USES: Some brands of this product are used on the skin to treat common skin and foot (plantar) warts, while other brands are used to remove corns and calluses.This product contains 2 main ingredients. Salicylic acid is a keratolytic. It belongs to the same class of drugs as aspirin (salicylates). It works by breaking down the thick top layer of skin and increasing the amount of moisture in the skin. It causes the wart, corn, or callus to gradually peel off. Flexible collodion works by forming a protective coating over the treated area. It helps to keep the area clean and also keeps the salicylic acid and moisture in contact with the skin.This product should not be used on the face or on moles, birthmarks, warts with hair growing from them, or genital/anal warts.If you are self-treating with this medication, it is important to read the package instructions carefully before you start using this product to be sure it is right for you.
