Verrutop is relatively new, however,  the ingredients of Verrutop, such as Nitric acid, copper and zinc, are not new to the treatment of Verrucas at all but, in fact, have been used for many years.

The treatment is very safe, generally painless and can even be used on children as young as 6 years old. It involves the application of a solution to the surface of the Verruca while in clinic. There is no need for any injections or pain relief.

Usually approximately 4 treatments are necessary, spaced fortnightly although up to 6 treatments can be given. At this early stage we cannot comment specifically on how effective this treatment is but early evidence is very promising.

If you would like more information on this treatment, please contact the Theale Wellbeing Centre and we will arrange one of our podiatrists who specialises in verruca treatment to contact you.

Some frequently asked questions:

Does it hurt?

There may be some minor discomfort like many many treatments for skin lesions. Prior to treatment your podiatrist may decide to reduce the lesion with a blade. Pain levels vary from person to person but as mentioned above patients liken it to a pain similar to an injection or a scratch, lasting 2 – 3 seconds then quickly subsiding. After the treatment the area may feel sore but it will not prevent you doing your normal activities.
