Gordofilm has been specially formulated for the topical management and removal of common and plantar warts. The common wart, known as verruca, is easily recognized by the rough cauliflower-like appearance of the surface. Gordofilm is known as a keratolytic agent, in that it breaks down or dissolves the rough or horny layer of the epidermal tissues known as keratin. The Salicylic Acid (16.7% USP) in Gordofilm exerts a marked keratolytic action which makes it a beneficial agent in the local treatment of warts. The Flexible Collodion in the formula is used as a protective or sealant, and as an antiseptic which coats the affected area.
