What is Cantharone used for?
Cantharone is used to remove common warts, molluscum contagiosum and periungal warts. Cantharone contains the active ingredient Cantharidin. Cantharidin is a vesicant that creates blisters that remove the wart from the bottom. It may also contain salicylic acid as well. Cantharone is a burn agent used in wart removal or plantar warts treatment.
Cantharone is a high potency wart remover. It contains the active ingredient cantharidin 0.7%. There are currently no generics for Cantharone.
Cantharone is a liquid for topical (external) use only. Cantharone is applied using an applicator. It is applied directly onto the wart and the area (1 to 3 mm) around the wart. A few minutes after application, cover the area with a non-porous, plastic adhesive tape. The tape can be removed after 24 hours and replaced with an adhesive bandage.
Cantharone must be used under the supervision of a physician who will determine the number of applications required for wart removal. Application is usually at 10 to 14 day intervals but in some cases one application may suffice.
Treatment will vary depending on the type of wart being treated.
Cantharone is poisonous and may be fatal if ingested.
Cantharone is applied externally so there are no known drugs interactions.
