What are warts & verrucas?
A common skin infection
Warts & verrucas are a very common type of skin infection. They are harmless growths on the top layer of the skin caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). The virus stimulates skin cells to multiply rapidly. Warts and verrucas are very contagious. To prevent them from spreading, treatment should be taken immediately.

|Common warts are usually found on the hands, knees and elbows and are recognised by the rough “cauliflower-like” appearance of the surface.|
|Verrucas are very similar but appear mainly on the sole of the foot, heels or toes and tend to be much flatter in appearance, and are sometimes covered by callous skin.|
