A Verruca is a type of a wart on the sole of the foot. They are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV) and appear as small lumps which may be painful. Whilst verrucae may spontaneously revolve on their own, this may take months or years and potentially can easily spread to other body parts and to other people. At AAlba we use a combination of therapies to resolve these stubborn lesions. Generally, over the counter treatments are successful if you catch the lesion in time, however, occasionally you may need our expertise.
Your podiatrist will assess your skin lesion and develop a treatment plan based on your lifestyle and treatment needs. Verrucae treatments include removing the top layers of thickened skin and applying medicated dressings in order to reach deep under the lesion to remove it effectively. As this is a staged treatment process you will be required to return usually weekly to monitor your progress and make changes as required. Whilst we strive to bring innovative treatments to our patients, we believe that this traditional tried and tested method is the most successful and cost effective way to treat these stubborn lesions.
