There are over 200 serotypes of warts, so feel free to consult Hunt Footcare to identify and treat any that you might have. In some cases, what you may think are warts are actually another skin problem that we can manage and provide proper treatment for.
A wart is a hard, raised area on your skin, caused by a variety of viruses. The most common raised warts appear on your hands, elbows and knees, and are known as verruca vulgaris. However, what most people call a verruca is actually a different type of wart (a plantar wart) that appears on the soles of the feet. Verrucas are usually hard, flat and are rough to the touch. The reason verrucas are flat is that the weight of your body pushes them back into the sole of your foot.
