Trying to get rid of hpv warts on legs

Customer Question

Trying to get rid of hpv warts on legs

Hi--that's an unusual location for venereal warts--are you sure that's what they are and, if so, what have you tried so far?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
They are flat warts from hpv virus. Tried freezing them off, cortisone cream andduct tape.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.

OK First off, cortisone cream would have no effect whasoever. Freezing can work but it really needs to be done with liquid nitrogen by a dermatologist. Over the counter treatments really don't work either so prescription Condylox or Aldara would be the other options

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I will try that. Thanks
