Verrucae

f4f-Logo-no-bg.png

Verrucae are a common, minor foot problem that should have minimal impact on your overall health. They are simply a benign tumour, similar to a wart, caused by the Papilloma Virus. However, they can affect your daily life due to the embarrassment they cause and, left untreated, can easily spread to other family members or multiply within the affected area.

 

Verrucae typically last for about two years and present both as a single version, or a cluster. They are easily identified by the black dots that often appear on the surface which are tiny blood vessels. Initial infection occurs by the virus entering the skin via a small wound or cut. Discomfort or pain may be experienced if it is sited on a weight bearing part of the foot.   

 

How to avoid a verruca

Verrucae require warmth and moisture hence why they are easily spread in environments such as gyms, bathrooms, and swimming pools. To minimise your risk, always use a waterproof plaster to cover any cuts and check your feet regularly.

 

Treatment

All First4feet practitioners are highly experienced in the best way to treat verrucae and achieve successful outcomes for our clients. Your treatment options will be discussed, after an initial appraisal to determine your specific needs, and will include either application of acid or a freezing process.

 

Further treatment

Our practitioner will advise how many sessions you require and may suggest regular maintenance appointments following treatment to prevent further problems.

 

Length of Appointment

15-30 minutes

 

Price

£20-£50 per session depending on product used

       We place great emphasis on clinical cleanliness, and we abide strictly to the care guidelines set out for Foot Health Professionals.

       Instruments are sterilized in an autoclave and remain sterile in a vacuum sealed pouch until opened during treatment so there can be no risk of cross contamination between patients.

Full Foot Treatment

One of the most popular treatments offered across all First4Feet Foot clinics, a Full Foot Treatment will not only leave your feet feeling in tip-top condition but most importantly it can identify any issues before they become too serious and enable any required treatment to begin promptly

Toe/Finger Nail Cutting

If you struggle to cut your toenails and fingernails, possibly due to a difficulty in maintaining a safe grip of the clippers, or struggle to reach your toenails we can help. The process of how to cut toenails differs slightly from that of how to cut fingernails.
