PODOCON-25® IS TO BE APPLIED ONLY BY A PHYSICIAN. IT IS NOT TO BE DISPENSED TO THE PATIENT. SHAKE WELL. Thoroughly cleanse affected area. Use supplied applicator to apply Podocon-25® sparingly to lesion. Avoid contact with healthy tissue. Allow to dry thoroughly. Only intact (no bleeding) lesions should be treated. As podophyllin is a powerful caustic and severe irritant, it is recommended the first application of Podocon-25® be left in contact for only a short time (30-40 minutes) to determine patient’s sensitivity. To avoid systemic absorption, time of contact should be minimum time necessary to produce the desired result (1 to 4 hours, depending on condition of lesion and of patient), the physician developing his/her own experience and technique. Large areas or numerous warts should not be treated at once.

After treatment time has elapsed, remove dried Podocon-25® thoroughly with alcohol or soap and water.
