I have been affected by genital warts(hpv)for a while. Beeing in Canada, dealing with the healthcare system can be a very frustrating experience, so I took the matter in my own hands and successfully treated the 5 warts I had.
Now first of all, if you think you have hpv you NEED to consult a doctor, he will treat your warts with cryosugery. During the procedure, look and learn the doctor's technique. Unfortunately cryosurgery often needs to be repeated a few times in order to get rid of the warts completely.
When I went back to the clinic for subsequent treatments, I waited for 3 hours to see the doctor only for him to tell me "well I'm sorry sir our clinic doesnt have the budget for liquid nitrogen anymore, so you'll have to go to a different clinic across town" needless to say I wasn't exactly happy so I went home and decided to do it myself.
Here's the secret: liquid nitrogen can be replaced with canned air. Turn the can upside down and slowly pull the trigger, liquid (difluoroethane) will come out of it.
Simply copy the doctor's technique to treat the warts.
This is obviously not for everyone as you could seriously hurt yourself trying this!! You need a high pain threshold and a lot of self control. If you are not 100% confident you can do it then by all means go to the doctor.
