What are Verrucas?
Small bumpy growths on the feet or hands, often with black dots on the surface, are caused by a virus that invades the skin through tiny cuts or scrapes.
Verrucas on the feet can become painful when they are in weight-bearing areas and they can be difficult to treat with over the counter treatments often failing.
