Salicylic acid Wart Remover Directions

Frostbite following use of a commercially available cryotherapy

Proper Use

It is very important that you use this medicine only as directed. Do not use more of it, do not use it more often, and do not use it for a longer time than recommended on the label, unless otherwise directed by your doctor. To do so may increase the chance of absorption through the skin and the chance of salicylic acid poisoning.

If your doctor has ordered an occlusive dressing (airtight covering, such as kitchen plastic wrap) to be applied over this medicine, make sure you know how to apply it. Since an occlusive dressing will increase the amount of medicine absorbed through your skin and the possibility of salicylic acid poisoning, use it only as directed. If you have any questions about this, check with your doctor.

Keep this medicine away from the eyes and other mucous membranes, such as the mouth and inside of the nose. If you should accidentally get some in your eyes or on other mucous membranes, immediately flush them with water for 15 minutes.

To use the cream, lotion, or ointment form of salicylic acid:

  • Apply enough medicine to cover the affected area, and rub in gently.

To use the gel form of salicylic acid:

  • Before using salicylic acid gel, apply wet packs to the affected areas for at least 5 minutes. If you have any questions about this, check with your health care professional.
  • Apply enough gel to cover the affected areas, and rub in gently.

To use the pad form of salicylic acid:

  • Wipe the pad over the affected areas.
  • Do not rinse off medicine after treatment.

To use the plaster form of salicylic acid for warts, corns, or calluses:

  • This medicine comes with patient instructions. Read them carefully before using.
  • Do not use this medicine on irritated skin or on any area that is infected or reddened. Also, do not use this medicine if you are a diabetic or if you have poor blood circulation.
  • Do not use this medicine on warts with hair growing from them or on warts on the face, in or on the genital (sex) organs, or inside the nose or mouth. Also do not use on moles or birthmarks. To do so may cause severe irritation.
  • Wash the area to be treated and dry thoroughly. Warts may be soaked in warm water for 5 minutes before drying.
  • Cut the plaster to fit the wart, corn, or callus and apply.
  • For corns and calluses:
  • Repeat every 48 hours as needed for up to 14 days, or as directed by your doctor, until the corn or callus is removed.
  • Corns or calluses may be soaked in warm water for 5 minutes to help in their removal.
  • For warts:
      Depending on the product, either:
        Apply plaster and repeat every 48 hours as needed, or
          Apply plaster at bedtime, leave in place for at least 8 hours, remove plaster in the morning, and repeat every 24 hours as needed.
        • Repeat for up to 12 weeks as needed, or as directed by your doctor, until wart is removed.
        • If discomfort gets worse during treatment or continues after treatment, or if the wart spreads, check with your doctor.
        • To use the shampoo form of salicylic acid:

          • Before applying this medicine, wet the hair and scalp with lukewarm water. Apply enough medicine to work up a lather and rub well into the scalp for 2 or 3 minutes, then rinse. Apply the medicine again and rinse thoroughly.
