What is Avoca Wart and Verruca Medication?

Avoca is a medication that is used to clear out persistent warts and verrucas that are often found on the hands and feet. Avoca can also be used to remove excess tissues that form on the skin whenever a wound is healing.

How Does Avoca Warts and Verruca Medication Work?

Warts are small growth on the skin that are caused when the human Papillomavirus (HPV) enters the body through a cut or abrasion on the skin. Warts tend to occur on the hands and face while verruca is located on the soles of the foot and toes. Warts multiply quickly and can be passed on by direct contact with infected surfaces therefore, they require immediate treatment to prevent them from spreading to other body parts or others. The medication works by disinfecting the skin and destroying the granulation tissues until they disappear.
