Should I Do Something About My Verruca?

Verrucae are a common problem that affect many of us, and they are usually benign in nature. However, they can cause discomfort or considerable embarrassment for some people.

Verrucae are caused by a virus, and it is notoriously difficult to treat virus with medication, hence the reason why we still suffer from verruca and even the common cold.

If a verruca isn’t causing pain or embarrassment, leaving alone may well be the best course of action. The vast majority of verrucae will resolve at some point without any treatment anyway.

So, its causing you pain or embarrassment and you want it gone? There are a number of treatments available from a podiatrist from caustic therapy, cryotherapy to a minor procedure under a local anaesthetic called verruca needling. If you want to find out what treatment is best for you we’d recommend having a consultation with a podiatrist who is experienced in all treatment types for verruca. At Davenport House Clinic we will help you find the best treatment option for you.
