One of our most popular products is Salactol Wart Paint and many users have provided reviews in their experience using the product. I sat down with our superintendent pharmacist, Alessandro, to discuss the product and followed our conversations with a deep dive into the reviews provided by our users. Hopefully, this article will help you decide if this product may be for you!

How common are warts?

Alessandro says that warts are a lot more common among children than adults, however, it is quite likely that you will have warts at some point in your life, that is just statistics and what the research shows.

Are warts harmful?

Warts are harmless and, in many cases, will go away on their own. Alessandro says that self-healing of warts can take anywhere from weeks to years and is very individual. There are however different types of treatments available.

What are different treatments that don’t require a prescription?

In general, there are two over-the-counter treatments to be aware of: freezing and cyclic acid solutions. Alessandro continues: Salactol Wart Paint is one of the most common and most straightforward ways of treating warts.

For anyone treating warts for the first time Salactol Wart Paint is a good solution as it is easy to apply, works well for most and rarely results in any negative side effects.
