What happens if I use podofilox longer than recommend?

What happens if I use podofilox longer than recommend?

Podofilox overusage: It's not a good idea to over use a product like this-you might experience increased local and possibly systemic side-effects from absorption. Besides, with the treatment of warts, you need to let the immune system 'do its thing'. You don't want to damage skin/create toxicity beyond what the medication will initially help with.

Venereal warts?: I am assuming from your question that you have Condylomata (Venereal warts) of the vulva and have not been able to get rid of them.

Genital warts: There is no single effective cure for removal of genital warts.

What's the success rate for podofilox? Does it target the cosmetic effects or the actual hpv virus?

Around 70-80%: Aside from surgery or cautery, all treatments are around 70-80% effective: podofilox, sinecatechins, freezing, trichloroacetic acid, imiquimod. For any of these, switch to another if the first isn't very effective. Combination treatment often is best, e.g. freezing plus podofilox. None target HPV itself, but wart removal reduces HPV load and may speed clearance by the immune system. ...Read more
