Duofilm Cutaneous Solution 15ml
Please be advised We highly recommend that you Read all medication leaflet carefully before you start taking any medicine because it contains important information for you. Duofilm is indicated for the treatment of warts.
Adults, the elderly and children aged 2 years and over.
Apply daily to the affected areas only.
Children under the age of 12 years should be treated under supervision.
Treatment of infants under the age of 2 years is not recommended.
Duofilm should be applied to the wart once daily preferably at bedtime.
The wart should be soaked in warm water for 5 minutes and dried thoroughly with a clean towel. The surface of the wart should be rubbed with a nail file, pumice stone, emery board or coarse washcloth, with care taken not to cause bleeding.
A thin layer of Duofilm should be applied directly to the wart. Care should be taken to avoid the healthy surrounding skin.
The solution should be allowed to dry thoroughly. The wart should be covered with a plaster (dressing) if it is large or if it is on the foot to help penetration of ingredients.
It is recommended that treatment continues until whichever of the following occurs first:
• Warts have been treated for 12 weeks
• The wart is completely cleared and the normal ridgelines of the skin have been restored.
For warts, clinically visible improvement should occur in 1-2 weeks, but the maximum effect may be expected after 4-8 weeks.
If warts persist beyond 12 weeks of treatment, the patient should be advised to consult their pharmacist or doctor.
Consider alternative treatments if warts cover a large area of the body (more than 5 cm2) (see Warnings and Precautions).
Patients should be advised to consult a pharmacist or doctor if skin irritation develops.
Due to the flammable nature of Duofilm, patients should avoid smoking or being near an open flame during application and immediately after use.Contains: Salicylic acid 16.7% w/w, Lactic acid 15.0% w/w
