Remove plantar warts yourself at home with LeaLea cream
Here you will find the 6 exact application steps for the safe removal of plantar warts at home.
One pack provides enough LeaLea cream to remove:
- 1 – 3 warts depending on diameter
In principle, LeaLea can be used on all plantar warts.
Larger plantar warts sometimes require more than one application to remove them completely.
6 easy application steps to remove safely
1.1 Cleaning & soaking
Thoroughly clean your hands, the plantar wart and the application area with soap and water to remove sweat, grease or dirt.
Soak the plantar wart in warm water for 10 minutes.
Then dry everything with a towel.
Disinfect the area of application over a large area with the antibacterial alcohol wipes provided.
Roughen the entire surface of the plantar wart with the file supplied. Roughening and opening is the most important step of the treatment so that the cream can be absorbed well. The easiest way to do this is to hold the plantar wart between two fingers. It is important that you make the center of the plantar wart accessible to the cream.
You can also remove the callus with disinfected nail scissors.
Do not roughen the surrounding skin. If bleeding occurs during roughening or scratching, wait until the bleeding has stopped completely before applying the cream.
3.1 Open the cream and stir
Open the LeaLea Creme jar and stir the contents thoroughly with the applicator stick . Do not use cotton swabs here!
If the cream has dried, you can liquefy the consistency yourself. Use the applicator to gradually add a small drop of water until the original, milky consistency has been achieved.
3.2 Apply cream
Use the applicator stick to apply a thin layer of the LeaLea cream onto the surface of the plantar wart.
Cover 100% of the plantar wart if possible, but avoid contact between the cream and the surrounding skin. Should contact nevertheless occur, simply remove the cream with the help of a cotton swab and then immediately wash the area off with water.
Close the cream immediately after application to prevent it from drying out.
3.3 Let the cream work for 20 minutes
Now let the cream work for 20 minutes . You should feel a moderate to strong burning sensation , which lasts for 5-10 minutes. The plantar wart should now slowly turn dark brown or black or the color of the contour should change.
If you do not feel a burning sensation on the treated area of skin, this means that the LeaLea cream has not penetrated the tissue of your plantar wart. The application will only be partially successful or not at all. Wipe off the cream and repeat the application. Now roughen the plantar wart more so that the cream can be better absorbed.
3.4 Wipe off the cream
Soak the white, dried LeaLea cream carefully with water for 10 seconds and then wipe it off with a cotton swab .
Reddened skin around the application area is a natural sign that the healing process has occurred. The reddening usually disappears after a short time.
Important: Larger plantar warts sometimes require further treatment. Now repeat steps 3.2 to 3.4 or wait 1-3 weeks until the crust falls off and then repeat the complete application.
4. Let the crust form
A brown or black crust should have formed within the next 24 to 48 hours .
Care must be taken not to remove it early , as this can lead to scarring. Protect the crust while bathing, washing or exercising, for example with a plaster.
In principle, an antibacterial cream can be used to prevent inflammation immediately after application. Alternatively, we recommend applying pure, natural aloe vera gel without additives 3-4 times a day until the crust has fallen off.
5. Let the black crust fall off
After 1-3 weeks (up to 5 weeks is normal for larger, multi-layered plantar warts) the crust loosens naturally and falls off.
It is important not to remove the scab early, as this interrupts the skin’s natural healing process and makes scarring more likely.
Pink discolored or reddish tissue is normal after the crust has fallen off. The skin tones gradually adjust again over time.
6.1 Protect the treatment site
After the crust falls off, protect the newly formed skin from excessive exposure to the sun.
Also, do not apply care products with chemical ingredients.
Sport can of course be done without restriction if it does not cause any irritation to the treatment site.
6.2 Improve and accelerate healing
A daily follow-up treatment with pure vitamin E oil from the pharmacy supports the skin in its regeneration. Apply the vitamin E oil at best 3-4 times a day. This can accelerate the healing process and improve the treatment result.
6.3 Adjusting skin tones naturally
After 3 months , the skin tone of the young skin has adapted more and more to the original skin tone . It is then usually almost impossible to see where the plantar wart was.
Depending on the size of the plantar wart, blood circulation and nutrient supply to the skin tissue, this can take up to 6 months. Be patient and continue with the follow-up treatment with vitamin E oil until you are satisfied with the result.
