Penile Warts please help!!
Hi Doc i have a cluster of warts by my privates, not on my shaft but on the patch where my hair grows... anyway I had a doc check it out and had them use liquid Nitrogen to remove them, well they fell off and then a month later returned... This doc then refered me to a dermotologist whom gave me lesion injections for ova a month and i used wartec at the sametime to remove them, they fall off and then return agen.. not all but most..!! It has become a really costly exercise to seek more professional help, please assist.

these lesions doesnt cause much physical irritation, but is rather embarrasing when seen by a partner!!

please give me some guidance doc, I am based in cape town.

anybody you can perhaps refer me to.

thank you!!

Ok, your problem is recurring warts on the shaft of the penis recurring after treatment. Treatment may be inadequate. Liquid nitrogen treatment should be repeated every three to four weeks until the lesions are healed. Wartec works much better, perhaps only, for moist warts on the mucosa. I am not sure what the doctor injected. Warts on the genitals in adults are virtually always picked up sexually. The other common cause for recurrence of warts are reinfection. I am not sure what the case is with you. I assume you are 100% certain of the diagnosis.
