How does Warticon work?
Warticon wart treatment burns away wart cells, getting rid of them individually rather than building up the body’s immunity to them. Used only for soft genital warts, Warticon normally takes a little over a month for treatment to be completed.
Aldara wart cream (containing imiquimod) is the only alternative treatment we offer through our website. It works for both soft and hard warts, as well as those around the anus.
Other stronger creams may contain the active ingredient trichloroacetic acid (TCA). This, however, can only be administered by a medical professional as it can cause physical damage and pain if incorrectly applied.
In some instances, having warts physically removed may be appropriate, either through excision, cryotherapy, electrosurgery or laser surgery.
