WHAT BAZUKA EXTRA STRENGTHGEL IS AND WHAT IT IS USED FOR• Bazuka Extra Strength Gel is a treatment forwarts, verrucas, corns and calluses.• Warts and verrucas are small excessivegrowths of skin caused by a type of virus.Warts often occur on the fingers, or on theback of the hands. You can recognise thecommon wart by the rough “cauliflower-like”appearance of the surface. Verrucas occuronly on the sole of the foot. They can bepainful, and often look like a small white ringof skin with a black dot in the centre. The virusis very infectious. This means that warts andverrucas can grow and spread, particularly ifleft untreated. The virus can also be transferredfrom one person to another.• Corns and calluses are hard, thick pads ofskin caused by pressure and friction. Theyusually occur on the feet due to poorly fittingshoes. They can also occur on the hands.• Bazuka Extra Strength Gel is suitable for useby adults, children and the elderly.• The active ingredient in this product issalicylic acid.• The active ingredient works by:• softening the hard skin growth, making it easierto remove with a pumice stone or emery board;• helping to kill the virus that causes wartsand verrucas.

To use the gel (adults, children and the elderly): Follow these steps once every day, usually in theevening. Carry on using the gel in this way untilthe wart, verruca, corn or callus disappears: A. Soak the affected area in warm water for2 to 3 minutes. B. Dry the area thoroughly, using your own towelif you have a wart or verruca (this will help stopthe infection spreading to other people). C. Taking care to avoid squeezing the tube,remove the protective yellow cap, leavingthe white nozzle attached to the tube. Carefully apply a thin coating (one or twodrops) of the gel to the top of the wart, verruca,corn or callus only: • avoid the gel spreading to the surroundinghealthy skin; • allow the gel to dry for a few minutes to forma small white patch that sticks to the treatedarea and is water resistant; • there is no need to cover the treated areawith a sticking plaster; • always replace the protective yellow capafter use. E. The next evening, carefully peel or pick offthe white patch of dried gel from the wart,verruca, corn or callus: • apply fresh gel as described above; • if removal of the white patch is difficult, carefullyre-apply the gel directly over it and leave it todry. This will thicken the white patch and makeit easier to remove. F. Once every week, before applying fresh gel,gently rub the wart, verruca, corn or calluswith the emery board provided, or apumice stone: • if you are treating a wart or verruca, do notlet anyone else use the emery board orpumice stone as the infection may spreadto them. G. The length of treatment will vary depending onthe 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 to12 weeks treatment before they disappear; • it is important that you do not give up on thetreatment until the wart, verruca, corn or callushas disappeared. • if the wart, verruca, corn or callus has notdisappeared after twelve weeks of treatmentask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
