In 243 cases of verruca vulgaris, about 85% of the epidermal efflorescences caused by the wart virus were cured by two or more applications of Solcoderm in ambulant therapy. Of 127 cases of verruca plantaris treated, about 70% were cured after an initial course of four applications and 80% after further courses of treatment. More than 80% of recurrences responded to retreatment. A favorable effect on the pain caused by the plantaris warts was reported by 95% of the patients treated. No delayed complications were observed after the use of Solcoderm. The rate of incapacity for work after Solcoderm treatment, a total of 41 man-days, was extremely low when compared with that following cryosurgery and other surgical measures which, unlike Solcoderm therapy, often require immobilization, dressings or avoidance of soap and water.
