Verrucae can be one of the most frustrating of conditions with many patients attended the Centre having had all manner of treatments at other locations. The Cinic has a straight forward approach to the management of these virally induced skin lesions.
What are verrucae?
Verrucae are small warts that are usually found on the bottom of the feet.
They may appear similar in appearance to corns, but, the surface of the verrucae will have small black dots, and may have a cauliflower appearance. They can cause discomfort – as though you have a stone in your shoe – causing you to alter your walking style.
Verrucae are caused by a virus, like a flu virus some people are more susceptible than others, depending on the health of your immune system. They are thought to be acquired when the foot comes into contact with the virus in damp environments, (although this theory has never been proven). Verrucae have several different presentations, their most distinguishing feature is that they interrupt the pattern (finger print) of the skin.
