during one clinical trial).
You can try food supplements like Ellagic Acid and Annona Muricata extract. In one clinical trial EA+AM gave 74% HPV clearance rate after 6 months.
You can try use Panavir gel topically. Panavir is an antiviral medicine created in Russia. It works antiviral and immunostimulating. There are many russian clinical trials about its effectiveness.
You can try hypethermia (44-45 celsius degree) on your genitals, but it might be hard to get this treatment in any clinic.
You can combine removing warts with taking Inosine Pranobex (3g daily for 4 weeks).
If you have strong recurrences – you should check your glucose level in blood. If you have diabetes, then you should know that there is correlation between the strength of HPV/number of recurrences and diabetes.
So what can you do?
You can go to China and try to get Photodynamic Therapy (ALA-PDT) against genital warts. That’s the most expensive option.
You can try Cryotherapy or Podophyllotoxin, and be mentally prepared for recurrences.
You can try Cryotherapy or Podophyllotoxin, and 1 immune-booster (i.e. medicinal mushrooms, Ellagic acid + Annona Muricata extract)
You can try Cryotherapy or Podophyllotoxin, 1 immune-booster and – topically – Panavir gel. Panavir gel should be applied 2 times daily (5 days before the treatment, 10 days after the treatment).
Combine Cryotherapy or Podophyllotoxin with Inosine Pranobex: 3g daily (1g in the morning/afternoon/evening) for 4 weeks. If you do this, then the chances for recurences are as low as 6-7%.
What about ALDARA?
If you are a man, then it’s a total waste of time.
If you are a woman, then you can try it (it has 60% effectiveness in females).
What about ACV, Thuja, homeopathic medicines?
Forget about it. It’s your health. Don’t waste your time on methods without any clinical trials. You can check Google Scholar and search for clinical trials.
