The Wartner Verucca and Wart pen offers an effective solution for the treatment of warts and verrucas. The pen applicator contains a new highly concentrated wart & verruca removal gel based on the traditional acid method. The gel promotes skin cell regeneration which causes the skin to peel. As this occurs, the new healthy skin forms and the wart (or verruca) will shrink and disappear.
Directions for use:
STEP 1. Hold the pen vertically with the transparent tip facing downwards. Slowly click the dial on the top of the pen clockwise.
STEP 2. Allow the gel to flow into the transparent tip until the first drop is visible.
STEP 3. Carefully apply the dispensed drop of gel strictly to the top of the wart or verruca (do not touch healthy skin surrounding it). Make sure the entire surface of the wart is covered by a thin layer of gel. Depending on the size of the wart one or more drops might be needed.
STEP 4. Let the gel dry for 10-15 minutes before putting on clothes or shoes. Repeat twice daily for 4 days.
The TCA gel inside the pen is highly concentrated so careful application is needed. It is very important not to touch the healthy skin surrounding the wart. If the gel makes contact with healthy skin, clean the area with lots of water and soap. To be used on hands and feet only.
After this treatment of 4 days, the skin will peel off over the next 4 days. You can carefully remove the peeling skin under lukewarm water. After the treatment, new skin (free from warts & verrucas) will form. If the wart does not disappear completely, repeat the treatment after a break of 4 days.
You can repeat this treatment schedule up to 4 times. The wart may start to disappear as from the first week of treatment. After a few days of treatment, the wart surface might turn dark. This is a normal episode in the healing process. It can take several weeks before the skin is healed completely.
If the wart (or verruca) is small (size of a needle point), only apply a small drop strictly to the top of the wart once a day.
In the case of verrucas covered by callus, it is advisable to first soak the foot in warm water and rub the callus carefully with a file prior to the treatment. As some discomfort could be experienced in case of pressure or friction, a comfort plaster (widely available for purchase) may be used to protect the sensitive area.
