Wart & Verruca Removal

Explore the complexities of skin disorders and acquire thorough knowledge for efficient treatment.

Warts are benign skin growths caused by infection with the human papillomavirus (HPV). There are several types of warts, including common warts, which often appear on fingers and hands. Warts are typically rough, raised, and may have a cauliflower-like appearance. Though they are generally harmless, they can be bothersome or embarrassing. Some warts may disappear on their own, but various treatments, such as topical medications, cryotherapy, or plasma technology, can be applied for removal.

Verrucas, also known as plantar warts, specifically occur on the soles of the feet. Verrucas are caused by specific strains of HPV and often enter the skin through small cuts or breaks. Due to the pressure exerted while walking, verrucas can be more painful than warts in other locations. They are characterised by a rough surface and a central black dot, caused by bleeding from small blood vessels. Over-the-counter treatments like salicylic acid pads or professional interventions, including cryotherapy or plasma technology, can be used to eliminate warts and verrucas. It’s crucial to address verrucas promptly, as they can spread and become more challenging to treat over time.

It's crucial to note that self-treatment at home carries risks, and consulting with a healthcare professional is advised to ensure a safe and effective approach tailored to your specific situation

Warts and verrucas can affect people of all ages, but they are more common in children and teenagers. The risk increases with factors like weakened immune systems, skin cuts or abrasions, and close contact with individuals who have warts. Additionally, certain strains of HPV are more predisposed to causing warts, so susceptibility varies from person to person.

There are different types of warts and verruca’s, common warts, plantar warts, flat warts, filiform warts, genital warts. Our healthcare professionals will be able to diagnose what type you have based on its unique characteristics, including its appearance and location, as well as differential diagnosis from other dermatological conditions.

The preferred treatment is to have the wart or verruca removed, as they do tend to cause pain, itching or a tingling sensation. There is also emotional and social impact on daily life. Therefore, medical intervention is required to remove your wart or verrucas.
