Keratolytic Wart Removal (Aftercare Instructions) Care Guide

Keratolytic wart removal is a procedure that uses acid medicine to thin and remove your wart. The medicine causes the outer layer of the skin to loosen and shed. The medicine may be a liquid, gel, or plaster patch.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Follow up with your primary healthcare provider as directed:

Write down your questions so you remember to ask them during your visits.

Continue treatment at home:

Use home treatments as directed. Keep your wart and skin clean and dry between treatments.

  • Soak your wart in warm water for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Dry the soaked area.
  • Use a pumice stone, sandpaper, or a nail file to remove the rough areas around your wart. This will help thin your skin so the keratolytic medicine will soak in better.
  • Put the medicine on your wart and let it dry. If you are using a plaster patch, cut the patch to the size of your wart and stick it on. Make sure not to place any medicine on your surrounding skin.
  • Cover your wart or plaster patch with a bandage or duct tape. Make sure the area where you applied the medicine is completely covered.
  • If you are using a plaster patch, change it every 24 to 48 hours.
  • Repeat the steps every 1 to 2 days or as directed. Continue treatment until your wart is gone.

Prevent another wart:

  • Wash your hands: Wash your hands before and after you touch your wart.
  • Avoid direct contact with warts: Do not scratch or pick at your wart. Do not touch someone else's wart.
  • Do not walk barefoot in public places: Wear shower shoes or sandals in warm, damp areas. This includes shower stalls, swimming pool areas, and locker rooms.
  • Keep your feet clean and dry: Use foot powder between your toes and on your feet after you wash and dry them. Change socks often to avoid damp feet. If your shoes are damp from sweat, set them in a place where they can dry out before you wear them again.
  • Do not share or reuse items: Examples include nail files, pumice stones, socks, or towels. Clean these items with soapy hot water before you use them again.

Contact your primary healthcare provider if:

  • You have a fever.
  • Your wart does not go away completely or it returns.
  • Your wart grows larger or begins to spread or cluster.
  • Your wound is red, swollen, or draining pus.
  • You have questions or concerns about your condition or care.

Return to the emergency department if:

  • Blood soaks through your bandage.
  • You have pain or swelling that gets worse or does not go away.
  • You get any wart medicine on your lips or in your mouth.

The skinny, pic to come

Anal warts (also called "condyloma acuminata") are a relatively common and bothersome condition that affects the area around the anus. They may also affect the skin of the genital area. They first appear as tiny blemishes, perhaps as small as the head of a pin, and may grow larger than the size of a pea. Usually, they do not cause pain or discomfort to afflicted individuals. As a result, patients may be unaware that the warts are present.
Where do these warts come from?
They are thought to be caused by the human papilloma virus which is relatively contagious. The virus can be transmitted from person to person, almost always by direct contact
