MolluTinc Water Warts is a medical device for the treatment of molluscum contagiosum or sometimes called water warts.
The active ingredient potassium hydroxide is known to dissolve keratin (the outermost layer of the skin) and it breaks down the cells around the virus.
MolluTinc is the only approved UK-available 10% potassium hydroxide treatment for molluscum contagiosum that can be used at home
Water warts are a skin condition caused by a highly contagious virus called molluscum contagiosum.
The virus appears as raised spots which can look like small pearls under the skin. They can be itchy and last up to 18 months without treatment.
Read the instruction leaflet provided with the device for full instructions on application
This product must only be applied by an adult. Children should not handle the product or touch it with their hands after it has been applied by the adult.
In order to prevent the skin surrounding the mollusca from being affected, we recommend protecting the skin surrounding the mollusca, prior to the treatment, for instance by means of petroleum jelly or zinc ointment.
MolluTinc should be used twice a day. Put petroleum jelly on the healthy skin around the water warts.
Then apply MolluTinc directly onto the water warts.
Occasionally, MolluTinc may cause a slight burning sensation, irritation or redness. Don’t worry, this usually only lasts for a few minutes after you apply it and can be a sign that it is working.
In about 2 to 10 days the water warts will become red.
This shows that MolluTinc is working, so you don’t need to worry. Stop using MolluTinc when this happens
Only apply to the Mollusca Water wart. Leave to let it dry completely, so that other parts of the healthy skin do not come into contact with the liquid.
Apply to the affected areas two times a day (morning and evening), until the mollusca becomes inflamed (red coloured), this mostly happens after 2-10 days.
This is a sign the mollusca will disappear within 1-5 weeks
