Verrucae are warts found on the soles of the feet which are caused by the HPV virus. The virus grows in moist, damp environments and is highly contagious. The virus is commonly picked up in public swimming pools or communal showers where it can be spread from person to person by simply walking in an infected area.
Verrucae are generally harmless but can occasionally become painful.
There are many over the counter remedies available and self-administered verruca treatment can often be effective. However, if you would like professional advice on the best form of treatment for verruca removal please contact the clinic.
