What is Warticon?

Warticon is also referred to as Wartec and contains the active ingredient podophyllotoxin, found in the roots of the podophyllum plant. It is used for treating soft and/or small clusters of genital warts outside the body. For internal genital warts, there will be various other treatments suitable.

The visible symptoms of HPV can often cause a great deal of discomfort. Warticon is a fast and effective treatment for genital warts, clearing outbreaks in as little as a few weeks and relieving symptoms within 24 hours. This makes Warticon one of the fastest acting genital warts treatments available in the UK. The cream can also remain on the skin and doesn't need to be wiped or rinsed off like other warts treatment. This means it is effective and appropriate for many people with sensitive skin.

This medication is also very simple to use and apply, allowing you to treat this condition from the comfort of your own home.

What is genital warts and HPV?

Genital warts are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV), which is a condition that is spread through sexual contact. This virus lays dormant for long periods of time before becoming active and causing outbreaks of genital warts. These appear as small fleshy lumps on or around the genital area and can often be quite discomforting. Whilst there is no cure for the virus itself, the warts that it causes are treatable. Warticon provides fast and effective relief from the symptoms of HPV, helping to clear outbreaks of warts in as little as a few weeks.

For further information on genital warts, the causes, how they are spread and symptoms, you can visit our genital warts information page.

How does Warticon work?

Warticon contains the same active ingredient as Condyline, which is derived from the roots of a plant known as podophyllum. This treatment is administered externally directly onto the wart.

  • The active ingredient attacks the nucleus of cells and inhibits reproduction.
  • The cells cannot multiply further causing the existing warts cells to die
  • The warts are replaced by healthy tissue.

This method of treatment makes Warticon one of the fastest acting genital wart treatments available.

How do you use Warticon?

Warticon is an external treatment that is applied directly onto the warts. The application and dosage should be followed to ensure the warts clear completely, even if symptoms appear to have disappeared.

  • Wash the area with soap and water and dry it with a clean towel.
  • Apply a thin layer directly onto the wart(s).
  • Do not get any cream on healthy skin. If this does happen, wash the area to avoid skin irritation.
  • Apply this treatment twice a day (once in the morning and once in the evening) for three days.
  • Have a four-day break up to day seven of your course.
  • If warts are still present on the seventh day, restart this treatment course once again.
  • This can be repeated up to four times (up to one month). If the warts are still present, seek doctor assistance.
  • Keep the skin free from dressings and plasters and allow the cream to dress before covering.
  • If you get Warticon in your eyes, wash thoroughly and immediately. Seek medical advice.

This treatment is designed for external use only and should not be used on warts inside the penis, vagina or anus. If you have warts located in these areas, please consult with your doctor to find the right treatment option for you.

When you buy Warticon online here, you will be provided with a patient leaflet that will have full instructions on how and when you should use this treatment. Please ensure that you read this leaflet in full before you begin the treatment.

Warticon Side Effects

Warticon is a topical treatment applied directly to the skin, therefore, side effects are particularly rare as Warticon is not tablets ingested into the system.

Whilst the vast majority will not experience any negative effects from using Warticon and it is very tolerable if there is an issue this is usually due to irritation on the skin.

Symptoms include skin irritation, rash, soreness and inflammation around the site of warts.

The patient leaflet will have a full list of the potential side effects from this medication. These symptoms should be temporary but you should consult with your doctor if you experience anything persistent that causes you discomfort.

If you are experiencing hives, a large rash, breathlessness or swelling around the head and face, this could be an allergic reaction and require immediate medical care.

Warticon Precautions

Warticon is a widely used genital warts treatment that is generally very well tolerated, however, there are some precautions you can take.

This medication is designed for people who are over the age of 18 and should not be used on children. It may not be prescribed to you if you are hypersensitive (allergic) to any of the ingredients, or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. If any of these apply to you, please consult with your doctor to find the right treatment option for you.

It is advised to avoid sexual intercourse until the warts have cleared completely. Genital warts at this stage is extremely contagious. Whilst sex with condoms may help reduce the chance, there is no 100% guarantee that you won't pass the virus onto your partner.

To clarify, Warticon should not be used internally in the vagina, anus or penis.
