INTRODUCTION

KERASOL F LOTION is a combination of Lactic Acid and Salicylic Acid which belongs to the group of medicines called Alpha-hydroxy acids and Keratolytics respectively. It is used to treat skin defects such as warts, verrucae, corns and calluses. Warts and verrucae are a type of small unnecessary growths of the skin occurring on fingers, back of hands or soles and are caused by a virus and can spread to other people. Corns and calluses are hard, thick pads of skin caused by pressure and friction that occur on the feet and hands.

Lactic acid and salicylic acid in cases of corns and calluses work by softening the hardened skin growth so that it can be easily removed by using a pumice stone or emery board. It also helps treat warts and verrucae by reducing the infection and its spread to other parts of the body by killing the virus that causes them.
