Cryotherapy for warts removal

Cryotherapy, or to freeze warts off, is one of the most common and well-known wart treatments available.

You can choose to freeze warts off at home or at a clinic. The clinic treatment uses a lower temperature to freeze the wart or verruca. At a clinic or hospital, the doctor or dermatologist uses liquid nitrogen to freeze the wart to around minus 190°C.

The traditional over the counter cryotherapy treatment contains a mixture of Dimethyl Ether and Propane and only freezes the wart tissue to around minus 50°C.

Should you freeze warts off at home or at a clinic?

In general, it is recommended that you try an over the counter solution for warts before turning to clinic treatments. If the home treatment fails, you may want to consider freezing your warts at a clinic or hospital. Cryotherapy with liquid nitrogen has been used for many years by dermatologists and doctors with varying success. Your doctor or dermatologist may recommend cryotherapy at a clinic if: 

  • You have had a wart for several years.
  • You have tried a number of different wart treatments and they have not had the desired effect.
  • Your wart is causing you a lot of pain.
  • You have a large number of warts on your body.

What are the alternatives to cryotherapy?

Salicylic acid has traditionally been the most common home treatment for warts. A new over the counter option is formic acid, which is easy to use and has a proven track record of removing nine out of ten warts1. EndWarts PEN contains formic acid and can be used by the whole family, including children under four, diabetics,  pregnant women and nursing mothers. If you are not able to remove your warts with an over the counter solution, other options for treatment at a clinic include burning warts, laser wart removal and surgery.
