Read up

    Warts are small lumps or growths of skin that are rough and hard to the touch and are common on the hands and face but can appear anywhere on the body. They are completely harmless and do not usually cause the sufferer any pain, however, a lot of people find them unsightly and choose to treat them with medications.

    The cause of warts is the human papillomavirus (HPV) and they eventually go away by themselves without treatment. However, this can often take 1 or 2 years and sometimes even as long as 10 years, so treating them quickly and simply is the option that people normally go with.

    Verrucas are exactly the same as warts; they have the same symptoms, the same look and feel and the same cause. The only difference is that verrucas specially refer to warts on your feet, usually on the soles.

    Because of this, verrucas can be spread more easily than warts. Warts, in general, are contagious but verrucas have a point of contact (with the floor and with shoes) that lends itself to giving the warts to other people. Community pools and showers are a particular breeding ground because they are more contagious when the skin is wet, but you could also spread them to others by sharing socks or shoes.

    The easiest way to treat warts and verrucas is to simply leave them; they will go away on their own. But they can be unsightly on the hands or face (making people self-conscious) and they can be painful on the souls of the feet.

    To save waiting for them to go away on their own, most people choose to treat warts and verrucas with our fast-acting and practical products. Salicylic acid is a chemical that softens the hard outer layer of the wart or verruca, and daily application of products that contain this will get rid of them. These products are usually waterproof and designed to stop the spread of the infection.

    It’s not uncommon for warts or verrucas to come back after treating them, so it’s a good idea to keep some effective medications in stock, to treat them whenever you need to.
