Overview

NOTE: After selecting this product, you will need to complete a short assessment, so we can make sure this medication is suitable for you.

Warticon is a topical treatment prescribed to treat genital warts. The active ingredient in Warticon is podophyllotoxin, which works by attacking the HPV virus that causes genital warts. Warticon stops the HPV virus from replicating and spreading, resulting in the warts dying and new, healthy tissue grows instead. Warticon is suitable for treatment on the external skin of the penis, vagina, or surrounding area of the groin. It should not be used internally and it is not licensed for use around the anus.

If you follow the recommended course of treatment (two applications per day, 12 hours apart, for three consecutive days of each week), genital warts treated with Warticon should be fully eliminated within four to five weeks.

Warticon is not a suitable treatment for you if:

  • You are allergic to podophyllotoxin or any of the other ingredients
  • The skin around or covering your wart (or warts) is damaged, broken or bleeding
  • You have warts covering an area greater than 4cm squared (around the size of a postage stamp)
  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding

While using Warticon, avoid:

  • Using the application on healthy skin
  • Getting the application in your eyes or mouth
  • Using the application on the inside of the vagina, penis or rectum
  • Covering any treated areas with plasters or dressings

Directions

Dosage

Warticon should be applied twice each day (with a 12-hour gap between the applications) for three consecutive days, then stop treatment for the following four days - this is one cycle of treatment. You can safely use Warticon for four to five consecutive cycles if needed.

To apply Warticon Cream:

Wash all affected areas with soap and water, then dry with a towel. Gently rub cream onto the warts, just enough to cover them, using your fingertips. Then wash your hands thoroughly.

To apply Warticon Solution:

Wash all affected areas with soap and water, then dry with a towel. Dip the loop end of the applicator into the solution. If your wart is large or you have a clump of warts, dip the spatula end into the solution. Apply the solution to each wart until it is covered, do not apply to healthy skin. Allow the solution to dry on the skin. Screw the lid back on and wash your hand thoroughly.
