What should I avoid while using podofilox topical (Condylox)?
Do not have sex on the days you apply podofilox topical.
Avoid getting this medication in your eyes. If this does happen, rinse with water and call your doctor. Do not place the gel or solution in your rectum, vagina, or urethra. If it does get into any of these areas, rinse with water.
Avoid having unprotected sex. Podofilox is not a cure for genital warts, and it will not protect against sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, HIV, syphilis, and trichomoniasis. Talk with your doctor about safe ways to prevent transmission during sex.
