Description

What is Condylox Solution (Podofilox) prescribed for?

 

Warts are a type of skin growth that is caused by papillomavirus (HPV). And there are more than 60 kinda of HPV. Genital warts can appear in the pubic area, on the genitals, in or around the anus, and in the vagina. They appear as small pink or red growths, and often appear in clusters.

 

However, this medication is used to remove certain types of warts that reside on the outside skin of the genital area. These warts appear to be small, but they may cause mild pain. These are commonly sexually transmitted. How this medication works is that it stops the growth of the wart, leading to the wart to eventually falling off.

 

This medication comes in the singular dose, which is 0.50%. Remember your dose is based on your medical background and your overall response to the treatment. If your doctor or pharmacist has given you some information in the form of a pamphlet, take the time to read up on this drug, and if you have any questions or concerns regarding this medication, please consult your doctor.

Directions

This medication is to be used on the skin only, and only place this medication on to genital warts that your doctor has identified for you. Do not use this medication on any warts that are around the anus or on the urethra, rectum or the vagina, or inside your body, or on any other skin growths on your body.

Use this medicine about twice daily, one in the morning and once in the evening. Usually every 12 hours. Use it for 3 days in a row, followed up by no treatment for the next 4 days. If the warts do not disappear within that time frame, you may repeat the 7 day cycle up to a total of 4 treatment weeks in a row. But keep in mind, you must do as your doctor has instructed you.

First wash the area to be treated with soap and water, and dry thoroughly. Use an applicator that comes with this product, dip it into the solution just enough to wet it, but not so much that solution is dripping from the tip. Apply this medication only to the warts your doctor has directed you to treat. Do not apply it to the area surrounding the warts. It may help to use a hand mirror.

For warts within skin folds, pull the skin fold open and apply the medication. Let the medication dry before allowing the skin folds around the warts to return to their normal position.

Use the applicator only once. Throw it away after use in a safe space. One finished wash your hands with soap and water. Do not cover the treated area with any kind of bandages or other dressings.
