body/foot Condition


Verruca are generally 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.

As the dressing and padding may be thick, it is best to bring flip-flops along.

The procedure involves local anaesthetic to the area around the main verruca. Once this is anaesthetised, a needle is used to pierce through the verruca several times. The area is then dressed and a deflective pad is applied to aid walking.
