Effectiveness &/or side effects of Condylox?
How effective is the gel as a treatment? How common are the side effects? Has anyone here used Condylox in the past?
Asked by Cindi Gottsch 2 years ago.
♥ Condylox is a prescription medicine that comes in topical gel form. It is an external treatment to remove genital warts. This medication is intended to be used solely on the skin. In general, Condylox is applied twice daily. As with the majority of medications, there are possible side effects that could occur with the use of Condylox. .Common Side Effects There are a handful of common and usually minor side effects of Condylox Gel. These side effects usually subside rapidly. If you have any of these side effects, and they do not go away or if they intensify,consult your doctor. Minor side effects include stinging, inflammation, burning, redness and skin pain where the gel was applied, as well as headache. Serious Side Effects Serious side effects also can occur with taking Condylox and may require emergency medical attention. Potentially severe side effects include swelling, bleeding, extreme or extended pain, itching and burning where the medication was applied onto the skin. Allergic Reactions Serious allergic reactions to Condylox Gel are relatively uncommon. However, these allergic reactions can lead to dangerous consequences, so you need to get immediate medical help if you experience an allergic reaction. Signs to look for include tightness in chest, trouble with breathing, rash on the skin, breaking out into hives, itching and swelling of the tongue, lips, mouth or face. Warnings One of the ingredients of Condylox Gel is alcohol, so it is flammable. You should not use Condylox Gel while smoking or near an open flame or heat. Avoid sexual intercourse on the days this topical medication has been applied. Overdose If you have overdosed on this medication, you need to seek emergency medical assistance as soon as possible. Some signs of overdose of Condylox Gel include confusion, disorientation, diarrhea, throwing up, fever, tingling and numbness, nausea, loss of consciousness and seizures.

Condylox and Infertility..are these two related?
Hello Community, I was prescribed Aldara to initially treat my Genital warts. Aldara turned out to be a horrible medication that not only burned me but caused me the FLU, throbbing legs, muscle pain, vomiting, diarrhea...not to mention the lack of sleep and overall feeling of being sedated. AWFUL! I even asked...

Hello Community, I was prescribed Aldara to initially treat my Genital warts. Aldara turned out to be a horrible medication that not only burned me but caused me the FLU, throbbing legs, muscle pain, vomiting, diarrhea...not to mention the lack of sleep and overall feeling of being sedated. AWFUL! I even asked here for support since the med was driving me crazy. When I decided to stop the treatment on my own after reading a crazy amount of websites and lawsuits against the medication, my doctor (which has been incredibly slooooow) decided to prescribe Condylox. He asked me "not to do research" because it was "driving me crazy". I certainly did and got even more terrified. Have anyone heard if Condylox is related to infertility of if it will cause any problems for a woman (30 years old) who's trying to get pregnant or at least planning a pregnancy by the end of this year or the next? Any help is greatly appreciated. I think I have gone from the initial stage (last year) to the 'I'm extremely frustrated and angry' stage. Doctors are really not helping :-( . Have a great and healthy day! Thank you all. Answered by Almeda Virag 2 years ago.
Aldara doesn't cause flu but it can cause upper respiratory tract infection, sinusitis, headache, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue and a whole lot of other adverse reactions. I expect this information was included in the hand out that accompanied your prescription and certainly should have been discussed with your by your prescriber. Condylox isn't associated with infertility. The most common adverse reaction is headache. It's a topical medication and doesn't interact with the ovaries or Fallopian tubes. HPV itself doesn't cause infertility. As for the admonition from your doctor "not to do research because it was driving [you] crazy", I think this could have been handled differently. You have the right to research anything you choose but should you come across disturbing information, by all means you should consult your doctor for further explanation. Some things may not apply to you or may be rare reactions. You should know this, you should be told. Answered by Gerald Doubrava 2 years ago.
Your doctor probably told you to "not do the research" because their is a lot of information on the internet about medicine, much of it bogus. Even if you know enough to screen ot the bogus information, you will read about a lot of very scary side effects that happen in like one out of a thousand people. If you are scared by medicines for genital warts, you could just quit taking medicine. In many people genital warts are mild, or go away on their own. The only way to find a drug that does not do something horrible to at least some people is to find one that is insufficiently researched. FYI, DON't assume herbs or "natural" medicines don't have side effects. Answered by Elinore Dibrito 2 years ago.

What effect does Condylox have on penile papules?
I have these small bumps (4) right under the head of my penis, somewhat along the frenum. They are white, and do not seem to have a dimple in them. They don't itch. I went to a dermatologist, and he said they were probably molluscum contagiousum. Granted I'm not a doctor, but they really look like...

I have these small bumps (4) right under the head of my penis, somewhat along the frenum. They are white, and do not seem to have a dimple in them. They don't itch. I went to a dermatologist, and he said they were probably molluscum contagiousum. Granted I'm not a doctor, but they really look like pearly penile papules. He prescribed me Condylox, and I'm just wondering, if these are indeed pearly penile papules and I use the Condylox, can I do any damage? What are the risks of using Condylox in general? Are there any long term risks? Thanks Answered by Stefani Maccallum 2 years ago.
Molluscum will generally spread so if these have been very stable, they are more likely to be pearly penile papules. The condylox won't hurt normal skin. You could also wait it out and see if they spread before trying the condylox. You could also ask for a biopsy of the lesions. Answered by Etha Osgood 2 years ago.
