Verrucas are caused by a highly contagious virus. They are often mistaken for corns and can be very painful.

Identifying a verruca by appearance and symptom:

  • Surface of the skin is rough or granular and irregular in shape.
  • One or more may occur at a time, with tiny brown/black spots in them.
  • Most commonly occur on the sole of the foot, in areas of pressure and between the toes.


  • Virus enters through damaged skin.
  • Walking barefoot on damp floors is the most common method of infection.
