Warticon contains a medicine called podophyllotoxin. This is a plant extract which belongs to a group of medicines called ‘antivirals’.
Warticon is used to treat genital warts. It is used for warts on the foreskin of the penis in men or external warts on the vagina in females.
Always use this Warticon exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. Use this medicine only on your skin. Apply Warticon twice a day, in the morning and evening (every 12 hours) for 3 days. Do not apply any Warticon for the next 4 days. This completes one treatment course. When you apply Warticon Solution, after two or three days you may notice mild irritation of the areas treated. This shows that Warticon Solution is starting to work. However, Warticon Solution can cause severe skin reactions. If this occurs, stop using Warticon Solution and seek medical attention. If you still have any warts remaining 7 days after you have started using Warticon, repeat the treatment course (twice a day for 3 days followed by 4 days when you do not apply it). A maximum of 4 treatment courses may be applied.
How to apply Warticon Solution: wash the affected areas with soap and water. Dry the area gently with a clean towel. Use a new applicator each time you apply Warticon Solution. Dip the loop end of the applicator into the Warticon Solution. If you have a large wart (no larger than a postage stamp) or lots of warts in a small area, dip the ?Spatula? end of the applicator into the solution. Apply the solution to a wart until it is just covered and allow to dry. Be careful not to get the Warticon onto healthy skin. If this happens, wash the solution off with soap and water. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for each wart. Allow all the skin treated with Warticon Solution to dry before letting other skin touch the affected area. Wash your hands thoroughly after using Warticon Solution. Make sure you screw the lid back on tightly.
