What is a Verruca?
A verruca, or wart, is a virus that lies between the layers of your skin. At best they are inconvenient but they can become very painful and will often spread as they are highly contagious. They normally appear on the feet or around the toe area and appear as little black spots under hard skin. They are often painful like standing on a needle.
While some verrucas are painless and may go away on their own they can often become very painful and take months or years to go if they do at all.
What is the best treatment for a Verruca?
Most existing treatments are painful and usually have a poor success rate.
Although there are many different proprietary brands for treating Verrucas at The Theale Wellbeing Centre near Reading we use the SWIFT microwave treatment. This new treatment applies localised heat energy to help destroy infected tissue. With treatment times in seconds this method provides a precise and easy way of treating skin lesions.
There is more information available here about SWIFT treatment.
