What is Salicylic Acid 17% + Lactic Acid 17% Solution Watnil®
Fungal infections in the nails of hands and feet are quite common during the rainy season or among people who live in humid areas. Treating fungal infection of nails otherwise known as Onychomycosis is quite difficult as the conventional oral antifungal treatment has to be taken for a long duration of 6 – 9 months which causes systemic side effects that affect compliance. With the efficacious and innovative approach in the treatment of otherwise difficult to treat Onychomycosis a new benchmark of efficacy and convenience is set. The sporicidal action ensures reliable resolution of condition that minimizes the chances of relapse. The well-established safety profile of topical treatment even in diabetics makes it a much safer and convenient option.
Watnil® Lotion is the most convenient and non-invasive technique for the effective treatment of warts corns and verrucas with great ease of application and safety for full patient compliance. It incorporates a novel film-forming technology that facilitates a concentrated drug delivery system for the effective removal of warts corns and verrucas.
Salicylic acid helps cause the wart to gradually peel off. This medication is also used to help remove corns and calluses. This product should not be used on the face or on moles, birthmarks, warts with hair growing from them, or genital or anal warts. Salicylic acid is keratolytic. It works by increasing the amount of moisture in the skin and dissolving the substance that causes the skin cells to stick together. This makes it easier to shed skin cells. Warts are caused by a virus. Salicylic acid does not affect the virus.
Lactic acid increases moisture in the skin by softening/dissolving the horny substance (keratin) holding the top layer of skin cells together. This helps the dead skin cells fall off and helps the skin keep more water in. Use under medical supervision.
