This medicine is sold on the condition that it is to be used in accordance with recommendations for use as contained on the packaging and associated leaflets.

Directions for Use

Use it only on warts, verrucas, corns and calluses on sites for which it is recommended.
Before you use this tube of gel for the first time, open it as follows:

  • Find a suitable surface, in case of accidental spillage.
  • Hold the tube upright, with the cap uppermost and the base resting on a suitable surface.
  • Unscrew and remove the combined white nozzle/cap assembly from the tube.
  • Remove the red collar and dispose of it safely.
  • Keep the tube upright for 30 seconds.
  • Then, without squeezing or over-gripping the tube, and with it still held upright and away from your face:
    – replace the white nozzle/cap assembly onto the screw thread of the tube (taking care to avoid “cross-threading”);
    – tighten the nozzle/cap assembly firmly to pierce the top of the tube;
    – briefly loosen the cap (to release any slight ressure in the tube) and then re-tighten.
  • Please note that once in place, a small gap will remain between the base of the
    nozzle/cap and the top of the tube.

To use the gel (adults, children and The elderly):
Follow these steps once every day, usually in the evening. Carry on using the gel in this way until the wart, verruca, corn or callus disappears:

A. Soak the affected area in warm water for 2 to 3 minutes.
B. Dry the area thoroughly, using your own towel if you have a wart or verruca (this will help stop the infection spreading to other people).
C. Taking care to avoid squeezing the tube, remove the protective cap, leaving the nozzle attached to the tube.
D. Carefully apply a thin coating (one or two drops) of the gel to the top of the wart,
verruca, corn or callus only:
– avoid the gel spreading to the surrounding healthy skin;
– allow the gel to dry for a few minutes to form a small white patch that sticks to the
treated area and is water resistant; there is no need to cover the treated area
with a sticking plaster;
– always replace the protective cap after use.
E. The next evening, carefully peel or pick off the white patch of dried gel from the wart, verruca, corn or callus:
– apply fresh gel as described in steps
A to D above;
– if removal of the white patch is difficult, carefully re-apply the gel directly over it and leave it to dry. This will thicken the white patch and make it easier to remove.
F. Once every week, before applying fresh gel, gently rub the wart, verruca, corn or
callus with the emery board provided, or a pumice stone:
– if you are treating a wart or verruca, do not let anyone else use the emery board
or pumice stone as the infection may pread to them.
G. The length of treatment will vary depending on the size and resistance of the wart, verruca, corn or callus:
– some may go in a relatively short time;
– some warts and verrucas can require up to
12 weeks treatment before they disappear;
– it is important that you do not give up on the treatment until the wart, verruca, corn or callus has disappeared (unless irritation
occurs);
– if the wart, verruca, corn or callus has not disappeared after twelve weeks of
treatment ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
H. At the end of treatment, if the white patch is difficult to remove, you can leave it because it will eventually fall off by itself
