Verruca are general small skin coloured growths which appear like a cauliflower with small black dots. It can be singular, or one of many in a small area.
Verrucae are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus or (HPV). The virus embeds itself between the striations of the skin and feeds off the body’s blood supply. Verrucae can occur anywhere on the skin but primarily occur on weight bearing areas.
A verruca can be either singular or may have little satellite verrucae around a larger one(mother). It is quite difficult to eradicate this virus as it usually lives undetected by the body’s natural immune system. If you have failed to rid this stubborn but very common condition, you may wish to supplement your treatment with paring down of the verruca or opt for a more definitive management option.
