My husband has HPV, and had genital warts for years that just got bigger and bigger. The doctors gave him medicine to apply directly to the affected areas, but it was painful and never really helped because he couldn't use it long enough to get rid of the warts. He went to the doctor one day with a normal day sinus and cold infection and the doctor gave him a shot of cortisone to help boost his immune system. A week later, after YEARS OF active HPV, every single legion he had was GONE.  In trying to research wether or not Cortisone clears up an active HPV outbreak, I came across your question. Just figured I'd share our experience with Cortisone and HPV.

 Apprently, it is a good thing. It helps boost your immune system and might possibly be a temporary fix for HPV outbreaks. I'm still researching.........
