I know that I have to use it for four weeks, 3 days on medicine and 4 days off. I just really hope that this medication works b/c these warts have become a serious source of stress in my life. Any suggestions on any non-prescription solutions for genital warts for a male?
Hello cba - First, I am so sorry your question didn't get an answer sooner. One option is cryotherapy, cba. Avoid touching them as they are infectious. After they have cleared up, you should always use a latex condom when considering intercourse. There is that chance that HPV could be sexually transmitted even while using a latex condom. Being aware of yourself is your best defense. Being confident and knowledgeable are your tools for keeping this under control. Check yourself at regular intervals. Do take notice should you have a recurrence but they "look" different. That is when you need to see a doctor - like a dermatologist, for instance. Keep the stress level down and be gentle with yourself. It happened. Take care of it like you would anything that required your personal attention. Handle yourself responsibly. I am sorry you are having to deal with this and how awkward this must be for you. But you are dealing with this responsibly and they will go away.
I wish you the very best and a more enjoyable, stress-free life.
