Anal warts can be treated by using a topical treatment (a cream, lotion or chemical), usually applied by the patient. Some anal warts may need to be physically removed by a nurse or consultant.
Cryotherapy is a freezing treatment which is used to treat warts.
You would be recommended to have cryotherapy if you have warts on your feet and other treatments have not been successful.
During the procedure you may experience a moderate burning sensation.
After cryotherapy, in the two to four weeks your skin takes to heal, you may experience some skin irritation, blistering and pain where the warts were removed.
