Wartner uses a mixture of dimethyl ether (DME) and propane, which freezes warts at a temperature of -57°C.
It works by freezing the core of the wart, which is caused by the contagious human papilloma virus (HPV). This freezing causes it to fall off in 10 to 14 days, by which time healthy skin will have formed beneath.
Should only be used on common or plantar warts. Consult your doctor before use if you are diabetic, pregnant, or if the wart is located on a sensitive area (e.g. the face, neck, armpits).
50mL total, and includes 12 foam applicators for 10 treatments.
Dimethylether and Propane.
Just one 20 second treatment is usually sufficient.
Two or three applications are recommended for stubborn or more persistent warts and verrucas. Allow 15 days between treatments.
Keep the treated area clean. Swimming and showering are permitted. Do not pick at or scratch the treated area. Protect blisters, if necessary with a plaster – do not puncture blisters.
Consult a physician if the aching, stinging sensation persists or if another complication occurs.
