Podocon-25 Side Effects Center
Medical Editor: John P. Cunha, DO, FACOEP
Podocon-25 (25% podophyllin in benzoin tincture) is used to treat genital warts on the outside of the penis or vagina, or on the skin between the rectum and the genitals. It is a skin medication made from a powdered mixture of extracts from a plant called Mandrake, or May apple. This medication may be available in generic form. Common side effects include mild bloating, constipation, or slight stinging or pain where the medicine was applied.
Podocon-25 resin is applied only by a physician, who will apply the proper dose to the affected area. It is not likely other drugs you take orally or inject will have an effect on topically applied Podocon-25 resin. But many drugs can interact with each other. Tell your doctor all prescription and over-the-counter medications and supplements you use. Podocon-25 is not recommended for use during pregnancy. It can cause birth defects. Do not use this drug if you are pregnant. Tell your doctor if you become pregnant during treatment. Use birth control while using this medication. It is unknown if this medication passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. Do not use this medication if you are breast-feeding.
