Description

Salatac Gel

Salatac Gel treats warts, verrucas, corns and calluses in adults, children and the elderly. It contains the active ingredients salicylic acid and lactic acid which work by softening the hard skin growth, making it easier to remove with a pumice stone or emery board and helping to kill the virus that causes warts and verrucas.

Salatac Gel is supplied in a tube with a special applicator for precise application and each pack includes an emery board.

Directions

Use it only on warts, verrucas, corns and calluses on sites for which it is recommended. Follow these steps once every day, usually in the evening. Carry on using the gel in this way until the wart, verruca, corn or callus disappears.

Adults, children and the elderly:
  • Soak the affected area in warm water for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Dry the area thoroughly, using your own towel if you have a wart or verruca (this will help stop the infection spreading to other people).
  • Taking care to avoid squeezing the tube, remove the protective cap, leaving the nozzle attached to the tube.
  • Carefully apply a thin coating (one or two drops) of the gel to the top of the wart, verruca, corn or callus only:
    • avoid the gel spreading to the surrounding healthy skin;
    • allow the gel to dry for a few minutes to form a small white patch that sticks to the treated area and is water resistant;
    • there is no need to cover the treated area with a sticking plaster;
    • always replace the protective cap after use.
  • The next evening, carefully peel or pick off the white patch of dried gel from the wart, verruca, corn or callus and apply fresh gel as described in steps above. If removal of the white patch is difficult, carefully re-apply the gel directly over it and leave it to dry. This will thicken the white patch and make it easier to remove.
  • Once every week, before applying fresh gel, gently rub the wart, verruca, corn or callus with the emery board provided, or a pumice stone. If you are treating a wart or verruca, do not let anyone else use the emery board or pumice stone as the infection may spread to them.
  • The length of treatment will vary depending on the size and resistance of the wart, verruca, corn or callus. Some may go in a relatively short time but some warts and verrucas can require up to 12 weeks treatment before they disappear. It is important that you do not give up on the treatment until the wart, verruca, corn or callus has disappeared. If the wart, verruca, corn or callus has not disappeared after twelve weeks of treatment ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
  • At the end of treatment, if the white patch is difficult to remove, you can leave it because it will eventually fall off by itself.

Ingredients

  • Active Ingredients: Salicylic acid 12.0% w/w and lactic acid 4.0% w/w.
  • Other Ingredients: Camphor, pyroxylin, ethanol and ethyl acetate.

Cautions

  • If you are unsure whether you have a wart, verruca, corn or callus that is suitable for treatment with Salatac Gel, ask your doctor or pharmacist before starting treatment.
  • Salatac Gel can be used during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. The ingredients have been in widespread use in this and similar preparations for many years, without reports of problems. However, safety trials have not been conducted.
  • If the gel accidentally gets onto normal skin, wipe it off straight away with a tissue, and, if necessary, wash the area.
  • If the gel accidentally gets into the eyes or mouth, it may cause damage. Rinse the eyes or mouth with plenty of water. If rinsing one eye, take care to avoid washing product into the other eye. Then seek urgent hospital attention.
  • If you inhale a lot of the vapour from the gel it may make you feel light-headed. If this happens, get plenty of fresh air.
  • Avoid spillage as this may cause damage to you, your clothing and your possessions.
  • Do not fold the tube because this may damage it and make it leak.
  • Salatac Gel is volatile and highly flammable. Do not use it near flames or ignition sources (e.g. burning cigarettes or anything else that might ignite it).
Do not use Salatac Gel:
  • If you are allergic (hypersensitive) to salicylic acid, lactic acid or any of the other ingredients of Salatac Gel.
  • Anywhere on or near your face, armpits, breasts, bottom or genital (sex) area.
  • On birthmarks, moles, warts with hairs growing from them, or any other spots.
  • If you are diabetic or suffer from poor blood circulation to your hands or feet.
