The best way to get rid of this is to have it cauterized under anaesthetic. The quicker, the better - as it is contagious and can spread to the penis. It is difficult to treat yourself as the medication you can use on it is very irritating to normal skin - it must usually be applied by a doctor repeatedly, so getting it cauterized is faster and more effective. YOur GP or a surgeon can do this.
