Inflammed: The purpose of 5Fu (fluorouracil) applied to a wart is to cause your immune system to react or inflame and destroy. The wart will become red, irritated, and potentially oozing. It may also be a little tender if large enough.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
