Bazuka Verruca & Wart Gel – 5g
The active ingredients work by:
- softening the hard skin growth, making it easier to remove with a pumice stone or emery board;
- they also help kill the virus that causes warts and verrucas.
Bazuka Gel is a treatment for warts, verrucas, corns and calluses.
Warts and verrucas are small excessive growths of skin caused by a type of virus. Warts often occur on the fingers, or on the back of the hands. You can recognise the common wart by the rough ‘cauliflower-like’ appearance of the surface. Verrucas occur only on the sole of the foot. They can be painful, and often look like a small white ring of skin with a black dot in the centre. The virus is very infectious. This means that warts and verrucas can grow and spread, particularly if left untreated. The virus can also be transferred from one person to another.
Corns and calluses are hard, thick pads of skin caused by pressure and friction. They usually occur on the feet due to poorly fitting shoes. They can also occur on the hands. Bazuka Gel is suitable for use by adults, children and the elderly.
The active ingredients are salicylic acid (12.0% w/w) and lactic acid (4.0% w/w). The other ingredients are camphor, pyroxylin, ethanol and ethyl acetate.
Who is Bazuka suitable for?
Bazuka is suitable for any adult or child that is suffering from a wart, verruca, or corns and calluses. It is unsuitable for anyone who is allergic to any of the active ingredients in the gel or the other ingredients, which are:
- Ethyl acetate
Can Bazuka be used when pregnant or breastfeeding?
There is no evidence to suggest that Bazuka cannot be used when pregnant or breastfeeding. However, it is recommended that you speak to a doctor before using.
How should I use Bazuka?
You should only use Bazuka once a day, usually in the evening. You use it by applying a thin coating, only one or two drops, onto thoroughly washed and dried skin, this helps in reducing the spread of infection. Once put on, leave the gel to dry for 2-3 minutes. Then, the following evening, remove the white patch of dried gel and reapply it following the same procedure.
Bazuka should only be used on the feet and hands where the infection is. It should not be used on any spots, birthmarks, or warts with hairs in them.
Are there any side effects to using salicylic acid and lactic acid?
Like many medicines and treatments, there may be side effects when using Bazuka Gel. These include:
- A tingling sensation when applying the gel
- Skin irritation
If any of these side effects persist, or you notice a more serious side effect, then contact your doctor immediately
