WARTEC SOLUTION (PODOPHYLLUM)

Wartec Solution Description

Wartec Solution is a strong agent called a vesicant that a doctor may prescribe for removing genital warts found on the outer skin of a male’s penis or woman’s vagina and the area between the anus and genitalia. Most of these warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) and are transmitted through sexual contact with an infected person. Unless these warts are treated, they can multiply quickly and can infect your partner, who should also seek medical treatment.

How Wartec Solution Blocks Abnormal Cell Growth

Once applied topically as directed by your physician, Podophyllum, the active ingredient in Wartec Solution, starts to work by stimulating your immune system and binding to the immune cells found in your skin. This action triggers the release of alpha interferon, a cytokine that acts as a hormone, which blocks the growth of the abnormal cells.

Interferon is made by blood cells as a response to infection or cancer in your body. In 24 to 48 hours the tissue of the wart dies and it will slough off and disappear gradually soon after. There is no cure for HPV; it is in your body forever, but Wartec Solution can help to get rid of the warts and relieve the pain and discomfort they can cause.

Conditions Treated with Wartec Solution

Genital warts are a sexually transmitted infection caused by certain strains of HPV. These soft growths can appear on the penis, scrotum, groin, thighs, and inside or around the anus of males or a female’s cervix and the inside or outside of the vagina or rectum. Some individuals are not even aware they have genital warts until symptoms of itching, bleeding, burning, or vaginal discharge appear. Certain strains of HPV can also cause cervical, vulva, penile, and anal cancer. Your doctor will be able to test for the particular HPV strain you have and treat accordingly.

There is a vaccine available to prevent the more common strains of HPV that can cause genital warts and strains of HPV that can cause cervical cancer. It has been recommended that boys and girls be vaccinated between 11 and 12 years of age and up age 26, preferably before becoming sexually active.

Before You Apply Wartec Solution

Make sure you have been shown or instructed thoroughly on the proper application of Wartec Solution. If you have not applied it exactly how you were told to, healthy skin can become damaged. Avoid contact with mucous membranes and especially your eyes.

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding so it can be determined whether Wartec Solution is safe for you to apply. Explain other medical conditions you have to your doctor and list all OTC and Rx medication you are taking, including herbal remedies and vitamin supplements to be certain there will not be adverse effects with using Wartec Solution at the same time.

Precautions for Wartec Solution

Genital warts are contagious whether you can see them or not so annual exams are important. Keep Wartec Solution out of children’s reach! Avoid sexual intercourse on the days you are applying Wartec Solution. Educate yourself on the best ways to prevent transmitting HPV to your partner and how to protect yourself from genital warts.

  • Dryness or peeling of treated skin
