Canthacur Wart Treatment
$99.00 USD


Canthacur should only be used in conjunction with your physician. This product is NOT intended for self treatment of warts. We may call you prior to shipping to ensure that your physician will be applying this product.

Canthacur is effective for Verruca Plantaris treatment (Plantar Wart or Planter Wart treatment) Molluscum Contagiosum treatment, and Verruca Vulgaris treatment (Common Wart treatment). It is to be used topically for the removal of benign epithelial growths such as warts (verruca vulgaris) or molluscum contagiosum. Because of the absence of scarring, cantharidin is useful for treating exposed areas where cosmetic results are important. Painless application and the absence of instruments makes it especially useful for treating children.

Use only as directed by your physician.

Follow package directions carefully and only use as directed. Only use under the guidance of a physician.

Contra-Indications: Hypersensitivity to the ingredients. Avoid alcoholic beverages for several hours after treatment.
Precautions: Cantharidin is a potent vesicant and is to be applied only by the physician. It is recommended care be used in the selection of patients to be treated and method used. The physician should develop his own experience and technique. Care should be used in selection of site of application since residual pigmentation may occur (rarely). It is recommended patients be advised of effect and possible results of treatment. Do not use on mucosal tissue. Do not use if growth or surrounding tissue is inflamed or irritated. Do not use on diabetics, or people with poor blood-circulation, on moles, birthmarks, or unusual warts with hair growing from them. Larger areas should not be treated at one time since discomfort may be excessive and systemic absorption may result.
Pregnancy and Lactation: Use during pregnancy or in nursing mothers is not recommended since there have been no adequate and well controlled studies performed in these groups.
Adverse Reactions: The development of annular warts following therapy has been reported in a small percentage of patients when the method of treatment was not properly followed. These lesions are superficial and, although they may alarm some patients, present little problem. Treatment consists of patient reassurance and re-treatment using either cantharidin or other procedures. There has been 1 report of chemical lymphangitis following use in combination with salicylic acid plaster.
