Can you use Compound W on genital warts?

Patient: Can you use Compound W on genital warts?

 

 

Doctor: It is not recommended to use compound W.  The product does not usually reach a low enough temperature to freeze the wart ts and if treated incorrectly, you risk spreading – instead of killing – the virus.If you visit a physician, they will use liquid nitrogen or another form of cryotherapy. Often more than one visit is required to fully eradicate genital warts and treatments should be spaced out 1 week apart.
