So, I am 50 y/o and I hav enever in my life had a wart!
But, I started a new job, cashiering and I bust out with one right away…I'm not saying that it is from that, but money handling and interfacing closely with people like that can be unsanitary.
Ok, so I see commercials all my life on TV about Compound W for warts, no biggie, never gave it a second thought because I didn't have to.
I go into my local Target to purchase a box of bandages for my wart, not paying any mind to the "take caution if/ do not use if" area! until i got home then read it thoroughly.
It said do not take if you are Diabetic or have problems with blood circulation. So of course I go back and return, but since I am new at my job I do not have any health coverage, so I go talk to the pharmacist there while I am there. She said the reason is because if you wear a bandage you can cut your circulation, now I am no dummy…if i get a cut I will use a bandaid, just being careful as to not place it tightly…common sense, but i figured the package said that because of the ingredients…so doubting her answer to me I go place the product back on the shelf Nd notice the same product in a liquid drop form application vs the bandage type, i go back to her and ask her so then why does this box say the same thing? her response was its the same reason…and I said but there is no bandage involved, she got attitude and said well its the same reason, take my word or not!!!! Of course I put the product back on shelf and walked out, but before I did I put a complaint to the manager, for her attitude, rudeness and lack of knowledge or for communicating to me on a better level.
So, I turn to you my fellow diabetic patients…do you know anything good or otherwise on this issue? What can us Diabetics use for getting rid of a wart?
Thanks in advance,
