About Bazuka Gel
Bazuka Gel is used in the treatment and eradication of hard areas of skin found on the hands and feet.
These can be classified as warts, verrucas, corns and calluses.
Verrucas and warts are small excessive growths of skin caused by viruses. Warts are ‘cauliflower’ like in appearance, occurring more commonly on the fingers and back of the hands. Verrucas appear as a small black dot encircled by a white ring. They are more commonly found on the souls or sides of the feet.
Verrucas and warts are highly infectious. They can spread to different areas of the body as well as between people if left untreated. If you think you might have a verruca or wart, it is advised that you don’t share shoes or towels to reduce the risk of transmission.
Corns and calluses are hard pads of skin formed by pressure and friction. This is usually as a result of poorly fitting shoes, however, they can also occur on the hands. Although not serious, these lesions can painful, uncomfortable and unsightly.
Bazuka Gel contains the active ingredients of salicylic acid and lactic acid. These chemicals soften hard skin making removal with pumice stone or emery board easier. They also help kill the virus which causes warts and verrucas.
Using Bazuka Gel
Bazuka gel should be applied nightly to lesions following the steps below:
- Soak the affected area in warm water for 2-3 minutes before drying thoroughly.
- One to two drops of gel should be applied to the lesion and left to dry. This will form a small white ‘film’ which sticks to the lesion and is water-resistant. No adhesive plaster is necessary.
- The following evening, carefully peel the dried white film away from the lesion and re-apply the gel as above.
If the white film is difficult to remove, re-apply the gel over it and leave for a second night. This will thicken the patch and make removal easier. Re-application over the white film may be required for two or three successive days before removal can be achieved.
- Once a week an emery board or pumice stone should be used on the lesion. Hard skin should be gently rubbed before re-applying the gel.
Treatment length can vary depending on the size of the lesion and how resistant it is to Bazuka Gel.
Treatment can take up to 12 weeks, therefore, it is important to be consistent and diligent with nightly applications. If after 12 weeks there is no improvement, contact your pharmacist or doctor for advice. Particularly resistant verrucas and warts may need more intensive treatments for removal.
Don’t worry if you forget to apply Bazuka Gel, continue with applications when you remember. Excessive breaks in treatment may lead to a longer duration of treatment.
Care should be taken to not apply the gel to any surrounding ‘healthy’ skin. Hands should also be washed before and after application.
If Bazuka Gel does get onto normal skin, wipe away with a tissue and wash the area if necessary.
You should not use Bazuka Gel if you suffer from diabetes or circulation problems - instead, contact your GP for treatment advice.
Bazuka Gel can be used by adults and children over the age of two years old. Application of the gel to children under the age of 12 should be carried out by an adult.
Salicylic acid and lactic acid are well-established substances and are used in combination routinely for the treatment of verrucas, warts, corns and calluses. This is due to their ability to soften hardened skin.
Bazuka Gel has been clinically proven to be an effective treatment of verrucas, warts, corns and calluses.
There are different formulations of Bazuka Gel available:
Bazuka Treatment Gel - contains the same ingredients as Bazuka Gel.
Bazuka Extra Strength Gel - contains a higher concentration of salicylic acid, used for more treatment-resistant lesions.
Corn plasters are available for corn treatment. These protect and cushion the corn against pressure and rubbing. Some may also contain the active ingredient salicylic acid to help remove the corn.
Warts and verrucas can be freeze-dried by either using a home treatment Bazuka Sub-Zero or by trained professionals. This is a more intense treatment and should only be used if other methods have failed.
Bazuka Sub Zero is based on cryotherapy treatments used by doctors and aims to freeze verrucas and warts from the core.
If really persistent, hard areas of skin can be manually removed by a podiatrist.
