It worked, here’s how., August 15, 2015
By Chelsea Gipson –
This review is from: Compound W Wart Remover One Step Pads – Maximum Strength – Waterproof, Medicated, Self-Adhesive Pads Conceal and Protect Common and Plantar Warts While Treating them with Salicylic Acid – 14 Count (Health and Beauty)
This worked for mine, but since this was my first wart ever, when people said “it worked!” I wanted to know what to expect, but I couldn’t find that anywhere. So, here’s what happened:
First bandaid: Everything turned white.Second bandaid: The top layer of the wart started disappearing and I could see the blood vessels that were inside it were now clearly visible.Third bandaid: It started burning while wearing it. One day was REALLY painful, but now I think I just put the bandaid on too tight. There was definitely burning though. Uncomfortable, not unbearable.Fourth bandaid: The skin around the wart started to crack.Fifth bandaid: The skin continued to crack and I could see the wart separating.Sixth bandaid: Skin separating deeper. Wart was really soft but it wouldn’t budge.Seventh bandaid: The wart stuck to the medicine, so when I pulled off the bandaid, the wart went with it.
I’m left with some raw skin that’s a bit sensitive but it feels fine. It looks like the entire wart came off, roots and all, but I guess we’ll find out if it starts growing back. :/
Sidenote: It smells horribly. Make sure you put the bandaid on tight enough to try and conceal the smell, but not too tight so it hurts.
Overall not a horrible process. But pretty gross for someone who had no idea what to expect! Make sure you follow the instructions and keep it on for 48 hrs at a time. Two of mine were only on for 24 hrs and I think that prolonged the process.
Hope this helps.

Works!, May 13, 2017
By Amazon Customer –
I’ve had a wart on my finger for probably around a year already. I’ve researched on it and decided to just wait for my immune system to get rid of it. Unfortunately, that day just never came. So I decided to get these salicylic acid bandaids, because it resembles that home remedy I read about duct tapes and garlic.
At first I thought it was going to be a quick process. Guess I didn’t do enough research on this. Anyway, I found out that it works by burning your skin so it kills the wart with it. Pretty much what other reviewers have commented here is what happened. Just don’t panic and make sure you follow the instructions to the letter.
It’s fairly water-resistant, as long as you stick it properly and fully to your skin where water can’t enter the padded area. I was able to take showers with it.
The whole treatment just lasted a week for me. It could be more for others, especially if you have a bigger wart. Upon removing my 5th bandaid, the wart got kinda loose so I tried scraping it off with my nail, and yea it just popped off leaving the dead skin it was in and a crater with healed skin underneath.
I’ve no photos of when the wart was still on my finger, but here’s a current photo, 1 week after I stopped treatment. The skin around is still kinda sensitive, but it’s getting better.
UPDATE: Been a while now and the wart hasn’t come back. My skin is back to normal and it feels normal again too. Can’t believe I’d feel this “normal” sensation again around that area. It’s awesome!
