Here at The Healthcare Hub our experienced team of HCPC registered Chiropodists can offer a number of different verruca treatments. Many people suffer from Verrucae, these can be painful and unsightly and are often a source of embarrassment.
A verruca is a harmless virus that lives between the layers of the skin. The virus is called a human papilloma virus (HPV) and can often be contracted when in communal areas such as gyms, swimming pools and changing rooms.
Verruca’s often form a hard layer of skin over the top which makes it difficult to treat. During your appointment this hard skin will be removed allowing the chiropodist to treat the actual verruca. One of the Verruca treatments available is to apply a mild acid which will then allow the body to recognise that the Verruca is present.
Verrucae can take a few appointment treatments before results are seen.
