Warts & Verrucas
Most people will have Warts at some point in their life. They’re generally harmless and can to go away on their own eventually, but this can take months or even years.
Warts can be found anywhere on the body, whereas Veruccas are usually found on the soles of our feet. Both of which can be spread by skin-to-skin contact, especially from public swimming pools and hand-holding.
What Is A Wart Or Verruca?
A Wart is a lump of skin cells that is growing abnormally, due to being infected with the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). Most warts are completely harmless but can be unsightly and sometimes painful.
To help identify if you have either of these, and to differentiate between Warts and Veruccas, we have detailed some key characteristics of both Warts & Veruucas below.
- Tend to be round or oval-shaped, and raised
- Have a rough and irregular surface, similar to the appearance of a cauliflower (although some can also be smooth)
- Vary in size, from less than 1mm to more than 1cm
- Can appear anywhere on the body on their own or in a group
- Develop on the soles of the feet
- Tend to be flat, rather than raised, but grow into the foot not outwards
- Can be painful if they’re on a weight-bearing part of the foot
- Can be irregular in shape
