Warticon is recommended for the treatment of small clusters of external vaginal or penile warts. For internal warts, or large clusters of warts, the doctor will recommend a more appropriate treatment.
You can buy Warticon online as either a 0.5% solution or 0.15% cream. They both contain the same active ingredient and are equally effective.
The active ingredient in Warticon is a plant extract known as podophyllotoxin, which has antiviral properties. It was the first topical medication approved to treat genital warts.
When applied directly to the warts, Warticon has a toxic effect on wart cells. It inactivates the nucleus of the cells, which prevents them from dividing and multiplying. The wart cells stop producing new cells and are replaced by healthy skin cells.
You should always follow the advice of your doctor when using any medication.
One treatment course involves applying Warticon twice daily in the morning and evening for three days, followed by no treatment four days. If you still notice warts after 7 days, repeat the treatment course. If warts are still present after four rounds of treatment, ask your doctor for advice.
The way that you apply this treatment depends on whether you are using the cream or solution.
