Genital warts is a condition characterised by fleshy nodules around the vagina, penis or anus. They are caused by the human papillomavirus, more commonly known as HPV. This virus is a sexually transmitted illness, which can be passed from one person to another via various means: warts are most commonly passed on through skin-to-skin contact, which might be vaginal or anal sex; but they can also be spread through the use of sex toys.
According to Public Health England, there were over 62,000 new cases (1st episodes) diagnosed in England in 2016. Around 27,000 of these were female cases, and 35,000 were male cases.
The virus responsible can lie dormant for long periods and does not always produce symptoms right away. It is possible for someone to carry the infection but experience delayed symptoms, or none at all. So it is important if you suspect you have had sexual contact with someone who has genital warts to get tested.
While vaccinations are available, at present there is no cure for HPV. In most cases, the body will take care of the virus, clearing the infection inside two years or less.
Treatment for genital warts therefore targets and limits the function of the virus in the body. Warticon and Condyline contain a substance called podophyllotoxin, which works by stopping the replication of viral cells, which can cause warts. Once they are no longer able to reproduce, the cells die, and healthy tissue cells replace them.
Aldara works slightly differently, by triggering the release of certain chemicals in the skin which work as antibodies. This then mobilises the immune system to fight the virus, and symptoms are then reduced.
All of these products are designed to be applied directly to the area being affected. The user will usually begin to see improvements within days or weeks, depending on the specific treatment.
If you think you might have genital warts or are developing them for the first time, you should visit your GP or local sexual health clinic. It is important to see someone in person if you are having your first episode, so that a doctor can assess your symptoms and issue an appropriate medication.

Types of Treatment
As genital warts are caused by the human papillomavirus, treatment for the condition aims at reducing the activity of the virus in the body. This in turn decreases the presence of physical symptoms. Popular treatments for genital warts are applied creams or solutions such as Aldara, Condyline and Warticon.
How do they work?
HPV spreads in the body through the multiplication of cells. It is the presence of these infected cells that causes genital warts.
The main ingredient in Aldara is a chemical called imiquimod. This fights off genital warts by working as an immunomodulator, and boosting the body’s immune system to tackle viral cells.
2. Condyline and Warticon
These medicines work by preventing the growth of viral cells. They do not cure the virus responsible, but can provide relief from associated symptoms by suppressing it. Condyline and Warticon contain an ingredient called podophyllotoxin, which targets HPV and disables its ability to sustain these cells. The wart cells will then begin to die off, leading to a reduction in visible symptoms.
What are the side effects?
Side effects may vary according to each product. Possible side effects associated with Condyline and Warticon are irritation at the site of application, or inflammation of the foreskin in men. Aldara may cause dizziness, headaches, aching muscles and other side effects.
This is not a complete list. For more detailed information, please refer to the leaflets supplied.
Can I take them with other medications?
It depends on the other treatments you are taking. You should ensure that your prescriber knows about any other medications you are using or have recently used during consultation.
What’s the difference between the medications?
The main difference between these treatments is their active ingredients, and resultant mechanism of action. Condyline and Warticon contain podophyllotoxin, which works to stunt the development of viral cells; whereas Aldara contains imiquimod, a compound which supports the immune system to tackle infected cells.
Should I take Aldara, Condyline or Warticon?
That depends on which medicine you’ve used before, how successful that treatment was, and any conditions you may have which could make you more susceptible to side effects. If you aren’t sure, see your GP or visit your nearest sexual health clinic for guidance.
Are there different side effects?
Yes. You should read the leaflet supplied with your medicine thoroughly prior to first use, so that you can acquaint yourself with the possible side effects and get the necessary help required if you notice them.
Is it right for me?
If you haven’t used treatment for genital warts before or are having your first episode, talk to your GP. They will be able to assist you in selecting the most appropriate treatment, and initiate a prescription.
