Duofilm is a topical treatment for warts, as well as verrucas, corns and calluses. This solution is a topical salicylate and works by causing the skin to swell, soften, and then slough or peel in areas where it is applied.
Warts and verrucas often need prolonged treatment to obtain complete removal.
