I'm so glad I ignored the reviews. I think that the people who hate it must be DOING IT WRONG. Don't chicken out and just use the corner, FOLLOW DIRECTIONS and just slam that puppy down on the wart, suck it up because it DOES sting, and count to 20. It took off two warts on the back of my hand in one use, and a huge, ugly nasty wart of my husband's thumb in two uses. That's three warts gone for the cost of Chinese takeout, and no dragging the 3 year old to a dermatologist. Much faster than the old liquids, much cheaper and easier than a doctor, no mess, no nasty smell.This is my new first line go-to for future warts.

I have been suffering from common and plantar warts for fourteen years, having caught them in elementary school. In the past I have been treated with liquid nitrogen by a physician with mixed results. I have also tried medicated pads and liquid wart remover, also with mixed results. Warts near nails respond well to liquid nitrogen, while ones along the fingers tend to shrink with liquid or stick treatments containing 40% salicylic acid. Dimethyl ether, the alternative freezing agent to liquid nitrogen, does not work well on stubborn warts, those having long roots, or plantar warts. I feel if liquid nitrogen would be approved for home use, OTC wart freezing products would have a better success rate. As I continue to treat my warts using various methods I have eliminated all of the ones I developed before college, however, new ones keep appearing on my hands. After having surgery in 2007 to remove seven plantar warts, I have one that has returned. I recommend seeing a podiatrist, as I am doing, for treating irritating plantar warts. With the help of a dermatologist, I am currently trying cauterization to treat stubborn warts on my hands. Freezing warts is harsh but, as I have experienced thus far, it has a 50% chance of effective wart removal with bi-weekly treatments. Good luck.

    Comments about Dr. Scholl's Freeze Away Wart Remover, 7 ea:

    I had a small wart on my thumb and a large one under my foot. It created a huge blister on my thumb and was very painful when I first did it and I did not do the treatment more than once for my thumb. It seems like it is going to heal and let's hope the wart will go away while the blister goes away. However, the product doesn't seem that much effective for the large wart under my foot. It seems like it only makes it cold, just a little bit healing on the cauliflower appearance, but no blister or signs of wart going away. I guess it is not very good for large and old warts. I recommend the product for smaller and new warts.

        Comments about Dr. Scholl's Freeze Away Wart Remover, 7 ea:

        This product works exactly as in a doctors office, if you do it just like your doctor would. Doctors use liquid nitrogen on a q-tip type applicator and they press hard to freeze deep into the tissue. Remember, the intent is to freeze the tissue so it dies and eventually peels or falls off. If it doesn't sting, you wasted your time. It stings at the doctors, and it stings when you do it yourself. My experience is it stings much less with this product than having my doctor do this. I've removed warts and other skin tags with this product multiple times. Excellent product when used properly.

              I got rid of a big nuisance wart on my finger in two applications. I also got rid of a nuisance mole even though it says don't use on moles, it worked equally well. I'm uninsured and self treat, but you should have your doctor look at your mole first.

                Don't buy this. It just makes things worse. After months of trying this product and others, the only thing that was completely effective was 2 visits to the family physician (two treatments of liquid nitrogen). I wish we didn't waste all this time with expensive and useless products.

                    I used this freeze away product 3 times on 2 fingers of my right hand. I was very careful to follow instructions explicitly. Didn't work at all, in fact, I think my two warts are now larger than they were when I first tried to freeze them off. Very disappointed, was so excited to find this product and had very high hopes!

                      bought this product 2 times. First time it worked great. One or two applications and it was gone. Second time, all seven applications did not work. I know plantar warts are tough but mine laughed at this thing. I even cut all of the skin off with a clippers and then applied, still didn't work.
