Condyline for the treatment of Genital Warts
Genital warts are a common sexually transmitted infection caused by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). Genital warts are highly contagious and can be passed on even when there are no visible signs of genital warts.
Genital warts may go away without the need of treatment, however in most cases it can take months for the warts to clear. Condyline can clear genital warts within 4 weeks of treatment.
Condyline is a prescription only medicine in the UK, it can be bought online from Medicine Direct.
What is Condyline?
Condyline is a topical cutaneous solution which contains the plant extract podophyllotoxin as its active ingredient.
Condyline solution is primarily used in the treatment of genital warts in both men and women. To destroy the genital warts, Condyline must be applied in weekly cycles.
It will normally clear smaller outbreaks within five weeks of treatment.
What is Condyline used to treat?
Most people who are given a prescription to use Condyline are done so to treat genital warts.
This treatment can often improve the condition within just three days of use, although it may take longer for genital warts to clear completely.
Genital warts are the result of an infection of the human papillomavirus (HPV). The warts can grow around the vagina, penis or anus and are frequently spread through sexual intercourse. While both men and women can suffer from genital warts, the problem is slightly more common in women.
How does Condyline work?
This solution contains the plant extract podophyllotoxin, which enters the nuclei of the infected cells and acts on the mechanism that makes genital wart cells divide. This means that genital warts cannot grow or spread to anywhere else, which promotes healthy skin to replace the wart tissue.
Condyline is effective in the treatment of genital warts when used at an early stage, before the infection has had a chance to spread over a larger area. Condyline is most effective when used on smaller warts and can help to suppress the signs and symptoms caused by genital warts.
How to use Condyline
You should start your course of treatment in the morning.
Use Condyline twice a day for three days. This means you will have six treatments in three days. After this, you should not apply the treatment again in the first week.
- Wash the affected area with soap and water before you apply Condyline. Dry the clean skin well.
- Dip the end of the applicator stick with a hole in it into the bottle. Dip the stick far enough so that the hole is filled with solution.
- Apply the solution to a wart and let it dry on its own. Cover each wart in the same way. Do not use more than 50 dips.
- Replace the bottle’s top and wash your hands thoroughly after use.
- You should repeat these steps 12 hours later and then again the next morning, twice a day.
If one week of treatment is not sufficient to remove all your warts, your doctor may tell you to repeat this treatment cycle for a second time. You may also need to do this for several more weeks after this. Tell your doctor if your warts have not healed after the recommended course of treatment.
Always make sure you read the patient information leaflet before you start to use Condyline. Here, you will find full details on instructions.
Who can use Condyline?
You should not use Condyline if any of the following apply to you:
- You are currently using or have recently used any other medicines which contain podophyllotoxin
- You have recently had surgery and still have any open wounds near the affected area
- You are allergic to podophyllotoxin or any other ingredients contained in this solution
This medicine should only be used by adults, it is not suitable for children.

Various treatments can help to clear genital warts. Warticon is another renowned medication for effectively treating genital warts in a similar time frame as Condyline. Warticon is available as a cream or solution; while both contain the same active ingredient, the cream may be better suited for women, while the solution may be easier for men to treat genital warts.
Aldara Cream is also available. This cream works by killing the cells within the warts to stop them spreading and will normally clear the problem within 8 weeks.
Our pharmacist and prescribers follow NICE prescribing guidelines when prescribing Condyline.
Condyline should only be applied externally. Do not apply the solution to any soft mucous membrane tissue, such as the vagina or anus.
Avoid contact with the eyes, lips and nostrils.
What if I miss an application?
If you miss a scheduled application time, apply Condyline as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next scheduled application, skip the missed treatment and continue to apply the solution as usual.
Do not double up a dose of any medication to try and make up for a missed dose. This will not work and can increase your chances of developing unwanted side effects as a result.
To ensure you do not forget to apply this treatment, it is best if you apply it at the same times every day to get into a routine of doing it.
