Verrucas are rough, small growths on the foot. Verrucas are very common and most people develop a verruca at least once in their lives.
Verrucas on the skin are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). The virus is transferred when a person’s foot makes contact with a contaminated surface.
As mentioned verrucas are caused by the HPV virus and develop almost exclusively on the foot.
Verrucas can be spread by skin to skin contact or by sharing objects that have been contaminated by the virus, like socks, shoes, towels etc.
Although verrucas don’t pose any serious health risks, they can be uncomfortable and unsightly.
In about 65 – 80% of cases untreated verrucas will clear up within one to two years.
