Cantharone Plus (cantharidin) is a topical liquid used to remove plantar warts and warts that are resistant to other medications or are heavily keratinized. Due to its high potency and toxicity, it should be applied by a physician and is not suitable for children under 12 years old. If your child is under 12 years old, consult with your doctor about an alternative wart removal. Cantharone leaves no permanent scars and forms a uniform blister.

Plantar warts are topical skin growths caused by a viral infection that also causes human papillomavirus or HPV. Plantar warts are benign, however, they can cause itching and discomfort. They are quite common in children and are transmitted indirectly from infected surfaces, such as playgrounds, swimming pools, and public showers. Most people will have a plantar wart at some point in their life. If a wart has become heavily keratinized, it may be resistant to other wart-removal medications.
Plantar warts are named after the area of the body where they are found. If you develop a wart anywhere other than your feet, this is not a plantar wart. Do not apply Cantharone Plus to any other part of the body unless directed by your doctor.
About Cantharone Plus
Cantharone Plus is intended for warts that are resistant to other medications. The main ingredient in Cantharone Plus is cantharidin, which is a chemical secreted from certain species of beetles. Cantharone Plus is highly potent and toxic and should be applied by a physician. The chemical composition of Cantharone Plus is 30% salicylic acid, 2% podophyllin BP, 1% cantharidin in a film-forming vehicle containing 0.5% octylphenyl polyethylene glycol, cellosolve, ethocel, collodion, castor oil, and acetone.
Cantharone Plus should not be used on people with diabetes or impaired peripheral circulation. Patients should expect blistering after the application, which may cause pain or discomfort. Cantharone Plus is not recommended for pregnant or nursing mothers. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or nursing before using Cantharone Plus.
Before applying Cantharone Plus, disinfect your hands. There are two methods of application:
- Method A (no curettage): Occasionally, nails must be trimmed to expose subungual warts to medication. Using a pointed wooden applicator stick, apply CANTHARONE® PLUS sparingly (one layer only) to the wart and about 1 to 3 mm margin around the wart. (For large mosaic warts, treat a portion of the wart at a time.) Allow to dry for a few minutes. Cover with a piece of non-porous plastic adhesive tape, e.g. Blenderm®. Instruct patient to keep the tape on for at least four hours (up to 8 hours). Within 24 hours a blister forms which is often painful and inflamed. Have the patient return for observation in one to two weeks. During this period the patient may or may not do periodic soaks as the doctor prefers. Remove necrotic tissue and treat as before if any viable wart tissue remains. Allow tissue to re-epithelialize before re-treatment.
- Method B (with curettage): Proceed as in Method A except have patient return in one day for curettage. Local anesthesia may be necessary. There are several advantages to this method; treatment with CANTHARONE® PLUS prior to curettage enhances identification of tissue planes, increases separability of wart tissue and re-treatment is rarely necessary. The lesion normally heals completely within one to three weeks. Have the patient return for observation in four weeks.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
