What is Wartie and what it is used for?

Wartie is an easy to use ‘freeze off’ treatment for warts and verrucas, similar to the cryotherapy method used by doctors. Warts and verrucas are small growths of the skin caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV).

Warts often develop on the fingers, or on the back of the hands, knees and elbows. You can recognise the common wart by the rough ‘cauliflower-like’ appearance of the surface. The wart virus, which is very contagious, can be transmitted from person to person or from one body location to another by direct contact with an infected area.

Verrucas are similar to warts but occur only on the sole of the foot or underneath the toes. Generally painful, they often look like a small white ring of skin with black dots in the centre. Verrucas are also contagious and can be transmitted to another person by contact with a wet surface such as a floor.

How does Wartie work? Wartie precisely freezes the wart or verruca to the core, due to its unique precision tip. The rounded shape of Wartie’s cryo tip allows accurate application limited to the wart or verruca, thereby avoiding the surrounding healthy skin, resulting in a more pain-free application. It brings the temperature of the wart or verruca to sub zero level.

Why Wartie?

Wartie employs a patented technology to provide a fast and effective cryotherapy treatment for warts and verrucas.

How to use

Please read the enclosed leaflet carefully before using this product.


Common Warts:

Gently squeeze the gel tube to apply one single drop of the conductive gel exactly on the wart.

Remove the cap and place the can upright on a table or flat surface.
Keeping the can in vertical position (do not tilt); firmly hold the collar between your thumb and index finger, twist the cone in counter clockwise direction with your other hand and firmly push down the cone for 3 seconds without touching the metal tip. You will now hear the activation sound (hiss).
Be sure the cone twists back to zero automatically to lock the system before applying the product. Wait for 2 seconds while the metal tip freezes.
Precisely apply the frozen metal tip on the common wart (hand) for 20 seconds.


Plantar Warts (verrucas):

Gently squeeze the gel tube to apply one single drop of the conductive gel exactly on the wart.

Remove the cap and place the can upright on a table or flat surface holding it by the collar.
Keeping the can in vertical position (do not tilt); firmly hold the collar between your thumb and index finger, twist the cone in counter clockwise direction with your other hand and firmly push down the cone for 3 seconds without touching the metal tip. You will now hear the activation sound (hiss).
Be sure the cone twists back to zero automatically to lock the system before applying the product. Wait for 2 seconds while the metal tip freezes.
Precisely apply the frozen metal tip on the plantar wart (foot) for 40 seconds.
In case of particularly sensitive skin (i.e. if you experience difficulties walking after treatment), a foam plaster can be used to protect the tender plantar wart area after treatment has been completed. Carefully remove foam plaster from backing. Apply adhesive side of foam plaster to skin with hole directly over the small tender spot.

It is important that the instructions in the information leaflet are followed exactly. Careless use can cause freezing too deeply, causing permanent damage to the uppermost layer of the skin on fingers and toes. This may result in permanent scarring or nerve damage.


Follow-up treatment

  • Keep the treated area clean.
  • You may swim or shower.
  • Do not pick or scratch the treated area as this may result in infection.
  • Protect blisters, if necessary, with a gauze or sterile adhesive bandage.
  • Do not puncture blisters. Puncturing blisters will be painful and may result in infection.
  • Avoid sun exposure or wear sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) and minimize trauma to treated sites until completely healed (i.e wart/verruca has fallen off and colour has returned to normal).
