What are Verrucas?

Verrucas, also known as verrucae, are tiny growths, warts, or lesions that can be found on particular parts of the feet.

Verrucas more frequently appear on the heel or sole of the foot, where they are more likely to be painful due to pressure from the foot.

It is possible to easily contract verrucas from the flooring of locker rooms or swimming pools due to the highly contagious nature of this virus, which can be spread through direct human contact.

Verrucas are harmless and can go away on their own, but it’s typical for them to persist for months or even years and can be very painful, so getting treatment for removal is the safest option.

Prevention of Verrucas

Verrucas are very contagious and can spread quickly from person to person.  Here are some tips for avoiding verrucas and safeguarding those around you:


  • Never share socks, shoes, or towels.
  • Be cautious in public restrooms, public pools, and recreation areas. In the locker rooms and around the pools, wear flip flops. Or, while in the water, put on swimming socks.
  • Avoid picking or scratching verrucas since they can spread from other regions of your body, such as your hands and fingernails.
  • Avoid cutting or burning a verruca since doing so increases your chance of getting an infection, hurting yourself, and spreading the wart to other places of your body.

Verruca Removal in London

Verrucas Removal Treatment

Verrucas and warts are a very common skin issue, and most of our patients at City Dermatology Clinic want them removed since they are unpleasant and painful.

Verrucas, which are rough growths, are frequently seen on foot.

They are very contagious, but performing surgery on the foot can be complex, therefore it is highly advisable to see our verruca specialist for removal.

City Dermatology Clinic’s doctors and specialists are the greatest option for patients seeking verruca removal because they have performed thousands of verruca removals and have years of experience. 

As warts can be persistent and deeply rooted, laser treatment alone is frequently insufficient. At City Dermatology Clinic, we combine laser treatment with surgical methods that reach the wart’s roots, minimising the risk of recurrence. We then cauterise any microscopic remnants.

The doctor will recommend the best course of action for you, so you don’t need to worry about picking one. There is no pressure to undergo treatment during consultation or after an exam.

Are verrucas contagious?

Verrucas can spread through direct human touch and are really quite contagious. Due to the possibility of spreading the condition through your fingernails, you should avoid picking or scratching verrucas.

Are verrucas painful?

Depending on where a verruca is positioned on the foot, it may be extremely painful. The most frequent location is on the bottom of the foot, which is quite uncomfortable to stand and walk on due to pressure.
