Any pharmacists or knowledgable people? Why shouldn't I have used Scholl Wart & Verucca freeze-off doo-dah?

I know, I know...

I didn't read the insert, I just read the instructions on the back. Then afterwards I read the warnings...

Please tell me I have not done irreparable damage sad

I'm so fucking stupid.

from what i can see, it's possibly because of the alcohol content. i cannot see a huge problem with it tbh. they may just be covering themselves as most drug companies do. i've had a verucca frozen off at the gp's a couple of months ago when i was 6 months. don't worry.
i would deff avoid any of the treatments that contain salicylic acid as these are aspirin based, which is a no-no.

I used it. I am still alive, baby is still alive but the wart is dead!

Still feel a bit dense for not reading the instructions, but I'm happy that I haven't (in all likelihood!) done any damage - apart from the verruca, of course...
