Bazuka Extra Strength Gel
Advantages: Really works.
It came as no surprise to me then, when my little darlings came home with verrucas on the soles of their feet. Now verrucas completely freak me out, not least because they are acually flattened WARTS, and if not treated, they are going to spread and end up everywhere. I mean, who wants a wart on the end of their nose or some other prominent place? These things need dealing with immediately.
There are loads of methods available today for treating warts and verrucas. The natural method- sticking a piece of banana peel on the skin, or maybe a dab of tea tree oil? Doctors will freeze away warts, which I can tell you from experience is really painful and doesn't always work. You can also buy "freeze your own wart off" kits from the chemist, but they are totally useless.
In my experience, the ONLY thing I have ever found that works on warts and verrucas is bazuka gel, preferably the extra strong variety shown here. For £5 from any good chemist, you get a box containing a tube of gel, plus instructions and a little sandpaper file.
Basically, you apply a small amount of the clear gel daily to the affected area. It doesn't dry very quickly, and takes a couple of minutes to turn white and harden. This seals the verruca with a water resistant coating and prevents it spreading to the outside environment. This makes it safe to swim, shower, or do PE, safe in the knowledge that the virus won't spread. It is much more discreet than wearing a verruca sock!
The active ingredients in the gel soon get to work at destroying the verruca. Every few days you need to gently file away the dead skin, before applying a new layer of gel. This works the verruca away bit by bit. Removal is quick, usually whithin a couple of weeks. it is very effective.
Bazuka is a cheap, painless way to get rid of these nasty growths. I always have a tube in the first aid cupboard to enable quick treatment on detection of verrucas. They are not tested on animals, nor contain any animal derived ingredients. The main active ingredient is salycilic acid.
The tube will last until the expiry date if stored properly in a cupboard with the cap screwed on tightly. The product should not be used on areas other than the hands and feet without medical advice.
Summary: This is simply the best wart removal product on the market.
