* VEREGEN® was studied in 2 clinical trials in which patients with EGW applied either VEREGEN® or a treatment without drug called a “placebo.” Patients applied VEREGEN® to EGW 3 times a day for up to 16 weeks or until all warts were gone. VEREGEN® is not a cure for EGW. New warts may develop during or after the use of VEREGEN® that may need treatment.
VEREGEN® Works Best if You Use It Correctly

Use VEREGEN® only on the affected area, exactly as your doctor tells you.

  • You do not have to wash the ointment off once you apply it. If you wash the treatment area or bathe, reapply VEREGEN® after drying off
  • Use VEREGEN® until all warts have completely cleared, but for no longer than 16 weeks

Possible Side Effects

  • Very few people stopped using VEREGEN® because of side effects. If you experience severe side effects with VEREGEN®, stop treatment and call your doctor right away
  • The most common side effects were local skin and application site reactions, including redness, swelling, sores or blisters, burning, itching, and pain

You Can Still Have Sex While Using VEREGEN®

  • You may have protected sex using a condom for vaginal, anal, and oral sex, but you must first wash VEREGEN® off with soap and warm water
  • Don't have sex when VEREGEN® is on your skin because it may weaken condoms and vaginal diaphragms
  • Try not to have sex if you have visible EGW in places condoms can't cover
  • After sex, wash your hands before using VEREGEN® again
