Warts and verrucas are caused by a type of virus resulting in small excessive growths of skin
- Warts appear often on fingers, or the back of the hands. They can be identified by the rough “cauliflower-like” appearance of the surface.
- Verrucas are often only on the sole of the foot. They can be painful and appear as small white ring of skin with a black dot in the centre.
The virus is very infectious and the warts and verrucas are likely to spread, particularly if left untreated. It can also be transferred from one person to another.
Corns and calluses have a hard, thick pads of skin and are more likely to appear on the feet but can also occur on the hands. They are caused by pressure and friction such as to poorly fitting shoes.
Salatac contains the active ingredients salicylic acid and lactic acid which effectively treats warts, verruca’s, corns and calluses by softening the skin. Once softened it can be removed by pumice stone or emery board.
