Description

Cuplex gel contains the active ingredients salicylic acid and lactic acid. These are medicines called keratolytics. They work by breaking down keratin, a protein that forms part of the skin structure.

The gel is applied directly to warts, verrucas, calluses and corns. It causes the skin cells in the affected area to soften and shed. It can take up to three months of treatment for the affected skin to be removed completely. If successful, the new skin that grows underneath will be healthy.

Ingredients

salicyclic Acid 11% w/w and Lactic Acid 4% w/w. Also contains collodion, colophony, venice turpentine and ethanol (96%)

Usage

To use Cuplex Gel, follow these instructions once every day, usually in the evening. Carry on using the gel in this way until the callus, corn, verruca or wart disappears. 1) Soak the callus, corn, wart or verruca in warm water for 2-3 minutes. 2) Dry the area thoroughly with your own towel - this towel should only be used by you for the affected sites only. 3) Carefully apply 1 or 2 drops of Cuplex Gel to the callus, corn, verruca or wart and allow to dry over the surface. It will form a water resistant clear, brown film over the affected site. 4) Take care to avoid spreading onto normal healthy surrounding skin. If you use too much gel, wipe off any excess with a tissue and if necessary wash the area. No sticking plaster is required. 5) The next evening remove the clear brown gel and reapply directly over the affected area and leave to dry. 7) Once every week, rub away the corn, callus, verruca or wart surface carefully with an emery board or pumice stone. Do not let any one else use the emery board or pumice stone to avoid spreading infection to them. 8) Replace the cap on the Cuplex Gel tube tightly and wash hands thoroughly after use. It is important that you use Cuplex Gel regularly and correctly every night, the length of treatment will depend on the size and resistance of the corn, callus, verruca or wart - it will take between 6-12 weeks for most to disappear. If the con, callus, verruca or wart gets worse or does not disappear within 12 weeks of treatment, ask your GP for advice.
