How does Dr. Yglo work

Dr. Yglo® precisely freezes the wart or plantar wart to the core, due to its unique precision tip. The rounded shape of Dr. Yglo’s® cryo tip allows accurate application limited to the wart or plantar wart, thereby avoiding the surrounding healthy skin. This results in a more pain-free application.

When using Dr. Yglo® the area treated may temporarily turn white. After the frozen area thaws, it will turn red. A blister may form underneath the treated wart or plantar wart as a result of the freezing process. The wart or plantar wart will gradually disappear or fall off over the next 10 to 14 days, revealing healthy new skin underneath.

One application should be sufficient to successfully remove a wart or plantar wart. Should a second treatment be necessary we advise you to wait 14 days between two applications. In some cases, it may help to soak the wart in warm water for a few minutes before using Dr. Yglo®.


What are warts & plantar warts?

Warts and plantar warts are rough lumps on the skin caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). They have a rough, irregular surface, resembling a cauliflower, but some are flat and smooth. Warts often develop on the fingers or on the back of the hands whether plantar warts or verrucas are similar to warts but occur only on the sole of the feet or underneath the toes. Both warts and plantar warts are contagious.
What are warts?
Warts and plantar warts are small growths of the skin caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). Warts often develop on the fingers or on the back of the hands. You can recognize the common wart by the rough ‘cauliflower-like’ appearance of the surface. The wart virus, which is very contagious, can be transmitted from person to person or from one body location to another by direct contact with an infected area. Plantar warts are similar to warts but occur only on the sole of the foot or underneath the toes. Generally painful, they often look like a small white ring of skin with black dots in the centre. Plantar warts are also contagious.

Symptoms of warts

Warts usually occur on your fingers, feet or hands. They are small, grainy skin growths that are often flesh colored, white, pink or tan. They may feel rough to the touch. Warts often feature a pattern of tiny black dots which are small, clotted blood vessels. What warts look like depends on the area of infection. The most common type of wart is the common wart (verruca vulgaris), plantar wart (verruca plantaris) and the plane wart (verruca plana). The common wart appears mostly on the hands and fingers and have a raised rough surface, contrary to the plane wart which is a flat-surfaced wart. The plantar wart is a skin-colored wart and occurs mostly on the feet or toes.
