What is Bazuka Extra Strength Gel?
Bazuka Extra Strength Gel is used in the treatment of warts and verrucas. These are highly common and usually painless but can be unsightly. It can also be used to treat corns and calluses.
How does Bazuka Extra Strength Gel work?
Bazuka Extra Strength Gel contains salicylic acid which works by softening the skin, making the wart or verruca easier to remove. It also helps to kill the virus that causes them in the first place.
What are the benefits of taking Bazuka Extra Strength Gel?
Warts are small fleshy lumps of skin that often appear on the fingers and backs of the hands, while verrucas are the same infection but the name refers to warts that appear exclusively on the soles of the feet. Both are usually painless but can be unsightly and uncomfortable and treatment with Bazuka is quick, easy and painless.
How do I use Bazuka Extra Strength Gel?
Always follow the guidance given in the enclosed patient information leaflet and be sure to read it before commencing use of the medicine.
Start by soaking the affected area in warm water for 2 to 3 minutes so that skin softens slightly and then dry thoroughly using a towel only for the infected skin (don’t share towels as this can spread the infection).
Take care not to squeeze the tube but apply a thin coating of gel to the top of the wart or verruca. Try to avoid the surrounding skin and then allow the gel to dry before letting it touch anything or getting it wet.
When you apply it next, carefully pick off the white gel from the previous application and then repeat the same process.
Bazuka Extra Strength Gel dosage
The recommended dose of Bazuka Extra Strength Gel is to apply it to the infected area once a day, usually in the evening. Keep going with treatment until the wart or verruca has completely disappeared.
The length of treatment can vary; some warts and verrucas go relatively quickly while others require 12 weeks of treatment. Keep going with it unless you have been advised by a medical professional to do otherwise.
If you forget to use it then don’t worry and simply apply it when you remember.
