Re: Best treatment for verrucas

Bazuka is good stuff.

What i don't recommend is cryosurgery - bloody painful and not always effective.

Re: Best treatment for verrucas

I did ring the GP surgery before posting but apparently they no longer do anything about them here so you have to be referred to hospital and the wait is nearly 2 years. I was hoping therefore to find a remedy that worked quicker than that

She's gone off to school with her duct tape in place and I spoke to the school nurse who is going to give her another bit of tape if that should fall off after PE. My husbands face said it all I think he thought I'd gone properly mad this time

Re: Best treatment for verrucas

I thought I had been fortunate enough to go through life without a verruca but managed to pick one up in my 40s

I tried a couple of over-the-counter creams & plasters without any success, but eventually shifted it with Bazuka cream
I don't know if it's still available, but there must be the latest generation of something similar on the market

A verruca is a viral infection that grows down into the skin
Apply the Bazuka regularly and faithfully
when the verruca becomes quite painful that means the virus has died, so then comes the fun part - squeeze it, and it erupts like a giant spot
Do this thoroughly till all the goo has come out. it leaves a hole that heals up very quickly

You could probably apply a dose of Bazuka, then top it off with some kind of tape or plaster to prevent the cream from being worn off
