Genital warts are the small fleshy growths, bumps or changes to the skin which can be found on the genital or anal area. They are very common and the result of a viral skin infection caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). They do not pose a serious risk to health and are usually painless although they may look distressing.
Warticon is a treatment for genital herpes which contains podophyllotoxin, which belongs to a group of medicines known as antivirals. It is used on warts on the penis for men and external warts on women.
