What is the most important information I should know about podofilox topical (Condylox Topical)?
Do not use this medication on any warts or skin growths that have not been checked by your doctor.
Using more of this medication will not make it work better, and may increase side effects.
Avoid getting this medication in your eyes. If this does happen, rinse with water and call your doctor. Do not place the gel or solution in your rectum, vagina, or urethra. If it does get into any of these areas, rinse with water.
Avoid having unprotected sex. Podofilox is not a cure for genital warts, and it will not protect against sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, HIV, syphilis, and trichomoniasis. Talk with your doctor about safe ways to prevent transmission during sex.
Wash your hands before and after applying podofilox topical.
