A caustic pencil is typically made from a substance called silver nitrate. The percentage mentioned, 40%, refers to the concentration or strength of silver nitrate in the pencil. In this case, a caustic pencil with 40% silver nitrate would have a relatively high concentration of the chemical.

Caustic pencils are used for medical purposes, primarily for the removal and cauterization of warts, skin tags, and other small skin lesions. When applied to the lesion, the caustic pencil releases silver nitrate, which chemically burns the tissue and helps to remove it.

It's important to note that caustic pencils should be used with caution and under professional guidance, as they can cause chemical burns if not used properly.



The appropriate dosage of a caustic pencil depends on the specific condition being treated and should be determined by a healthcare professional. Generally, a small amount of the caustic medication is applied directly to the affected area using the caustic pencil.

It is crucial to follow the instructions provided by a healthcare professional or the product packaging carefully to ensure the correct dosage and application technique. Over application or misuse of caustic pencils can lead to adverse effects such as excessive skin burning or scarring.

If you have a specific condition that requires the use of a caustic pencil, it is recommended to consult with a medical professional to determine the appropriate dosage and usage instructions for your situation.



1. Consult a healthcare professional before using it.
2. Adhere to the instructions regarding dosage and application technique.
3. Protect surrounding skin with a barrier like petroleum jelly.
4. Avoid contact with eyes, mouth, or open wounds.
5. Do not use on sensitive or broken skin.
6. Use in a well-ventilated area to avoid inhaling fumes.
7. Wash hands thoroughly after application.
8. Store the pencil in a cool, dry place away from children and pets.

Stop using it and seek medical advice if any adverse reactions occur.
