Our Primary Services

Verruca Treatment

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.

In some cases, complications can set in that can be painful. Verrucas can be a real nuisance as they can be both painful and restrictive.
We use the following methods for treating verrucas; chemical cautery and cryosurgery using liquid nitrogen.

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.

common concerns related to toenail surgery and verruca treatment

If you do need surgery to deal with your ingrown toenail, you may feel slightly anxious about what’s involved. Here are answers to some commonly asked questions regarding the day of surgery, the surgery itself and aftercare.
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.

How much of the damaged toe nail will you remove?
We endeavour to remove as little of your toenail as possible. Sometimes, depending on the pathology of the toe, it may be necessary to remove the whole toenail. No skin is cut during the surgery. Your damaged nail will not grow back.
