Cleanoderm lotion contains Salicylic acid and Lactic acid for the treatment of warts. Warts are a viral disease in the surface skin layer. Topically applied salicylic acid is keratolytic. The keratolytic activity results from solubilisation of the intercellular ground substance in the stratum corneum and shedding of the scales which are bound by it. Salicylic acid acts by achieving a slow, painless destruction of the thickened upper layer of skin. Lactic acid enhances the activity of salicylic acid as well as having antiseptic properties.
Directions for Use: First soak the affected area in warm water for about 5 minutes. Dry thoroughly. Apply appropriate lotion on affected area. Unless your hands are being treated, be sure to wash your hands after each application.
