You can only use Warticon on external genital warts (warts on the outside of your body). If you have internal warts, talk to your doctor about finding a different treatment.
You can buy Warticon in solution form, or as a cream.
The active ingredient in Warticon is a plant extract called podophyllotoxin. It has useful anti-viral properties. This means it can fight off the virus that causes genital warts.
When you apply Warticon cream or solution directly onto warts, the medicine has a toxic effect on the wart cells. This means that the warts can’t make copies of themselves, so they can’t spread even further.
Once you have started the treatment, the warts will start getting smaller. The wart cells stop making new cells and are replaced by healthy skin cells.
After a few weeks, the warts should eventually disappear.
A clinical study shows that the active ingredient in Warticon (podophyllotoxin) is successful in clearing warts in over ¾ of people taking it.
That means there is a 75% success rate in treating genital warts.
Warticon has the same active ingredient as Condyline, which is another treatment for genital warts.
Another option for treating genital warts is Aldara. This medicine has a different active ingredient called imiquimod.
