What is Wartie Advanced Cryotherapy Wart and Verruca Remover?
Wartie Advanced Cryotherapy Wart and Verruca Remover is a treatment that will remove warts and verrucas through cryotherapy. Cryotherapy works by basically freezing the wart to its core, cooling the wart to sub-zero temperatures. This is done by only applying the solution in this treatment to the wart, and not the surrounding skin, leaving it healthy. Wartie Advanced Wart and Verruca Remover are suitable to be used on warts that are located on the hands, knees, elbows, and fingers, as well as verrucas on the feet.
What is the cause of a wart or verruca?
Warts and verrucas are caused by a virus known as the human papillomavirus (HPV). This virus infects the skin that lines the inside of the body, causing the skin to thicken and harden. There are over 100 types of this virus and any of them can spread through contact with someone who is infected, or in surfaces that have been touched by someone who is infected. In rare cases, HPV can cause cancer in areas where contact was made, such as in sexual contact.
Who is this Wartie treatment suitable for?
Wartie Advanced is suitable to be used by adults and children aged 12 and over looking for an effective treatment for treating warts and verrucas. It should not be used by anyone who is sensitive to the ingredients contained in the treatment, is diabetic, or has poor circulation in the body. If you are using any other form of medical treatment, then speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using.
Can someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding use this treatment?
Anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding should consult a medical professional for advice before using any form of treatment.
How should Wartie Advanced Cryotherapy Wart and Verruca Remover be used?
For common warts, apply a single drop of gel onto the wart. Ensure that the gel does not get onto healthy skin. To do this, prepare the treatment by placing the can on a flat surface and twist the cone counter-clockwise and hold it down for a few seconds before you hear a hissing sound. The cone should twist back which locks the system in place. Wait for 2 seconds and then apply to the wart for 20 seconds. For a verruca, apply for 40 seconds after preparing. In the case of sensitive skin, a foam plaster may be advisable to apply after using. When not using, ensure that the treatment is kept below 50°C and away from any flames.
Are there any side effects?
You may experience skin stinging when applying if it gets onto healthy skin. There may also be an allergic reaction caused by an allergic reaction. If you notice an allergic reaction, stop using and speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist as soon as possible.
Everything You Need to Know About Warts and Verrucas
If you have lumps on the skin, in particular, on the hands or the feet, then the chances are that you have a wart. Warts can also appear on the soles of the feet where they are known as a verruca. But what is a wart? And what causes them to appear? If you are wondering about either of those things or anything else about warts and verrucas, then you have come to the right place.
Can I use Wartner Cryotherapy on warts on my inner thighs?
Best for warts on hands also safe for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Cryotherapy has been used for several years and it used to freeze the wart. OTC products, marketed as home cryotherapy treatments, are available for home use. Hence, they are less effective than liquid nitrogen, which is usually left for the GP rather than the patient due to the destructive action on the skin.
Suitable for adults and children four years old and over. The wart normally falls off about 10 days after application.
