Avoca’s Complete Wart & Verruca Treatment is a quick and reliable method for getting rid of persistent warts and verrucas. Avoca will target the wart or verruca directly, using silver nitrate.
The active ingredient is contained within a caustic pencil. This is applied onto the wart or verruca. Once the product has dried, the treated layer of tissue is removed with the emery board provided.
If instructions are followed correctly, Avoca will remove most warts and verrucas within one week of treatment.
Before applying silver nitrate to the skin, you will first need to dissolve it in a small amount of water. Only one drop is required. Put one drop in a non-absorbent container. Patients most commonly use a drinking glass at a slight angle. Swirl the tip of the caustic pencil in this drop for roughly 20 seconds. This will allow the active ingredient to dissolve in the water. Keep this water away from any absorbent materials, as it may cause damage or discolouration.
Once the tip is wet, touch it very gently to your wart or verruca. Take care as the tip will break if you apply too much pressure.
Once the area is dry, some tissue will fall away on its own. Use the emery board provided to remove the surface layer of the treated area.
This process can be repeated until the wart or verruca has been removed.
Not everyone will experience side effects when they use Avoca. However, if you, or if the product affects you in any other way, stop using it and talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
