Warticon Cream & Solution reviews
Warticon Cream & Solution FAQs
Yes, Warticon can cause irritation in the treated area, most commonly when used for the first time. It is not typically serious and should quickly subside. Should your symptoms become more severe, you should immediately consult your doctor.
No, you should only use one treatment for genital warts at a time. Furthermore, do not apply generic wart treatments to genital warts, regardless of the circumstances — they’re likely to aggravate the skin and may even leave scars after use.
Warticon does not weaken latex condoms or affect the contraceptive pill in any way, but it’s immaterial because you should refrain from having sex while treating genital warts. Not only does the affected area need to heal, but it’s simply not worth the risk of viral transmission.
No. Even condoms are only around 70% effective at preventing the spread of HPV, plus you can infect someone from the skin around your genitals — a particularly significant risk when that skin is damaged. Even if your warts are gone, you may still be infected. Confirm that you are virus-free before you resume sexual activity.
No, drinking alcohol will not affect Warticon. Your immune system plays an important role in fighting the HPV infection, though, and excessive alcohol consumption can lower your immune system, making your genital warts much harder to eradicate.
If Warticon doesn't work, you can try other treatments such as Aldara, which contains Imiquimod and stimulates your immune system to help fight the HPV infection. Alternatively, your GP or local sexual health clinic can offer treatments such as cryotherapy (freezing) or excision (cutting the warts off) if necessary.
It’s possible to have multiple bouts of genital warts in your life, whether resulting from the same infection or multiple infections, so it’s essentially impossible to say that you’ll never get warts again. That said, if you complete your course of treatment and successfully deal with the HPV, you should be safe for the time being — and if warts do eventually reappear, you can of course use Warticon as an effective treatment once again.
Yes, Warticon should only be used to treat external genital warts, and is only licensed for that use. Furthermore, it should not be used to treat anal warts — Aldara cream is licensed for that issue and should be used instead. If you are suffering with internal genital warts, or anal warts, you’ll need a medical consultation to confirm the best treatment.
While it can cause some discomfort, Warticon should not make your warts worse. As it attacks the warts, they can start looking like blisters, but this is purely a visual resemblance and is no cause for concern. If you have any adverse swelling or suffer an unexpected skin reaction, inform your doctor immediately.
During the course of treatment, Warticon’s reaction with your warts may cause them to turn pale or even white before they peel away and leave healthy skin. This is no cause for concern.
No, Warticon is specifically designed to treat genital warts. There are other wart treatments designed for other areas of the body — a medical consultation can provide further information.
It can, but doesn’t always — it largely depends on the severity of the treated warts. If you treat very severe warts, you may be left with small white marks in the area following conclusion of your treatment, but rest assured that the scarring is much worse when warts are left untreated.
There is limited data to suggest that Warticon can be safely used while pregnant or breastfeeding, so we recommend that you do not use it in such circumstances.

No, verrucas and warts are entirely different types of skin growth. You’ll need to seek out a dedicated verruca treatment.
No. Additionally, this condition can usually be left to heal on its own. If it doesn’t, it’s best to consult a doctor to identify next steps.
If you’ve selected the Warticon solution, then yes — it is intended to be blue, and can thus cause some temporary staining in the treated skin. If you’ve selected the cream, then no — it is intended to be white, and leaves no staining once absorbed by the skin.
