Cuplex Gel is a topical treatment for verrucas, warts, corns & calluses. Cuplex Gel works by forming an elastic, waterproof seal over the affected area, avoiding unsighltly dressings and enabling swimming to continue without restriction. The active ingredients salicylic acid and lactic acid work by sofetening the hard skin growth, making it easier to remove with a pumice stone or emery board and help to kill the virus that causes warts and verrucas. Cuplex Gel is suitable for use by adults, the elderly and children over 2 years. Children under 12 should be treated under supervision and treatment of infants under 2 years is not reccommended.

To use Cuplex Gel, follow these instructions once every day, usually in the evening. Carry on using the gel in this way until the callus, corn, verruca or wart disappears. 1) Soak the callus, corn, wart or verruca in warm water for 2-3 minutes. 2) Dry the area thoroughly with your own towel - this towel should only be used by you for the affected sites only. 3) Carefully apply 1 or 2 drops of Cuplex Gel to the callus, corn, verruca or wart and allow to dry over the surface. It will form a water resistant clear, brown film over the affected site. 4) Take care to avoid spreading onto normal healthy surrounding skin. If you use too much gel, wipe off any excess with a tissue and if necessary wash the area. No sticking plaster is required. 5) The next evening remove the clear brown gel and reapply directly over the affected area and leave to dry. 7) Once every week, rub away the corn, callus, verruca or wart surface carefully with an emery board or pumice stone. Do not let any one else use the emery board or pumice stone to avoid spreading infection to them. 8) Replace the cap on the Cuplex Gel tube tightly and wash hands thoroughly after use. It is important that you use Cuplex Gel regularly and correctly every night, the length of treatment will depend on the size and resistance of the corn, callus, verruca or wart - it will take between 6-12 weeks for most to disappear. If the con, callus, verruca or wart gets worse or does not disappear within 12 weeks of treatment, ask your GP for advice.
