Verrucae are warts that commonly occur on the soles of the feet or around the toes, caused by the human papilloma virus. The virus is thought to thrive in moist, damp environments such as swimming pools and communal shower areas.
Verrucae are harmless but can become painful if they develop on a weight bearing area of the foot.
Evidence suggests that verrucae will disappear on their own accord within six months for children, and up to two years for adults. Treatment may be required if your verrucae do become painful.
Cryotherapy which involves freezing with liquid nitrogen of the verrucae tissue, will likely take more than one treatment to be successful. Soft Soles Essex Ltd currently has a high success rate with this treatment, when clients engage with the verrucae care pathway.
It is often helpful to have a discussion with your Podiatrist prior to starting any treatment for a Verrucae.
