Verruca Treatment

Verruca(Warts) are viral skin infections and in seven cases out of ten they will fade away without treatment.

I recommend trying simple over the counter remedies which are available from your pharmacist, or I can advise and supply such products.

The treatments carried out in this practice are more aggressive in nature to try and resolve the lesion as quickly as possible
Most commonly acid treatments are applied as they have the most predictable outcomes.

Warts can be removed using local anaesthetic and electrosurgery, but this can be a more painful treatment with no more than a 70% chance of success and the risk of scarring.

Freezing treatment can be used but I find this less successful on the thickened skin of the sole of the foot.

If you have tried self treatment come along for an appointment and let me assess which form of treatment I think most likely to be successful.
