Answer

Topical Skin Products

Products that become cytotoxic following exposure to light may be beneficial.

5-Aminolevulinic acid topical 20% solution (Levulan Kerastick)

5-Aminolevulinic acid topical 20% solution is a topical porphyrin available as Levulan Kerastick. It is to be applied topically to warts and kept under occlusion for 5 hours and then exposed to red light-emitting diodes or another suitable red or blue light source.
