WARNING & PRECAUTIONS
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Talk to your doctor before taking CORN CAPS MEDIGRIP, if you:
- are allergic (hypersensitive) to salicylic acid (aspirin) or any of the other ingredients of this patch
- have wart on skin surrounding it is inflamed or broken
- have wart on moles, birthmarks, unusual warts with hair growth or on your face or genital region
- have broken or damaged skin such as cuts or grazes
- If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, think you may be pregnant or planning to have baby, ask your doctor for advice before taking this medicine
- Step 1 Soak your feet in warm water for 5-10 minutes: This will soften the skin of corn and enhance the absorption of salicylic acid present in the corn cap
- Step 2 Rub with pumice stone: Gently rub the corn or callus with pumice stone; the pressure should be gentle so that you don’t feel any pain
- Step 3 Completely dry your corn: This is essential step to avoid trapping moisture under the corn cap that can lead to maceration of your skin
- Step 4 Put corn cap: Make sure that you put the corn cap exactly over the corn and secure it if needed with micropore so that it does not come out until next 24 hours
- Step 5 Remove softened skin: It is very crucial to understand how to remove corn after putting corn cap. You shouldnot peel off the soft skin by putting undue pressure. Instead, use scissors or nail cutter to remove the hanging piece of skin
- Step 6 Repeat: Repeat the above steps until you do not feel the thick skin and if you can see the fingerprint on the corn
- Step 7 Pad the corn: To prevent recurrence, use the protective corn pads or cotton padding to avoid pressure or friction in the area of corn
Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.
