What is Condyline?
Condyline is an alcoholic solution for genital warts treatment. Genital warts are a form of sexually transmitted infection, and are small lumps or growths that occur around the genital region. Genital warts are transmitted through vaginal and anal sexual intercourse and skin to skin contact.
Condyline is prescription medication. You can only buy Condyline after visiting your GP or sexual health clinic and you have been diagnosed with genital warts. If you have already been prescribed Condyline, we can provide it to you following a brief online consultation. Contact us to find out more.
For more information, please read the patient information leaflet.
How it works
Condyline contains the active ingredient podophyllotoxin, derived from the roots of the podophyllum plant. Condyline works by penetrating the wart tissue, preventing the wart cells from dividing and multiplying. As a result, the wart cells die, and new healthy tissue grows in their place.
Condyline may clear up genital warts after one three-day treatment, although it can take up to five three-day treatments for them to disappear completely.
Before you take it
You should not use Condyline if you are allergic to the active ingredient podophyllotoxin, or any of the other inactive ingredients in the medication. Consult your doctor, who will be able to recommend an alternative treatment for your condition.
Condyline should not be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding, as it can be absorbed through the skin and may harm an unborn or nursing child. You should seek an alternative treatment if you are pregnant.
Do not take Condyline if you are taking any other medication for the treatment of genital warts.
This medication is for external use only. Do not apply it internally, including ingestion through the mouth. Do not apply it on broken skin or on an open wound.
Condyline should only be used to treat isolated, small, soft warts. The total area of affected skin must only be around 4cm x 4cm or smaller. Do not apply Condyline to larger clusters of warts, or to hard warts. You should inform your doctor in this case to obtain a prescription for an alternative treatment.
You should be aware that you can reduce your risk of contracting genital warts by practicing safe sex, such as using a condom. Condoms can also help with preventing the warts from spreading to other people.
Condyline can, in some cases, cause systemic toxicity. This is more likely if you use Condyline to treat skin that is fragile, bleeding or has had warts removed recently, by using Condyline excessively for long periods of time, or if you use other products containing podophyllotoxin.
This medicine will not affect your ability to drive or operate machinery.
Condyline is not known to interact with other medications. However, you should inform them of any other prescription medications you are taking.
You must always take Condyline exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Never exceed the stated dose. If you are in any way unsure of how to take Condyline, talk to your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
Condyline should be used in the morning. Make sure to wash the affected area with soap and water before applying Condyline. Wash your hands before and after use.
Your Condyline solution will come with a set of plastic applicator sticks. The plastic applicator has a hole in it. Dip the applicator into the bottle, so that the hole is filled with solution.
Condyline must be applied directly to the wart, making sure to cover all of the affected area in this way. You should use no more than 50 applications at any one time - Condyline is only intended to treat small areas of warts. Only apply to clean, healthy skin.
You should repeat this process twelve hours later, on the same day, and then twice per day for the next two days, meaning that you will apply Condyline six times in three days. After this, do not apply Condyline again within the first week.
Your doctor may advise you to repeat the treatment during the following week if the warts have not improved. It may also be necessary to repeat the treatment for a third, fourth and fifth week. Do not do this without your doctor’s advice. You should not use Condyline for more than five weeks.
Store Condyline in a cool, dry place, away from heat and moisture. Keep it away from children and pets.
Common Side Effects of Condyline
Condyline may cause mild side effects in some patients. Most patients will not experience these, although if you do, they should go away on their own when you stop using the medication. However, if they persist or concern you, contact your doctor. Side effects include:
- Inflammation of the head of the penis or foreskin
- Irritation in and around the vagina
- Mild irritation of the warts after you apply the solution - this includes burning, itching, redness or blistering
Condyline can cause an allergic reaction in some patients. This is very rare, but an allergic reaction is an emergency, so you must immediately seek medical advice if you believe you are experiencing an allergic reaction. Symptoms include:
- Nettle rash
- Trouble breathing or speaking
- Tightness in the chest or throat
This is not an exhaustive list of side effects. For a full list, consult the patient information leaflet.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Do I need a prescription?
Yes. You must have a prescription to use Condyline, and your warts must have been viewed by a sexual health clinic or your GP.
I’m pregnant. Can I use Condyline?
No. Do not use Condyline if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Speak with your doctor to discuss an alternative treatment for your condition.
What happens if I miss a dose?
If you miss your dose of Condyline, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is nearly time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue taking Condyline as prescribed. Do not apply twice the amount to make up for a missed dose.
What happens if I use too much?
If you accidentally apply too much medication, or apply it to the wrong place, you should wash the affected area with soap and water. If you realise you have used more Condyline than you should have for an extended period, you are at risk of systemic toxicity and you must go to your doctor. Condyline is a cutaneous solution and is for topical use only. If you have drunk the liquid, you must immediately go to your nearest hospital.
