Verrucas refer to a viral infection that is caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). This virus penetrates the top layer of the skin and then travels into the deeper layer of the skin, affecting both layers.
Help with ingrown toenails
Ingrown toenails can curve into the skin and are extremely painful. Left untreated, they can also lead to infection. Ingrown toenails can be caused by trauma or damage to the nail or nail bed, micro-trauma, which can be caused by repeated pressure from shoes.
Other causes include blunt trauma, narrow or smaller shoes that place extra pressure on the big toe nail as well as fungal ailments and genetics, as some people are naturally born and predisposed to ingrown toenails.

Methods we use to treat veruccas
Chemical cautery and Cryosurgery using liquid nitrogen
What type of anaesthetic is required?
You’ll only need a local anaesthetic
Care and hygene
Your toe will be washed and anti-septic applied. Phenol will then be applied to stop the nail regrowing. This is a completely harmless chemical. Your toe will be dressed to prevent any infection getting in and for maximum comfort. You’ll come back again the following day for your dressing to be changed. We will then see you a few more times and show you how to change the dressing yourself in the comfort of your own home (you can expect to have been completely healed within 3-6 weeks).
You can go back to work the following day or perhaps the next, depending on your occupation.
