Cantharidin Side Effects
Cantharidin: Your doctor "paints" cantharidin on your wart and covers it with a bandage. This is generally painless. The cantharidin causes the skin under the wart to blister, lifting the wart off the skin. When the blister dries, the wart comes off with the blistered skin. You may feel some pain when the skin blisters. When you see your doctor again, he or she will remove the dead skin and may retreat.
Stubborn wart on my little toe treated today by my determatologist by freezing and applied cantharidin. But in so much pain can't walk! What to do?
Go home: Go home, remove your shoes and socks, elevate your leg on pillows, take analgesics. The pain will subside if you can avoid further aggravation. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
