What is a verruca

A verruca (aka plantar wart) is a bump that is usually noted on the sole of the foot.  They are caused by a virus that invades the skin through a cut or insult to the skin. Pressure from normal standing and walking tends to force the warts into the skin.  Warts can become painful, can catch on shoes and if picked at will bleed.  People with reduced immunity are more susceptible.  Verrucas that grow in clusters are known as mosaic warts.

Risk factors include:

  • Swimming pools are a risk factor for acquiring verrucas
  • Barefeet activities increase the risk for verrucas
  • Children are more susceptible to verrucas than adults as their immunity is still developing
