Bazuka Treatment Gel, which can be bought in a supermarket, is not recommended for infants less than 2 years old. The treatment of children between 2 years and 12 years must be under the supervision of an adult.
However, Bazuka Gel and Bazuka Extra Strength Gel can only be bought from a pharmacy where you can confirm the diagnosis with the pharmacist. They can be used by adults, the elderly and children over 2 years. Children under 12 years should be treated by an adult, and treatment of infants less than 2 years is not recommended. In practice, very young children are unlikely to suffer from verrucas, corns or calluses until they are old enough to walk.
Particularly when treating young children, special care should always be taken to apply the gels carefully to the verruca, wart, corn or callus and avoid excessive use - which may cause irritation. Children's skin tends to be more delicate than that of adults.
Yes. When applied correctly and allowed to dry, Bazuka gels are formulated to provide an adhering water-resistant protective film. This is designed to simulate the role of an adhesive, waterproof plaster - helping reduce the risk of transmission of infection.
Verrucas are frequently contracted from treading on infected skin debris, typically on the floor of gyms, changing rooms, or swimming pool surrounds. So the risk of spreading infection is reduced if infected lesions are covered (by Bazuka gel film, sock or plaster), but can be completely avoided if the verrucas are properly treated and got rid of.
No. Bazuka gels are not suitable for use on the face or where there is skin-to-skin contact such as the armpit, breasts, bottom or genital (sex) areas.
In these cases a doctor should be consulted to confirm the diagnosis and if appropriate, recommend the method of treatment.
