Wart Peels and How To Apply Them

Posted by The claRx Content Team on Sep 18, 2020 2:00:00 PM

Here at claRx Big Country Dermatology Pharmacy, we offer a variety of wart peel products. Our wart peels come in cream, ointment, and liquid formulations. Most wart peel products contain salicylic acid, which softens the skin cells and leads to peeling. They usually contain fluorouracil, which works by interfering with cell DNA, which leads to cellular death in the targeted area. Some of the wart peel ointments contain podophyllin, which interferes with cell division and the formation of new wart skin cells.
