Ooops sorry for shouting in the title.
So attached is a photo of my 12 year olds toe.
Been treating it wih bazooka for weeks think it's a good job. But are we doing d something wrong. Putting bazooka ok daily and next day she gets to gleefully pic it off??
Whys it still here!!?

Should say it looks flat but it's actually raised by about 2cm

I would leave it on a few days before picking off the bazuka. Are you putting enough on? It normally leaves a white top coat on the verruca. That doesn't look like it's being burnt away at all

Raised by 2cm??!

I'm assuming mm not cm or that would be an impressive verruca!

This is what you need.

Takes us anything between 1 and 4 applications, but you get a very satisfying lump of warty stuff come away, with nice soft skin underneath.

I don't bother with Bazooka any more.

Life, that link doesn't work I'm afraid. And I'm keen to see it because I have had a verruca for several years and am keen to get rid of it...

Please, please, please what is the product that you're linking to? I couldn't get the link to work but DD has a verruca that needs treating. TIA

Thanks for screenshot. I have had two freeze treatments at GP with zero effect. I've tried various bazooka type treatments, some Moroccan ointment. Not sure an over the counter freezing treatment is going to work versus the GP freeze treatment?

I've also had freeze treatment at GP that did not work, yet this product does work. Perhaps because GP is one-off, whereas this one you can keep repeating at 2w intervals until it drops off.

Have you tried gaffer tape or banana peel? I've hear both remedies work, but never tried either.

Oh thank you.
I'm a bit of an exaggerator but it's a good 1cm at least. It's annoying her when she walks.
Will try the boots freeze thing
Thanks

Ooh, how many treatments do you get out of one pack?

Haven't tried out the gaffer tape. Can't help but feel bit silly at the idea of having a piece of duck tape on my foot...
