What is Bazuka Extra Strength Treatment Gel?
Bazuka Extra Strength Treatment Gel is a max strength treatment for several skin problems, such as:
- Corns and Calluses (Hardening of the skin)
It works with the solution, containing the active ingredient salicylic acid, going into the pores of the skin and breaking down the infected part. It also forms a protective barrier which prevents the spread of the virus.
What is the difference between Bazuka Extra Strength Treatment Gel and Bazuka Extra Strength Gel?
Both the Extra Strength Treatment Gel and Gel contain the same active ingredient, 26% salicylic acid but Treatment does not require approval from a pharmacist to buy. The Treatment Gel also comes in a 6g tube, whereas the pharmacy only Gel is a 5g tube.
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 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.
Who is Bazuka Extra Strength Treatment Gel suitable for?
This Bazuka gel is suitable for adults and children over the age of 2 needing relief from a skin problem that it can treat. It is not suitable for anyone who is allergic to any of the ingredients contained in the gel.
How do I use Bazuka Gel?
You should only use Bazuka once a day, usually in the evening. You use it by applying a thin coating, only one or two drops, onto thoroughly washed and dried skin, this helps in reducing the spread of infection. Once put on, leave the gel to dry for 2-3 minutes. Then, the following evening, remove the white patch of dried gel and reapply it following the same procedure.
