Ummm, besides b/c it says not to? It is designed for plantar warts which are only found on the feet. The ones on your face are a different type of wart. Could make it worse, could burn like hell, could leave a bad scar.

I had a wart actually inside my nose just off to the side of my nostril and I actually had to have it surgically removed. You should see a dermatologist or ENT for this. My ENT was the one who removed the wart. The procedure was done in the hospital as an out patient and took 20 minutes. I opted for this instead of in his office because the pain associated with numbing my face with novicane would have been worse than actually going under mild sedation.I was fine after and had no ill effects, this was done in 2008 and It has never come back. Do not use wart remover there, it for feet and hands.

Have you ever used a wart remover before?

As others have said, a wart remover for plantar warts won't work on other warts in the first place. So, that would be reason enough not to try that product on your face.

But, generally, wart removers use an acid (I think) and it basically kills your skin cells and turns them totally white in the process. It looks horrible. I would never use a product like that on my face where it would be difficult or impossible to cover it with a bandage.

This will sound crazy, but I have heard from a couple sources that people have successfully treated warts by applying coconut oil to them a couple times a day. If it were me, I would try that before I'd use something like Compound W on my face since it won't scar or burn your skin. If it doesn't work, then lesson learned, but if it does, you've saved yourself a lot of pain and potential scarring.

It could burn you, and scar you....you could get some of it in your nose or mouth...it's NOT meant to be taken internally.

Go to doctor. Or, just wait it out....most warts go away eventually on their own...might take a couple years, tho!

A dermotologist can remove whatever it is without leaving a scar.
