Salactol Wart Treatment 10ml
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. Use it only on warts, verrucas, corns and calluses on sites for which it is recommended.
For adults, children and the elderly:
Follow these steps once every day, usually in the evening. Carry on using the product 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. Gently rub away any loose, hard skin from the surface of the wart, verruca, corn or callus
with an emery board or a piece of pumice stone:
? if you are treating a wart or verruca, do not let anyone else use the emery board or
pumice stone after you as the infection may spread to them.
D. Unscrew the cap of the bottle and, using the applicator attached to the inside of the
cap, carefully apply a few drops of the paint to the top of the wart, verruca, corn or
? avoid spreading onto surrounding healthy skin;
? allow each drop to dry for a few minutes before applying the next drop.
E. If the treated area is on the sole of the foot, cover it with an
adhesive plaster to help prevent the virus from spreading elsewhere. Treated areas need not be covered.
F. Always replace the cap of the bottle tightly after use.
G. Repeat steps A to F every evening, after removing any plaster
from the previous day.
H. 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, see section 4 below);
? if the wart, verruca, corn or callus has not disappeared after twelve weeks of treatment
tell your doctor or pharmacist.
