Plantar warts present as stubborn and often painful raised legions on the foot. A virus called the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) can lay dormant in the body for years until it decides to come out to the surface as a wart.
You can pick these beautiful little viruses up from communal showers, public pools and any other place you walk barefoot (Usually high barefoot traffic areas). If you want one, just head over to any of these places and walk barefoot.
We have a range of treatment options available. If you think you have a verruca you should visit our Dublin Foot Clinic where we can tailor a treatment plan to you and your lifestyle.
