Verruca

 

A verruca is a plantar wart caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). It can develop at any age but is more common in children and adolescents. Warts are spread by contact either directly from person to person, through sharing towels etc, or indirectly through communal changing rooms and walking barefoot                  

 

 

 

 

                                             

 

 

There is no single treatment that is 100% effective and different types of treatment may be combined. Evidence has shown that verruca will eventually disappear on their own  and if there is no pain it is generally recommended to allow the body's immune system to fight the virus.

 

However if the verruca is painful Suzette will be able to advise the best course of treatment for you.

 

Please note that in certain instances the treatment can be lengthly and requires patient compliance.
