Over The Counter Wart Removal Products

Warts are skin growths which may appear in any part of the body as a result of the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). There are arrays of wart removers in the market to serve your purpose. Some of these Wart Removal Products could be acquired over the counter. These include;

Podophyllin and podofilox

These are mainly for genital warts treatment. They are easily absorbed in the skin, which is detrimental if used by pregnant women as they may result to birth defects.

Salicylic acid

It is mainly used to treat plantar, flat, periungal and seed/common warts. This acid is found in form of liquid solution, gel or a removal patch. It is unsafe for treating warts around the face, neck, lips and eyes.


This is used to treat genital warts just like podophyllin and podofilox. It is suitable for both male and female genital warts treatment. In addition, it is used by doctors to treat vaginal warts which are mostly categorized among the Sexually Transmitted Diseases.

Retinoid solutions:

These are used in treating common warts which occur around the fingers and the back of the hand.

Duct tape:

This is used to cover the wart for some days (5-6 days). When it is detached, the wart is scrubbed to remove dead cells. Duct tapes are also effective in reducing spread of the virus to other areas of the body.
