What is Warticon?

Warticon podophyllotoxin 0.5% w/v solution and Warticon 0.15% w/w cream Podophyllotoxin (also both referred to throughout this text as Warticon) belongs to a group of medications called antivirals. The active ingredient in the medicine is from a plant extract called podophyllotoxin, derived from the roots of the podophyllum plant.

Warticon is a genital warts treatment used to remove the physical symptoms of the human papillomavirus in the genital area. Warticon wart treatment can be used by both males and females to treat genital warts present on the foreskin of the penis and on the vagina.

Warticon is prescription only - it is only available to you from a pharmacy or online service if you have seen a doctor and have obtained a prescription for Warticon.

To find out more about Warticon or for further information, please see the Patient Information Leaflet for Warticon Solution and Warticon Cream.

How it works

Genital warts are a contagious sexually transmitted disease that is spreadable through sexual intercourse. It is possible to give them to, or get them from, a sexual partner.

Warticon is a topical treatment that penetrates into the wart cells, and like other antiviral medicines, works by preventing a virus from multiplying and growing. Over time, this can kill the wart and prevent it from spreading.

The genital warts virus can be passed on even when warts are not visible. Genital warts are caused by a type of the human papilloma virus (also known as HPV). As HPV stays in the skin, it is possible for genital warts to return.

Before you take it

Most people over the age of 18 that require treatment may use Warticon. In some circumstances, the treatment may be unsuitable if you are already using another product containing podophyllotoxin or if your warts are on or near bleeding, damaged or broken skin.

Warticon contains podophyllotoxin. If you are allergic to podophyllotoxin, you must not use Warticon. Speak with your doctor to discuss an alternative treatment for your condition.

Warticon contains phosphoric acid. If you are allergic to phosphoric acid, you should not use Warticon.

The diagnosis of genital warts should be made by a qualified healthcare professional only.

Warticon will not treat other sexual health problems, such as chlamydia or genital herpes. You must visit your doctor or take an STI test to determine the type of infection you have and whether Warticon is a suitable treatment. You may require other treatments to address your condition.

Warticon is for external use only.

We do not prescribe any medications to people under 18 years old.
