Verrucas are small, rough lumps or growths on your skin caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). Many people get one at some point in their lives and they are most common in children and young adults. Verrucas are warts on the soles of your feet and they may have tiny black dots in the centre – these are where blood has clotted in tiny blood vessels on the surface of your skin. Verrucas tend to look quite flat because of the pressure put on them but due to this pressure they can become painful especially if there is hard skin forming over the top. Sometimes, if you have clusters of verrucas and these are called mosaic verrucas. Verrucas can be very challenging to get rid of and sometimes over the counter solutions just don’t seem to help.


At Borders Podiatry and Performance Clinic we can offer a range of treatments to manage your discomfort or to try and get rid of the verrucas. Treatments range from using caustic treatments, natural holistic methods and verruca needling. Verruca Needling gives great results for our patients and utilises local anaesthetic to make the procedure painless.
