Tips on getting rid of your verruca! (Bazuka + CUTICLE BLADE!)
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 8 February 2020
If you're reading this then you, or someone you know, is infected with the Human Papilopmavirus (HPV). And one of the way this guy displays itself, is as a 'verruca' otherwise known as a 'wart'. As a defence mechanism, the virus produces excessive skin (your skin) to coat itself. This skin grows and grows, the wart gets thicker and deeper. The defence mechanism is perfect as all this excess skin is essentially hiding the virus away from your immune system. You could go years and years with it, until your immune system finally takes notice of it. Is that a bad thing? No, not really. It just means the longer you have it, you risk the virus spreading to other parts of your foot, or even other body parts like your hand.
Most of the people with a verruca will leave them for years and years until either 1) they get sick of it or 2) it becomes painful/uncomfortable or 3) they just don't like the look of them.
So why am I telling you this? Because to get ahead of this thing, you need to understand it.
So we know that our immune system can't 'see' the virus. So how do we get it to see it? Well, with Bazuka which is essentially an acid, it will 'burn' the dead skin cells away, allowing (eventually), your immune system to see the exposed virus. Does this hurt? No it doesn't. Take care in the areas you put the acid, only coating the verruca itself. If you put it on healthy skin, worst case scenario you'll feel a little sting, easily rectifiable by wiping it away.
Now remember, this virus has created a coat of skin so to maximise the effect this acid will have on the virus, you want to shed some of this dead, excessive skin coating, away. And there's numerous ways you can do this. 1) take a hot bath, this weakens the skin. 2) Once completely dry, you could use something like a foot file to file this skin away. In my opinion a CUTICLE blade is much better, you get more skin off quicker and you don't get all those tiny 'saw dust' like skin particles. 3) THEN apply the Bazuka gel. Wait until it has dried, you're good to go. Ensure you wash your hands afterwards as the virus could be on your hands and if you have an open wound or are prone to biting your nails/skin, you're just asking for a hand wart!
They key to all of the above is CONSISTENCY. You can't really afford to skip an evening of this as it allows the virus to proliferate and grow that barrier coating back very quickly, again concealing it from your immune system.
Another tip - you may see on some reviews that you'll see some 'black seeds' and that these 'seeds' are the 'root of the verruca' - this is a highly annoying statement as they're simply old capillaries. if you're seeing them though, that's good as it means you're pretty close, if not, at, the virus itself, so means you've gotten rid of a good portion of excess skin!
When it's the next evening, you'll see that your foot, where the verruca is, will have a thick white coating. This is the treatment. Before applying it again, do make sure you get most of this off, otherwise you're just treating a hard layer of gel and not the virus!
Good luck, patience and consistency is key! This could take several weeks or even months so be prepared for that.
