Veregen Dosage

When treating external genital or perianal warts, Veregen dosing guidelines are the same for everyone -- apply the ointment on the warts three times daily. This product is used until the warts are gone, up to 16 weeks. Make sure to wash your hands before and after applying the ointment, and wash the medicine off before having sexual intercourse.

 

An Introduction to Dosing With Veregen

There is only one standard dose for Veregen® (sinecatechins), regardless of your weight or the severity of your condition. As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.  
 

What Is the Recommended Veregen Dosage for Genital or Perianal Warts?

The standard dosage of Veregen for treating external genital warts or external perianal warts is three applications a day until the warts are gone (up to a maximum of 16 weeks). A thin strand about half a centimeter long should be applied to each wart. Carefully dab the medication to completely cover each wart, leaving a thin layer on the warts. There is no need to wash off previous layers of medication before applying more.
 
Avoid applying Veregen to the eyes, inside the vagina, or inside the anus. Extreme irritation would likely occur. Uncircumcised males treating warts under the foreskin need to carefully retract the foreskin and gently clean the area every day to prevent phimosis (the inability to retract the foreskin). Also, avoid exposure of the treated area to ultraviolet (UV) light, as it is unknown how this may affect the skin being treated.
