Frequently Asked Questions

How does Wartie work?

Wartie precisely freezes the wart or verruca to the core, due to its unique precision tip, resulting in the removal of the wart. The shape of the Wartie precision metal tip allows accurate application limited to the wart or plantar wart (verruca), avoiding the surrounding healthy skin, resulting in a more pain-free application.

What does Wartie contain?

Dimethyl Ether (DME), a gas which, when released, cools the metal tip of Wartie.

Is Wartie safe for children?

Wartie Wart & Verruca remover is safe for children aged 4+

Wartie Advanced is suitable for children aged 12+.

Because Wartie delivers the cold through a precision metal tip, the freezing power can be controlled by the amount of pressure exerted on the can during application: More pressure means that a greater part of the metal tip touches the skin, resulting in a larger freezing area. With light pressure, the contact is minimized, thereby being able to treat smaller warts and verrucas with the same precision, comfort and safety.

My wart or verruca does not fall of after one treatment. What should I do?

In some cases, it may help to soak the wart in warm water for a few minutes before using Wartie, in order to help penetrate callused skin that has formed on top of it.

Treat each remaining wart separately, with a minimum two-week period between treatments.

Alternatively use Wartie Advanced to treat stubborn/ mature warts.

I have used Wartie. How long does it take before my wart or verruca falls off?

The wart or verruca will gradually disappear or fall off over the next 10 to 14 days after the application, revealing healthy new skin underneath.

Another application – if necessary – should not be done within 14 days after the first application.
