Verrucae can be described as warts on the feet caused by a viral infection, they commonly affect children, but can affect any age group.
They often cause no problem at all to the feet and are a very common infection, although in some cases they can cause discomfort and need to be treated.
There are many different treatments available ranging from topical paints and acid preparations to cryo- surgery. Cryo-surgery is a course of treatment which involves freezing the verruca.
The number of treatments is determined by the type and number of verrucae present.
Often a combination of treatments is used and although often successful sometimes it is not possible to permantely remove the verruca, but it is usually possible to make the area more comfortable and acceptable.
