What are Carnation Verruca Care Plasters?
Carnation Verruca Care Plasters offer effective relief from a verruca. While offering protection with the padding in the plasters, these verruca plasters also contain the active ingredient salicylic acid which works to break down the verruca.
How do these plasters help to treat verrucas?
The plasters contain the active ingredient salicylic acid, which helps to break down the verruca on the skin. The plaster also covers the area of infection, preventing it from becoming infected more and also protecting the skin while it heals.
Who are these plasters suitable for?
These plasters are suitable for anyone over the age of 6 looking for relief from a verruca. If you are allergic to salicylic acid or suffer from diabetes, then do not use these plasters. If under the age of 6, or have severe circulatory problems, then consult a doctor before using.
How should I use these verruca plasters?
The set of plasters include four plasters that you apply over the course of two days. There is a final plaster that is applied after those and is left for as long necessary. The verruca should have gone after two weeks.
