Bazuka Treatment Gel contains salicylic acid which gradually and gently removes the infected skin tissue, thereby eliminating the virus. Also, the gel dries over the area to form a protective water-resistant seal over the verruca or wart in order to help reduce the spread of the infection.

Bazuka Treatment Gel is a once daily application. It is designed to inhibit the spread of the verrucca/wart infection and it does this by forming a water-resistant, protective barrier.

About warts and verrucas:

The fact is most people will suffer from a wart or verruca at least once in their life, usually before the age of 20. It is estimated that at any time, around one in ten people in the UK have a wart or verruca.

Warts and verrucas are a common problem for children especially, since they are very infectious and easily passed around. Public swimming pools are well-known verruca risk areas, since children walk around bare-foot, making the infection easy to spread.

What is a verruca?

Verrucas are warts on the foot, or 'plantar warts'. You could call any wart a verruca, but people usually use the term 'verruca' specifically to mean a wart on the sole of the foot.

What causes verrucas?

Verrucas are caused by an infection of the skin by a virus called the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), which is highly contagious. The viral infection is spread through skin contact with contaminated surfaces. We are especially prone if our immune system is weakened, or if the skin on our hands and feet is damaged by cuts or scratches and comes into contact with rough surfaces contaminated with the virus. This explains why people often catch verrucas in communal changing areas, like those at swimming pools and gym clubs. Virus-infected skin cells are shed onto the floor and passed onto others walking over the same area.

If someone has a wart or verruca the virus can spread to other parts of their body as well as to other people.

Verrucas tend to appear on weight bearing areas such as the ball of the foot, making them particularly uncomfortable and quite painful to walk on. In addition, verrucas can be more painful when you wear tight fitting shoes.

Things to know about verrucas.

Verrucas may go away by themselves eventually, but this can take a considerable length of time, and there is always the risk of spreading them to others or getting more yourself because they are contagious. So it is best to treat them when they first appear. The longer verrucas and warts are left untreated the harder they can be to remove, so children's hands and feet in particular should be checked regularly.

Good ways to avoid getting verrucas include always wearing some kind of footwear in places like communal showers and sports changing rooms, and always using your own towel.

How to use Bazuka Treatment Gel:

For adults, the elderly and children over 2 years: Children under 12 should be treated under adult supervision and treatment of infants less than 2 years is not recommended.

Bazuka Treatment Gel should be applied once daily. The gel should be applied to the wart, verruca, corn or callus every night. Treatment can take up to twelve (12) weeks for resistant lesions to disappear, and it is necessary to persevere with the treatment.

  • Every night, soak the affected site in warm water for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Dry thoroughly with the patient's own towel; this towel should be used for the affected site(s) only.
  • Carefully apply one or two drops of the gel to the lesion and allow to dry over its surface. Take care to avoid spreading on to surrounding normal skin. No adhesive plaster is necessary.
  • The following evening, carefully remove and discard the elastic film formed from the previous application. Repeat steps 1 to 3 to reapply the gel. Hands should be washed after touching the wart or verruca. Occasionally, if removal of the elastic film proves difficult, carefully reapply the gel over it and allow to dry. This should help thicken the film to assist removal. If necessary, such re-application may be made on two or three successive days.
  • The wart, verruca, corn or callus may take up to twelve (12) weeks to disappear and it is important to persevere with the treatment.
  • If the wart/verruca has not disappeared after about 12 weeks of treatment, further advice should be sought from a doctor or pharmacist.
  • At the end of treatment, if the elastic film is difficult to remove, it may be allowed to remain on the skin until it sheds.

Active ingredients: Salicylic Acid 12.0% w/w, Lactic Acid 4.0% w/w.
