Condyline is a solution designed to be directly applied to genital warts. The treatment is produced by Japanese pharmaceutical company Takeda. It is applied twice a day to the affected area, for three consecutive days. Following a four day rest period, if warts are still present, this weekly cycle can be repeated for up to four weeks.

Genital warts are caused by a sexually transmitted virus, called HPV. They manifest in the form of small growths around the vagina, penis or anus. Genital warts are usually painless, but they can be unsightly and be a source of frustration for those experiencing them. They can also be transferred to other individuals through physical contact, such as via vaginal or anal sex.

Furthermore, as they are communicable through skin-to-skin contact, sex does not have to be penetrative for the person with them to infect someone else. Transmission can occur through touch, or by the use of sex toys.

HPV is not currently curable, but most people will find that their bodies will rid the infection naturally over a period of time. Treatment for genital warts is given in the form of antivirals.

Podophyllotoxin is one such medicine, and is the active component of Condyline solution. It can be found in the podophyllum plant, and tackles warts by breaching and breaking down the cells that cause them, and preventing their growth. These offending cells eventually perish, and fresh skin tissue develops in their place.

Please note that we do not sell Condyline medication from our online pharmacy. Should you require treatment for genital warts, please contact your doctor or attend a GUM clinic.

Active Ingredient

Podophyllotoxin is the functioning agent in Condyline, and has antiviral properties when used in medicine. It is traditionally found in the roots of the podophyllum plant, but can also be synthesised through the combination of certain alcoholic chemicals. It was first expounded in the 1930s, and has since been found to have various qualities, most recently as an anticarcinogen.

When applied to genital warts, podophyllotoxin works by infiltrating wart cells and preventing them from dividing and growing. After they are no longer able to progress, they die off, enabling healthy skin cells to develop in the space they previously occupied.
