Warts

Verrucae are benign intraepidermal, highly vascular growths occurring on the hands and feet as well as other parts of the body. Type found on the foot is a plantar wart. .Sometimes may actually be corns or callouses, which require different treatment (see Corns/Callouses page).

Cause:
Human Papilloma Virus which enters the skin (epidermis) after injury to the skin (bruise, splinter, etc.)

Treatment:

Don’t risk “bathroom surgery” or use over the counter acids. The podiatrist can dissolve warts painlessly with topical acid treatments or remove them surgically.
