Condylox Topical Solution is an antimitotic drug most frequently used to treat exterior genital warts. It may also be used to treat the skin condition molluscum contagiosum.
Who Uses Condylox Topical Solution?
This medication is for treatment of specific conditions, primarily genital warts. It is important that a physician verifies the type of wart before using Condylox Topical Solution; this medication will not treat all types.
The solution removes exterior genital warts on and around the genitals and rectum. This medication should never be used inside the vagina, urine passageways inside the penis, or inside the anus.
How Does it Work?
Condylox Topical Solution is an antimitotic medication which interferes with cell division, causing the treated wart to stop growing and eventually fall off.
There is some variety in patient response to treatment. In many cases treated warts which fall off do not return for some time. In other cases they may quickly regrow.
How is it Used?
The prescribing physician should carefully explain how to use this product, and may even demonstrate its use. It is very important to follow physician instructions exactly.
The dosage of this medication will vary depending on the condition being treated and patient condition.
For the majority of patients this medication will be applied twice daily, morning and evening, for 3 consecutive days. This is followed by 4 days with no treatment, after which the 3 day cycle may begin again if needed, for up to four weeks in a row. Do not use this product more frequently unless explicitly instructed by a physician.
The affected area should be cleaned and dried prior to application. The solution can be applied with a q-tip or similar applicator. It should be applied only to the wart; avoid getting it on surrounding healthy skin. Each applicator should be used only once and disposed of -- do not dip a used applicator in the solution.
If warts are in skin folds or otherwise contact healthy tissue, hold the tissue away until the solution has dried completely.
Used applicators should be disposed of carefully and the medicine should be stored in a secure place to avoid accidental contact by pets or children.
