Advantages Eventually works.
Disadvantages Takes a long time.
I have always prided myself on having nice feet. Well, within reason. They are your average size 6 and whilst not outstandingly attractive (because feet aren`t), they have always been in good condition. My mum has frequent visits from the podiatrist to treat corns, hard skin, calluses etc. I had never had any problems with mine. I could never really understand how people could require so much podiatry input (she is not the only one). I don`t paticularly look after my feet, just apply some lotion occassionally, I can wear any shoes I like (occassionally) and consistently have no problems, until a few months ago. Shock horror, I found not one, not two, but THREE verrucas.
I have heard the familiar phrase many a time, Bazuka that verruca on TV adverts. Bazuka gel is used to treat verrucas, warts and can also be used on corns and calluses. Because this catchy phrase sprung to mind, I decided to try Bazuka, I chose the extra strength gel. After soaking the foot for 2-3 minutes in warm water (or hand), dry and apply the gel. One to two drops should be sufficient. This sticks to the skin and forms a waterproof patch so there is no need to cover. Every evening for 2 or 3 days, you need to pick off the white patch and reapply. There is an emery board supplied and this should be used weekly to file off the hard skin. The length of time for treatment varies apparently. I used the extra strength gel which is in a yellow box, the normal strength gel is in a blue box. They each contain 5g. The blue one is cheaper, but they both range in price, it does say pharmacy only on the extra strength, but it can be bought on line it would appear. I bought mine from Boots. Prices range from £4 something to £6 something for the extra strength.
You are advised not to get the Bazuka on healthy skin as it may cause inflammation, that is why only a small amount is required. It did sting me a little bit when it got onto my healthy skin by my toes. I was not concerned though as it did not last long.
