Getting rid of embarrassing verrucas and warts isn't always easy but you can speed up the process with the use of Bazuka Gel. This proven and effective gel is able to provide fast and efficient relief from these problems, enabling you to get back on track quickly and without fuss.
Bazuka Gel is a uniquely formulated product which dries on the affected areas to form a protective barrier that is water resistant. This means that the infection is less likely to spread and there is no need to mess around with plasters. This gel contains salicyclic acid to get rid of the skin tissue that is infection, which in turn helps to get rid of the virus.
Bazuka gels form a water seal barrier and do not need to be covered with a plaster. If you have warts on your face, genitals or if they itch or bleed then medical advice should be sought before use.

*Prescription medicines are supplied subject to a medical consultation at the discretion of a doctor.

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

Apply Bazuka 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.

Not everyone will experience side effects when they use Bazuka Gel, however if you do they can include: 

  • A slight tingling sensation and/or some mild tenderness. 
  • In rare cases, this may appear as a temporary blemish on the skin. 
  • If you experience undue pain or irritation, stop the treatment and ask your doctor for advice. 
  • If you accidentally apply Bazuka Gel to normal skin, wipe it off straight away with a tissue, and, if necessary, wash the area. 

If you are concerned about these effects, or if the product affects you in any other way, stop using it and talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

Unsure about a treatment?
Ask our medical team for impartial information and advice about any treatment we provide or medical condition that we treat before you buy.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is Bazuka gel safe for Diabetics?

    No. Bazuka should not be used by diabetic patients or by anyone suffering from poor peripheral blood circulation.

  • Is Bazuka gel safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding?

    Pregnant and breastfeeding women should seek advice from their doctor or pharmacist before using this medicine.

  • Does Bazuka gel have age restrictions?

    Bazuka gel should not be used on infants under two years old. If treating a child between the ages of two and twelve years, an adult is required to supervise.

    When treating young children, extra care should be taken to apply Bazuka gel to the affected area, avoiding excessive use that can cause irritation.

    Bazuka gel can be bought without a prescription. It is designed to treat adults, the elderly, and children over two years of age.

  • Am I able to swim whilst using Bazuka gel?

    Yes. If applied correctly and allowed enough time to dry. Bazuka gel is formulated with water-resistant properties, which will coat the verruca with an adhering protective film. This will act like an adhesive waterproof plaster, which will help reduce the risk of transmitting the infection.

  • Can Bazuka gel harm a baby if the mother is using it on her hands?

    Once Bazuka gel has completely dried on the skin, there is no risk of transferring it to the baby’s skin. However, as a precaution, it is still advised to avoid hand contact with the baby’s mouth and eyes.

  • Can Bazuka gel be used if the warts are on or near the face, breasts, armpits, bottom, or genitals?

    No. Bazuka gel should not be used on the face or on other areas of the body where there is skin-to-skin contact, such as the armpits, breasts, and genitals.

    If warts are present in these areas, a doctor should be consulted so that an appropriate method of treatment can be recommended.  

  • Can Bazuka be used on a wart that has a hair growing out of it?

    Hairs are not normally able to grow through warts. Instances of this would require further investigation. Under these circumstances, it is advised to check with your GP.

  • How long can Bazuka gel be kept after it has been opened?

    Providing the cap is tightly replaced after use, Bazuka gel should be effective until the expiry date printed on the packet. Bazuka gel should be stored at room temperature (not exceeding 25°C).

  • What should I do if I get Bazuka gel in my eyes?

    If Bazuka gel accidently comes into contact with your eyes, contact your doctor or a hospital straight away, Be sure to take the Bazuka tube with you for your doctor to refer to. 

  • Has Bazuka gel been tested on animals?

    No. It wasn’t necessary to test Bazuka gel on animals in order to market the product here in The UK. All the active ingredients were already well established in other pharmaceutical products, which negated the need for animal testing.

  • Does Bazuka gel contain any animal derivatives?

    None of the ingredients in Bazuka gel are derived from animals.

  • Does Bazuka gel contain any nut derivatives?

    None of the ingredients in Bazuka gel comes from nuts. In the very unlikely event of signs of hypersensitivity, or if there is a known allergy to any of the ingredients in Bazuka gel, then you should cease application immediately and seek medical advice.

    Yes. Although as a precaution, ensure the room/area is well-ventilated during application.

  • Is Bazuka gel safe to take if you are using medication for High Blood Pressure?

    Yes. No extra precautions are necessary.

  • Can I use Bazuka gel if I am lactose intolerant?

    Yes. Being intolerant to lactose will have no effect on using a lactic acid treatment like Bazuka gel.

  • How much Aspirin is absorbed into my blood system from using Bazuka gel?

    None. Bazuka gel does not contain aspirin. If you are in doubt about whether to use Bazuka gel, you should seek advice from the doctor or pharmacist.

  • Can you use Bazuka gel if you are taking Warfarin?

    Yes, providing you do not use the gel excessively

  • If I am unsure about my diagnosis, why is it important to check with a doctor or pharmacist first?

    Some skin problems can sometimes resemble warts and verrucas. Although this is rare, such skin problems will require specialist treatment from a doctor.
