Most pharmacy stores don’t have podophyllin in stock. Very few have have it. Out of the 20 pharmacy stores I telephone in order to ask if they have the drug, only 4 pharmacy stores in Lagos, Abuja, Benin (Sapele road), and Port Harcourt had it in stock. It is a scarce but very important drug.

I will advise you first check your nearest drugstore before going far to look for it. Your nearest drug store can also help you make an order for podophyllin. More so, your doctor can also help you make an order because she may know some big pharmacies/pharmacists that have the drug.

how to apply podophyllin

Podophyllin must not be taken orally. It is applied only on the skin-external genital warts. Apply twice daily for 3 days, followed by 4 days rest, for up to 4 weeks. Rub vaseline or petroleum jelly at the base of warts before rubbing the cream to avoid burns to healthy skin. Then wash off with spirit after 3-4 hours. Do not apply podophyllin to an ulcerated(open) wart or bleeding wart. The drug is contra-indicated in pregnancy.
