Hello. Thanks for writing to us at healthcaremagic

Genital warts are caused by HPV (human papilloma virus). The virus is acquired sexually.

Treatment options are either surgical/ local ablation with electrocautery, radiofrequency cautery, CO 2 Laser Or cryotherapy.
Medical treatment options are topical 20% Podophylotoxin resin and 5% Imiquimod cream.

The doctor may choose to either remove them surgically if there are just a few countable lesions Or else may choose to treat them medically if there are numerous lesions Or use a combination of medical and surgical treatment options.

I would suggest that you take another appointment with your dermatologist regarding the most appropriate method of removal.

Because body's own immunity, specifically cell mediated immunity Or ThI immune response is required to fight against HPV/warts; therefore factors that enhance Th1 immune response would be beneficial in cases infected with genital warts.

Glutathione is one such agent that helps restore balance in an underactive Th1 immune response and therefore may prove to be good in fight against warts along with surgical and medical treatments that I have already mentioned.
