Treatment of Veruccas in our clinic Belfast

What is a Verucca

A verruca, also known as a plantar wart, is a type of wart that develops on the sole of the foot. It is caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) and is commonly found in areas of pressure, such as the heels or balls of the feet. Verrucas are characterized by their rough, grainy appearance and can vary in size and shape. They may cause discomfort or pain, especially when walking or standing.

Verrucas are contagious and can be spread through direct contact with the virus. They are commonly contracted in public places like swimming pools, locker rooms, or communal showers.

Treatment options for verrucas include over-the-counter wart treatments, such as salicylic acid solutions or medicated plasters. In some cases, cryotherapy (freezing), laser therapy, or other medical interventions may be recommended by a healthcare professional to remove the verruca. It’s important to consult with a healthcare provider for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan for verrucas.
