Warts and verrucae are very common, affecting most adults at one time or another.
They are caused by a virus which causes the skin to change. It is not of medical concern. However, warts and verrucas can be very inconvenient and unattractive, causing embarrassment for the sufferer.
Warts are common on the hands, fingers or face although they can appear anywhere on the body. They can vary in shape – they may be flat, raised or have a cauliflower type shape. Sizes range from 1-10 mm.
Verrucas are basically warts that appear on the underside of the feet. They tend to appear flatter than on the fingers and can be uncomfortable, even painful to walk on.
Living with Warts
Warts and verrucas are highly contagious, so to stop warts spreading to other areas of the body or passing onto other people, they should be covered up when possible and appropriate to stop the spread e.g. sharing gym equipment, at swimming pools.
Treatment as early as possible stops the wart or verruca becoming very established, as they can get hard, knobbly and last for years.
Home treatment is possible, although results can be slow. Professional treatment is a preferable option for many patients.
