(HealthNewsDigest.com) - Some cryogenic wart removers-which remove warts from the skin by freezing them off-have caught fire during use at home, harming consumers or setting fire to items around the house.

Since 2009, FDA has received 14 such reports about over-the-counter (OTC) wart remover products. Ten patients have described singed hair, blisters, burns or skin redness.

Learn how to use these products safely and about alternative ways to remove warts.
