I am a 29 year old male and I do not have health insurance

This answer was rated:

I am a 29 year old male and I do not have health insurance or a ton of money. I believe I have genital warts. What are my options to remove them, and if I have to see a docter, what kind? An estimated cost for treatment? Thanks
Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing Internal Medicine Physician. Excellent service is my goal.

Thanks for this question

You have a few options

1)acid application (probably the cheapest)

2)cryo (liquid nitrogen freezing)

3)surgical removal

I would probably see a dermatologist and have them apply acid therapy to them.

this will be the cheapest. Probably 500 dollars total.

I hope this helps. If you have more questions, just reply. :)

I know they have the freezing kit they sell at the store for warts. Is that something I could buy and do it myself?

No, I wouldn't recommend that.

it is used for plantar and extremity warts.

Plus, it is not very effective.

It won't treat genital warts effectively
