This is best taken away from food, drink and toothpaste (20 minutes either side) for it to work properly.
Use until wart disappears. (Note: If you are lactose intolerant, most off the shelf homeopathic remedies do contain lactose. A homeopath should be able to supply a non-lactose pill as an alternative.)
