Note: You must complete a short online consultation so that our doctor can ensure that the treatment is suitable for you. The above pricing should only be used as a reference. The final decision to issue this treatment lies with the prescribing doctor.

What is Warticon?

Warticon is a medication designed to treat genital warts, a common sexually transmitted infection (STI).

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.

How does Warticon work?

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.

How do I use Warticon?

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.

Warticon Cream

A small mirror is included to help with application.

  1. Wash the affected area with soap and water.
  2. Dry the area thoroughly using a clean towel.
  3. Using a fingertip, apply the cream onto the wart, making sure it does not come into contact with healthy skin.
  4. Wash your hands after you have finished.

Warticon Solution

The solution comes with an applicator. A diagram detailing how to use it is included in the patient information leaflet.

  1. Wash the affected area with soap and water.
  2. Dry the area thoroughly using a clean towel.
  3. For small clusters or separate warts, dip the loop of the applicator into the solution. For larger warts or clusters, use the spatula end.
  4. Apply the solution until it is covered, being careful not to get the solution into contact with healthy skin.
  5. Allow treated skin to dry completely before letting it touch other skin.
  6. Wash your hands after you have finished.

You should avoid touching your eyes or face while applying this treatment.

Warticon dosages

You can buy Warticon in two different dosages from euroClinix:

  • Warticon cream, which comes in a 5g tube containing 0.15% podophyllotoxin
  • Warticon solution, which comes in a 5ml bottle containing 0.5% podophyllotoxin

What precautions should I take?

This treatment is intended for external use on small clusters of warts.

Take care to avoid getting the solution or cream in contact with healthy skin, as this can cause irritation. If contact does occur, wash the area thoroughly with soap and water.

You should not use this medication if you:

  • are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • allergic to any of the ingredients
  • are using other products containing podophyllotoxin at the same time

You should let the doctor know before use if you need to treat a large area.

The Warticon solution is flammable, so it is important that you avoid smoking or being near an open flame while applying it, as well as immediately after you’ve used it

What are the side effects of Warticon?

As with all prescription medication, there is risk of side effects, although they are usually mild and short-lived, and not everybody will experience them.

The most common side effects include:

  • soreness
  • inflammation
  • irritation of the application site

If you notice anything particularly concerning, or if you experience anything more serious such as severe burning, pain, and itching of the skin, or an allergic reaction, seek immediate medical attention.

Can I buy Warticon online?

You can buy both Warticon cream and Warticon solution online from euroClinix. As this is a prescription medication, you will need to complete an online consultation when ordering. One of our UK-based doctors will assess your responses to make sure that this treatment is suitable for you. Your prescription will then be dispatched from our accredited UK pharmacy with free next-day delivery.
