Verruca treatment tips:

  1. Using the emery board provided, remove the hard layer on the surface of the verruca.
  2. Make sure that only the tip of the pencil is introduced into the water droplet, it will last longer.
  3. Do not rub or press the pencil onto the verruca, just transfer the liquid onto it.
  4. Have plenty of tissues available to ensure that none of the liquid gets spilt on surrounding furniture or clothes to avoid staining.
  5. Dry the pencil tip with a tissue after each treatment, to avoid water getting trapped between the tip and the case.
