Genital warts / HPV

I am 28 years old, a few weeks ago I started noticing little red bumps down there. I went back to the doctor and realized I had genital warts (a low-risk HPV type). Doctor sugested me to used acid treatments for a least 2 months. I read in some medical articles about possible side effects of this treatment. I would like to try some alternative treatments, some natural products, creams. Does anyone have some suggestions about natural remedies which are effective for this kind of a problem ?

    Do please listen to your doctor.  Any other "alternative" treatment should be in addition to what s/he prescribes.

    This is a mediacl forum after all!

      Thanks for your reply and advice. Unfortunately prescribed treatment is not working as well as I had hoped. Alternative treatment I meant to use as an addition to the prescribed treatment, so that may be able to contribute better efficiency.

    That sounds like a definate reason for a second opinion, acid treatments? when there are so many natural ways to go?

      Exactly, I don't want to apply this treatment anymore, of course I will consult my doctor first. As a next treatment he mentioned something about Cryotherapy, but before this treatment would like to be more informed about some herbal treatments, I read that certain herbs, such as lady’s mantle, centaury, Lemon balm etc. may help. Do you have more information about that ?

    Hi jenny864, people who have never had genital warts always speak the way they do. I had genital warts back in March, suffered with it for 4months! - In July of this year I tried the 'alternative' method & within a week the warts were gone OK, I've been wart free since July 2014, that almost 6months OK! So if you feel you want to try another way, please don't let others tell you no.

    For me the treatments by the doctors didn't help at all, they kept growing back. & even larger than before; it was devastating. - please message me if you are still wanting to try an alternative method. Have a great weekend!

    Hi,

    I was diagnosed with genital warts when I was 16 and it took me a while for them to go.

    Although I don't have any natural alternatives I would recommend you getting them frozen by your doctor as I found this to be the most effective way.
