Treatment information: Condyline
Condyline is an effective treatment for genital warts and was the first to be given medical approval as a prescription medication for this purpose. The active ingredient podophyllotoxin is drawn from a species of plant known as Podophyllum.
This medication is known for being extremely fast-acting and effective with results that can be seen in just three days. After a month of taking this treatment, the outbreak should be completely cleared.
How does Condyline work?
Condyline's active ingredient, podophyllotoxin, will penetrate the outer tissue of the genital wart gaining access to the nucleus. Once inside, the treatment has the ability to stop the reproduction of cells, as the nucleus is where cell division and growth occurs. Acting lethally to kill these cells, Condyline breaks up the environment in which they thrive. Once they are dead, new healthy tissue is produced and it will be evident that the outbreak has cleared.
What are the benefits of Condyline?
Condyline gel is one of the best treatments on the market for genital warts. Rapidly effective, Condyline can help cure your outbreak in as little as a month. It compares favourably with its alternative surgical options, such as cryotherapy and electrocautery, as using it will not result in pain or scarring. The medication can be applied yourself, so you do not need to rely on a medical professional to administer the solution. This makes it a very convenient solution.
What are the side effects of Condyline?
Condyline is a treatment that is considered safe, but as with all types of medication you may experience side effects on rare occasions. If you do experience them, they will often be mild and will not bother you for too long. Some of the most common include vomiting, dizziness, and inflammation or stinging on the area which you have treated. On a very rare occasion, you may experience a more severe adverse reaction to the treatment. These could include swelling of the lips, face or tongue, and hives.
Can anyone take Condyline?
Condyline is safe and can be taken by adults and the elderly although children should not take this treatment. You should not use this medication if you are allergic to any of its ingredients, including the active ingredient, podophyllotoxin. It should also not be used if you are currently pregnant or breastfeeding.
Condyline should be applied the area where the wart exists using the applicator which you will find in the pack, or a clean finger tip. Whichever you choose, ensure that it is appropriately washed and clean. Apply the cream to the infected area twice a day for a continuous three day period. This should be followed by a break of four days. Repeat this process for four weeks or until the wart has gone. If the treatment has not worked and the wart remains, you should seek an alternative treatment.
A small amount of cream is required to treat each wart. Using too much could encourage irritation of the skin or other unwanted side effects.
