    Warts & Verrucas

Once the wart/verruca has been removed there will be a wound which may take a few weeks to heal completely. Healing on the foot can be compromised as the area is constantly under pressure and prone to infection (due to heat, dirt and sweat). It is therefore essential to wear loose and cushioned footwear during the healing process.

Good wound care is essential. It is important to wash the wound separately with a antiseptic soap called Hibiscrub. Colloid dressings such as CompeedTM dressings provide for a moist wound healing environment and cushioning that aids a swifter recovery. Both the dressings and the antiseptic soap can be easily sourced at your local pharmacy.
