Chemical cauterisation plays a major part in the treatment of verrucae. The two agents used at this clinic are Salicylic Acid and Silver nitrate.
This treatment offers minimum discomfort to the patient. As the treatment progresses and the verrucae become shallower there may be some pain. The aim of this treatment is to burn away the verruca and a thin layer of underlying tissue, causing a blister or small wound.
