More information about Warticon (Wartec)
Warticon, also sold as Wartec, is an effective treatment for the sexually transmitted infection (STI) genital warts. It is used on warts located on the foreskin of the penis and external warts on the vagina.
If you have warts inside the urethra, vagina or rectum, you should consider different treatments.
This treatment is available as a cream or solution - containing the same active ingredient. The difference is in their consistency (the cream is thicker than the solution) and how they are applied - details are in the “How do I use Warticon” section. When used correctly, both versions are equally effective.
It is important that you do not have sex whilst you are presenting warts. Genital warts is a very contagious condition. To prevent spreading them to your partner, you should wait until they have gone, and use a condom. Even if you do not have warts, you will still be contagious.
Please note - the solution version of Warticon is flammable. Avoid smoking or going near open flames while, and shortly after, applying the solution.
Genital warts are caused by a particular strain of the human papillomavirus (HPV). The condition is passed on through sex and unfortunately has no cure - however, you may go through extended periods in your life where you do not have any outbreaks.
It is very important that you treat any outbreaks, as untreated warts can grow in size and multiply.
Warticon contains the active ingredient podophyllotoxin, a plant extract. It penetrates the wart tissue and targets the reproduction of the cells. Podophyllotoxin has a toxic effect on the nucleus of cells, which stops them from dividing and multiplying. Without this ability, the wart cells die and are replaced by healthy cells.
As this medicine targets warts directly, you should not use it on healthy tissue. Once blisters have gone, you should stop applying it.
You should always follow the advice of your doctor or pharmacist when applying any treatment.
The way that you apply Warticon will depend on whether it is a cream or solution (there is also a gel option - though this is not available to buy from HealthExpress).
For both versions of Warticon:
Warticon cream comes in a 5g tube with 1.5mg of podophyllotoxin in every gram.
A mirror is also included in the pack to help you apply the cream.
The solution comes with a double-sided applicator. For more detailed instructions, please consult the patient information leaflet (PIL).
Further information as to the usage of the treatment can be found in the PIL.
Do not use either of these treatments any other skin conditions - they will not work and may cause adverse effects.
Warticon does pose a small risk of side effects, but any that do occur will most likely be very mild and brief.
As this is a topical treatment, skin reactions generally relate to the site of application:
If you experience these effects more severely, or if they do not fade, you should contact your GP for further advice.
More serious side effects, especially those associated with an allergic reaction such as hives, a rash, shortness of breath or facial swelling should be reported to a doctor immediately. However, it is very unlikely you will experience an allergic reaction.
Most adults can use Warticon safely and effectively. However, there are some conditions and medications (including over-the-counter) that may make its use ineffective or dangerous.
You should ask your doctor about other treatment if:

You should notice some mild irritation in the areas you applied Warticon to. This shows the treatment is working, but if you experience any severe skin reaction you should speak to your healthcare provider as soon as possible.

Label recommends using the solution for 3 consecutive days and then stopping for 4. I saw results on the 7th day. Depending on the size of warts, you may need to continue treatment as recommended on the label. Follow the instructions carefully.Fab
