DAY 2 CompoundW Liquid Warts removal RiteAid Item No. 0336710
It looks the same as day 1, except the the liquid compoundW turned white as snow and hardened, I don’t think I should remove the harden layer, I just applied on top of it not letting any residue go on the skin though, just on the wart.
I did some additional research on “Compound W – First treatment day it is all white around, is this normal?” the answer is “YES”
Yes, this is normal. Salicylic acid (the active ingredient) is a keratolytic agent and works by peeling off the outer layers of the skin. This can look unsightly and by all means cover it but it is not entirely necessary. Make sure you protect the healthy skin around the wart by applying petroleum jelly before using Compound W.
I also sent an email to the CompoundW manufacture through their contact page and will keep update if they responded. “I have a common wart on my finger. I am on day 2 using the CompoundW Liquid, noticed the liquid turned white as snow and now hardened. I soaked by finger in warm water for about 5 minutes, but it is still harden cannot be removed easily; or should I even try to remove it in order to apply another drop or new layer of the liquid on top of it? Thanks very much.”
