Wart Treatment with Mediplast
Directions regarding use
In order for Mediplast to work in the treatment of warts, it must be used as directed. The plaster should be cut to the size of the wart. If the plaster covers too much normal, healthy tissue, skin irritation will develop. The backing of the plaster is removed and the sticky surface is applied to the wart. It is important to secure the plaster to your skin with tape. The plaster should be left in place for 48 - 72 hours. After 48 – 72 hours, remove the plaster, shower with the wart uncovered and then attempt to remove as much of the pliable white tissue with an emery board or pumice stone. Once the white tissue has been removed, apply a new piece of Mediplast. Repeat the same process every 48 – 72 hours. If the tissue becomes red or sore, discontinue use for two days and then reapply.
Important information regarding Mediplast
- The process outlined above should be continued until the wart resolves or for a maximum of three months.
- If the plaster comes off before it is due to be removed, apply a new piece of plaster.
- The emery board or pumice stone used for debriding the wart should be cleaned with a bleach type solution after each use.
- A one month follow-up appointment with a health care provider is recommended for patients using Mediplast.
