Big Image
Generic Name: Salicylic Acid Gel 17% (sal-ih-SILL-ik AS-id)
Brand Name: Examples include Duoplant and Sal-Plant

Duoplant Gel is used for:

Removing common warts and warts on the bottom of the foot (plantar warts). It may also be used for other skin conditions as determined by your doctor.

Duoplant Gel is a topical salicylate. It works by causing the skin to swell, soften, and then slough or peel in areas where it is applied.

Do NOT use Duoplant Gel if:

  • you are allergic to any ingredient in Duoplant Gel
  • you have diabetes or poor blood circulation

Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.

Before using Duoplant Gel:

Some medical conditions may interact with Duoplant Gel. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any medical conditions, especially if any of the following apply to you:

  • if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding
  • if you are taking any prescription or nonprescription medicine, herbal preparation, or dietary supplement
  • if you have allergies to medicines, foods, or other substances
  • if you have had a severe allergic reaction (eg, severe rash, hives, difficulty breathing, dizziness) to aspirin or a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) (eg, ibuprofen, naproxen, celecoxib)
  • if you have liver or kidney problems, a skin infection, or skin irritation

Some MEDICINES MAY INTERACT with Duoplant Gel. Tell your health care provider if you are taking any other medicines, especially any of the following:

  • Anticoagulants, (eg, heparin, warfarin), aspirin, methotrexate, or sulfonylureas (eg, glipizide) because the risk of side effects may be increased by Duoplant Gel

This may not be a complete list of all interactions that may occur. Ask your health care provider if Duoplant Gel may interact with other medicines that you take. Check with your health care provider before you start, stop, or change the dose of any medicine.

How to use Duoplant Gel:

Use Duoplant Gel as directed by your doctor. Check the label on the medicine for exact dosing instructions.

  • First soak the wart in warm water for about 5 minutes. Dry thoroughly. Apply 1 drop at a time to sufficiently cover each wart. Let dry.
  • Cover the area with a small adhesive bandage or dressing (if practical) unless your doctor has instructed you not to. Unless your hands are being treated, be sure to wash your hands after each application.
  • If you miss a dose of Duoplant Gel, use it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not use 2 doses at once.

Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Duoplant Gel.
