How does it work?
Infected tissue can exist several millimetres below the surface and can often be difficult to treat using traditional methods, resulting in either untreated tissue or significant damage.

What do they feel and look like?
Many of our patients describe verrucae as extremely painful but also as “embarrassing” and “a nuisance”. Verrucae can spread from host to host causing significant pain and irritation so it is important to get it treated as soon as you notice one.
Verrucae may exist as a single lesion but can also occur in multiple sites or in a mosaic like manner affecting large areas of the foot. They are often raised dots with small black dots throughout the lesion or on some occasion have small arm like projections.
