These forms are very easy to use. With the tip of a pencil, pen, felt-tip pen, we touch the formation that needs to be eliminated. The skin to be treated must be clean and dry. It is recommended to steam the plantar warts before treatment. It is advisable not to touch healthy skin, therefore, when treating a large wart, it is recommended to lubricate the surrounding skin with a fat cream.
Before applying, the tip of a pencil is moistened with water and, without pressing with force, a dot is placed on the surface of the wart. The treatment is done once or twice a day until the complete disappearance of the skin growth.
In the course of processing, dark spots on the skin may remain from the pencil. Many people ask: How to wash a pencil? Experienced users claim that stains are washed off with a soapy sponge under running water. At least over time, they disappear on their own. If you use the product according to the instructions (not on the face), then these spots can be tolerated on the hands and feet for a while. Moreover, the warts are not too large, and with targeted application, the spots are not particularly noticeable.
The SuperCleaner felt-tip pen is turned upside down and shaken 2-3 times. The cap is removed and the growths to be removed are treated with a rod. It is necessary to process until the formation darkens. On the third or fifth day, skin cleansing begins, you can help this process with tweezers (without fanaticism). If the wart is large and has not completely disappeared, you can repeat the process. In case of contact with healthy skin, rinse it with a strong stream of water and apply citric acid to neutralize the alkali. Eye contact is fraught with blindness!
The first time, the Wartner cap of the wart removal pen will need to be twisted several times until the first bead of gel appears. It is gently applied to the surface of the wart in a thin layer. The gel should dry out, for this you need to sit quietly for about a quarter of an hour, doing nothing. Then you can go about your business. The wart is treated twice, for example, in the morning and in the evening, for four days. When the exfoliation process begins, you can help it by peeling off the raised layers of skin with tweezers or by removing them under running water. It takes another four days. If the wart was large, part of it may remain. The processing process can be repeated, but no more than four times. Small formations are processed sighting once a day. A burning sensation may be felt. Darkening of the formation during processing reflects the natural course of necrosis. If it comes into contact with healthy skin, wash it well with soap and water.
Cryo-pencil for warts from Cryopharm needs to be prepared for work. To do this, first connect the disposable sponge applicator with the holder, and then insert the holder into the spray can for three seconds, remove and put the white tip of the applicator on the neoplasm on:
- 10 seconds if the diameter of the wart is less than 2.5mm;
- 15 seconds, its size is from 2.5 to 5mm;
- 20 seconds - more than 5mm;
- 40 seconds - plantar warts of any size.
Freezing occurs immediately when the wart touches the spongy shaft of the applicator. Tingling or burning sensation may be felt during treatment. During the freezing process, the fabric turns white. Then its color is restored. The reddish tint of the treated wart and the small blister underneath are part of a natural process. The frostbite skin area should fall off after a decade or two. All this time you do not need to do anything. If the wart is not completely removed, the treatment can be repeated. The sponge applicator is discarded after one use. The package is designed for 12 processing procedures. In most cases, a one-time treatment is sufficient. To eliminate chronic and plantar formations, two or three treatments may be required. If there is no improvement after this cycle, see your doctor.
Application for children
It is not recommended to use all of the listed remedies to remove warts in children, especially young children. Children's skin is thinner and more delicate, its permeability is higher than that of adults. Yes, and adequate studies on the use of pencils for warts and papillomas in pediatrics probably have not been carried out.
The softest and safest remedy of all of these is a lapis pencil, but it can also cause a violent unwanted skin reaction in a child. In children, warts, in most cases, go away on their own, so if they do not cause discomfort to the child, they do not need to be treated. In other cases, it is necessary to consult a pediatric dermatologist.
