Warts (other wise known as Verrucae) are usually contracted at wet places where you walk barefoot, so are common with people who use showers at a gym or swimming pools.
They are often confused with Corns and Callus – another type of painful hard skin lesion. Your podiatrist will be able to differentiate these.
Verrucae tend to be harder to treat if they are left for a long time so if you’ve noticed a new area of hard or thickened skin on the sole of your feet it might be one and you should visit your podiatrist for an expert opinion.
Warts are due to the Human Papillomavirus and develop on the foot in a cauliflower appearance, with the skin’s striations running around the wart itself.
Advance Foot Clinic’s treatment follows a régime that is relatively painless and requires no surgery. This allows the podiatrists to treat multiple warts simultaneously for a quicker treatment outcome.
