What is Condyline?
Condyline is a topical cutaneous solution that contains the plant extract podophyllotoxin as its active ingredient.
You need a prescription to buy Condyline. Most people who are given a prescription to use Condyline are done so to treat genital warts.
What is Condyline used to treat?
Condyline solution is primarily used in the treatment of genital warts in both men and women. To destroy genital warts, Condyline must be applied in weekly cycles.
Genital warts are the result of an infection of the human papillomavirus (HPV). 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.
Why is Condyline prescribed to treat genital warts?
Condyline can often improve the condition within just three days of use, although it may take longer for genital warts to clear completely. It will normally clear smaller outbreaks within five weeks of treatment.
Condyline's active ingredient, podophyllotoxin, has been clinically proven to be a safe and effective treatment for genital warts.
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 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.
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.
If you have any concerns as to whether Condyline is suitable for you, do not hesitate to speak to your doctor.
Further information can be found under the Warnings tab on this page. Always read the patient information leaflet for full details on warnings.

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. Although both versions 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 warts to stop them from 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.
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.
Avoid contact with the eyes, lips and nostrils.
How to use Condyline
- 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 instructions.

How fast will Condyline treat my warts?Normally, Condyline will have cleared a case of genital warts within five weeks. If you still have genital warts after this length of treatment, tell your doctor.
How safe is Condyline?Condyline is considered to be a safe medicine providing you use it as instructed and only when prescribed. In the unlikely event that you exhibit any symptoms of an allergic reaction, you should stop using it immediately and seek medical attention.
Is HPV a lifelong problem?HPV can be dormant in a person for many years after they catch it. Most cases of HPV will clear within two years due to the immune system being able to fight it off. After this time, the virus will be eliminated from the body.
Is Condyline better than Warticon?Condyline and Warticon both contain the same active ingredient, podophyllotoxin, and both work in the same way. Both also have similar treatment lengths for genital warts.
Do I need to be worried if I have HPV?HPV is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections. In a lot of instances, the body can fight the virus on its own and it will go away without causing any issues within one or two years. If HPV causes issues like genital warts, you should speak to your doctor or sexual health clinic about the most appropriate treatment. If you are diagnosed with HPV, it is important to see your doctor.
Can I cut warts off myself?You should never cut warts off yourself. This will not treat the problem and often just helps to spread the virus. Always speak to your doctor about using medical treatment.
How long can warts last?Without treatment, most people’s warts will clear up after around two years. However, using a wart treatment can help to make warts last for a significantly shorter period than this.
When should I stop my treatment with Condyline?Do not use Condyline once the bottle has been open for six weeks. If your doctor tells you to stop using the medicine, or if your warts have cleared completely, you can also stop using it. How long you will need to use Condyline will depend on how your warts respond to treatment.
What if Condyline doesn’t work?If you find that your genital warts do not respond to treatment after five weeks, speak to your doctor.
Can I drink alcohol with it?Drinking alcohol will not affect Condyline.
