Verrucae (verrucas) are contagious viral warts. They are caused by the HPV virus. The virus cleverly mimics healthy skin cells making it difficult for the body to detect the infection, which is why verrucae can persist for a long time.
They are usually spread in public areas, such as swimming pools, showers and gyms. They enter the body through a small nick, abrasion or cut.
At The Farnham Foot Clinic, we offer fast and effective verruca treatment.
