We are probably all familiar with verruca! Either we have had them as children, or we are aware of the treatments as advertised on TV. For the facts on VP please read on and book an appointment with your podiatrist.
Verruca treatments are tricky!
Due to the very nature of the HP virus, verruca and warts are both difficult to cure and sometimes surprising when they self resolve
All treatments for verruca are designed to cause trauma to the verruca and the tissue surrounding them, meaning that they can be painful and sore for days after treatment. Treatment is often repeated many times.
And yet, there is no guarantee that any will work effectively.
When you visit the Foot Clinic your podiatrist will discuss with you the treatments available, the efficacy of each and what you can expect from treatment. Verruca present in different ways, and often treatment options are defined by the type of Verruca you have.
At the Foot Clinic we advocate several treatment modalities and it is your choice which you want to choose. Here we offer VP Needling, Verrutop, conservative management and a do nothing approach. We refer for surgical interventions and wthe use of liquid nitrogen or microwave therapies.
