Painting penile warts


Increasing numbers of patients with anogenital warts are attending genitourinary medicine clinics.1 Since such warts often occur concurrently with other sexually transmitted diseases management should always include screening for these2 and treatment is therefore best started in an STD clinic. Conventional treatments of warts demand much clinic time, since patients cannot treat themselves. Podophyllotoxin 0.5% (Condyline, Warticon) is a new preparation for the self treatment of penile warts. It is dearer than the traditional podophyllin solution, but this might be offset by increased efficacy and by savings from reduced clinic attendance.
