  • Adults, including the elderly and children 2 years and over:

    Apply Bazuka Extra Strength Gel to your verruca, wart, corn or callus, once every day, usually in the evening. Repeat the following daily treatment routine until your verruca, wart, corn or callus has disappeared.

    • Soak the affected area in warm water for 2 to 3 minutes. Dry the area thoroughly with your own towel (to avoid cross-infection).
    • Remove the protective yellow cap, leaving the white nozzle attached to the tube.
    • Carefully apply a thin coating (one or two drops) of the gel to the top of the verruca wart, corn or callus, and allow it to dry for a few minutes to form a small white patch which sticks to the skin and is water-resistant.
    • There is no need to cover it with a sticking plaster.
    • Take care to avoid the gel spreading onto surrounding healthy skin, as this may cause inflammation.
    • Every evening for the next week, carefully peel or pick off the white patch of dried gel from the verruca, wart, corn or callus.
    • Apply fresh gel by repeating steps 1 to 3.
    • Occasionally, if removal of the white patch proves difficult, carefully re-apply the gel directly over it and allow to dry. This should help thicken the white patch to assist removal. If necessary such re-application may be made on 2 or 3 successive days.

    Do not apply excessively. Always replace the cap after use. Do not fold the tube during use.


    Once every week, before applying fresh gel, gently rub the verruca, wart, corn or callus with the emery board provided, or with a pumice stone. Whatever you use, in the case of a verruca or wart, remember not to let anyone else use it or they could get a verruca or wart as well.

    The length of treatment will vary according to the resistance and size of the verruca, wart, corn or callus. Some may be resolved in a relatively short time but successful treatment of certain verrucas and warts can sometimes take up to 12 weeks, so you must continue and not give up until the verruca, wart, corn or callus has disappeared (unless irritation occurs).

    At the end of treatment, if the white patch is difficult to remove, it may be allowed to remain on the skin until if sheds.

    • If you accidentally apply Bazuka Gel to normal skin, wipe it off straight away with a tissue, and, if necessary, wash the area.

Bazuka Extra Strength Gel FAQs

  • Bazuka Extra Strength Gel is used to treat:

    • Warts
    • Verrucas
    • Corns
    • Calluses
  • The active ingredient in Bazuka Extra Strength Gel is Salicylic Acid, which is a type of medicine known as a Keratolytic.

  • Salicylic acid works by breaking down a substance called keratin. Keratin is a protein that helps to form the skin’s structure. Breaking down keratin will result in the shedding of skin cells from the affected area. When applied to a wart, verruca, corn or callus, salicylic acid will, over time, remove the damaged skin, allowing for new healthy skin to grow in its place.
