    Uses

    Podofilox solution is used to treat warts on the outside of the genitals. It stops the growth of the wart and the wart eventually falls off. Podofilox belongs to a group of drugs called antimitotics.

    Other Uses

    This section contains uses of this drug that are not listed in the approved professional labeling for the drug but that may be prescribed by your health care professional. Use this drug for a condition that is listed in this section only if it has been so prescribed by your health care professional.

    This medication may also be used to treat a skin infection called molluscum contagiosum.

    How to Use This Medication

    Read the Patient Information Leaflet available from your pharmacist before you start using podofilox solution and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

    This medication is for use on the skin only. Only apply this medication to the genital warts that your doctor has identified for you. Do not use this medication on warts around the anus or on the mucous membranes (such as in the urethra, rectum, and vagina), inside your body, or on any other skin growths.

    Use this medication usually twice daily (once in the morning and once in the evening, every 12 hours), for 3 days in a row, followed by no treatment for the next 4 days. If the warts do not go away, you may repeat this 7-day cycle up to a total of 4 treatment weeks in a row. Follow your doctor's directions exactly.

    First wash the area to be treated with soap and water, and dry thoroughly. Use an applicator that comes with this product, dip it into the solution just enough to wet it, but not so much that solution is dripping from the tip. Apply this medication only to the warts your doctor has directed you to treat. Do not apply it to the area surrounding the warts. It may help to use a hand mirror.

    For warts within skin folds, pull the skin fold open and apply the medication. Let the medication dry before allowing the skin folds around the warts to return to their normal position.

    Only use the applicator once. Do not dip it into the solution again. Throw it away in a safe place after use. Wash your hands with soap and water after each application.

    Do not cover the treated area with bandages or other waterproof dressings. Covering the area with cotton gauze, or cotton underwear for the genital area, is permitted.

    Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use a calendar to mark the days you will be applying the medication each week.

    Avoid getting this medication in the eyes/nose/mouth, on healthy skin, or on other areas as mentioned above. If the medication gets on healthy skin, wipe it off immediately and wash the area thoroughly with soap and water and rinse off. If the medication gets in your eyes, nose, or mouth, flush the area with plenty of water for 15 minutes and contact your doctor.

    Do not apply a large amount of this medication or apply it to a large area. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details. Do not use it more often or for longer than prescribed. Your condition will not improve any faster, and your risk of side effects will increase.

    Tell your doctor if your condition persists after 4 weeks of treatment, or if it worsens, or if new growths appear during treatment. Genital warts often return after treatment.
