A small amount of sinecatechins ointment should be applied to each wart three times daily. No more than a 0.5 cm strand of ointment should be applied at any one time. You do not need to wash off ointment from the previous application before applying a new dose.
Wash your hands before applying the ointment. It should be dabbed on with a clean finger, leaving a thin layer of ointment covering the wart. Wash your hands immediately after applying the ointment to avoid contact with your eyes, nostrils, and mouth. Do not cover the treated area with dressings or a bandage.
New warts may develop during treatment with sinecatechins and these should also be treated as well. It is important to continue using this medication until complete clearance of all the warts, up to a maximum of 16 weeks. Contact your doctor if your warts do not go away or if they come back after treatment.
