Avoca contains a medicine called silver nitrate and is used for removing warts including verrucas and excess tissue, for example tissue that forms during the healing process of wounds. Avoca works by destroying tissue on the surface layers of warts. Uses include nongenital warts and verrucas, granulation tissue, wound healing, stoma maintenance, umbilical stumps, skin tags and pain relief for aphthous stomatitis.

Directions

To use Avoca, you will need some other products to use this stick. These are:

A small amount of clean water
A clean non-absorbent surface, such as a drinking glass
Paper Tissue
Petroleum jelly
A firm surface to work on. Spread newspaper over it.
To use put a drop of water onto the clean surface and then place the tip of the Avoca stick into the water. Leave for 20 seconds. Apply the jelly to healthy skin to protect it from staining. Use the tip to apply the solution to the affected area of the skin. Allow the solution to dry and then wipe the tip of the stick. After 24 hours, file away any black surface on the skin using a nail buffer or emery board. Any remaining wart/verruca should be treated again. The treatment should be used once a day for 3 days for wart treatment, and once a day for 6 days for a verruca

Warnings

See label before use. Diabetics should consult a doctor if treating a verruca or wart.
