So Aldara didn't work, neither did many TCA treatments, and now I'm about to try podophyllotoxin solution. Any reviews? I struggled with depression/anxiety, and OCD the last two years and then this year I got diagnosed with HPV genital warts. It's really bringing back some depression. Please tell me this one has worked for y'all. I also hope if they do go away that they go away for good. It's hard to deal with so many things all at once. I went from trying to deal with myself to now dealing with warts. I don't want to go back down.

@lauralo1001 I had two cryotherapy in one week and was provided with Warticon. What was your process in using both treatments together? Also did your warts change colour? After my first cryotherapy they went dark. I'm not sure how they're supposed to look and if it's working.
Thank you :)

@Gofightcheer Just know that millions of others are going through the same thing (including myself.) I don't want to feel depression either and slip, so I tell myself that this is not life threatening, it's just like getting a verucca just down below and that this is very common in sexually active adults. Just keep doing your treatment, stay positive (harder said than done but you got this!) and live a healthy lifestyle.
Chances are it will clear eventually so focus on things you enjoy and try to put this at the back of your mind :) hope this helps

@star321 I have heard of instances where warts do change colour and fall off after cryo. In my instance, I was just left with a red mark where the wart used to be, that took weeks to fully heal up. I waited a few days to allow any sensitivity in my skin to heal, then put the warticon on the still present wart areas to speed up removal (and used it for smaller warts which cryotherapy missed) and this all seemed to aid the regression. I didn't suffer any adverse reactions from warticon though, so if your skin is still tender and the cream causes severe pain I wouldn't recommend following this regime! Definitely test it for yourself though :) Both cryo and warticon take a few applications to start seeing results usually, I'd deem you lucky if you got rid quickly! It's a stubborn virus but it's not unbeatable! Just takes a bit of patience, good luck!
