Dermatologist 's  Response
Hello, Mr.Pandey, the salt in dicarys is levamisole, which isnot a steroid and hence, devoid of its side-effects. Levamisole is an immunomodulator which will help in stopping the progression of viral warts, but complete resolution of existing warts with this alone is unlikely, so, u should visit a dermatologist for addition of either electrofulgration or weekly TCA application over the lesions for resolution of existing warts.
Happy recovery!
