If there is more than one wart on a finger or toe, only treat one wart at a time. If there are warts that are closer than 1 inch apart on other areas of the body, do not treat them at the same time. Freezing warts that are too close together at the same time could lead to over-freezing of the area and may cause significant discomfort, take longer to heal, or the area may not heal properly. Treat each remaining wart separately, with a two-week period between treatments. In many cases, only one treatment is needed for each wart. Warts are usually gone in two weeks after treatment with Compound W Freeze Off®. If a wart or part of it is still there two weeks after treatment, you may then safely treat it again. Do not treat each wart with Compound W Freeze Off® more than three times in total. Consult your doctor if three treatments have not led to improvement. The aching/stinging feeling in treated common warts should disappear within a few hours after application. For plantar warts, the aching/stinging feeling may last 24 hours. If discomfort or aching/stinging feeling continues beyond these times, 3 hours for common warts and 24 hours for plantar warts, talk to your doctor. This may mean that the area has been frozen too deeply and medical attention may be needed. Do not inhale vapor/spray and use only in well-ventilated areas because it is uncertain how the vapor/spray will affect the lungs. Breathing vapor/spray may be toxic. Wash hands (except treated area) immediately after use. Washing the treated area immediately may be uncomfortable since you may still be experiencing some aching/stinging.

Background on Warts: Warts are growths on the skin or mucus membranes (such as inside mouth, nose, anus, genitals, lips) that are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). There are more than 80 different types of HPV. Many are attracted to the skin where they cause different skin-related warts including plantar warts and common warts. Others are attracted to the mucus membranes where they can cause warts on the genitals or anus. Skin-related warts such as common warts and plantar warts are generally harmless. However, genital warts have been linked to cancer in the cervix. Warts affect 7 to 10% of the general population. They are most common in children and adolescents. Warts are very contagious and may appear more often if the body's defense system is weak. Warts are passed from person to person or from one body location to another on the same person by touch or contact with the flakes of skin. More than 50% of warts disappear within two years with no treatment. However, they are unsightly and can cause pain in the case of plantar warts. Therefore, patients often choose to treat warts rather than wait for them to disappear. Treatments for warts include different topical acid preparations, surgical removal, burning or cryotherapy (freezing). Duct tape has also recently been reported in the news to be effective. Liquid nitrogen is the most commonly applied freezing method, but it is only available through a physician. Compound W Freeze Off® wart removal system is an alternative to liquid nitrogen. It contains dimethyl ether and propane (DMEP) and is as effective and well tolerated as liquid nitrogen. C. What is Compound W Freeze Off® wart removal system used for? Compound W Freeze Off® wart removal system is used for the removal of common warts as well as the removal of plantar warts on the bottom of the foot. Common warts and plantar warts are harmless growths that consist of a center of inner skin (or connective tissue) with blood vessels covered with layers of outer skin (or epidermis tissue). Common warts are skin-colored, usually appear on the hands and feet and are easily recognized by the rough "cauliflower-like" appearance of the surface. Plantar warts only occur on the bottom of the foot and are often flat due to the pressure caused by walking. Plantar warts grow inward, are often calloused, and can be very painful. The footprint pattern is smooth over the area where the plantar wart occurs because "skin lines" do not grow across the surface of plantar warts. G. How does Compound W Freeze Off® work? 1. Compound W Freeze Off® freezes warts on the spot. The freezing kills both the virus and the infected skin. When the foam applicator is pressed on the wart, freezing begins within a few seconds and the skin will turn white. A slight aching, itching and/or stinging feeling will occur as a result of the freezing. After the foam applicator is removed, color will return and the aching, itching, stinging feeling will quickly decrease, disappearing within a few hours. 2. After the area thaws and color returns, a redness that is the same size as the frozen region may appear. As a result of freezing, a blister may form (sometimes filled with blood) under the wart within a few days. You may not see this easily. 3. The frozen skin with the treated wart will fall off after about 10-14 days. In the meantime, new skin will have formed under the blister.
