Laser Wart and Verruca Removal
What are Warts and Verruca’s?
Warts and Verruca’s are caused by a viral infection of the skin causing a rough thickening of the surface area of the skin. They usually appear as a cauliflower like structure, with tiny black spots and can be singular or found in a cluster. Warts can appear anywhere on the body but most typically appear on the hands, knees. Warts on the soles of your feet are Verruca’s which are known as plantar warts as they are commonly found on the soles (plantar) of the feet.
Both warts and verrucae are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) a contagious virus that can be spread by direct person to person contact. It is possible to contract a Verruca just by walking across the same floor as someone with a verruca, so it is important to wear something on your feet especially when in communal area such as changing room, swimming pools, spas and showers, as the HPV virus is thought to thrive in damp, moist and warm areas.
