Who can use Salactac Gel?
Salactac Gel can be used by adults and children.
Apply once daily, usually at night. Soak the area in warm water first to soften the skin and pat dry. Next, gently rub the surface of the affected area with a pumice stone or emery board to remove any hard skin. Using the applicator provided, carefully apply a few drops of Salactac to the lesion, allowing each drop to dry before applying the next one. Avoid contact with healthy skin. Plantar warts (also known as verrucas) should be covered with an adhesive plaster. Repeat the process daily and note that it can take up to 12 weeks for resistant lesions to disappear. Each day you should carefully remove the elastic film formed by the previous application before reapplying the gel.
