Introduction to Veruccas & Warts
At Infinite Podiatry we know how frustrating verrucas can be. They can cause you both physical and emotional discomfort, and we don’t think you should have to put up with them.
What Causes Verrucas and Warts?
Verrucas are warts! The only difference is where they’re found. Verrucas are on the bottom of feet, warts are everywhere else.
Warts are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) which invades the body via tiny scrapes and scratches in the skin. The virus loves a warm and dark environment, so are spread easily in communal areas such as swimming pools, showers and athletic facilities. Verrucas tend to be more common in children than adults.
Over the counter verruca treatments are available. However, these products rarely offer the same results as the treatments provided by healthcare specialists and in some circumstances can cause wounds and scaring.
Our Podiatrists use several treatment approaches to get rid of unsightly verrucas, giving you the confidence to go barefoot and enjoy your visits to the gym and spa again. We will conduct a thorough Verruca Consultation to determine the most appropriate course of treatment for you based on your presentation and medical history.
