What is Warticon?

Warticon is a topical treatment for genital warts - a condition which is caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV).

The treatment belongs to a class of medicines known as antivirals. These medicines prevent the spread of a virus in the body and helps to improve symptoms.

Warticon is available as a topical cream or solution. You can buy genital wart treatments online from Prescription Doctor following a short online consultation with one of our doctors.


What are genital warts?

Genital warts are small lumps or growths which appear on and around the genitals. Warts on the genitals may appear in scattered clusters which resemble cauliflower florets. They may be itchy or bleed, especially if scratched, though the warts are painless in most cases.

In men, warts may appear on the skin of the penis. Women may experience warts around the vulva (the opening to the vagina). However, they can also occur around the anus in both men and women.

The warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). The virus is usually passed on through sexual contact such as vaginal, anal and, though rarely, oral sex, or by sharing sex toys. It is possible to pass genital warts on to your partner while using a condom, if the condom does not cover the affected area.

Warts may appear long after being infected with the virus. The virus can lay dormant in your body and may not cause any symptoms for over a year. Even if symptoms aren't present, it is possible to pass the virus on to others through sexual contact.

To protect yourself and your partner from genital warts, it's important to wear condoms every time you have sex.

Your doctor will usually diagnose genital warts based on their appearance. They may use a swab of acetic acid to confirm their presence - if genital warts are present, the acetic acid will show up as white patches.

Genital warts can be mistaken for other conditions such as benign skin tags, molluscum contagiosum, pearly penile papsules, fordyce spots or, particularly around the anus, haemorrhoids.

If you are unsure whether you have genital warts, speak to your GP. You can also seek advice and treatment from a sexual health or genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinic.

How does Warticon work?

The active ingredient of Warticon, called podophyllotoxin, works by inhibiting the virus' ability to replicate inside the body.

To maintain its presence in the body, the virus infects a host cell.

The virus injects its own genetic instructions into the cell, making the cell produce more copies of the virus.

Once these copies are ready, they escape the nucleus of the cell, killing the cell in the process. These new copies then seek out other host cells and the cycle continues.

When podophyllotoxin is absorbed by the skin, it prevents these cells from dividing. As a result, the cells die along with the virus, which allows new and healthy cells to take their place. Over time, the virus' presence in the body diminishes enough for the immune system to fight, clearing the warts.


How to use Warticon?

One package of Warticon provides a month of treatment. Warticon is applied twice daily - once in the morning, and 12 hours later in the evening.

Warticon should be applied to small warts or clusters no larger than 4 cm in diameter.

Warticon is for external use only and is only indicated for genital warts. Do not use Warticon on internal warts which may be found inside the vagina or anus.

Warticon is available as a solution or a cream.

How to apply Warticon cream?

Before you apply Warticon cream, it's important to wash the area with water and a mild soap. Gently dry the area with a towel before applying the cream.

Use your fingertip to apply a small amount of Warticon cream to the warts. Use just enough Warticon cream to cover each wart.

Rub the cream into the wart. Be careful not to apply the cream to the healthy skin surrounding the warts. If you accidentally apply Warticon cream to healthy skin, wash away the cream with soap and water.

Always wash your hands after applying Warticon cream.

Ensure the lid has been screwed on tightly before storing Warticon cream.

How to apply Warticon solution?

Before you apply Warticon solution, wash the area with soap and water. Gently dry the area with a towel before applying the solution.

Use a new applicator every time. The applicator has two ends - a "loop" end and a "spatula" end. The "loop" end is used for individual warts while the "spatula" end is used for larger area or clusters of warts no bigger than a postage stamp.

Dip the end of the applicator into the solution then apply it to the wart.

Ensure that the wart is completely covered with the solution and allow it to dry.

Be careful not to apply Warticon solution to healthy areas of skin surrounding a wart. If you accidentally apply Warticon solution to health skin, wash it away with soap and water.

Always wash your hands thoroughly after using Warticon solution.

Make sure the lid is screwed on tightly before storing Warticon solution.
