Plaster.

4. Clinical Particulars 4.1 Therapeutic Indications

For the treatment of common warts on the feet and hands.

4.2 Posology And Method Of Administration

Adults and children: Select a medicated disc from those supplied which best fits the size of the wart. Leave medicated disc in place on wart for 48 hours and repeat treatment. Continue treatment for up to twelve weeks if necessary. No distinction is made between age groups. Neonates: neonates should not be treated.

4.3 Contraindications

Not to be used by diabetics or those with severe circulatory disorders, except following a doctor's permission and recommendation. Not to be used if the skin around the wart is inflamed or broken.

4.8 Undesirable Effects

Local irritation may occur.

4.9 Overdose

None stated.

5. Pharmacological Properties 5.1 Pharmacodynamic Properties

Pharmacotherapeutic group: keratolytics. Mechanism of action: the mechanism of action of salicylic acid has not been established. Pharmacodynamic effects: Salicylates have analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antipyretic properties, much of which is ascribed to an inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis. However, the relevant pharmacodynamic effect of salicylic acid for this product is its 'keratolytic' action. The mechanism of this effect has been investigated in animals and in man, and appears to be due to a reduction of intercellular cohesion and/or increasing endogenous hydration. The exact mechanism of action however has not yet been elucidated.

5.2 Pharmacokinetic Properties

Salicylic acid can be absorbed following topical application. Plasma salicylate is largely protein-bound and is metabolised by oxidation and conjugation with some excreted unchanged. The elimination of salicylate follows first-order kinetics with a half-life of about four hours except with high systemic doses which result in saturation of the elimination mechanism.

5.3 Preclinical Safety Data

Salicylic acid has a low acute toxicity with oral LD50 values of 480mg/kg in the mouse and 891mg/kg in the rat. It is a dermal irritant but systemic toxicity from application of Scholl Verruca Removal System is extremely unlikely because of the small quantities applied.

6. Pharmaceutical Particulars 6.1 List Of Excipients

Polyvinyl Alkyl Ether (Low Molecular Weight); Polyvinyl Alkyl Ether (High Molecular Weight); Titanium Dioxide; Liquid Paraffin; 4,4-thio-bis-2-tert-butyl-5-methylphenol; Red Iron Oxide; Black Iron Oxide; Backing material; Twill Cloth; Polyethylene foam-coated plaster (closed cell).

6.2 Incompatibilities

Not relevant.

6.3 Shelf Life

Shelf life of the product as packed for sale: 3 years. Shelf life after first opening the container: 6 weeks.

6.4 Special Precautions For Storage

Store below 25oC.

6.5 Nature And Contents Of Container

These may be composed of an ecru coloured twill cloth for the standard product or tan coloured closed cell polyethylene foam coated plasters for the washproof variant. Both types of plaster are coated with a pressure sensitive adhesive.

6.6 Special Precautions For Disposal And Other Handling

Topical acne agents


A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.

Topical acne agents are applied on the skin to treat mild acne. They contain medicines, which control acne on the surface but may not treat the actual cause beneath the skin. Topical acne formulations either contain antibiotics that destroy or inhibit the growth of bacteria that form the pustules or they contain agents that help renew the skin more quickly and therefore reduce acne.

Seborrheic Dermatitis and Psoriasis

Salicylic acid is used for self-medication to control seborrheic dermatitis of the body and scalp, psoriasis of the body and scalp, dandruff, and other scaling dermatoses.a f l m o q r s

Cream, lotion, and gel (6% salicylic acid) used to aid in the exfoliation of dry, scaly skin associated with psoriasis.l o p

Hyperkeratosis

Salicylic acid is used topically as self-medication for its keratolytic and caustic effect in the removal of common and plantar warts;a d h j l also used to remove corns and calluses.a e i n o p

Salicylic acid is used for treatment of localized hyperkeratosis that occurs on the palms and soles.a l o

Tinea Versicolor

Salicylic acid is used in combination with an antifungal (sodium thiosulfate) for the treatment of tinea versicolor (Malassezia furfur) infection.g

Salicylic Acid Dosage and Administration General

Consult a clinician prior to initiating self-medication for a condition that covers a large area of the body.f m q r

Administration Topical Administration
