How long does it take for Salactol Wart Paint 10ml to work?
Salactol Wart Paint 10ml is a topical skin product that helps to remove warts and verrucas. Salactol contains salicylic acid, which is a keratolytic agent that works by breaking down the outer layers of the skin and softening the affected area.
In general, it could take several weeks of consistent use for Salactol to effectively remove warts and verrucas. Make sure to follow the instructions carefully and apply the wart paint properly to maximise the effectiveness, and be aware that Salactol isn't a cure for warts or verrucas and they may come back after treatment – so you can always speak to our pharmacists if you need any further treatment.
What causes warts?
Warts are benign growths that can develop on the skin as a result of infection with a type of virus called human papillomavirus (HPV). They're contagious and can be transmitted through direct skin-to-skin contact or by touching contaminated surfaces or objects. Warts are more common in children and teenagers, but they can occur in people of any age. Warts also can develop on any part of the body, but they're most commonly found on the hands, feet, and face. They are typically small and rough in texture, and they may be raised or flat. Warts can range in colour, from the same colour as the surrounding skin to a darker shade, and they may be smooth or rough.
Salicylic Acid 16.7% w/w; Lactic Acid 16.7% w/w.
Usage and Instructions
Suitable for adults, children, and adults aged 65+. Salactol Wart Paint should be applied once daily, usually at night when it has around 8 uninterrupted hours to go to work.
Be patient and consistent. It can take up to twelve (12) weeks for resistant lesions to disappear, so it is necessary to persevere with the treatment.
Start with clean skin, soak the affected area in warm water, and then pat dry.
Gently rub the surface of the wart, verruca, corn or callus with a pumice stone or manicure emery board to remove any hard skin.
Apply some Vaseline® on the normal skin surrounding the affected site.
Using the applicator provided, carefully apply a few drops of Salactol Wart Paint to the lesion, allowing each drop to dry before applying the next one. Take care to localise the application to the affected area.
Plantar warts should be covered with adhesive plaster. Leave for 24 hours. Repeat the procedure daily, after first removing any plaster.
Not to be used on or near the face, intertriginous region (where two skin areas touch or rub together) or anogenital region (near the anus or genitals) or by diabetics or individuals with impaired peripheral blood circulation.
Not to be used on moles, birthmarks, hairy warts or on any other skin lesions for which Salactol Wart Paint is not indicated.
Salactol Wart Paint is not to be used in cases of sensitivity to any of the ingredients.
Keep away from the eyes and mucous membranes.
Salactol Wart Paint should be applied carefully to the wart, verruca, corn or callus only, to avoid possible irritation of the surrounding normal skin.
Some mild, transient irritation may be expected, but in cases of more severe or persistent pain/irritation, the treatment should be suspended and/or discontinued.
Salactol Wart Paint may be an irritant to certain users, which in rare instances could cause a temporary blemish on the skin.
