Warts and verrucas are small excessive skin growths caused by a type of virus called the human papillomavirus or HPV. Warts have a small cauliflower-like appearance and often occur on the fingers or on the back of the hands, while verrucas occur only on the sole of the foot.
Verrucas look like a small white ring of skin with a black dot in the centre and can be tender to the touch and very painful.
HPV is a highly infectious virus and when left untreated, warts and verrucas can grow and spread to other parts of your skin and even be transferred to other people. For this reason, it makes sense to nip it in the bud right away with a once a day treatment of Salactol Wart Paint.
Go to war on warts
Think of Salactol Wart Paint as your daily ‘war paint’. Here’s why it works so well. Its collodian base is a gel-like solution of nitrocellulose in a mixture of alcohol and ether. It’s so effective, that it's used chiefly in surgery, but is also ideal for coating things like warts, verrucas, corns and calluses.
The two types of acid contained in Salactol have been proven to work together to effectively treat and remove warts and verrucas. Both Salicyclic Acid and Lactic Acid are medicines called keratolytics. They work by breaking down keratin, a protein that forms part of the skin structure.
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.
1) Start with clean skin, soak the affected area in warm water, and then pat dry.
2) Gently rub the surface of the wart, verruca, corn or callus with a pumice stone or manicure emery board to remove any hard skin.
3) Apply some Vaseline® on the normal skin surrounding the affected site.
4) 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.
5) 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.
