What Are Verrucas?
Any wart or plantar wart can be classed as a verruca; however, they are often associated with the feet and especially the soles or toes of the feet. Caused by the Human Papilloma Virus, a verruca can be highly contagious and thrive in the wet, warm conditions synonymous with swimming pools, changing rooms and other contaminated surfaces. Verruca’s are especially prone if your immune system is weakened meaning finding an effective treatment for your verruca is crucial.
Why Should You Treat Them?
As a viral infection of the skin, a verruca can be found on both the hands and feet. A verruca can suddenly appear after laying latent in the skin for many years or can be picked up through direct contact with surfaces containing the virus often where there is moisture (as above: changing areas; swimming pools; and gyms): ensuring verruca removal can be a painful and long process.
Once the verruca is embedded within the superficial surface of the skin, they will often accelerate the turnover of skin which can cause discomfort. In some cases, a verruca can become painful, and interfere with your daily activities.
