What is a verrucae

A verruca is a type of wart that looks like a small, dark puncture mark in the early stages but later turns grey or brown. It’s contagious through direct contact. You can buy over-the-counter remedies from your pharmacy; ask for products with salicylic acid. If at any stage your verruca becomes painful and the surrounding skin goes red, stop treating immediately and see a podiatrist.

We treat these with a much stronger ointment. We also use Cryosurgery if patient’s lifestyle does not enable them to keep their feet dry.
