Avoca’s Complete Wart & Verruca Treatment is a quick and reliable method for getting rid of persistent warts and verrucas. Avoca will target the wart or verruca directly, using silver nitrate.

The active ingredient is contained within a caustic pencil. This is applied onto the wart or verruca. Once the product has dried, the treated layer of tissue is removed with the emery board provided.

If instructions are followed correctly, Avoca will remove most warts and verrucas within one week of treatment.

Before applying silver nitrate to the skin, you will first need to dissolve it in a small amount of water. Only one drop is required. Put one drop in a non-absorbent container. Patients most commonly use a drinking glass at a slight angle. Swirl the tip of the caustic pencil in this drop for roughly 20 seconds. This will allow the active ingredient to dissolve in the water. Keep this water away from any absorbent materials, as it may cause damage or discolouration.

Once the tip is wet, touch it very gently to your wart or verruca. Take care as the tip will break if you apply too much pressure.

Once the area is dry, some tissue will fall away on its own. Use the emery board provided to remove the surface layer of the treated area.

This process can be repeated until the wart or verruca has been removed.

Not everyone will experience side effects when they use Avoca. However, if you, or if the product affects you in any other way, stop using it and talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

Reading the following warnings carefully will help to ensure you are selecting an appropriate product.

This treatment is unsuitable for you if you are allergic to any of its ingredients.

Avoca should not be used on:

  • Skin near the eyes

  • Other sensitive areas of skin

Take care once you have begun to dissolve the caustic pencil in water as silver nitrate will stain any absorbent material.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What do I do if the treated area begins to bleed?

    If there is an open wound at or near the affected area of skin, silver nitrate may cause stinging or bleeding. First, check that the pencil tip has not split, leaving a fragment in the skin. Silver nitrate can be neutralised using a saline solution.

    Allow the treated area to dry if you notice bleeding. Silver nitrate will stain clothing or nearby skin if blood transfers it from the wart or verruca. If normal skin becomes stained, it will naturally go back to normal after one or two days. Avoid contact with the eyes and other sensitive areas of skin.

  • How much silver nitrate is released during each treatment?

    This will depend on how long you dissolve the caustic pencil in water before an application. 22.5mg is contained in the applicator tip. However, only a small percentage of this will be released onto the skin during a treatment.

  • How does silver nitrate remove warts and verrucas?

    Silver nitrate is a simple inorganic salt. It is toxic to cells, and so is an effective way of combating bacteria and viruses. The pencil included with this treatment allows the solution to be applied safely and accurately.

  • What precautions should I take?

    Keep silver nitrate solution away from any absorbent materials. Do not use this product on the face or on genital warts.
