Instructions for a Bazuka Verruca

Updated February 21, 2017

Verrucas, a term for warts occurring on the foot's soles, are also known as "plantar warts". Skin contact spreads the contagious warts, which are the result of an infection called the Human Papilloma Virus. Verrucas tend to go away with time, but use of treatment gels like Bazuka will make them go away much faster than simply exercising patience.

Soak your foot in warm water between two and three minutes. Then dry your foot with a towel.

Apply enough Bazuka gel to coat only the verruca, keeping the skin around the wart from making contact with the gel, and wait for the gel to dry.

Remove the dry gel from the verruca the following night and reapply the gel.

Continue applying new gel every night and rub the wart with an emery board once a week before applying new gel.

Repeat for 12 weeks until the verruca disappears.


If you end up getting gel onto the regular skin, wipe the gel off with a tissue or wash the skin. To avoid getting verrucas, Bazuka recommends wearing shoes in common areas like communal showers and changing rooms as well as never sharing towels.


Side effects from Bazuka Gel can include tingling, irritation and discomfort. Use of Bazuka should cease if the intensity of side effects increase. If the verruca does not go away after 12 weeks, see a doctor about it.
