So I've been using bazuca extra strength on DDS verruca for 4 days now.... is it supposed to bleed and look like this. She said it's really painful now. I'm reluctant to continental with tonight's treatment.

Don't do it. Get her to the doctors asap. That looks so painful poor mite. Sorry not to be much help. But my gut instinct is to stop all treatment. Get to your gp asap.

Stop!! Go to the gp.
Got rid of verrucas I both sons feet with over the counter stuff but it never made their feet sore like that.
Verrucas are buggers looks like you have really persevered

Bleeding doesn't sound good.

Whack some plasters on them to suffocate them.

Dd2's took months to go, dd1's weeks.

I'd go doc too.

I've just stuck a plaster on it and left it.

When she pulled off the white bazuca bit it just seemed to pull off a ton of skin.

Shes had them for years nothing has worked. We were just leaving them to go as the doctor said. But she got fed up so I bought this stuff.

It seems brutal!

Poor girl. I had a really bad verruca for years that nothing touched. I wouldn't go to the GP after bad experience as a child and in the end dug it out with some sharp implements blush
As others have said, definitely stop.

The two bottom areas look like just raw skin.
I'd take her to the GP to get them looked at.

Verrucas do bleed when treating and are sore.

Go and see a chiropodist and see if they will treat it, some don't as they are very contagious.

Do keep the foot dry, no swimming or putting foot in Bath for a while and use duct tape

It looks like the treatment has been getting onto normal skin - have you been using circular corn plasters while you apply it?

I really feel for her, I did about 3 years with about 10 verrucas on each feet, it was awful I was in a LOT of pain I tried everything even down to banana skins and garlic (I was desperate), then I bought a pair of ugg boots for comfort and like magic they vanished, but I really wouldn't put anything else on them without seeing your GP first, I never got any bleeding with mine but I did use to get a lot of skin coming off from around them when I used basucca ( sorry if I've spelt incorrect) too.

Rather than pull the white skin away it's better for DCs skin to use a pumice stone and slough the top layer away with circular movements. Take a few layers off every night and retreat with gel. Takes forever (treating DS for one now and expect it'll take at least 5 weeks).

Personally when I've had them I'm brutal and pull it all off fairly quickly. Gets rid of it within fortnight but painful and it will bleed.

Yes filing every night no picking!

No it definitely hasn't been getting on normal skin. The veruccas are huge answer very spread out.

I'll ģive it a few days to heal and try the filling method. Thanks all

Let it heal then use apple cider vinegar on cotton wool fixed on with tape overnight each night. After a day or two the dead skin can be filed or carefully scalpel led away before putting more apple cider vinegar.

It will take weeks, possibly a few months but you will see it improve in a few days. It doesn't damage the surrounding skin like the over the counter treatments do. (And we had tried just about everything on the market and had it done at the GP with no effect before doing the apple cider vinegar)

Keep treating for a few days after you think it has gone just to make sure. Sometimes, a couple more verrucas appear nearby as the verrucas seem to fight back against you treating them. But they do eventually go without damage to the delicate surrounding skin.
