Lapis pencil is an antiseptic silver-containing preparation used externally to treat skin diseases.
The active substance of Lapis Pencil is silver nitrate, which has a cauterizing, necrotic tissue and bactericidal effect. The mechanism of action of the drug lies in the ability of silver to suppress the vital activity of microorganisms, which prevents the development of inflammatory processes in damaged tissues.
The rendered therapeutic effect of Lapis pencil against warts is due to a pronounced cauterizing effect, which, with frequent use, can lead to the formation of black spots and severe burns.
A lapis pencil is produced in the form of pencils containing the active ingredient silver nitrate in an alloy with potassium nitrate.
