Buy Genital Wart Cream at Boots UK Over the Counter for Self-Treatment at Home?

Genital warts patients have got a number of treatment options, that range from topical creams and gels to surgery.

While many people prefer genital warts treatment cream that can be discreetly used at home, you may be wondering if you can buy these topical ointments over the counter at popular UK stores like Boots.

The fact is, wart removal products that you see in such retailers are formulated solely for Non-genital warts (eg. verrucas on foot), but not for genital warts treatment.

For instance, for wart removers like Bazuka and Wart Stick that contain Salicylic Acid as active ingredients, their application instructions clearly indicate users should not apply such products on genital area.

So what are the recommended genital wart treatment creams for both men and women?

  • After about 6 to 10 hours after use, the affected area of the skin should be properly washed with soap and water.
