Warts are a common viral infection affecting the surface layers of the skin. They usually appear as a hard rough textured patch of skin. The incubation period of the virus varies from a week to several months.

Warts should be treated as soon as possible as they spread easily and are highly contagious. Warts are spread when the virus contacts damaged skin. Warts can be contracted through contact with contaminated towels, razors, shoes etc.

Infection is more likely to occur in warm, moist areas like swimming pools and change rooms.


  • Remove any plaster and soak the wart in hot water for 5 minutes and dry thoroughly with own, clean towel.
  • Rub the surface of the wart with a pumice stone, nail file, emery board or coarse washcloth. Take care not to cause bleeding.
  • Apply Duofilm directly to the wart using the supplied brush applicator. Use only enough Duofilm to cover the wart and avoid applying to the healthy surrounding skin. Apply Duofilm once/twice a day (as directed by podiatrist), until the wart has completely cleared, and the skins ridge lines have been restored.
  • Allow to dry and cover with a plaster if the wart is large (optional)

    Treatment Time
  • May vary; on average is 6 to 12 weeks. Consult your doctor if still present after 12 weeks

    Recommended for use from 2 years old to elderly. For use in children less than 2 years old please see your doctor.
