What is Bazuka Extra Strength Gel?
Bazuka Extra Strength Gel is a form of treatment that uses the active ingredient salicylic acid to form a protective barrier that prevents the spreading of the wart and verruca virus while working to kill it. It also works against corns and calluses by softening the skin hardened by the infection, allowing it to be removed by a pumice stone or emery board.
What are warts and verrucas?
Warts and verrucas are both growths that appear on the skin as a result of a virus. Warts generally appear on the hands and are easily recognisable thanks to the rough appearance on the surface of the skin. Verrucas mostly appear on the foot and are visible because of the white ring that appears around them. Verrucas can be painful.
If left untreated, warts and verrucas can spread, on the body as well as to another person.
What are corns and calluses?
Corns and calluses are both hard, thick pieces of skin that have been caused by friction. Mainly due to poorly fitting footwear. They can also sometimes appear on the hands.
