Duoplant Gel is indicated for the treatment and removal of common and plantar warts. The common wart is easily recognized by its rough and cauliflower-like appearance on the surface. The plantar wart is recognized by its location on the sole of the foot.
Dosage and administration
The drug is applied topically.
Before applying the product, wash the affected area with warm water. Dry the skin with a clean towel, protect healthy skin with petroleum jelly or some other fat.
Apply a thin layer of the gel daily directly to the wart. The product should be carefully applied avoiding contact with the normal skin surrounding the wart. The treated area should be allowed to dry.
Then cover the wart with an adhesive strip without pressure. Normally, a noticeable improvement must occur during the first two to four weeks of therapy. The best results are presented after 12 weeks of use.
Duoplant should not be used in patients with hypersensitivity to salicylic acid or any of the product components. The gel should not be used by diabetics or patients with poor blood circulation. Do not use it on moles, birthmarks or warts with hair.
A localized irritating reaction will occur if the gel is applied to the normal skin surrounding the wart. If this occurs, temporarily discontinue the use of Duoplant Gel. When resuming treatment, the medicine should be applied directly to the wart.
Excessive topical use of salicylic acid may result in irritation, particularly of normal skin. Apply treatment with topical emollients, as required. In case of accidental application to eyes and mucous membranes, rinse them with water, remove precipitated collodion and continue rinsing them with water for an additional 15 minutes. Accidental ingestion may cause nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Treatment: administer large amounts of water and antacids if required.
Salicylic acid can enhance the effect of other keratolytic. It can also interact with preparations containing scrubs (benzoyl peroxide, resorcinol, sulfur) or with topical preparations containing alcohol.
