i have what i think is gentile warts but i have never gone to a doctor to check it out is it true that there is no cure and what would be a good treatment?                             Ps I have had them since I was 13 or14 I can not remember and I have not been with anyone. I am now 19 and am trying to get rid of them. I want a family someday but I don't want to spred them. Plus I have isolated myself from girls I really like so I don't get too attached to them. Life has been tough now and I need your proffesional opinion. Thanks for your help.
