acid therapy

acid therapy

a method for removing verrucae that uses plaster patches impregnated with acid, such as 40% salicylic acid, or with acid drops, such as 5% to 16.7% salicylic and lactic acids in flexible collodion. The patches are applied every 12 to 24 hours for 2 to 4 weeks. Acid therapy is not usually recommended for body areas that perspire heavily or that are likely to become wet or for exposed body parts where the patches would detract from the patient's appearance.
