Bazuka Verruca Gel Extra Strength contain ingredients that work together to break down and remove verrucas (the term commonly used for a wart on the sole of the foot), warts, corns and calluses.
Warts and verrucas are small excessive growths of skin caused by a particular virus.
The virus is highly infectious and warts and verrucas may grow and spread, particularly if left untreated.
The virus can even be transferred from one person to another.
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, and are recognised by their tenderness and the interruption of the footprint pattern.
Bazuka Extra Strength Gel softens the skin growth, thus assisting removal of the excessive skin with an emery board or pumice stone.
Bazuka Extra Strength Gel also helps to kill the virus within the wart or verruca.
Corns and calluses are hard thick pads of skin caused by pressure and friction — usually on the feet due to poorly fitting shoes, or on the hands.
The skin softening action of Bazuka Extra Strength Gel is helpful in the mechanical removal of this skin, again with the aid of an emery board or pumice stone.
Salicylic Acid 26% w/w.Also contains: Camphor, Povidone, Pyroxylin, Ethanol and Ethyl Acetone.
Direction for Use
You should apply Bazuka Extra Strength Gel to your verruca, wart, corn or callus, once every day, usually in the evening. Repeat the following daily treatment routine until your verruca. wart, corn or callus has disappeared. Soak the affected area in warm water for 2 to 3 minutes Dry the area thoroughly with your own towel (to avoid cross-infection). Remove the protective yellow cap, leaving the white nozzle attached to the tube. Careful apply a thin coating (one or two drops) of the gel to the top of the verruca wart, corn or callus, and allow it to dry for a few minutes to form a small white patch which sticks to the skin and is water-resistant. There is no need to cover it with a sticking plaster. Take care to avoid the gel spreading onto surrounding healthy skin, as this may cause inflammation. Every evening for the next week, carefully peel or pick off the white patch of dried gel from the verruca, wart, corn or callus. Apply fresh gel. If necessary such re-application may be made on 2 or 3 successive days.

Not to be used on or near the face, neck, armpits, breasts, bottom or genital (sex) regions, or by diabetics or by individuals who suffer from poor blood circulation to the hands or feet.

If in doubt about the diagnosis, or whether Bazuka Extra Strength Gel is appropriate, seek medical advice before use.
