Soluver is a topical solutions medication commonly used to treat various skin conditions such as acne, warts, and calluses.
Soluver contains salicylic acid, which is a type of beta-hydroxy acid that functions as a keratolytic. This means that it helps to exfoliate or remove the outermost layer of the skin by breaking down the proteins that hold dead skin cells together. This exfoliating action allows the skin to shed old cells more easily and reveal smoother, fresher-looking skin underneath. In addition to its exfoliating properties, salicylic acid also has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic effects, which can help to reduce redness and swelling in certain skin conditions such as acne.
Use and Dosage
Soluver should be applied directly to the affected area, using the applicator provided or a cotton swab.
To use Soluver cream for warts, first, you need to apply it directly to the wart according to the package instructions. Follow the recommended dosage. Before the application, you can thin down the wart with a pumice stone or nail file until all the white, dead skin is removed without causing discomfort or pain. This dead skin removal is only to help the medication work well, and you should not try to rub the wart or callus off. Then, you can apply a few drops or a small amount of cream to cover the wart fully. You can repeat the application for up to 12 weeks or until the wart is removed. However, if you have any questions or concerns regarding the use of Soluver cream, consult a healthcare professional.
The length of time Soluver should be used may vary depending on the severity of the skin condition being treated. It is recommended to continue using Soluver as directed until the affected skin is completely healed and the abnormal skin cells have been shed.
