Podofilox comes as a gel or solution that you put on your genital warts. It is sometimes called podophyllotoxin and its brand name is Condylox. It is also the most active of the ingredients found in another treatment called podophyllin.

Eight RCTs found that using podofilox for four months helped to get rid of genital warts. But up to a third of people got their warts back.

Continuing to use podofilox after it has gotten rid of your genital warts probably won’t stop them from coming back.

Six studies have also compared podofilox with podophyllin. Most of these studies found that the two treatments worked equally as well for clearing up warts and keeping them from coming back.

Podofilox can irritate and burn your skin, causing pain and itching.6 It can occasionally make the foreskin and head of the penis inflamed in men who aren’t circumcised.

You should not use podofilox if you’re pregnant.

  3. if you read the insert provided in the box, you will see that yes the podofilox can irritate your skin. it is also a week by week treatment. that being said, you are supposed to apply it twice a day for three days. then stop using it for the rest of the week (4 days). after the 7th day restart regiment. your skin will become red and irritated if you use too much around nonaffected areas. be sure to have the solution completely dry before you cover it up or it will cause further skin irritation.
