Verrutop Therapy for Verrucae

Verrutop treatment works by using an active ingredient of salicylic acid, which is a common and well-established treatment for verrucas. This active ingredient helps to break down the cells that make up the wart. This allows the body’s natural immune system to clear the virus that causes the verruca.

What is Verrutop?

Verrutop is a topical solution for professional use. Its effectiveness is 90% with an average of 3 sessions and a maximum of 6. 

How does Verrutop work?

When Verrutop is applied, a chemical reaction takes place, which causes mummification of the tissue.  This then leads to the spontaneous detachment of the wart.  

Can anyone receive this treatment?

With a few exceptions, most people with verrucae would be able to have this treatment. Your Podiatrist will carry out an Initial assessment prior to treatment and be able to advise you on this.

Verrutop is NOT advised for the following people/patients:

Those deemed high risk, poor controlled diabetes, poor peripheral circulation, loss of sensation, generally unwell patients.

Very young children, those under the age of 6 – more for pain reasons

Pregnant or breastfeeding, more for litigation/ethical reasons

How many treatments will I need?

This is dependent on how you respond to treatment. In most cases, you will need more than one treatment which are spaced 2 weeks apart. The vast majority of cases will require 2-6 treatments. 6 being the maximum amount of treatments.

What is a Verruca?

A verruca is a type of wart that occurs on the sole of the foot. Verrucae are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and produce small, raised lesions on the skin which can often be extremely painful to walk on particularly when in weight bearing areas.

How did I get a verruca?

Verrucae are transmitted from person to person, HPV prefers damp or wet environments and surfaces, so they are often transmitted in changing rooms, wet rooms or swimming pools. They can also be transmitted by contaminated objects such as files, footwear, socks and towels. When the skin is damaged or damp the host is more susceptible to picking up the virus. It is imperative during your treatment that you isolate any methods of filing to yourself and DO NOT share with others.

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.

Can Verrucae go away on their own?

In some cases, verrucae may go away on their own. When seen in the adult population, it is often more difficult to shift them due the immune system not being as active or respondent as that in a child.
In some cases, we advocate occlusive therapy or self-treatment using files particularly in children. However, when the lesions are very painful, treatment will often be advised.
