Verrucae

Verrucae are warts that commonly occur on the soles of the feet or around the toe area. They are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), which is contagious through direct person-to-person contact. 


The most common appearance is that of a small cauliflower-type growth on the soles of your feet with tiny black dots. If it is painful when you pinch the area (like when you squeeze a spot), you are likely to have a Verruca. They can grow to 1cm in diameter and may spread into a cluster of small warts.


Keith will assess and diagnose if you have a Verruca. In the occurrence of a Verruca, Keith will then discuss treatment options with you, which may include 'Verruca Needling'.
