Sometimes the best verruca treatment means visiting a podiatrist. There are many over the counter treatments for verrucae, but unfortunately sometimes the verruca remains. If this happens it’s best to seek professional Podiatry advice (the NHS does not treat verruca). Waverley Foot Clinic Farnham treats verruca infections every week. From children to adults verruca treatment can eradicate the problem. As the verruca is a virus it usually takes between 3 and 4 treatments to see the end to the infection. We also offer long term advice to reduce the risk of picking up another infection.
Verrucae are actually caused by the HPV virus (Human Papillomavirus) and can be spread to others through contact with surfaces that may have been contaminated.
The verruca HPV virus can contaminate a floor surface, only to be picked up by another person as they walk by. For example, hotel bathrooms, gyms, showers, or even buying shoes barefoot. Children are potentially at risk as they change together several times each week for sport etc, but any age can be infected.

We can discuss any of these options at your appointment and will help you decide which verruca foot infection treatment is the best removal treatment for you.
