What is Wartner Cryotherapy Wart & Verruca Remover?
Wartner Cryotherapy Wart & Verruca Remover is a form of treatment that works by freezing the wart or verruca. It works by freezing the wart to the core. Wartner utilises the same method of cryotherapy as doctors. Wartner contains dimethyl ether and propane.
How does cryotherapy work?
Cryotherapy is a form of treatment involves freezing, in many cases, using liquid nitrogen. This destroys the wart and the affected skin cells. Cryotherapy can be painful, and some large warts may require multiple treatments to remove completely. Cryotherapy should not be used by small children because of the pain it may cause. Cryotherapy may be recommended for treating warts on the face as the risk of irritation is lower.
Who is this Wartner treatment suitable for?
Wartner Cryotherapy Wart & Verruca Remover is suitable for adults and children aged 4 and over. It should only be applied by adults. Do not use if you are diabetic as the skin may not heal as quickly. Anyone who is known to have poor blood circulation should speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using. There are several different skin problems it should not be used on, including:
- Irritated skin
- Broken skin
- Hairy warts
- Genital warts
Speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist for advice on treating any of the above.
Can someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding use Wartner?
Anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding and is looking for treatment for a wart or verruca should not use Wartner. Instead, they should consult a medical professional for advice.
How should Wartner Cryotherapy Wart & Verruca Remover be used?
To use Wartner, hold the blue end of the foam applicator until a small opening appears by squeezing. Slide the opening onto the stick of the applicator holder until it is no longer visible. While holding the can upright, place the applicator on top so that the foam is no longer visible. Firmly press down on the applicator for a few seconds until you hear a hissing sound. Wait for 20 seconds and then apply the foam applicator onto the wart. For warts, use for 20 seconds and verrucas use for 40 seconds. Apply a plaster after using Wartner if necessary.
