Canthacur Solution Description

If you are plagued by one or more warts that have not disappeared after 2 years, maybe it’s time to see your doctor. Common warts tend to appear on your hands, but they are not limited to a specific body part and can show up anywhere. Most will vanish within 6 months, but if after that time it is bothering you or has grown bigger, visit your doctor and treatment can be carried out right in the doctor’s office and you are on your way. Some stubborn warts may require more than 1 treatment.

A Chemical Reaction Helps to Get Rid of Your Wart

Canthacur Solution contains Cantharidin, a vesicant that is painless when applied directly to the wart and then bandaged. Due to the toxic potential of Cantharidin, treatment is administered only by a health professional. After Canthacur Solution is applied, a temporary bandage may be applied. When the bandage is removed several hours after Cantharidin has been applied, a blister will form as a result of a chemical reaction. Several days later, the blister will lift off and take the wart with it. No stitches, no skin glue, no burning, no scar. It’s important to take care of the treated area until completely healed to avoid a possible infection.

Warts and What Causes Them

Common warts are contagious and are passed on through direct skin-to-skin contact. If you have a scratch, cut, or abrasion, the virus can find its way into the outer layer of your skin where it causes an increase in the growth of cells and the wart is created. The virus that causes common warts is one of the many strains of the human papillomavirus, or HPV. Not all HPV infections are contracted through sexual contact, but they are contagious. People with compromised immune systems are more susceptible to the HPV virus.

Before Treatment With Canthacur Solution

Even though Canthacur Solution is only applied directly to the wart, tell your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have in case you may experience a reaction. List other Rx and OTC drugs you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and vitamin or dietary supplements. Take precautions if you have warts and do not share razors, towels, or other items that have come into contact with your warts.

Proper After-Care with Canthacur Solution Treatment

Keep the band-aid or dressing on the wart for at least 5 or 6 hours and do not touch the treated skin or it can cause burning to unaffected skin. After a blister has formed, let it dry and the lesion should fall off on its own. The entire process can take 4-7 days but you may need another round of Canthacur Solution if the wart is being difficult.

Possible Side Effects of Canthacur Solution

  • Pain from blister
  • Redness around the wart
  • Appearance of small satellite warts around the treated area
