Warts and Verrucas

Warts and Verrucas are small unpleasant looking lumps on the skin that most people have at some point their life, although they usually can go away by themselves, this can sometimes take months or even years to happen. Warts tend to appear on the hands, feet and knees and often feel hard and rough to the touch. Verrucas on the other hand appear primarily on the feet and have a tiny black dot which is located under callused skin. To speed up a Wart or Verrucas exit, most medical professionals recommend using a wart or verruca cream. These cream-based treatments require multiple applications daily, often over a period of several months. Nevertheless, at the end of the treatment period, the cream should have successfully removed the Wart or Verruca.
