To avoid systemic absorption, time of contact should be minimum time necessary to produce the desired result (1 to 4 hours, depending on condition of lesion and of patient), the physician developing his/her own experience and technique. Large areas or numerous warts should not be treated at once.
After treatment time has elapsed, remove dried Podocon-25® thoroughly with alcohol or soap and water.
