What is WartPEEL
WartPEEL is a prescription compounded medication containing 17% salicylic acid and 2% 5-fluorouracil. WartPEEL is not a cream or ointment but in a special adhesive gel called Remedium which quickly dries and does not move off the application site. It is applied at night and washed off in the morning. For more details see our video below.
WartPEEL has three US patents and has been prescribed by thousands of healthcare providers since 2004. It has been featured in Practical Dermatology for Warts and Seborrheic Keratosis (SKs), The Dermatologist, and MDedge and the Derms and Conditions podcast.
How to get WartPEEL
WartPEEL is a patented compounded prescription medication produced exclusively by NuCara Pharmacy and can be shipped to every state except Alaska. There are two ways to find a healthcare provider who can decide if WartPEEL is the right treatment for you:
- Ask your dermatologist (most likely to be familiar with WartPEEL), your primary care provider, pediatrician, podiatrist, or urologist. They may have already heard about WartPEEL. If they are unfamiliar with WartPEEL the prescriber side of our website is designed to educate them on how to use and prescribe WartPEEL. We recommend presenting them with this article in The Dermatologist for them to read in case they have not heard about WartPEEL and directing them to this website.
- Schedule a teledermatology visit. The average wait time to see a dermatologist is over a month. Teledermatology offers a convenient and secure way to have a virtual visit and be prescribed medication within days. There are several nationwide teledermatology services available. We recommend www.skymd.com as their healthcare providers have been trained in the uses and dispensing of WartPEEL. If you are interested in having a SkyMD dermatologist prescribe WartPEEL, please select "Referred by WartPEEL" in the Medical Concern section when submitting your case. There are also many local dermatologists who offer teledermatology services and may even be able to follow up with you in person if necessary. There is no guarantee that you will be prescribed WartPEEL as that is always up to the provider's clinical judgment.
