Frequently Asked Questions

Can HPV be cured?

No. There is no current cure for HPV. You are able to manage the symptoms of the virus depending on what type of HPV you have.

It is important that you do not panic if you have tested positive for HPV, and that you understand what a positive result means for you. Not everyone with low-risk HPV will develop genital warts, and not everyone with high-risk HPV will develop cancer.

It is possible that you may clear the virus naturally, especially those individuals who are generally young and healthy.

What happens if I have symptoms after finishing my treatment?

For low-risk HPV you may experience a recurrence of warts after finishing your treatment.

If you have used topical creams you may want to discuss other options with your local GP or health-care provider. You can also use hyfrecation as a treatment option for the immediate clearance of warts.

It is important to note that hyfrecation does not permanently remove warts as it is not able to treat the underlying cause (which is the HPV infection).

If warts recur after a few months following your hyfrecation procedure, it may be worth booking in for another set of treatment.
