Why Does GlyCylic® Work So Well?
GlyCylic®’s vehicle (glycolic acid) works to break the bonds between the outer layers of the wart, including dead skin cells, and open pathways for the Salicylic Acid to achieve deep penetration.
The GlyCylic® Advantage.
GlyCylic® – is the first wart remover formulated with salicylic acid (a beta-hydroxy acid), glycolic acid (an alpha-hydroxyl acid), and immunomodulatory, virucidal, anti-scarring, and antiseptic ingredients that condition the emerging skin and promote healing while minimizing swelling, irritation, inflammation, and scarring. The anti-viral kills the HPV virus and the immunomodulatory triggers an immune response to clear the virus and prevent reoccurrence.
Glycolic Acid: Glycolic acid is the acid with the greatest ability to penetrate the hard thick skin covering the outermost layers of a wart. Think of it as the “tip of a knife”.
Salicylic Acid: Salicylic Acid follows the Glycolic Acid into the wart to achieve deep penetration. Salicylic acid causes the skin to swell, soften, and then peel off.
Glycerin: Glycerin traps moisture in your skin and contributes to the penetration and peeling-off of the top layers of the wart. It also moisturizes the emerging skin.
Ethyl Pyruvate: Ethyl pyruvate has profound anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties. Ethyl Pyruvate acts to minimize inflammation as wart layers are peeled off.
Povidone-iodine: offers broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity, effective for wart healing, prevents resistance, and reduces inflammation. Burn victims treated with it do not develop scars.
What You Need to Know About Warts
Plantar Warts:
• Caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), primarily HPV-1, and less commonly by types 2, 4, 60, and 63.
• Virus enters through skin cracks, causing outer skin layer thickening.
• Affects 7-10% of the population, mostly young people.
• Small, non-intrusive warts can be treated at home.
• See a doctor if warts bleed, affect walking, change in appearance, worsen despite treatment, or if you have diabetes.
• Spread by direct or indirect contact (e.g., public showers, swimming pools).
• Picking, scratching, nail-biting, cuticle-picking, and shaving increase spread risk.
• Often occur at pressure points on the foot.
Types of Warts:
• Common warts (verruca vulgaris): Flesh-colored, raised spots with a rough surface, often on elbows, knees, hands, fingers, and around nails. Black dots are superficial blood vessels.
• Plantar warts (verruca plantaris): Found on the foot's bottom, may be flat due to pressure, can be painful, red, and swollen.
• Flat warts (verruca plana): Smaller, smoother, appear in large numbers on the face, arms, and legs.
• Periungual and subungual warts: Form under or around fingernails and toenails.
The neurotropic B vitamins B1 (thiamine), B6 (pyridoxine), and B12(cobalamin) are essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system. Studies have found a biochemical synergy becomes apparent in many different pathways in the nervous system, particularly in the peripheral nervous system as exemplified by their combined use in the treatment of peripheral neuropathy.
When to See a Doctor
Warts are painful or change in appearance/color. Persistent, spreading, or recurring warts despite treatment. Unsure if the growth is a wart. Wart interferes with normal activities.
