Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
Unfortunately, once you get HPV infection, it becomes a lifelong infection, and the warts keep coming infrequently.


The only option is to apply Aldara cream on it, or to get it removed like last time by your physician.


You can try Aldara and see the response and let me know.


Regards.
