What is Scholl Verruca Removal Gel?
Scholl Verruca Removal Gel is a treatment for verrucas which can also be used on warts, corns, or calluses. This product breaks down the hard skin of verrucas, warts, corns, or calluses helping to get rid of them more quickly. A simple and effective treatment which begins to work right away, Scholl Verruca Removal Gel also works as mild pain relief, so you can forget about that pesky verruca.
What are verrucas?
Verrucas are small lumps of skin which are similar to warts but appear on your feet. They have small black dots under the hard skin and can be painful to walk on, feeling like you’re stepping on a needle. They will usually go away on their own, but this can take a long time, leaving people searching for a more immediate solution.
How will Scholl Verruca Removal Gel treat my verrucas?
Scholl Verruca Removal Gel contains the active ingredients salicylic acid and camphor. Salicylic acid helps to break down the tough skin that make up verrucas, warts, corns or calluses until they can be gently removed. Camphor provides mild pain relief, easing discomfort caused by verrucas when you walk, and the pain caused by friction or pressure on warts, corns, or calluses.
Can I use this product if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?
Scholl Verruca Removal Gel is not suitable for use during pregnancy or if you’re breastfeeding. If you’re suffering with a wart, verruca, corn, or callus during this time, ask your doctor or pharmacist to recommend a suitable treatment for you.
Can I use this treatment if I have diabetes?
If you are diabetic, suffer with circulatory problems, or have neuropathy, you should not use this treatment unless you are told to do so by your doctor.
