Yes, it is safe to apply. You can apply Vaseline around the wart before applying podophyllin to prevent burning and irritation of the skin. It can take up to two to three weeks before it will disappear. Your sexual partner will also have to be treated. Due to the presence of the warts around the vagina, you will have to have a papsmear done, to exclude the formation of warts on the cervix, which can in turn lead to cancer of the cervix.
