What is Warticon for?
Please note: You should only buy Warticon online without prescription to treat external genital warts, as the medication is only licensed for that use.
Please note: Warticon should not be used to treat anal warts — Aldara Cream available from Medical Specialists® is licensed for this purpose.
Please note: Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before using this medicine if your warts cover an area larger than a 4cm2 area (approximately the size of a postage stamp). You may need to have this medicine applied by your doctor or nurse in a clinic.
Warticon is a very effective and popular treatment for the eradication of genital warts. It is often effective in as little as under 1 month. Warticon is available to buy online in either a cream or solution and contains Podophyllotoxin, the same active ingredient as Condyline Solution. When used correctly, both versions of Warticon should be equally effective.
How does Warticon work?
The active ingredient in Warticon is Podophyllotoxin. This is an antiviral to be applied directly to the warts. The medication works by penetrating the wart cells, preventing them from dividing and spreading. These cells are eventually killed off and replaced by healthy new skin cells, replacing the damaged skin.
Choosing Warticon Cream or Warticon Solution for Genital Warts
Warticon comes is a cream or solution and either treatment are very effective options for genital warts present on the external skin of the penis, vagina, or surrounding area of the groin. Warticon cannot be used for warts that appear around the anus and is not licensed for this use.
Warticon Solution is often recommended for men due to the nature and position of their genitals, meanwhile Warticon Cream is typically recommended for women. However different people have their own preferences wether they prefer a cream or solution based treatment. The two are similar in effectiveness with no major differences in cure rates noted between them.
Warticon Solution is a blue-coloured solution that may cause the area of application to appear blue during treatment. Warticon Cream is a white cream that soaks in upon application.
How to use Warticon
When you buy Warticon online for genital warts, applying the medication will vary slightly depending on if you are using the cream or solution.
Before applying Warticon, make sure to wash the affected area(s) with soap and water, then dry the area down with a clean towel.
Both Warticon Cream and Warticon Solution are applied once in the morning and once in the evening (every 12 hours) for 3 consecutive days. For the next 4 days do not apply any Warticon (this counts as a single course of treatment).
The Patient Information Leaflet (PIL) states that a maximum of 4 treatment courses may be applied. If any warts remain after this period, you should see your own doctor.
How to apply Warticon Cream
Using a fingertip, apply the exact amount of cream that is required to cover each wart, rubbing the cream into the wart(s). Should you accidentally apply cream to healthy skin, this should be washed off as soon as possible. Wash your hands thoroughly after you have finished applying Warticon Cream.
How to apply Warticon Solution
Simply dip the ‘loop’ end of the applicator into the solution. If you have a larger wart (e.g. up to the size of a postage stamp), or lots of warts within a small area, dip the ‘spatula’ end of the applicator into the solution. Then apply the solution to a wart until it is fully covered by solution, again making sure to avoid ‘healthy’ skin. Wash away any excess if you apply the solution to healthy skin. Next, wait for it to dry and repeat these steps to apply the solution to all warts. Wash your hands thoroughly after you have finished applying Warticon Solution.
