Verruca Treatment

"Great service and friendly staff. Had a couple of appts and everything is now great"

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. 

What’s involved?

  • We take time to understand your existing medical conditions and medication, we’ll also undertake a diabetic suitability review.
  • We’ll discuss any questions or concerns you have about potential treatments
  • We will undertake a neuro-vascular assessment to measure sensation and circulation in order for us to be best informed to advise you on potential treatment options.
  • We’ll take a good look at your feet and undertake a full inspection for you.
